Areas of Expertise:
A security system is a combination of devices and services which work to protect a residence or business against the threat of invasion or intrusion. Security systems sometimes serve as protection from natural disasters as well. Residential, commercial, and industrial customers alike use security systems to safeguard against theft (burglary) and property damage. Security systems are available in a range of formats, levels, and pricing packages. They may involve professional installation or DIY installation. Whether these systems are intended to protect against a single incident or high threat of invasion at all times, they may involve a number of components, such as video cameras, alarm systems, smart home automation, notifications, smart locks, smart sensors, and more.
Smart Home Automation:
Smart home automation offers the latest in security system technology, providing a way for homeowners or business owners to monitor their security through a smart device or home base or hub control panel. Automation syncs both security system components and other smart home features, such as thermostats. From a security system app, users can control their smart locks, window and door sensors, receive notifications regarding carbon monoxide and heat sensors, and more. Smart home automation systems may be connected via wired or wireless systems and generally work alongside full security systems. They may be self-monitored or professionally monitored.
A locksmith is a service professional who provides key and lock services. For homeowners and business owners, a locksmith can break a lock, replace locks, duplicate keys, unlock mailboxes, and make replacement keys. Locksmiths are trained professionals who can offer lock-related services without breaking or damaging locks or doors. Some locksmiths may be able to offer the same services for smart locks as well. While breaking into certain locks may mean replacing the lock, this route is still often less costly than alternative entry methods. Security system providers may offer locksmith-related services under plan warranties, which helps users avoid destroying equipment.
Home Theater Systems:
A home theater system combines a range of home entertainment features to recreate the theater experience. Some of these features include surround sound, lights, TVs, DVD or Blu-Ray players, and speakers. While all home theater systems include surround sound, not all surround sound systems are used for home theaters. Users may select professional or DIY installation for their home theater system, but professional installation is recommended due to the intricate wiring often involved in these systems. Home theaters may also pair with home automation systems to allow users to control their system via a smart device.
Security Camera Installation:
Security cameras, also called CCTV, are used within security systems to help users monitor a certain area. Unlike surveillance cameras, video cameras send signals to a monitor at a specific location and don’t necessarily connect to an IP network. Security cameras serve to help thwart home crime attempts, including theft. Cameras may be placed in plain sight or hidden, depending on security system needs. A variety of security system cameras are available, ranging from video doorbell cameras to a number of different indoor and outdoor cameras, and cameras may involve self-monitoring or professional monitoring. Installation of security cameras depends on user needs and the security system provider, but either DIY installation or professional installation may be available. Professional installation helps avoid wiring issues and other issues that may arise during DIY installation.
Residential Security Services:
Some companies and certified professionals provide solutions that are focused on delivering a set of products and services for residential customers only. They are designed to fit any home’s needs, from certified locksmiths and electricians to home security systems, home automation, and home theater systems. Companies offering residential services dedicate themselves to provide excellent service to customers who live in different types of homes, from small apartments to larger homes.
Lighting Installation Services:
Most lighting in homes and businesses are now energy-efficient LED (light-emitting diodes) lights. However, new lighting devices and fixtures should be professionally installed by licensed technicians. A lighting technician can provide installation, repair, and service of all lighting devices, fixtures, and products, for both indoor and outdoor lighting. Lighting technicians may offer regular service contracts for repair and maintenance and even help home and business owners choose optimal lighting solutions.
Low-Voltage Wiring Services:
Low-voltage wiring requires professional installation. Yet it may not require installation from an electrical technician, because it does not carry the same electrical current as high-voltage power outlets, switches, and fixtures in a home. Because of this, many home security system providers may offer to install low-voltage wiring as part of their installation package. Depending on the provider, this service may cover installation, repair, and system replacement.
Smart Lock Installation:
A smart lock is an electromechanical locking device that achieves locking and unlocking operations on a door. It receives instructions from an approved device, such as a smartphone or tablet, using a wireless protocol to complete the authorization process. Smart locks can grant remote access using a mobile app or key fob, without requiring a traditional key. It also monitors access and sends notifications for different events related to the status of the device. Smart locks can enhance security systems while adding convenience and utility to its owner. They are considered an extension of home automation, being also able to work together with a smart doorbell to let the user see who is at the front door. Smart locks are designed to replace traditional bolt locks on a door. Some devices are designed for DIY installation, while others may need a professional installation service. A professional installer will connect the smart lock onto previous mechanical clamps, upgrading simple latches or deadbolts. Many smart locks are battery-operated, while others come with external jacks to hook up to a 9-volt battery, for a more reliable backup power source. The expert technician can get all the installation and network set up, guiding the customer in how to use all the features that come with a smart lock.

I wasn't home when Tom (owner) came to our house to fix a simple problem we had with the new bluray we bought during the last holidays. We couldn't make it work, we are not tech-friendly, so we called for hepl and they came the next day, on time and my wife let them in; fixed the issue and made it work, because we had an additional soundbar that I had no clue how to install it. All works well thanks to 1 sound choice.
