Founded in 2003, 1st Defense Security Systems offer alarm systems, burglary systems, home theater installation, and monitoring surveillance installation.
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.
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.
Burglar Alarm Installation:
Alarm systems work to alert homeowners or business owners to the threat of intrusion. These systems can be standalone security systems, or work in combination with a larger security system, including home automation. The alarm system serves as the control panel for all sensors involved in the security system, meaning that sensors report to the alarm system so the alarm can sound in case of intrusion. Typically, alarm systems have sensors which trip when motion is detected, such as opening of doors or windows. When the sensors are tripped, the alarm sounds within seconds. When paired with home automation systems, residents or business owners may receive notifications regarding the alarm. Alarm systems may be controlled by the home security base or hub.
Professional Monitoring Services:
Professional monitoring services are offered as a part of many security system packages. These services work by connecting a security system provider’s monitoring center to the alarm system or surveillance cameras of an individual residence or business. When a security system control hub is tripped due to a motion sensor alert, the hub sends a signal to the monitoring center, which is monitored by a live person or security guard. The person then contacts the residence or business owner right away to verify whether a false alarm is taking place or whether there is a possible security threat. If the security system holder can’t be reached, the monitoring center personnel contacts the appropriate authorities.
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.
Commercial Security Services:
When talking about commercial services, it is referred to solutions meant only for businesses, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, buildings, and so forth. Specialized companies and certified professionals focus on corporate clients to provide an array of services. These services are engineered to meet the clients and their corporation’s needs, from building lockouts, electrical installations, to business alarm systems and smart business implementations. Commercial services supply installation, upkeep, and repairs on such things as locks, HVAC systems, electric wiring, business alarm, and monitoring systems. Commercially-focused companies are known for their high-quality services for clients with different business-related needs, from small retail stores to complex office buildings.
Fire Protection And Prevention Services:
Many security system providers offer fire and smoke alarm system monitoring to help prevent home and business fire damage. Professional fire prevention services involve monitoring the smoke detectors, fire alarms, and carbon monoxide detectors. If the alarm system is tripped due to the presence of smoke, CO, or heat, these sensors will typically be tripped. When the monitoring center receives an alert from the alarm system, they will first try to contact the alarm system point of contact (homeowner or business owner). If they don’t answer, the monitoring center personnel will contact emergency services immediately. These services are not typically included with every security system package, but with certain plans which include professional monitoring.
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.
