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.
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.
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.
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.
Access Control Services:
Access control systems are the main hub of security systems, providing access to or denial of entry to a given area. Access control is the combination of hardware and software in a security system that helps secure points of entry. These systems may include a security system’s control panel (its hub or computer), the system reader, and its smart locks/electric locks — as well as the components of these system parts. Typically, these systems require professional installation due to the wiring and connection requirements.
Remote Control System Installation:
Customizing a home security system to work remotely is easy to do. Customers benefit a great deal from remote control capabilities, particularly the ones who want to keep an eye out on family members. It is an incredibly valuable feature for customers who have a vacation home they wish to monitor or travel a lot. Remote control systems are a trouble-free, better way to connect the customer with a security system and smart home components. Remote controls deliver convenience and management over many devices, like security systems, live video monitoring, smart locks, environmental sensors, and many more. Remote control systems provide quick access using innovative technology products, such as keypads, key fobs, and keychain remotes. Many companies deliver smartphone apps, or subscriptions to the company’s website portal to manage the entire system remotely. Using the mobile phone app, the customer can arm and disarm the security system, control the temperature, turn lights on and off, all from the palm of his hand. Many home security companies include remote control devices and app access, along with its systems. Security companies or certified professionals can install the entire system, setting up all the components in the best placement possible. They provide assistance to the customer to learn to use the system for the first time. If any product malfunctions, customer support can help out troubleshooting and replacing the faulty item.
