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.
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.
Emergency Locksmith Services:
Not all professional locksmiths provide 24-hour services, but this is a service which can come in handy at all hours of the day. Some providers offer emergency locksmith services within security system packages to ensure homeowners or business owners have a backup plan if for any reason they are locked out of their residence or place of business. Individual contractors and professional locksmiths may also provide 24-hour lock services.
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.
Video Doorbell Installation:
A Video Doorbell is a smart doorbell that notifies the user via smartphone or another electronic device when someone arrives at their doorstep. It is triggered by a built-in motion sensor or when the visitor rings the doorbell. It is the latest and most popular in smart home products, created for customers looking to enhance their security systems. It allows the user to use a mobile phone app to communicate with the visitor in real-time. Video doorbells come equipped with high definition cameras and night vision. Some even allow the user to open the door remotely using a smart lock. Some video doorbell installations are DIY projects that can be done by the customer. Other video doorbells require professional installation performed by a certified expert that will configure the video doorbell properly, which may have an extra cost.
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.
