Areas of Expertise:

Security System:

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.

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.

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.

Services Offered:

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.

TV Wall Mount Installation Services:

Many TVs are now mounted from a wall for ease of use, ease of access, and to save on space. However, for safety reasons, it’s important that TVs are properly installed. In addition, wiring can be complex, which may require professional installation. Some home appliance providers offer TV wall mount services as part of their installation services. Price of installation may depend on a number of factors, such as the size of the TV, whether the client needs brackets, and whether wiring services are needed.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
