Areas of Expertise:
A security system, in its most basic definition, is a structure of components to detect intrusion into a home or business. Security systems are used in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings to monitor and prevent theft or property damage. It is the cornerstone in defending any property against intruders, from indoor to outdoor surveillance. Some security systems operate with the single purpose of intruder protection. Other more sophisticated systems provide a combination of security methods, including fire detection, security monitoring, security guards, and CCTV surveillance. How a security system works in the event of a break-in will depend on the type of system installed, and the monitoring service purchased. Many security companies offer very affordable DIY systems, while others provide a more robust option as a professional security system. Professionally monitored security systems are a more reliable way to keep a home or business protected. It is considered normal in today’s technology that security companies enhance their systems with an array of smart automation products and third-party integrations. Products like indoor and outdoor cameras, smart locks, lights, thermostats, and more, are usually part of a more robust security system. However, due to the new product offering by security companies, the cost of these systems is now more accessible to the average customer.
Home Automation is the automatic centralized control of a home, called a smart house or smart home. It allows control over lights, thermostats, locks, shades, entertainment systems, appliances, and home security. A home automation system usually connects to a centralized Hub or Control panel, that works as the “brains” of the system through a local wired or wireless network. Numerous smart devices through third-party companies that share the same technology can be added to the smart home system to make it more robust. Home automation delivers the ability to program scenes for smart devices. It allows the user to schedule events, like turning on the lights when the doorbell rings or increasing the temperature of the thermostat when no one is at home. Nowadays, many home security systems come with home automation capabilities to bring comfort to the customer. Setting up a home automation system improves efficiency among smart products while delivering savings on utility bills. Home Automation systems typically require the installation by a certified dealer of a contractor to provide the highest quality of performance and factory standards.
Home Theater Systems:
Home Theater systems are home entertainment audiovisual systems designed to recreate a movie theater experience at home. It uses a mixture of electronic components, such as video and audio equipment. Typically, a home theater system consists of a large screen television or video projector with high resolution, surround speakers, a powerful amplifier, and a low-frequency subwoofer. A home theater is designed to experience effects from movie soundtracks throughout its surround sound, setting it apart from an ordinary television setup. Home theaters can be assembled by obtaining individual components or by purchasing a preset Home Theater System that has wired or wireless options. A professional installation is recommended with hardwired systems because of all the intricate wiring and calibration. An expert technician is crucial for wired installations since they have the know-how on setting up all the cables and configuring the equipment. The technicians will provide the Home Theater System up and running at optimal performance, and could even adapt it to be operated through a smartphone or tablet.
Low Voltage Wiring:
Low voltage wiring refers to electrical or network wiring where communication equipment and digital technology work steadily and efficiently. Low voltage does not carry the same electrical current as power outlets, switches, and fixtures in a home. It will not provide a shock from contact, as it is defined as being 50 Volts (V) or less. Nevertheless, it can cause sparks if there is a bad connection but usually will blow a fuse before anything terrible happens. The more common low voltages are 12 V, 24 V, and 48 V. Low voltage is supplied by a transformer that converts line voltage to low voltage. It is typically used for thermostats controls, alarm systems, doorbells, garage door openers and outdoor ground lighting amongst others. The most common applications for low voltage wiring are telephone outlets, wired LAN networks, cable broadcasting, and audiovisual equipment. Low voltage contractors offer a wide range of cabling services that include installation, repair, and full system replacement. This type of wiring requires a certification in low voltage, which allows the expert technicians to set up an entire network throughout a home or building. To ensure that the system is safe, with possible additional electrical upgrades, customers should hire a low voltage certified technician.
