All home & Commercial security systems work on the same basic principle of securing entry points, like doors and windows, as well as interior space containing valuables like art, computers, and coin collections. Regardless of the size of your home or business, or the number of doors and windows or interior rooms we decide to protect, the only real difference is in the number of security components deployed throughout the building and monitored by the control panel.
The most basic definition of any security system is found in its name. It is literally a means or method by which something is secured through a system of interworking components and devices.
Access control can be by way of an intercom or by card, fob, finger scan even facial recognition. One of the most common ways for access control is by use of a card or fob. A person can swipe the card for entry the security control will give access as well as log the time and date of entry. Access can be set for 24-hour entry or limited to certain hours of the day or night.
Surveillance Cameras: Available in both wired and wireless configurations, can be used in several different ways as part of an overall security system to cover your home or business
Surveillance cameras can be accessed remotely on computers, smartphones, and tablets. They are often used in this method when home or business owners are out of town, to watch for deliveries and other service personnel and to monitor the arrival of children after school staff leaving safely.
They can also be used to record any security breaches, which could result in having footage of a home invasion, including a good look at the burglars and perhaps even the vehicle they drove.
A fire alarm system is number of devices working together to detect and warn people through visual and audio appliances when smoke, fire, carbon monoxide or other emergencies are present. These alarms may be activated from smoke detectors, and heat detectors. Alarms can be either motorised bells or wall mountable sounders or horns. They can also be speaker strobes which sound an alarm, followed by a voice evacuation message which usually state in the lines of “Attention, Attention. A fire emergency has been reported. Please leave the building via the nearest exit. DO NOT use elevators!" They may also be activated via Manual fire alarm activation devices such as manual call points or pull stations. Fire alarm sounders can be set to certain frequencies and different tones including low, medium and high depending on the country and manufacturer of the device. Most fire alarm systems in Australia sound like a siren with alternating frequencies. Fire alarm sounders in the United States can be either continuous or set to different codes such as Code 3. Fire alarm warning devices can also be set to different volume levels. Smaller buildings may have the alarm set to a lower volume and larger buildings may have alarms set to a higher level.
Intercoms are a way of communicating from door, gate, or room to room. IP video intercoms can be connected to call a Mobil phone, where you can see and talk to the person on the other end as well you are able to release the gate or open the door for them. There are one on one home intercoms as well intercom for multilevel buildings. For best advise and book an appointment for a free inspection and quote.
