A security system is designed to detect intrusion or unauthorized entry into a building or designated space. Security alarms are typically used in residential and commercial settings for protection against burglary or property damage, as well as personal protection against intruders. Some alarm systems serve a singular purpose of defending against burglary, while other systems provide both life safety and intrusion protection. Systems range from small, self-contained residential alarm panels, to complex, multi-partition systems with computer control and electronic entry access.  Another vital component is the video camera - most alarm systems can be combined with closed-circuit television surveillance systems to automatically record events in progress and provide remote monitoring capabilities. Some alarms can even be tied into home automation and lighting control for added functionality, such as turning on all the lights in your home when an alarm event is triggered.


Keeping their family safe and their property secure is a high priority with most of our clients.  An effective home security system is composed of several elements, beginning with a professionally monitored or self monitored security system. A typical configuration involves a primary alarm control panel with various intrusion sensors on entry points such as doors and windows, motion, proximity or glass break sensors, and safety devices such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.  Depending on the brand and type of alarm system deployed, these sensors can either be hardwired or wireless, or a combination of both. 


A well-designed home security system provides a level of protection that no deadbolts can offer.  Ease of operation is also critical to maintaining effective control of your system.  Use a key chain fob to disarm your alarm as you pull into your driveway, or use the app on your smart phone or tablet to arm, disarm and check system status, even when you are on vacation far from home.  Notifications for various events can be pushed out to your mobile devices depending on what you need to know, and when.
