5 Security Systems to Protect Your Home or Business

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, about 3.7 million burglaries occurred each year between 2003 and 2007. At Fire Pros, our fire protection contractors understand that you want to keep your family safe, which is why we offer home security options. Many of our security systems are also used for commercial buildings so you can prevent theft and vandalism.

Continue reading to learn what 5 security systems you should consider for your home or business.

  1. Card Access

Does your company handle sensitive information? Access control systems restrict certain areas so only those with enough clearance can enter. Employees simply use their access cards to get into areas needed for their jobs. For example, only the IT team and a few select people would need clearance for the server room. Card access not only helps you keep track of employees, but monitors entrances and exits.

  1. CCTV Camera

CCTV stands for closed circuit television. The signals from CCTV cameras are not publicized but rather sent to private monitors for surveillance. In addition to building and grounds security, CCTV systems can also be used to monitor traffic, inmates, and patients in medical facilities who may hurt others. Surveillance cameras also help you keep a visual record of activities, which is needed for places like banks and airports.

Many of our customers prefer to have both visible and hidden cameras. Visible cameras help prevent theft by letting people know they’re being watched. Hidden cameras capture the faces of burglars who are smart enough to turn away from visible security cameras.

  1. Infrared Motion Detections

Humans and animals give off infrared energy through heat. Our motion sensor alarm only goes off when it detects enough infrared energy to indicate a human or large animal. Otherwise, the natural temperature fluctuations throughout the day would be enough to trigger the fire alarm system. While motion detector alarms are typically used in homes, they can also be used for commercial buildings.

  1. Door and Window Contacts

Door and window alarms let you know if something is open or closed. For example, if a burglar were to open your bedroom window, it would trigger the window alarm sensor. We’ve also had customers use contact alarms for safes and jewelry drawers in their homes. Not only do window and door alarm sensors protect valuables, but they also give you peace of mind.

A door contact has two pieces. One piece is installed on the door or window while the other is installed next to it on the jamb.  When these pieces move apart, it’s caught by the sensor which triggers the alarm. If you wish to open a window to let in fresh air, simply disarm the system.

  1. Glass Break Sensors

glass break sensor triggers an alarm if it detects the sound of shattering glass. Since the sound of shattering glass is so unique, you won’t have to worry about other sounds in your home or commercial building triggering the alarm. However, if a burglar were to smash a window to enter your home, it would trigger the alarm and scare them off. The system is able to detect the sound of shattering glass from several feet in any direction.
