Security alarm system (Burglar alarms)
Security alarm systems are installed to detect and deter unauthorized entry into buildings, homes, warehouses or anywhere unauthorized people may enter. They consist of an array of detection devices to include motion sensors, door/window position sensors, glass break detectors and many other custom applications. These systems may also utilize temperature monitoring for building heat, coolers, high water detectors for drainage systems and of course fire detection , there are many other applications as well. The systems are generally controlled via digital keypads that operate the system and display the areas of protection onsite. The advances over the years have been quite remarkable going from single zone or loop to hundreds of zones for large complexes and residences. These systems can automatically arm and disarm at preset times and be operated remotely via telephone networks. A great number of audible and visual devices can be employed to warn intruders of alarm activation and visual strobe lights to direct authorities to the premises. Most systems are remotely monitored at approved monitoring centers where authorities are dispatched and owners notified.
Access control systems
Access control has become a standard system in many buildings today due to its ability to lock and unlock buildings on a schedule. Access control consists of secured doors that can be unlocked using a personal card or fob, that when presented gives the user a preprogrammed amount of time to pass through the door. These systems are expandable from 1 door to hundreds of doors; all information is stored in a database and can be accessed to find out who passed through what door and at what time. These systems can also offer different levels of security where access can be denied from an area or on a time schedule.
