Electronic Security Systems
Modern security systems are a carefully planned strategic network of devices designed to alert the user to one or more types of critical events — intruder, fire, environmental, etc.
Sensors are connected to a control panel via low-voltage wiring or a narrow-band RF signal which is used to interact with a response device.
In the most common security systems, sensors are used to indicate the opening of a door or window or detect motion via passive infrared (PIR).
In the case of new construction, security systems are predominately hardwired during construction for most economical installation. As opposed to retrofit installations, these systems often utilize wireless technology for a faster, cleaner and less invasive installation.
Security systems range from small self-contained, single threat sensing with local a local alarm bell or vibrating horn, to more complex multi-zoned systems, with colour coded computer outputs, high definition/infrared cameras etc. — all monitored by a central station and even relayed to your smartphone simultaneously. We even offer a reliable, “No Worries” Personalized Alarm Response Service whenever you are unable to respond to your alarms in person.
