Types of Burglar Alarms
Keeps Troublesome Individuals Out of Your Workplace
Before modern technology, dogs provided the best security: they literally smell when something is amiss and give off warnings no one can miss. But dogs cannot call police and fire departments, tell you about specific problems, or record events. They also may not detect stealthy thieves or the beginnings of a disaster.
Today's technology provides rapid detection of all types of emergencies, blocks access to unauthorized persons, and keeps a record of what transpired.
When choosing a security system, it's essential to understand the differences between hard-wired and wireless alarms.
Hard Wired Alarms
Hard-wired security systems are the ones you see in 1990s thriller movies. The bad guy uses his special wire clippers to sever the system's communications, disabling or shutting off the alarm. This fictional (and unrealistic) circumvention of the system happens in the movies because hard-wired systems rely on cabling that runs throughout the facility.
But disabling a hard-wired system through wire cutting is much more challenging when it runs on a closed-circuit—closed-circuit alarms sound when something interrupts the flow of electricity, such as when a burglar cuts wires. In addition, they offer the advantage of being resistant to interference, a weakness of wireless burglar alarms.
Hard wired systems work everywhere. Verified Security just needs to install the cabling. They are a bit more costly than wireless systems because of the more complex installation methods.
Wireless tech allows for faster installations at a lower price, with no cabling required.
However, wireless systems function only in specific locations because a strong signal must be present for the system to operate. In addition, because wireless signals grow weaker with distance, wireless systems work best at smaller facilities.
Types of Sensors
Modern tech makes successful break-ins very difficult when we place sensors at all the vulnerable points.
When we think of points of entry, doors and windows naturally come to mind first. Many burglars possess the skills necessary to bypass a lock or to remove doors and windows. By deploying door and window sensors, we block this route of breaking and entering.
Glass breakage is a common form of illegal entrance and vandalism. By using glass breakage detectors, Verified Security ensures that as soon as a criminal breaks the window, the alarm sounds, and an emergency response commences.
Motion sensors work based on temperature fluctuations. When people move within a room, they distribute body heat. Motion detectors pick up this heat transfer, resulting in an alarm.
Beam detectors use infrared beams or lasers to sense motion. They work like the chimes in a retail store that sound when someone enters. When a person interrupts the beam, the alarm is triggered.
Of course, all the intrusion detection in the world does no good if no one monitors the alarm system. Verified Security provides 24/7/365 monitoring service through several different technologies.
Telephone lines connect your alarm system to our central monitoring station, alerting security personnel when an intrusion occurs. Because telephone lines usually remain in operation during power outages, they are considered an essential communication source.
Cellular modules communicate with the central station monitoring center via cell towers. These provide a helpful resource because they operate even when power is out, and cutting telephone lines won’t disable them.
Internet connections also serve as a vital communications link with the central station. They allow for connectivity if phone lines go down, though they may be susceptible to outages during power failures.
Remote Access (App Control)
Apps have extended their influence into the security industry. Because of wireless connections, smart lock control and remote access to your security system is possible from any computer or smartphone. Should an alarm sound, you would receive a notification and can even access live stream video. You can also control systems within your facility, such as the temperature and security systems.
While you want to protect your premises from intruders, fires present a danger that can shut down a location for good. Fast emergency response is essential for saving the building and anyone unfortunate enough to be inside. Our monitoring services provide rapid responses to fire alarm signals.
Verified Security's fire alarm systems detect smoke and temperature increases and send an alert to our central monitoring center which can then dispatch the fire department. In addition, clients who opt for video access can see what is occurring inside their facilities. The fire department can use this information to locate the source of the conflagration.
Access Control and Video Surveillance Integration
Access control systems allow you to grant facility access (or access to certain areas) to authorized people only. They also document who enters and leaves and when unauthorized users try to gain access. When Verified Security integrates these technologies with video surveillance, surveillance cameras, and professional monitoring, you control access and obtain a visual record of facility activity.
