More than just intrusion detection
Alarm systems are always coined as intrusion detection devices. They are mounted within your business and are seemingly solely used for prevention of break-ins. Alarm systems can help with more than just intrusions. Alarm systems can monitor for floods, power outages, fires, gas leaks, low or high temperatures and so much more. Alarm systems are more than just a simple security device. They are very sophisticated safety devices and also integrate into or create a smarter business or home. Alarm panels also allow for remote login into the unit, allowing you to arm and disarm, but also to adjust your thermostat from anywhere in the world.
Burglary is the obvious part that an alarm system exists to prevent. With door, window, motion and glass break sensors the system can protect your business and home from intrusions. Alarm systems allow for the immediate detection of an intruder, and will significantly reduce the time an intruder will be able to spend within your premises. This can not only help protect your intellectual and valuable property, but also greatly reduces the chances of a break-in. Break-ins are becoming more and more of a threat every day, securing your property is no longer an option, but a necessary.
A not so well known use for alarm systems is safety. Alarm systems can sense smoke or extreme heat within a building and alert accordingly. There are also sensors that will monitor for flooding, CO leaks, gas leaks and low or high temperature events. All these sensors allow to protect you, your family, your customers and your building from any harm the environment may cause. Not only will the system alert you, but we will know about it and can dispatch the according authorities. Panic switches are another feature of alarm systems, that can alert your monitoring station and the police in case you are in distress.
Remote access to your security, safety and convenience features can be quite helpful. With immediate alerts of anyone entering or exiting your premises, live information on all the sensors within your building and the ability to use your smart devices on the go, remote access has something for everyone. With an easy to use app, or web-interface you can get connected to your alarm system within seconds. From there you can see the status of all your sensors, whether the system is armed or disarmed, and you can control all your smart devices, such as thermostats, smart light switches and more.
