Security Alarms and Intrusion Systems

When it comes to Security systems there are many varied and complex options to choose from. These range from non-monitored to 24/7 monitored services, from wired to wireless with advanced options for intruder verification, and a myriad of options in between. When choosing the best system contacting a professional should be your first choice.

Alarm system monitoring

At some point as you go through the process of researching alarm systems you will eventually come to this choice. In most situations we would recommend professionally monitored systems as for just over £1 a day you will have the peace of mind knowing that a team of licensed security professionals are monitoring your home or business 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Self monitored systems are exactly the same alarm system as the monitored versions except they have been programmed with your number, so you are responsible for responding to the alarm. Many people choose this option to save money but often end up changing to monitored to give themselves peace of mind and the freedom to turn off their mobile phone.

Non monitored alarm systems are possibly the least effective option because the alarm activates without any further action.

Wired vs wireless installation

Generally most alarms are wired as this is the easiest to maintain and the most reliable. However in some situations you do need to add some wireless components to a system especially when it is impracticable to hard wire in an area. With a quality system both should protect your assets as well as each other, however with the wireless components you may need to remember to change the batteries when required.

IP Digital CCTV Systems

So what is mega-pixel IP?  IP cameras use a standard network to transmit data directly in digital format over existing or new network infrastructure, or alternatively over a wireless network without the need to decode and convert between analogue and digital. 

What that means to you?

Mega-pixel digital IP CCTV systems are efficient but the main benefit to you is a very noticeable leap in picture quality, much like the difference between watching a DVD movie compared to a blue-ray movie. Once you have experienced a quality brand name IP system it is hard to go back.

Quality is the key when choosing an IP system. You are unlikely to get advanced picture quality with a cheap brand IP system yet ironically that’s exactly what you are paying for. These inferior systems are often the cause of constant network problems which are compounded even further when installed by people who do not understand computer networking.

Access Control and Biometrics

Access control enables you to control access to areas and resources in a given area using swipe cards, pin codes or other digital devices. Biometric access control systems will utilise some form of scanning to recognise a user via human characteristics such as a fingerprint or iris scan etc to verify access rights.

Access control

We use some form of access control each day or at least more regularly that most people think. The vast majority of larger buildings have access control systems in place. These range from swipe cards at hotels, resorts and city offices through to businesses that need to know who is on-site and to control their access to different areas.

The primary reasons for access control are:

  • To control who has access to which areas
  • To have a record of which people have accessed certain areas and when

The benefits of access control are:

  • To have a significant improvement in security for both assets and people
  • To be easily able to identify who has accessed certain areas

Biometrics?

Biometrics is the science and technology of measuring and analysing biological data. This means basically that biometrics senses and then quantifies human characteristics into a mathematical formula thus allowing accurate comparisons.

Biometrics is now becoming more commonly used. Some of the most popular small scale uses include:

  • Laptops utilize fingerprint scanners to log in
  • Entrance fingerprint scanners for homes, small businesses and large scale projects
  • Time clocks for small to large businesses

In information technology, biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyse human body characteristics, such as DNA, fingerprints, eye retinas and irises, voice patterns, facial patterns and hand measurements, for authentication purposes.
