Safes and Alarms
Security alarms and video monitoring systems.
Alarm systems used to be expensive, complicated to manage and generally low resolution. Advances in technology and increased competition has brought the price down and the quality up. Now sophisticated systems with realtime notification are affordable for domestic use. These systems let you monitor your home security on your smartphone or tablet. The upside of a modern system is that you don’t need to pay a monitoring company monthly fees for back to base alarms.
With so many systems on the market, there’s one available for any budget. Lock & Door can help identify the best solution for you and install it.
Some of the benefits of a security system are:
- General home security – motion notifications and reporting to police.
- Home pool safety – monitoring on your smartphone or tablet.
- Workplace theft – cash register and stock monitoring.
- Customer service – when a customer enters your shop or is waiting at reception.
- Workplace safety – monitoring OHS compliance in the workplace and recording any incidents.
Video security systems can aid in claims processing if required and also reduce insurance costs.
It is essential to consider what features and functionality you require from your security system and how it relates to your overall security plan. You may wish to monitor your alarm system yourself via your smartphone remotely and not require a back to base system.
A local “standalone” alarm usually triggers sirens and strobes to get attention. Some can also notify you and show realtime footage via your smart device.
A wireless keypad at the main entrance point can be handy for arming and disarming the alarm system. Various systems also allow arming and disarming via remote control, keypad, RFID swipe tags or by using your smartphone.
Some questions to consider when selecting an alarm system.
- How many people will be using the system?
- Do you need back to base monitoring?
- Do you need internal and external monitoring?
- Do you require door and window sensors?
- Will you be requiring home/night arming for when you’re asleep at night?
- Do you have pets?
If you don’t need a full security system, then there are plenty of individual devices available to help secure your home, such as; induvial indoor and outdoor security cameras, video doorbells, motion sensors, and smart locks.
