Business Security

Why do I need a monitored, electronic security system to protect my business?

A monitored, electronic security system is like having an entire team of security personnel protecting your property, inventory, customers and employees 24 hours per day. �It is the most effective and reliable business intrusion defense, robbery protection and life safety system available.� Locks, bars and dogs can easily be defeated.�� Security guards are only as effective as their skills and physical ability.� Patrol officers can routinely watch over your property but a good thief can easily monitor their surveillance schedule.� With that being said, the most efficient electronic, monitored business security system is one that is professionally designed and installed according to industry standards and State licensing laws.� A licensed security system contractor or technician is trained and certified by a nationally recognized professional association.� He or she is, also, insured and/or bonded.� Therefore, he or she has passed a DCI background check and has demonstrated an established minimum standard of excellence.

For optimum system reliability it is very important to have your system professionally designed, installed and maintained.� A trained technician or knowledgeable sales representative can recommend the best type of detector for your specific commercial environment and activity.� The same is true for other components that complete your system.� For each component; the designer considers the uniqueness of your property and business activity.� These are important considerations that effect the reliable operation of your system insuring you receive optimum protection and user- friendly operation while minimizing the chances for user error and false alarms.

Additionally, a state-of-the-art electronic� monitored security system starts with basic unauthorized intrusion, burglary and robbery protection and, also, provides a platform for integrating trespassing and vehicle detection, fire detection, personal panic or medical alert transmitters, gas and water detection, room temperature monitoring,� camera surveillance, door access control, plus, automation control of heating & cooling systems.� Most of these features can be remotely monitored and controlled by you, the end user, on-line through your smart phone or computer. Today, systems can be monitored over traditional telephone (land) lines, the internet or by cellular radio transmitters with accuracy and detail.

Perhaps, if your business is a store, smaller office or operated out of your home, you�ve considered a pre-packaged, do-it-yourself system.� Even the most basic professionally designed and installed monitored system is far more effective and reliable than �boxed� systems.� Simply stated, a pre-packaged, one-size-fits-all security system will not provide you with the optimum protection for your life and property and will, ultimately, result in, both, a shallow defense system and more nuisance false alarms.� And, based on my 19 years of industry experience, once people start having false alarms, they, eventually, stop using their system.

Your security system begins with a professional design and continues as long as you have it maintained.� Throughout its useful life it is monitored by professionally trained emergency response operators at a UL certified monitoring station and, if needed, serviced by professional technicians.� When your business environment and activities change, the professional service technician can make certain you are always protected and properly informed about state-of-the-art technology.
