There are many types of security equipment that are popular in Florida today.
- Access Control Systems. An access control system is common in businesses. It is a device that grants access to certain spaces via a keycard, a PIN, a thumbprint, or some other type of biometric. The purpose of this device is to protect sensitive areas. Not everybody needs to enter a police department office, a medical laboratory, or a bank vault. To help ensure that access is restricted to these areas, business owners can invest in access control systems. Homeowners who have home offices might consider this tool as well.
- Motion Detection Lights. This is a security classic. Late at night, nobody’s paying attention to what is going outside your home. All of the sudden, somebody is lurking by your garage. FLASH. The lights come on. Your wife looks out the window. “Honey, I think somebody is outside.” You take a look for yourself. It’s your son. He snuck out of the house. Caught! It could have been anybody though. Imagine if the lights had alerted you to a criminal. They scare off animals like racoons, too. They are actually more helpful than some people think!
- CCTV. Close-circuit television systems offer video surveillance. This technology has become just as popular at homes as it has always been in businesses. People enjoy the peace of mind they have knowing that crime is deterred thanks to this technology. If somebody does try something, the crime will be caught on camera! Then, you will have the evidence you need to find the culprit and seek justice.
- Burglar Alarm Systems. The classic. Burglar alarm systems notify occupants if somebody enters a property. If the person doesn’t have a code to disarm the device, the device makes a sound to scare off the intruder and notify occupants. Then, if allowed in your area and you subscribe to the service, the alarm calls 911 on your behalf. Police will be on the scene in a jiffy.
We saved for the best for last: burglar alarm systems. They protect against different types of crime like vandalism and burglary. They also can help you in times of emergency, if you suffer from a fire or carbon monoxide leak, for example. Here is some information on those situations:
- Vandalism: Security cameras (commercial and residential) in Florida and burglar alarm systems help protect your home and business from vandalism.
- Burglary: Burglar Alarm Systems in Miami Lakes and beyond can help prevent theft.
- Fire: If your house catches on fire, and the smoke detectors are linked to the system, the device dials the fire department on your behalf.
- Carbon Monoxide: Similarly, emergency medical services can be informed of any threats to health due to a presence of carbon monoxide.
