HOW SECURITY ALARM SYSTEM WORKS

HOW SECURITY ALARM SYSTEM WORKS

A security alarm system is a system designed to detect institution – unauthorized entry into a building area. Security alarms are used residential, commercial industrial military properties for protection against burglary (theft) or property damaged as well as personal protection against intruders.

A typical home security alarm system which includes;

  • A control panel, which is the primary controller of a home’s security system.
  • Door and window sensors.
  • Motion Sensors, both interior and exterior.
  • Wired or wireless security cameras.
  • A high-decibel given or alarm.
  • Yard sign and windows stickers.

The security alarm system control panel is the brain of the system. It carries out the electric function by processing the information it receives from various sensors and responding accordingly. For example, if a door or window is open while the system is disarmed, the control pane ignores the event. But, if a window is opened while the system is alarmed, it will immediately respond by sending to your alarm monitoring center and triggering an audible alarm.

Security alarm system panels have built in communication that transmit and receive signals via a phone line. These signals are sent to a central alarm monitoring center where trained dispatcher will contact you to verify the emergency situation and it necessary, contact the police or fire station on your behalf.

A security alarm system responds to a triggered alarm by activating physical alarms such as a siren and or strobes lights. These devices are used to scare an intruder away from your premises or alert you of a threatening situation such as a fire or the presence of carbon monoxide.

Infrasound detector works by detecting infrasound or sound waves at frequencies below 20hertz. Sounds at those frequencies are inaudible to the human ear. Due to its inherent properties, infrasound can travel distances of many hundreds of kilometers.  Infrasound signals can result from volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, gravity waves, opening and closing of doors, forcing windows, to name a few.

The entire infrasound detection system consist of the following components; a speaker as a microphone input, an order frequency filter, an analog to digital converter and finally a MCU processor which is used to analyze the recorded signal.

HOW SECURITY ALARMS ENSURE SAFETY OF PROPERTIES

HOW SECURITY ALARMS ENSURE SAFETY OF PROPERTIES

A security alarm is a system designed to detect intrusion-unauthorized entry into a building or area. Security alarms are used in residential, commercial, industrial and military properties for protection against burglary or property damage as well as personal protection against securities.

A security alarm system monitors and detects unauthorized entry to properties, homes and businesses alike and alert the property owner or authorized third parties to an intrusion. The best deterrent for burglars is a security alarm and it needn’t cost the earth to install an effective alarm.

Ultimately, an alarm system gives property owners the peace of mind they desire to protect their homes, families, businesses, and assets.

How to Plan and Install a Security Alarm

The control panel is the brains of the system to which detectors are connected. It analyses and actions signals from detectors and is operated by a keypad. Keypads are sometimes integrated into the control panel. LED keypads communicate alarm system status using LED indicators. LED keypads use text displays to give a fuller picture of the alarm status including event logs, entry and exit times of users, and ultimately enable speedy identification of alarm sources.

In the event of alarm activation, the keypads identify the problem and information the occupant of the cause and location of the alert.

Sounders and Sirens use different tones and rhythms to communicate the type of good visual deterrent for potential securities and quickly alert property owners and neighbors to an intrusion.

The strobe helps to identify the home when an alarm has gone off.

Communications device such as the Informal speech dialers send pre-recorded voice messages by telephone when an alarm is triggered. These messages can be sent to the home owner or nominated contacts either via landline or mobile phone. This is useful for isolated properties and allows actions to be taken when property owners are away from home.

BENEFITS OF ELECTRIC FENCES FOR HOMES AND COMPANIES

BENEFITS OF ELECTRIC FENCES FOR HOMES AND COMPANIES

An electric fence is a barrier that uses electric shocks to deter animals from crossing a boundary. The voltage of the shocking have effects ranging from discomfort to death.

Most electric fence are used for agricultural fencing and other forms of animals control, although they are frequently used to enhance the security of sensitive areas, such as military, installations, prisons and other security sensitive places

Electric fences are designed to create an electric circuit when touched by a person or animals.

An animal fence energizer converts mains or battery power into a high voltage pulse. The energizer releases this pulse on to an insulated fence line about once every second. The pulse itself is only around 150 microseconds long. This pulse is commonly referred to as the ‘shock’ and is felt by any animal or human which touches an electric fence. When human makes contact with the fence the circuit is complete. It is at this point the human receive a shock.

#1: Electric fencing offers a safer alternative than conventional barrier fences such as barbed wire and woven wire.

It is less harmful than many fence types, which routinely cut, gouge and scrape livestock, leading to expensive vet bills and production losses.

#2: An electric fence can perform the same task as a conventional fence using much less materials.

Depending on the length of the fence where the cost of the energizer may be spread over, this type of fencing generally proves to be cheaper than standard stock fencing.

#3: It places a 24 hour monitor on the perimeter. If wired correctly the electric fence will go to an alarm when the ware is cut or shorted.

The electric fence will have served its purpose as an early warning device should the above occur. Unlike most house burglar alarms it will inform you at the property boundary.

#4: Although house alarms are of importance the advantage of correctly installed electric fence is that, either the person does not try to enter the premises or should the alarm be sounded the person is not already in the house or building and therefore time is on your side.

It is clearly a more attractive proposition around your home than a physical fence and does not require maintenance or repairs like a physical fence might.

#5: The cost of an electric fence will be much cheaper than the alternative such as wood, rail, vinyl, woven wire or barbed wire.

It is also much easier to install as compared to traditional fencing methods and barbed wire fences. The components are light weight and easy to carry. Also minimal planning is required, making the installation much faster. With barbed wire fencing, a lot more time is required to dig holes for the support poles and to transport the heavy components.

BENEFITS OF USING CCTV CAMERA AT THE WORKPLACE

BENEFITS OF USING CCTV CAMERA AT THE WORKPLACE

Close – Circuit Television (CCTV) camera is a TV system in which signals are not publicly distributed but are monitored primarily for surveillance and security purposes.

CCTV camera relies on strategic placement of cameras and private observation of the camera’s input on monitors. The system is called “Closed-Circuit” because the cameras, monitors and or video recorders communicate across a proprietary coaxial cable run or wireless communication link.

Access to data transmissions is limited by design. Modern CCTV camera displays can be high-resolution color, providing the CCTV administrator with the ability to zoom in on an image or track something (or someone). The CCTV camera allows the administrator to speak to people within range of the camera’s associated speakers.

CCTV camera is commonly used for a variety of purposes including:

  • Monitoring traffic
  • Obtaining a visual record of human activity
  • Maintaining perimeter security

There are undoubtedly huge benefits to the deployment of CCTV camera systems. The use in deterring crime is hard to prove, but is thought to be extremely effective. Customers entering a shop who know they are being filmed are significantly less likely to steal.

Members of the public who know that CCTV camera is continuously monitoring a hospital waiting room are less likely to assault staff. And also staff of the hospital will also treat members of the public good.

CCTV makes all our lives safer, since it can spot accidents as they happen – for example on the motorway – and send help immediately. It undoubtedly saves lives. Missing people are found, criminals are traced and accidents prevented with the use of CCTV at work place. Business and with them, livelihoods are protected from theft and monetary loss by the use of CCTV security system.

A CCTV system is able to view the recording after the fact. For example, a thief breaks into your office while you were out. Your video recording can be used in helping the police identify the thief and also be used as evidence in the event of a trial.

CCTV camera helps to keep an eye on what is going on. “The mice plays when the cat is away”. This expression applies for many places; which include the workplace. In addition to increasing employee productivity, installing CCTV cameras will enable you to view and know your surroundings from wherever you are, provided you have an internet connection.

CCTV camera protects private areas at the workplace, in a case of having an area or certain documents that are off limits to certain employees instantly CCTV cameras is the best solution to stop forbidden employees from entering these areas.

CCTV cameras never lie, if camera do not deter a crime, be it one committed by an outside or one committed by a staff member, they certainly clarify the facts. CCTV cameras help business owners to improve to improve the way they operate. By reviewing day to day operatives through the use of security cameras they can go back and isolate a problem in the way their employees perform a specific task.
