5 Important Things to Know Before Purchasing a Commercial Security System

image

If you are ready to install a security system for your commercial building, you are going to find a wide array of options. Selecting the right cameras, alarm systems and access control options is imperative to your business’s overall security. Before diving in and purchasing the first items that come your way, be sure to consider the five factors here.

1. What quality of stream will the cameras provide?

Quality systems will provide HD streaming. However, the top-of-the-line options are going to offer 20+ megapixel, loss-free, HD streaming. This ensures you won’t miss any important details that are crucial in emergency situations, when completely clear images are required.

2. How easily can the system be scaled up?

While more affordable systems are fine, what happens when you need to add on? The fact is, trying to integrate new access entry points or surveillance cameras can be costly. Choosing a system you can scale up – infinitely – is the best option.

3. How easily will the system integrate with the existing IT hardware you have in place?

You should never attempt to install a security system that runs on a system separate from your IT infrastructure. This will cost more and create serious issues when it is time to scale up.

4. How long will installation take?

You need to find a security system that provides simple installation. Keep in mind, you may experience downtime while this is being done, so you need to ensure it will be as minimal as possible.

5. What happens if an outage or power surge occurs?

If there is a power outage, criminals have an “open door.” Avoid this by ensuring you choose a system with adequate backups in place. This will ensure your system is always on and working.

5 Benefits of Installing Smart Locks In Your Home

Have you lost your keys again? Is your mom from 800 miles away waiting outside your home – and you’re still at work? Are you worried that you forgot to lock the door – again?

Do you know what all these situations have in common? They can all be solved with smart lock technology. If you have considered installing this in your home, then learning about the specific benefits it offers can help.

1. Control Your Locks with Your Phone

You can pair the Bluetooth on your phone with your smart lock to lock or unlock the fixture. This is a great feature if you have lost your keys. Also, you don’t have to worry about carrying a huge ring of keys everywhere you go – it’s a win win!

2. Send an e-key to Friends and Family Members

When you have a smart lock installed, you don’t have to worry about people waiting outside if you aren’t home. You can send over an e-key, which is delivered via a mobile app.

3. Your Lock Knows When You’re There

Thanks to integrated technology, there are some smart locks that actually “know” when you get close. As a result, they can be programmed to unlock when you are close enough or lock when you get too far away.

4. Smart Locks Provide Superior Security

Smart locks don’t use keys. This means they are extremely difficult for criminals to get through. Also, the digital encryption mode used can’t be broken or duplicated. As a result, your house is much more secure than if you were using a traditional lock.

5. Ideal for Physically Impaired and the Elderly

Thanks to quality technology, such as smart locks, life has been made much easier for the elderly and disabled. With this technology installed, someone who is disabled, or a senior citizen doesn’t have to worry about struggling with their keys.

3 Apps and Gadgets to Help Keep Your Children Safe

image

There’s no question that it’s a scary world we live in. Every day it seems as though there are several Amber Alerts issued because of missing children somewhere around the country.

If you are like most parents, you want to do whatever is necessary to ensure your kids are safe at all times. Due to this need, there are now a multitude of apps and gadgets to help you keep your little ones safe. Learn about 3 popular tech-products you can use.

1. Mommy, I’m Here, Child Finder

Every parent’s worst nightmare is losing track of their child. Unfortunately, most kid’s natural curiosity causes them to wander off from time to time. This device allows you to attach a teddy bear shaped device to your child’s wrist or ankle and then you have a tracker to hold on to. If you get separated, you can push the button and the tracker will make a loud shrieking sound.

2. Amber Alert GPS V3

For older kids, this is a great gadget. You can put the tracker in a pocket and it comes with a two-way feature. Parents can track their child’s location with it, and children can hit an “SOS” button if they are in trouble. This will initiate a two-way call between the parent and the child. The device has even been integrated with information from the National Sex Offender Register, which will alert you if the child is within 500 feet of an offender’s property.

3. PoolGuard In-Ground Swimming Pool Alarm

Did you know that drowning is the number one cause of death in children under the age of four? If you have a pool, then there is the possibility that your child may get into the water without you knowing it. The alarm can be installed easily and if something that weighs over 18 pounds hits the water, then it will give off a loud sound, letting you prevent a devastating tragedy.
