Types of Security Systems

Posted on by

There is a variety of security systems available on the market for both commercial and residential properties and premises. The type of system you install, will depend solely on your requirement and budget. The different types of security systems include but are not limited to:

CCTV installation

CCTV is the abbreviation for closed circuit television. It is a series of cameras/ video recording equipment linked together to monitor areas within a building. The installation of this security system is often carried out by a specialist engineer and can be fitted to either inside or the outside of your property or premise.

Door access systems

There is a range of door access systems available on the market. These include:

  • Keypad code entry.
  • Video entry.
  • ID card entry.

All of the above, and additional ways, can be installed as part of an access control system. This system provides a solution which allows you to monitor which rooms can be accessed by certain people. This is because without the correct identification, you cannot gain access to restricted rooms/ places.

Fire detection systems

In every home and business, there should be a fire detection system installed. In businesses, there should be fire exits, fire exit signs and the correct systems in order to be complaint with BS5839-1 2002 to all classifications. In houses, there should be a fire detection alarm installed.

These systems are used to discover fires in their early stages and notify the people in the building to escape/ evacuate the building safely. As well as provide a safe exit route.

Security lighting installation

This system is ideal for either residential or commercial installations. Security lighting acts as a deterrent to burglars as when the motion sensor light detects them, the light will be turned on and you will be able to take note of their features in order to inform your local authorities and furthermore, protect your local community and neighbours.
