Fire Protection – Alarms, Smoke, and Sprinkler Waterflow Detectors

Even if you have fire insurance, it’s far better to prevent a fire than to have one, make an insurance claim, and try to rebuild from the ashes. Many businesses never recover from a fire. You can get protected against total disaster with our fire code compliant fire detection systems. Manual pull fire alarms, supervised smoke detectors, and waterflow monitors all work together. Manual pull alarms are like the ones in many public buildings—once pulled the horns go off and the fire department is alerted. Supervised smoke detectors allow a fast response before the fire gets out of control. Water is a fire’s worst enemy but it’s not always your friend. Waterflow monitors minimize the water damage and flooding that happens when sprinklers go off; water can cause more damage than fire.

Access Control Systems

You can get access control systems to monitor your business. You can monitor your property (onsite or remotely) and employees and keep unwanted people from causing trouble. Locks with passcodes or keycards will let authorized people in and keep the bad guys out. Our software can be loaded onto the PC you already have. We have a wide variety of solutions and price points so let us know what you need and we’ll customize a solution just for you.

Burglar Alarms and Monitoring

Burglars are always a danger to your valuable inventory and business property. Our burglar alarms and systems let you know when someone is in the wrong place at the wrong time. You can get reports of exactly when your burglar alarm is armed and disarmed as well as who is accessing it. This is perfect for knowing when your business opens and closes. You’ll know if someone disarms the alarm late at night or before regular opening hours.

CCTV Security Cameras and Video Storage

Burglars aren’t the only source of theft. Shoplifters and even employees can be a major problem. Protecting yourself with camera monitoring is smart because it discourages theft; stealing is a lot less appealing to thieves if they know they’re being watched! Security footage is indispensable when you need evidence to show a judge. Camera evidence is hard to deny and will help to convict a thief and protect your business from theft, false claims, and other liabilities. We can set you up with 1 to 100 CCTV cameras, PC-based systems, and remote monitoring. One of our most popular packages is Honeywell’s 4-Camera Internet system—you can even monitor your business on your phone!

Business Background Music Source

Having a safe and secure business is important and it’s also key to provide an environment that makes customers want to spend money. Background music helps you control the mood and image of your business. We can supply all the relaxing and professional background music you need—perfect for offices and stores that need to convey professionalism.

Home Security – Systems for Every Budget

First AlertAs a homeowner, the notion of safety and security is one of your top priorities. No one wants to come home to find that they have been burglarized. People who have had this awful experience say they felt their lives were completed violated, as some stranger had gone into their private home and rummaged through their personal belongings.

One way to bring you some peace of mind is to install a home security system to protect your home. There are different types of security packages available that offer various levels of protection. Some systems not only protect the home and notify you of any unwanted entrance or breach, but can alert you if there is a fire or other dangerous situation at the house. Motion detectors can also be installed. In most circumstances, they are effective even in pet-friendly homes.

Other options for home security can include health safety. For example, if you have an elderly family member, a system can be set up to alert you should that person leave the house or get out of bed.

Home security systems today use advanced technologies to protect your property and your loved ones. Alarms are sent to the authorities as well as to you via cell phone. You may have the option to view your home (through the cameras installed) via the Internet from any remote location.

There are many choices out there to accommodate your comfort level.

For more information on home security, contact Secur-Tek at 919-387-1800.
