A home security system is commonly comprised of various components, including a professionally monitored or self monitored security system and video surveillance hardware. Typical ingredients may include various intrusion sensors on entry points into the home, motion or glass break sensors, and life safety devices such as smoke and CO2 detectors. These can either be hardwired or wireless depending on the system and whether it is an existing home or one that is under construction. Another vital element is the CCTV video system. In order to document or deter any undesired events that may occur, you will need home security cameras that can see and record the event and the perpetrator.
At Enhanced Home Systems, we offer many of the top Home Security Systems in the industry, including GE Security, Honeywell, Resolution Products and Alarm.com. Our expert staff will help you design a security system that addresses all the possibilities for your particular residence, as no two are alike. Should a particular entry point be protected by a door or window contact, or should it also include a motion detector in the event that the door or window is not actually opened during the intrusion? Is your sliding glass door likely to be shattered to gain entry, thus being a candidate for a glass-break sensor in addition to the standard door contact? There are many possible configurations to consider, and our team has the knowledge and experience to ask the right questions. Together, we will determine the most appropriate solution for your needs.
Security video cameras can either be hardwired or wireless, and have varying levels of performance parameters to choose from. Environmental considerations such as location and desired coverage area may help determine whether the camera must be an indoor or outdoor model, what type of resolution, field of view, or low light capabilities it needs to have, as well as connectivity options. DVR’s (Digital Video Recorders) can record and store video information locally, while other cameras are IP-based, meaning they can stream data to online storage or viewing devices. You can even view live or recorded footage from anywhere with your smart phone and get notifications sent to you if an event is triggered. With all of these choices available to the consumer, Enhanced Home Systems will help you choose the best combination of alarm equipment and home security cameras for your specific application.
