Features of a security system
At Shellharbour Security Systems we value each penny of the client’s money and we recommend and install equipment that is necessary for running a smooth and efficient system.
Control panel: this is the heart and control of the security system by allowing arming, disarming, sirens, strobes, locking, unlocking of doors etc. The control panel pings each installed component in the system and allows it to work via key commands or to follow certain protocols.
Door and Window Sensors: these work by sensing if the door or window has been opened. When the door or window are closed a circuit is formed. However, when the door or window is opened the alarm rings and alerts people of a security breach. This alarm also connects to our accredited A1 monitoring station so that it can quickly respond to any threats.
Motion sensors: these are necessary for protecting valuables that might be placed separately in a room. Any movement in the vicinity of the protected object sounds the alarm.
Cameras: A security system requires surveillance cameras where Shellharbour has both wired and wireless solutions for those in Albion Park. These cameras can be used for monitoring operations as well as keeping an eye on remote spaces as well as entry and exit points. These cameras can be accessed via phones or computers if they are connected to the internet.
Alarms: the alarm works as an alert so that people around the building can hear. It can also be used to scare off intruders.
Yard signs and stickers: these are important, and do not only market the security company. These are logos and brands that protect your property, and when you put these stickers on your house it tells others that the home is well protected and that there is a high possibility of them being caught if they attempt to intrude.
