How Does An Automated Security System Work?
Take A Look At How Your Security System Takes Steps To Keep Your Business Protected
While you might not be at your Waco, TX-based business 24/7, your assets and equipment are on the premises throughout the day, and they require round-the-clock protection in the form of a security system. Typical security systems only send out an alarm on the property when they detect an intrusion or any security breach.
With an automated security system, you can be sure your property is protected day and night and that you will be alerted of any threats to your business so you can have peace of mind even when you're at home. Take a closer look at how automated security systems actually work so you can maximize their potential.
When the security system is installed, there are feedback loops supported by sensors that detect any change in normal behavior. Some commonly used sensors include motion sensors, which can detect when any door is accessed, and fire and smoke sensors that detect the presence of smoke in case of a fire. The sensors are connected to surveillance cameras, and they use analytics to identify if the disruption is a security concern that needs to be communicated forward. Additionally, sensors can be linked to access control solutions to activate lockdowns or facilitate evacuations as needed.
Alarm And Alert
If the system detects a breach, a warning or notification is sent to your phone, and you can easily access these surveillance cameras to see exactly what's happening on your property so you can take the necessary action. Additionally, local alarms also go off once the sensors detect anything awry on-premises. The alarm is broadcast through the internal intercom system, and it can also be connected with your smart lighting system. In certain situations, the blaring alarm and the bright lights are enough to deter intruders.
Involve The Authorities
With remote monitoring, security experts also alert the authorities if there is a break-in or a hazard such as a fire, gas, or a chemical leak. This system acts as a backup if you are asleep or if you simply missed a notification on your phone. The security system would also send a notification to your security monitoring agency, and they will also try to reach out to you before they contact the relevant authorities.
