Business Security System

[sc:author ] business security system

You started with a desire in your heart for your own business.

Then that desire turned into a passion and through blood, sweat, and tears you grew that passion into a business. What a tragedy it would be if someone came in and took it all away simply because you lacked a security system! Don’t fall victim to vandalism or theft. The professionals at Lelch Audio Video can find the security solutions perfect for your business.

Business Security

No one likes a thief. You work hard for everything you have, and for someone to come in and take it away, is just inexcusable. From the random theft to the employee that slips money or inventory in their pockets when no one is around, you need to be protected. There are many ways to secure your business and assets, and a security system is one of the best options. Window and door sensors will also sound an alarm if any glass breakage or forcible entry is discovered.

Vandalism is described as an “action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property.” You don’t want anyone coming to your business to destroy everything you’ve worked so hard for in just a matter of minutes. Properly placed lighting with sensors can detect when someone with less than desirable intentions is on your property. Illumination of those dark corners can ward off those intruders. The installation technicians at Lelch can install whatever your office needs.

Business Security Systems Stop Thieves in Their Tracks

Video surveillance is vital for a security system as well, especially for businesses that keep a hefty amount of inventory on hand. Keep an eye on your assets with cameras strategically installed by a Lelch technician. An internet connection will ensure that you are fully aware of what’s happening at work, as you can look in on your business anytime you desire. You can even have alert notifications sent to your phone or other smart device if anything unusual is detected.

Protect Your Livlihood With A Business Security System

Business owners have to be proactive to protect everything they’ve worked for. Sticky-handed employees, thieves, and vandals can ruin years of hard work and take a prosperous company down in very little time. Don’t let this happen to you. Lelch has systems that can be tailor fit to any business, large or small. Our installation experts will get your office secured in no time. Give the professionals at Lelch Audio Video a call today and protect your business.

Home Security Minneapolis - Protecting Your Home

If you have ever had your home broken into, you can confirm that the tangible objects are not the only things that are lost. The violation rips away your sense of security and peace of mind. And for those who were present when the intruder came in, the terror typically takes a lot longer to overcome.

A security system can empower homeowners and enable them to take back their peace and comfort. There are many components of the typical unit, and Lelch Audio Video helps homeowners design and customize the system to fit their home and lifestyle.

Individual Security Components - What Makes Up a Typical System

One category of components are the input devices. This would include window and door sensors, glass break sensors, and motion detectors. The sensors and detectors trigger the alarm system when a break in occurs. There are also 24 hour input devices that will work whether the security unit is activated or not. These such devices would be fire/smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and water leak sensors.

Next is your output devices. Sirens and strobe indicators would be the typical output devices. These components scare off intruders as well as alerting the homeowners, neighbors, and first responders that something is wrong. The strobe lights are particularly important for the hearing impaired, while the horns and sirens can warn those with vision challenges.

Arming and Disarming Your Security System

The alarm panel and the keypad cannot be forgotten. The alarm panel is the brains of the operation. It contains the main circuit board, the power supply and battery backup, the phone line connection, (wireless/cellular monitoring also available) all packed neatly inside a secure metal box. The keypad is used to arm/disarm the unit, perform diagnostic and programming tasks, and it will advise you where the alarm was tripped.

A home security system will not only make your family more secure inside your house, but it can also buy you valuable time when an escape is necessary. Having an early warning of a fire or other problem, will enable you to gather the family and pets and make a safe departure. This is possibly the most important component of the entire unit!

Secure Your Stuff and More Importantly, Your Pets and Family Members

The safety of your family is something that should not be compromised. Possessions can be replaced, even the priceless heirlooms and pictures, but people cannot. Having a home security system can protect those you love and even the treasures inside your house. Peace of mind is easy to obtain, however once stolen it is difficult to recover. Get an alarm system on your home before you need it. You will be glad you did.

Early Warning of Impending Disaster

The first alert of a smoke alarm or water leak indicator can mean the world to a homeowner. Having a smoke alert will give you extra time to gather your family and pets and escape safely. Just a few more minutes could be lifesaving! Early indicators can also save you money. Imagine coming home and discovering your home completely flooded because your water heater broke. A water leak sensor could have saved you from costly repair bills, as it would have let you know that there was a malfunction in the home thereby allowing you to get the water shut off quickly.

Burglars and Prowlers Don't Want to be Announced!

Homes should also have a siren or strobe light as part of the security unit. Most intruders won’t stick around with a lot of noise and lights calling unusual attention to a residence. Most families will sleep sounder knowing that measures have been taken to keep them safe inside, and also because they will be alerted should anything or anyone tamper with the house.

Possessions can be replaced, but the lives of your family members cannot. However, there are some tangible treasures that you don’t want to have to replace. Antiques, pictures, jewelry, and other priceless memorabilia should be protected as well. It doesn’t diminish the value of the people around you, but these things shouldn’t be overlooked. Having a security system can protect everything from family heirlooms to the family goldfish.

Modern Alarm Systems have many Integrated Components

There are many components of the typical alarm unit. Some previously mentioned are smoke/fire detectors, water leak indicators, sirens, and strobe lights. Other devices you might want to consider are door and window sensors, glass break sensors, motion detectors, main panel, and the keypad. Some of the features will work even if the unit is not activated, such as the fire detectors and water leak alerts.
