Home Security and Burglar Alarm Systems
Home Security System and Burglar Alarm Installation and service by 3D Security Inc. in Henderson, Texas.
A Technically Correct Security System or Burglar Alarm should virtually never false alarm.
The world of Home Security Systems or Burglar Alarms has changed and continues to evolve.
3D Security Inc has been installing extremely accurate, “Technically Correct” Home Security Systems and Surveillance Cameras for almost 30 years.
The definition of a “Technically Correct” Home Security System hasn’t changed. Every Door and Every Window that opens needs to be covered. Windows that are Plate Glass or non-opening should be covered by Glass Break Sensors. This can be done using Hard Wire or Wireless Sensors. Smoke Detectors, Carbon Monoxide, Leak Detectors, Medical Panic all can be included. External Sirens are a mandatory part of a Technically Correct Home Security System. Each sensor should be its own named zone, such as “East Master Bedroom Window” Interior speakers need to be placed where you can always hear your alarm even when sleeping.
Electronic Doors Locks, Lights and Thermostat remote control are now part of many Home Security Systems.
Accurate Home Security Systems are a “must” for every reason. False Alarms have caused “Slower or No Response from Law Enforcement”’ Fines, and unwillingness to use your alarm for the fear of embarrassment.
Today with the Cellular modules and Smart Phones you can control all aspects of your alarm systems remotely. Arming and Disarming your Home Security System using your Cell Phones or Tablets and getting notifications when your system is armed or disarmed and by whom and when is a terrific help.
Home Surveillance Cameras
3D Security has installed Home Security Camera Systems for decades. High Definition Surveillance Cameras or Home Camera Systems have become commonplace, allowing homeowners to document all activities. Using the Internet you can view live cameras and recorded video using your smart devices.
Cameras have become smaller and have a higher performance level and recorders have become smarter and store events for a much longer period of time.
Wireless Security Cameras work well under certain circumstances like Home Health Care where the idea is to document and look in on how a loved one is being taken care of. Watching hired help and their activities is one of their primary uses. They are simple and fast to set up and while the video quality is less, it will work for some circumstances. Remember even wireless cameras need power, either plug in or batteries that have to be changed or recharged.
However the “Gold Standard” is High Definition Camera System that are wired directly to a recording device like a DVR or NVR giving the homeowner detailed video that is Time Stamped and Water Marked. This is especially true when recording events that take place outdoors where correct lensing and lighting become a huge factor on whether the video is usable. 3D Security has installed Camera Systems in Homes and Estates of almost every size from modest to massive.
3D Security has been installing top notch Home Security and Camera Systems with features like these from this equipment’s inception.
“Free Home Security Systems” have become commonplace. Massive marketing campaigns bombard us with the notion that substandard security is adequate.
Systems with a couple of door sensors and a motion detector is now accepted by the uneducated consumer as a “Real Home Security System”
Picking where someone will break into your home and leaving everything else uncovered makes no sense unless your goal is “Feel Good Security” or you own a home with one door and one window.
Depending upon a couple of Door Sensors and a Motion Detector to cover windows and doors that are without sensors has three real problems.
• If you are gone and your motion detector goes into “Alarm” that means someone or something is already inside your Home.
• If You are Home or you have pets that roam you can’t turn the Motion Detector on. Pet Immune Motions are a myth.
• The vast majority of False Alarms are caused by Motion Detectors.
Remember the purpose of your Home Security System when “armed” is to Deter and Detect any unwanted entry into your home before, not after someone is inside the house. Free Alarm systems seldom if ever have External Sirens so it’s possible your system is in Alarm and nobody outside is aware of the alarm.
National Security Companies have shifted the emphasis from “Real Security Systems” to a race to get Iron Clad Monitoring Contracts with minimum concern for the consumer safety or protection by using the absolute minimum amount of equipment and Monitoring Contracts that are virtually unbreakable.
This rush to the bottom has resulted in calling 800 numbers with extended wait times, slow response times for service issues, and False alarms.
Unfortunately, this has become the new normal for many clients of these national companies.
