Home Security Systems
There are many good reasons to have an alarm system - to protect your property, possessions, your family, and to give you peace of mind.
The new era for alarm systems
ElecVision offers a new era of alarms and security. Alarm systems are a familiar product to many of us. Traditionally, an alarm system protects your home while you are away. The new era of alarm systems is here, with a host of new features - fire detection, event monitoring, remote control, and integration with your home automation system. For example, your alarm system can be used to turn off lighting, close the window shutters, and turn off the heating when you leave the house - less for you to worry about when you leave and saves you energy and money too!
While traditionally, energy management has been focused on commercial buildings, today's larger homes and greater use of lighting, heating, and air-conditioning, means it has applications right across the building spectrum.
Significant energy and cost savings can result from the automation of these systems and payback times are usually in the range of 2 - 3 years. Additional savings are also yielded from reduced maintenance costs due to the reduced running time of the equipment.
Our smart new level of security provides
- Partial arming to allow movement in designated areas.
- Personal "panic" buttons that can be carried around your home.
- Pet sensors to reduce false alarms when pets are left inside.
- Integration with home automation - lighting control as you leave or return home.
- Smoke detectors linked to sirens and strobes.
- Calls to your mobile phone when the alarm is tripped.
- Remote control of your alarm via phone or your mobile.
- SMS messages from the alarm system - know when the kids arrive home!
ElecVision offers a range of equipment from basic, small commercial / residential cameras, right up to professional Sanyo products to cater for more demanding commercial and high end residential applications.
Why not make use of our expertise in this area and ask us to help you with selection and design? Don't forget, we can also supply the cables, connectors, conduits, brackets, and fixings, so there's no need to go anywhere else!
Access control is often controlled by a security alarm system, although stand-alone systems are available. When integrated to home automation, they add convenience and ease of use. Keyless entry is now a popular option whereby some form of ID is presented to a reader and then doors are unlocked and security disarmed. Forms of keyless ID include proximity cards & fobs, numeric keypads, and biometrics, such as fingerprint and iris readers.
The fully integrated system
While some alarm systems have a limited amount of home automation functions built in, generally speaking, they do not have the power to control a full home automation set-up. In this scenario, a dedicated control system with an alarm system integrated into it gives a much more reliable and responsive system. See more information on C-Bus dedicated control systems.
A fully integrated alarm system is individually designed to meet the specific needs of your home and your family - alarm systems, CCTV camera systems, video intercoms, and keyless entry systems. The choice is yours!
