Most home and business owners have, at least, a basic security system in place to help protect their property and valuables. Depending on the kind of security risks that one needs to protect against, most consumers have at least a basic intruder alarm or security camera system. For them, a basic security system is all they need – or is it?

The need for effective security systemsFind The Most Effective Security Systems NYC

Purchasing a security system for your home or business is not enough to keep you safe. The system has to be designed to fit the purpose, be reliable, and more importantly, be installed by a competent security installation company. The security system should be able to guarantee you peace of mind, regardless of your whereabouts. It should keep you aware of the happenings in and around your property at all times.

How to identify effective security systems

1.    Remote Management Capability

Traditional security alarms required the owners to turn them on before leaving their home or office. If one happened to forget to activate the system, they had no choice but to go back and do so. Alternatively, they would just go on with their day, having left their property unprotected, but just hope that nothing unbecoming happened.

Effective security systems allow home and business owners to remotely arm/disarm their security systems via their smartphones. As such, a property owner “takes” his/her security system with him/her everywhere he/she goes – on the road, work, dinner, vacation etc. On the other hand, you can remotely manage your security system. In the case of IP surveillance cameras, you can easily view security footage on your smartphone or other mobile devices. As such, you can login at any time to check for suspicious activity.

2.    Real time Alerts

The other way of identifying effective security systems is by looking at how a particular system responds when a breach is detected. Traditional alarm systems are fitted with “bells and whistles”, which sound an audible alarm to scare away would be attackers. However, such methods do not always work, especially for facilities that are in remote locations. Modern security systems go further, by sending SMS or real time email alerts, to let the property owner know about the impending danger.

3.    Monitoring Option

Effective security systems come with a monitoring option, whereby the system is hardwired to an emergency monitoring station. As such, your home or office will be monitored by security personnel at all times. In case of a breach, your security system sends out an alert to you and/or to the monitoring station. The monitoring station takes prompt action by contacting the property owner to verify if an attack is underway or if there is a situation that requires urgent intervention.
