What Do You Need to Know About Commercial Security Alarm Companies?

Commercial security alarm companies like ESI, Emergency Systems Inc. provide services to businesses and commercial properties to help protect against workplace violence, unauthorized access, burglary, vandalism, and other security threats. With over 40 years of protecting offices, retail establishments, commercial businesses, industrial, warehouse and governmental agencies, ESI is Jacksonville’s leader in providing commercial security alarm services.

Here are some key points to know about commercial security alarm companies:

Alarm Systems: ESI offers a variety of alarm systems tailored to the specific needs of businesses. This may include intrusion detection alarms, fire alarms, video surveillance, access control systems, sprinkler and fire suppression systems, gate operating and opening devices and more. The alarm system’s sophistication depends on the unique business offerings and the determinant layout and specific needs. 

Installation and Maintenance: ESI is a commercial security alarm company that handles the complete system design, recommended components and installation of the security system from start to finish. We even retrofit and can in many cases expand existing security systems to add components. We specialize in providing ongoing maintenance and support to ensure that the systems remain functional and up-to-date.

Monitoring Services: Many security alarm companies do not offer in-house 24/7 monitoring services. In the event of an alarm activation, the central monitoring center of ESI’s is alerted, and appropriate action is taken, such as contacting law enforcement or designated personnel. Our monitoring station is equipped with the most modern equipment and staffed with highly trained and professional personnel.

Customization: Businesses often need to customize their security solutions based on their unique requirements. This usually involves choosing specific sensors, cameras, access control features, and other components which the highly trained security alarm technicians at ESI are uniquely qualified.

Integration with Other Systems: At ESI we are highly trained to provide security system integration with other building management systems, such as HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) and lighting controls, to create a comprehensive security infrastructure.

Response Services: Some security companies offer additional services beyond monitoring, such as mobile patrol response or private security guard dispatch in case of an alarm activation. At ESI this is not our primary function but if these services are required, we have strong relationship and can make recommendations as to who can employ these services.

Compliance: Depending on the industry and location, businesses may need to comply with certain regulations regarding security measures. Professional security alarm companies like ESI can help ensure that their systems meet these requirements.

Remote Access: Many modern security systems allow business owners or authorized personnel to access and monitor their security systems remotely through mobile apps or web interfaces. ESI is on the cutting edge of handling these types of systems with their unique characteristics.

Training and Support: ESI as a commercial security alarm specialist provides training for employees on how to use the security systems effectively. Additionally, we offer customer support to address any issues or questions that may arise.

Cost Considerations: The cost of commercial security alarm services can vary based on the size of the business, the complexity of the system, and the level of monitoring required. It’s essential to understand the pricing structure and any additional fees associated with these services. At ESI we offer transparent pricing and written estimates on all services before the job is assigned.
