 What is a Full-Service Security Alarm Company?  We Are Glad You Asked

There are many different types of security alarm products available on the market today, each with its own unique features and benefits. In this article, we will take a closer look at some of the most popular options for home, commercial businesses, and office security.

Wireless Alarms

Wireless alarms are a popular choice for many homeowners and business owners because they are easy to install and do not require any complex wiring. These systems use radio signals to communicate between the various sensors and the control panel, making them ideal for buildings where traditional wired systems may not be feasible.

Wireless alarms can also be customized to suit the specific needs of each user, with options such as motion sensors, door and window sensors, and even remote monitoring and control via a smartphone app.

Wired Alarms

Wired alarms, on the other hand, are a more traditional option that has been in use for many years. These systems require a physical connection between the various sensors and the control panel, which can make installation more complicated.

However, wired alarms are often considered to be more reliable and secure than wireless systems, as they are less susceptible to interference and hacking. They are also typically more robust and durable, making them a good choice for larger buildings or high-security applications.

Smart Alarms

Smart alarms are a relatively new type of security system that incorporates advanced technology such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and internet connectivity to provide enhanced security features and functionality.

These systems can be controlled remotely using a smartphone app or other smart devices, and they can also learn and adapt to the user’s behavior over time. For example, a smart alarm might recognize when the user is away from home and adjust the security settings accordingly, or it might use facial recognition technology to identify and alert the user to unfamiliar faces on the property.

CCTV Cameras

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras are another popular option for home and office security. These devices allow users to monitor their property from a remote location, and they can also be used to capture footage of any suspicious activity for later review.

CCTV cameras can be installed both indoors and outdoors, and they come in a wide range of styles and configurations to suit different needs and budgets. Some models even offer advanced features such as facial recognition and automatic tracking.

Access Control Systems

Access control systems are a specialized type of security system that is designed to restrict access to specific areas of a building or property. These systems are basically keyless entry systems so instead of using a key access is gained through an electronic device such as a keypad, swipe card, or fob. Up until recently Assess Control devices were primarily used in office buildings but they have become so valuable to security entry that many businesses/commercial properties and even homes are not being outfitted with these products. Imagine knowing what time your child arrives home if he or she leaves, and what time they get back in. There are many applications and advantages that a keyless entry system can provide for all types of structures.

Fire and Smoke Alarm Systems- Fire Suppression Systems

Fire and Smoke alarm systems provided by professional security alarm companies always include 24/7 monitoring from a local central office complex. At ESI, we have invested in the construction, employment and specialized training of personnel needed to have a highly effective monitoring operation. Properly designed and installed, smoke and fire alarms provide detection and notification of an active smoke and fire event. We specialize in these types of alarm and fire suppressant systems for home, office, high-rise, condominium, commercial, warehouse, governmental applications, and industrial complexes.

Motion Detection Systems

At ESI we have traditional motion detectors and a product called Videofied. A motion detector designed for indoor and outdoor use, that is portable and has some very unique advantages over traditional stand-alone motion detectors.
