Business Security Systems
If you are a business owner, you will want to do everything possible to make sure that your company and the people who work there are always safe and protected. A new security system setup can go a long way towards making this possible. Our business security system kits offer everything a business needs to get started. With the right set up, a business of any size can be fully protected and secured. Whether your business is a small company with just a few employees or a large corporation with thousands of workers, Alarm Grid has what you need.
A security system can actually be broken down into just a few major components. At the center of a security setup is the control panel. This is the piece of hardware used to operate the alarm system. Any alarm sensors that are set up with the system will report to the panel. In the event of an alarm, it is the panel that will send an outbound signal to the user or a central monitoring station. Any time a user goes to arm or disarm their security system, they will interact with the panel. Alarm Grid offers many different panels from outstanding manufacturers like Honeywell, 2GIG and Qolsys. We suggest checking into the different panels so that you can find the perfect one for your business. For instance, you might want to choose a panel that allows for many user codes so every employee can arm and disarm. Or you might want a security panel with multiple partitions so that some sections of your business can remain armed, while others are disarmed.
After choosing a panel, you will then want to decide on some sensors to go with it. These are the devices that the panel will use to look out for conditions that could be dangerous. There are many different types of sensors that are used with security systems. For example, a door and window sensor will let the system know whenever a door or window has been opened. Many business use glass break detectors so that they can know immediately if a glass casing has been broken. This is great for businesses like jewelry stores and gun shops that tend to keep their products inside of protective glass casings. However, not every sensor has to be used for security purposes. Security systems can also interface with life-safety sensors, such as smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. These devices can certainly save lives in the event of an emergency. If your system is monitored by a central station, you can set your system up so that emergency personnel are immediately sent out if one of these sensors activates.
Once you have everything you need for your security setup, you will need to sign-up for a monitoring plan to put your system to use. We recommend choosing an alarm monitoring plan with cellular service and central station monitoring. Cellular communication is the most reliable communication path available for a security system. It will ensure that your business is protected even if the power is out or the internet is down. Central station monitoring will allow your business to always receive automatic emergency dispatch - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
