A security system starts with a control panel. The control panel contains the "brains" of the security system, and essentially operates as a central computer. Various sensors connect to the control panel from locations throughout your business. If your security system is armed and the sensors detect a problem, they send signals to the control panel. The control panel automatically dials our central monitoring station, where the proper authorities are notified.
You operate your security system by entering your security code at the keypad. Generally located at entry doors, keypads can arm and disarm with push-button ease. For businesses we offer keypads with the added convenience of additional user codes to give employees or service people access to your business.
Magnetic contacts are two-part devices used to safeguard windows and doors. One part of the contact is a switch installed in the window or door jam; the other contains a magnet and is placed in the window or door itself. Any noticeable shift in contact with the switch results in an alarm.
A passive infrared motion detector (PIR) is an electronic security device that detects intruders by "sensing" motion or body heat in the area being protected. Most PIRs are designed to be used when you and your employees are away from your facility or when no one will be passing through the area "covered" by the PIR.
Glassbreak sensors, usually mounted on ceilings or walls, work by "listening" for the sound of breaking glass in a window. "Shock" glassbreak detectors are mounted on the window and "feel" the shock of breaking glass. This kind of advanced wireless technology can provide shatter and shock protection for your windows, for often intruders are "sensed" and an alarm sounded while they are still outdoors. This is often enough to send a burglar running!
It is important to know that a monitored smoke detector is not considered to be a commercial fire system. For more information on our fire systems please contact us at 770-216-1997 You can also read more about commercial fire systems here: NSS Fire and Life Safety Systems
