Once you have decided to purchase a security system, there are still some decisions you will need to consider regarding the level of protection you require. The following information has been prepared to assist you in understanding the key elements of a good security system.

Security alarm systems are available hard wired, wireless or a combination of both types depending on the construction type of your premises.

The security system control panel functions as a central computer. It receives messages from a number of sensors that act as the "eyes" and "ears" of the system. If the system is "armed" and a signal is received by the panel, it can be configured to automatically dial our Central Monitoring Station where extensively trained operators are on standby 24 hours a day, or if you prefer any number of pre-programmed phone numbers via a built-in telephone communicator.

We are a Bosch Security Certified Partner and offer an extensive range of quality Bosch security system products.

For exceptional ease of operation, flexibility and economy of installation, the control panel can incorporate an optional wireless receiver and key fob to remotely "arm" and "disarm" your system, send a panic signal or operate a garage door opener. The hand held key fob transmitter will provide the simplest of user interfaces between the control panel and the operator.

Code pads are located near common door entries to allow you to easily control the system.

The system also consists of a number of key elements, these include:

  • Magnetic Reed contacts to protect doors and windows
  • Glass break sensors to protect windows and glass doors
  • Motion sensors to detect movement within a defined area
  • Panic switches that can be remotely operated
  • Siren and strobe light to sound and visually alert an alarm condition in your home or business
  • Smoke and heat detectors to detect smoke and fire
  • Backup battery to keep your system operational in the event of AC power failure

All workmanship is professionally and efficiently carried out by our qualified and licensed technicians and complies with the relevant Australian Standards. All supplied equipment and associated materials are Austel approved.

Choosing the Right Alarm System for Your Home

Due to the drop in some other forms of crime, some people are getting lax about their security at home. This can be a terrible mistake. Easy access points like windows and doors require additional protection aside from locks to dissuade burglars from targeting your house. But what kind of security system is right for you?

Ensuring You Have the Right Hardware

Basic alarm systems feature seals on windows and doors that sound a very loud alarm when they are broken by forced entry. You can also implement motion detectors to these systems to catch people lurking around or inside your property. These systems rely on noise or lighting to scare off any burglars if you’re away or to call the police.

Alarm systems can also have features like smoke and heat detectors. Elaborate home security systems have a range of these features incorporated into the one solution, such as the system offered by Twenty First Security with the features listed above.

What Your Security System Should Do

Some people make the mistake of simply implementing a front door or back door alarm/monitoring system, which simply invites burglars to enter through a side window instead. Ensure your security system covers the whole of your house.

On the other hand, ensure it’s not set up in a way where it might go off when you or your family members are wandering around the place. You don’t want your motion sensors going off when you wander to the bathroom at the middle of the night. You can’t use these where pets will be moving about either. You can get sensors that are calibrated to detect larger sizes, allowing for pet movements, but it might be easier to explore other options.

Lastly, ensure you choose a security system that everyone in the household can handle using. Quality security systems offer the effectiveness of sophisticated technology while still having simple, intuitive user interfaces that kids, adults and those who struggle to grasp technology alike can all manage.

Choosing the Right Alarm System for Your Business

Business owners cannot afford to leave any of their valuables exposed to risks like theft or sabotage. This includes expensive equipment like computers as well as inventory and customer data. A reliable security system built for commercial use is essential as a first line of defence against theft and misconduct.

But what kind of security system do you need? There are a variety of alarm systems with different features and functions that are necessary depending on the size and type of business. Rather than purchasing a generic security system, it’s necessary for experts to conduct a survey of your property before they can recommend an appropriate solution.

Attributes of the property play a big role in determining what kind of security systems are necessary. A small jewellery store with large shop front windows will of course require a different set up to a technology company located in a city high rise office. Other considerations should include:

  • Location and lighting - Your security needs will differ if you’re on a busy, well-lit street in the middle of a city compared to a warehouse in a dark, quiet industrial area.
  • How many people access the building - A small office that customers don’t visit won’t have the same security needs as a large retail store with customers and staff going in and out all the time.
  • Work hours - Businesses that operate at night, such as restaurants, require different security measures than an office building that is only active during the day.

There are also a variety of other factors dependent on what your business does which may influence your level of security risk. Your risk level depends on things like the value of the goods located on your premises and how likely you’d be targeted. Depending on this risk level, solutions can range from an alarm and security lights system if low to biometric access control and 24/7 remote surveillance monitoring if high.

Extra levels of protection worth considering are a form of remote monitoring, which notifies the alarm company that installed the system, allowing them to react appropriately depending on what’s happening.

For example, the operator will call a patrol officer or police in the event of a break in (after calling you to verify it wasn’t a false alarm) or call the fire brigade if a smoke alarm is activated while no one is home. At Twenty First Security, we offer 24/7 surveillance monitoring, ensuring your property is always protected.

Changes in Alarm System Technology

Alarm systems back in the day relied on the phone system (landline) for remote monitoring and response. That had the major downside of being easy to sabotage. You might recall seeing that villains tend to cut the phone lines in movies before breaking in.

These days, alarm systems often have wireless components and can be linked to your mobile phone or through the internet to the remote monitoring station. Alarm systems have transformed from simple mechanisms that created sounds when a seal was broken or an unexpected movement was detected to complex systems that offer a variety of features, including:

  • Central control unit with backup battery, siren and accessible keypad (remember some systems send a silent alarm to the monitoring station, which contacts patrol officers or emergency services where necessary).
  • Panic buttons (mounted in ideal positions or hand-held).
  • Special detectors are also available for people with pets, to avoid false alarms.
  • Pressure mats inserted beneath carpet, rugs or floor panels to detect footsteps.
  • Temperature gauges for the detection of your furnace breaking and the pipes potentially freezing.
  • Water detectors for the detection of any basement leaks.

These features allow you to customise your security system based on your specific needs and how much you’re willing to invest. If you are worried about cost, keep in mind that some business insurance policies may provide discounts for installing an alarm system.

Our Alarm Installation and Maintenance Services

Some vendors will simply sell you security equipment directly to install yourself, which can seem attractive at first to avoid the cost of installation and maintenance costs. But it’s ultimately more cost-effective (and easier) to take advantage of professional alarm system installation and maintenance services as your system is guaranteed to work for longer and you can sometimes get the equipment at a less expensive rate than you would if you’d simply bought it outright.

The team at Twenty First Security provide expert security system installation and maintenance services as well as monitoring services and with over three decades of experience, you can be confident that your security system will be reliably managed regardless of what type of property you have and where it needs to be installed.

Whether you’re a large business or a small home, we’ll visit your property to assess your need and then provide an appropriate solution and install it. We can then regularly maintain it, conduct repairs where necessary and advise you on any upgrades or improvements that can be made to your system.
