Is it time to upgrade your security system?
Residential Security | Commercial Security
If you’ve ever gone a few years between getting a phone and upgrading to a new one, you know just how fast technology can advance and leave older tech solutions outdated and obsolete. When it comes to security systems for your home or business, outdated technology can present your building as an easy target, rather than repelling would-be intruders.
What to look for:
There are a few things you should look for when deciding whether your security system is obsolete in the year 2023.
- Transition your system from hardwired devices to wireless. In the past, wires were the way that we connected security devices to a central security system. This was because it was the only way to do it, not because it was the best way. These wires can easily be cut or disabled, leaving your security system offline and in the dark as to what is going on. Switching to wireless cameras and sensors is a necessity for modern-age security systems.
- Do you have 24/7 accessibility? If your outdated alarm system DOES detect a problem at your home or business, typically you will receive a call from your security company to see if authorities need to be sent. If you aren’t able to monitor your property remotely, you may not know whether or not authorities are needed. With up to date security systems, you should be able to view live feed from your cameras through your smartphone and be able to control features like door locks, access control as well as live feed. With a security system like Brivo, Ideal Partners will ensure that you have access to all these features, giving you a robust and effective security response to any threat.
- Are your cameras even useful? How many times have you seen a picture of a suspect on the news from a grainy security camera? You can never tell anything from these videos and pictures, so what are they really helping with? If your cameras are grainy or lack night vision, they are failing your security system and should be replaced. Ideal Partners works with industry leaders like Eagle Eye Networks to supply clients with premium camera hardware with features like night vision, high resolutions, remote monitoring and AI support to detect interference like tampering.
