What is a Security System?- Security Camera King
At Security Camera King we carry and sell security systems, but what is a security system if you’re not sure?
Security comes in layers, which work together to help make a location totally secure, how they all work together to help build a complete security picture varies based on the layer. Some of those layers are technological and some of these layers involve human labor and security employees. So to first answer the question of “what is a security system?” Well, any technologies working together for the purpose of providing security would be a security system Each technology is another layer in the total security profile of any location. While nothing in the universe is 100% foolproof to the point of absolute guarantee, there are tons of things you can do to ensure your security technologies are working for you. When we say, complete security, what we really mean is the idea that for any flaw, or gap one layer has in keeping you secure, another layer is in place to mitigate or eliminate that. In short, we mean many security technologies working together to form a singular cohesive security system.

When you own a home or business, there comes with that the responsibility to keep yourself, your family, or your employees, and everyone’s property are safe and secure. This is most easily accomplished using multiple security components in tandem, not just one or the other. All of these kinds of technologies working together, help create complete security for your location.
Alarm Systems and Personnel
While we carry the equipment needed to keep you secure, know that there are other aspects of security you’ll want to consider as well. Consider having an alarm system installed on-site and monitored by a reputable alarm monitoring company. These systems will notify you, or the authorities in the event of an unauthorized entry or break-in. They also can deter thieves or criminals from acting any further than the break-in attempt as the alarm siren is designed as a deterrent to scare off intruders.
Additionally, for business, you’ll likely want to have on-site security employees. these licensed and trained guards can react to situations on-site and assist with entry/exit operations for authorized personnel. Guards are often equipped with non-lethal methods of subduing violent criminals, and can even be trained and licensed to carry concealed weapons in some states/counties.
However, even with both the benefits of an alarm system and on-site Guard personnel, you still need other components to achieve complete security. Guards can not be in more than one place at a time and are expensive to hire and employ. Alarm systems can’t always be counted on to do their job, and, often notify you and the police too later to react in real-time to an incident.
These two options are considered the first layer of protection, but you’ll need a second and third layer to achieve complete security. The additional laters we are referring to are CCTV, and Access control systems. read on to learn more about these technologies that we carry, and how they can benefit your location, whether you have a business or residence.
CCTV is an acronym that stands for or closed-circuit television. CCTV is the combination of cameras, and recording devices such as DVRs or NVRS. These technologies work together at a location recording footage is a CCTV system. CCTV is important for several reasons. The first is the ability to have evidence to prove fault in accidents or criminal activity. The second is to monitor events live, so personnel like guards can react.
Access control encompasses devices installed on-site that control who can and cannot enter or exit through the various doorways, or gates at any given location. Using a combination of Maglocks, Door strikes, keypads, readers, and computer technology, the management of a facility can register employees and guests for access and control precisely who, when, how, and which access points can be used.
