DESIGNING A COMPREHENSIVE SECURITY SYSTEMWhich security system is right for your home or business? There are a lot of elements that go into designing an optimal home automation and alarm security system. Thankfully, our experienced and highly-trained security professionals can explain your options based on your needs. Here are a few to consider as you determine what those security needs really are.
COMMUNICATIONCommunication of your alarm panel is one of the most important elements to consider when designing a reliable security system. By design a burglar alarm panel support POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) line communication, but not everyone has those now. Not to mention that an analog system can be accessed from the outside and can be disabled easily. Though many people in Houston, and around the globe, have abandoned “landlines” for digital lines, these are not as reliable for an alarm panel either. So, what is the best option? At Megasystems Security, we offer cellular communicators to support various alarm panels. This is a much more reliable option and ensures that communication is uninterrupted to the monitoring station within your alarm and home automation system.
PERIMETER 3 LAYERS STRATEGYAt Megasystems, we know that the main job of any security system will always be to protect and monitor the perimeter! Door and Window contacts are your first line of defense, and are a must-have, if you want to keep your home or business secure. The second layer of a good alarm system are the glass break sensors, which trigger upon the sound of breaking glass. Our technicians ensure sensors should are distributed according to the distance limitations that recommended by the manufacturer. The third layer of a top-notch Houston home automation system will be the motions sensors. Placement of sensors is determined by a skilled technician to get the most coverage; always locating them in areas that will trigger false alarms.
FIREAlarm smoke and heat sensors are lifesaving devices, which are distributed throughout your home or business according to the fire code. Megasystems Security holds a Texas Fire Alarm Company License and provides our customer with the ultimate alarm system designed to for complete coverage of your home or office
EMERGENCY DISPATCHAt Megasystems we always offer our clients the latest emergency panic buttons, which are installed in a key area of the house. All our alarm panels include a panic button that is built into the keypad or touch panel. This is an extra layer of protection that provides piece of mind should an emergency arise.
ALARM PERMITMost cities and jurisdictions require an alarm permit. Obtaining an Alarm Permit is the responsibility of the owner but if you have any questions about the process, we are happy to answer those. You should check with your local city or county government office or local on how to get a permit for an alarm system in Houston. This is a very important step as some municipalities require you to have that in place before they will dispatch the local police. CALL US TODAY FOR A COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEM DESIGN (713) 668-8818
