<h2>What are Electronic or Electrical Security Systems?</h2>
Electrical Security Systems are one of the benefits of the 21st century. They use modern technology in electronics, remotes, sensors, lights, timers, switches and computers to control access. Therefore you are no longer bound to the old methods such as mechanical locks, full time guards, dogs or razor wire. Of course these methods are still valuable for various purposes. However they have many disadvantages. Examples are expense, labour, lack of tracking or auditing, keys, etc. Perhaps you want something simpler and less prone to difficulties? Then what about electrical security systems?
Professional Electrical love installing security systems for homes and businesses. It is one of our specialties. We bring you the latest technology and can design a quality system that meets your needs.
<h3>What are the benefits of electrical security systems?</h3>
Electric or electronic security systems cover door entry systems and security lighting. Below are some of the benefits of going electrical:
- You have 24/7 control
- Only authorized people can enter
- Biometric identification if required (fingerprints,
- You can track who enters and when
- You’re able to set who can enter at what times: ‘time zone capability’
- Your settings can be remembered by the devices
- Remote control
- Staff can manage the system from a computer
- No hardwiring necessary
- You’ve got the convenience of not needing to replace and keep track of keys or employ guards
- You can replace lost access cards without re-keying
- You’ll find it easy to move locks and doors
- Cost effective
<h3>What do you need to consider for an electrical security system?</h3>
Have a look at the questions below. We are here to help you understand and choose a system that’s right for you.
- What size of system do you need?
- How many and which doors need to be fitted with devices?
- Will each one have a standalone system or will there be a connected network?
- How will all the components of the system be controlled and coordinated?
- Will you require tracking and auditing of who enters and when?
- Do you want to patch the security system in to closed circuit television, fire and other alarm systems?
- Are backups necessary for your system in case of power failure?
- Do you need security lighting too?
- How will you identify authorized people?
- What kind of locks do you want on the doors? Would you prefer one or several of the below:
- biometric sensors (fingerprint or photo ID)
- proximity cards
- swipe cards
- electronic keys
You can also have combinations of these for added security.
- How many authorized users will there be?
- How and where will authorized people get in?
- Can they exit freely or do they need ID again to get out?
- And what about emergency exits?
- Will employees or visitors be irritated having to constantly be identified?
<h3>What kinds of electrical security systems are there?</h3>
contained and the identification for authorized users applies to that door. If you have more than one door, you can install a standalone lock on each door. However if you have a bigger organization, then you might find a network more suitable.
There are a huge number of electronic locking devices which can be used standalone or in a network. Perhaps you have a problem deciding which way to go?

<h4>Standalone digital lock</h4>
This is an all-in-one system for each door. Therefore they can be installed quickly. They are powered by replaceable batteries. Also you have a choice of different unlocking methods such as fingerprint or photo, keypad, cards, etc. Multiple users can be accommodated. However you may find this type of system unsuitable if you want a distributed network for multiple entry points.
<h4>Combination Transponder keys (for pin tumbler locks)</h4>
These are like modern car keys that operate remotely. One key can be used on any non-critical doors coded to their transponder.
<h4>Networked access control system</h4>
Networks are ideal for large businesses including ones that may have multiple locations. You can manage your security from one point with a networked system.
Your control of the settings for each door, swipe card, key card, biometric sensor, keypad, electronic key, etc is done over the network. Therefore you can also keep an audit of the comings and goings of users.
Lighting at night plays an important role In addition to physical barriers and door entry security systems. It can deter intruders. However studies have shown that intruders can also benefit from security lighting! Not only does it help them see what they are doing. Also potential witnesses may not detect that something’s wrong, due to the general bright light. In addition, witnesses may find it hard to see what’s going on because of glare from security lights.
Below are some guidelines to address these problems and optimize security lighting. You can discuss these with us while considering your whole security system.
- Careful design, shielding and placement of lighting to reduce glare
- Use multiple, moderately powered lamps instead of one big one. This will reduce glare. And it will also provide more even lighting and backup should one fail.
- Coordinate the placement of lights with the cameras of closed circuit television.
- Protect lights and their power lines and supply from tampering and vandalism
- Use infrared sensors that trip lights to come on so that intruders know they are detected. In addition, witnesses are alerted immediately. The sensors can also activate an alarm sound.
