Not long ago having a security system required drilling through walls and involved many spools of wire to a bulky keypad. Today’s systems are sleek with touch-pads offering enhanced features to help manage busy lifestyles. “New technology found in alarm systems can perform more than just alerts of a security breach or fire. Systems come with basic to advanced features to monitor the dwellings environment, including temperature changes indicating the heat is off or a flood, control lighting and much more. The alarm system has been through many design changes becoming the central area where a resident can monitor the indoor environment of the home with the ability of adding cameras to look in on loved ones and pets,” explains Ken Mara, President and CEO of World Wide Security/GC Alarm, Garden City, N.Y.
World Wide Security/GC Alarm has seen an increase for requests not only from area homeowners, but also apartment/coop residents who are just as concerned about who is coming and going in their building. The system can perform many functions in most apartments or multi-dwelling units to manage the lives of occupants including a message center for recording messages.
Wireless security systems are popular for a very good reason, seamless installation in most instances and if you move, take it with you. They now come in small, sleek designs to compliment a home’s décor. Added bonus, look in on your residence from most phones, tablets and computers. A wireless security system has brought security to everyone who wants it. Systems require very little wiring, some none at all, and are removable allowing residents to bring the system to their next condo or coop. During an alarm event, signals can be sent through telephone lines or through wireless radio. Radio is an additional method to communicate to the central station. Wireless radio back up is very important as landlines continue to disappear.
Many systems are available to choose from. There are out-of-the-box systems sold by electronic and big-box stores, and while these systems can provide a sense of security, be warned they are limited in functions and quality. Depending on the budget of residents in a condo or coop, a custom designed system will provide many more years of service and most companies offer maintenance plans to keep the system operating at peak performance.
