Electronic Security Technologies
Electronic security refers to the use of electronic systems to safeguard physical spaces, assets, and individuals. It includes technologies like
- Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) for real-time surveillance,
- access control systems for managing entry, and
- intrusion detection systems like alarms for alerting unauthorised access.
A security alarm system operates through a network of sensors connected to a control panel. These sensors can include door/window sensors, motion detectors or glass break detectors. They are designed to detect specific activities or changes in the environment, such as forced entry.
When a sensor is triggered, it sends a signal to the control panel. If the control panel determines a potential security threat, it activates the alarm, which can involve sounding a loud siren or flashing lights to alert those nearby and potentially deter intruders.
This provides real-time monitoring and recording of activities within a specified area. It involves using Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras that capture and transmit video footage to a monitor or recording device.
The footage captured by these cameras can be viewed live, allowing for immediate response to any security incidents. It can also be recorded and stored for future reference, which can be invaluable for investigations following a security breach.
This system is a technology used to monitor and track the location or movement of objects or individuals. This can be done through various methods, including GPS tracking, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth technologies.
Why is electronic security important?
The importance of electronic security systems is underscored by the fact that most burglarised homes do not have a security alarm, according to police reports.
Having things like alarms and security cameras can stop burglars from trying to break into your home. And even if someone successfully breaks in, these systems can alert you or the police right away. This can help stop the burglar or limit the damage they can do. Security cameras can also provide helpful evidence. This can help the police find the burglar and be used in court.
Furthermore, having a good security system can help with home insurance. Many insurance companies will charge you less if you have a security system because it lowers the chance of your home being broken into. Also, there’s a chance your insurance provider will deny your claim if it finds out your property is not aptly secure by the time of the break-in.
