There are many aspects to having a security system that manages to cover every part of the safety and security needs of your location. ITs because of all of these parts, and how much knowledge is required to install them, that you should always hire a professional Security System Contractor when it comes time to put together and install a security system on site. But, what are the major components of a well-functioning security system, and why isn’t this a job I could do alone? Read on to learn more about the different parts of your security system, and why you’d need to hire professionals for their setup.

There are three major components of a good security system. These components are CCTV, Access Control, and alarm System Monitoring. Each one serves its own purpose and is important to achieving a completely secure solution on site. The first of these, CCTV is short for Closed Circut TeleVision. CCTV is the combination of on-site cameras and recorders working together to capture footage to be used as evidence, or so authorized personnel can view live footage in real-time.

The second component is Access Control. Access Control is the usage of various partially automated locks, and gates to ‘control’ the ‘access’ to the location.  This equipment can include, gate arms, sliding gates, and doors fitted with magnetic locks and strikes. These are used in combination with keyfob and card readers, keypads, entry/exit buttons, and live personnel to allow or disallow entry to the facility.

The last component you should hire a Security System Contractor to install is a monitored alarm system. These systems use contacts, and motion sensors to determine if Doors and windows are opened when they shouldn’t be, or if there is movement in certain areas that there shouldn’t be. The system then plays ana alarm to deter intruders and will attempt to contact you, and/or the authorities after certain conditions are met.

All of these components require knowledge and training in the following fields to install:

  • Electrical
  • Networking
  • Construction
  • General IT
  • Cable Termination, Running, and Management

These installations are not recommended as a Sunday novice DIY project and you should always hire a Security System Contractor.
