The professionals assist, not only in installation, but in the most important phase, that of planning. They help a business or homeowner take into account the many factors that make for a safe and reliable system. They locate and eliminate problem areas by designing and installing appropriate systems.

What the building is made of can make a significant difference in the type of security system that needs to be installed. The physical characteristics like windows, doors and traffic flow areas are also important. The number and type of openings to the structure is a major part of the initial step of planning.

Consultants in security planning check the needs of a business for limiting or prohibiting entrance to individuals or groups of people. Employees working in a particular building must be able to enter and leave the building without undue problems. At the same time, intruders must be prevented from gaining access to the building or structure.

Some systems warn of fire, carbon monoxide, intruder or have a manually operated alert. Most system alarms are monitored through control centers. While preventing intruders is the most common reason for having a security system, other available monitoring needs by the system should be evaluated for potential applications.

Defining the actions that should be taken when a security breach alarm is activated is an important part of planning. The necessary steps to be taken can determine the type of system to be installed. If the concern for installing a system is fire, then the response by the monitoring center upon detection of the presence of fire might be to call the fire department. Generally, the home owner or approved contact person is then notified. In other situations, the home owner or other individual may be contacted first with the responsibility for further action by the fire or emergency personnel left to the discretion of the contact person. Fire detection is a major reason for installing a security alarm.

Identifying intruders is commonly done with the use of a keypad and security code. If the security system is activated, anyone entering the home must know the security code to prevent the alarm from sounding. Pre-planning and design of the system includes notification information. The alarm monitoring center follows notification procedures according to a defined priority, set up with the owner. When an security system is breached, a loud noise sounds to discourage the intruder from entering the premises. Sometimes, just a sign or window sticker notifying the intruder that the building has a security alarm will prevent an attempted break in.

Another type of security monitoring is available to the elderly or physically impaired. There is an alarm device that is worn by anyone who is in danger of falling. Other types of physical impairment can be monitored and help sent if needed. The client wears a device that can be pressed to bring help, either by law enforcement or medical personnel. Sometimes the alarm monitoring instructs the security center to contact friends or family members.

ADT Security Systems professionals are trained and experienced at helping businesses and individuals to plan the best type of security system. When security of employees, family or friends is at stake, having the right security system can provide peace of mind. Knowing that your structure and its occupants are secure is important for both family and business. The right system can also help prevent financial loss from fire or theft.
