As the darker nights approach people start to think more about the security of their home and business premises.

There are a number of ways to secure and monitor your home and business premises. The two main options are CCTV and an intruder alarm.

CCTV

CCTV is a fantastic way of being able to monitor your property when your there and also when your away. Your CCTV needs to be positioned in the correct place and also have the ability to monitor and record at 1080p. At 1080p or full HD you have more chance of getting a clear image of anyone who is causing a problem. You also need to ensure your cameras have built in infrared to allow your CCTV to get a good clear image during the night.

Intruder Alarms

Intruder alarms both act as a deterrent to any potential intruder and are also a great way to alert you if there is a problem. A well installed intruder alarm will use a mixture of sensors to cover every possible access point to the property. To ensure every access point is covered a survey should be carried out to ensure your intruder alarm is going to as effective as possible. Existing intruder alarms normally have a battery located in both the main alarm control panel and also in most cases in the external bell box. Wireless alarm systems will also have batteries in the individual sensors. All these batteries should be checked by a professional at least once a year to ensure they are in a good condition and that they are holding their charge. Some insurance companies actually require this inspection once a year.
