Intercom System Installation NYC

An intercom system can be used at an industrial park, in the office, at hospitals or at home to facilitate communication independent of the telephone system. An intercom is generally a closed circuit and facilitates communication in a limited area. However, it can be linked with other security systems such as door sensors, access control, and CCTV system. The choice of the intercom system to use depends on the areas that you want to facilitate communication, the kind of integrations you want as well as the cost you are willing to take for the installation of the system. Different brands will vary in cost. 

Today at TR Alarm Systems Inc we want to discuss the ins and outs of our intercoms and intercom system installation in NYC.  

Intercom System Installation NYC 
The base station
This is the main control point for the whole system. Every other part of the intercom system are connected to the base station. In intercom systems that are divided into zones, the base station has the ability to broadcast messages to all the zones or some of the zones. 

Intercom Substation
The substations are also referred to as the speakers. They broadcast one-way communication from the base station. Therefore, they have neither the microphones nor the buttons for use by the people on this end. Substations are used in malls, train stations, schools, and airport to give direction or instructions in the daily operations. At home, a substation may be placed in the parent room if they are monitoring the baby who is in a different room. Therefore, the parent can hear the baby, but the baby does not hear the parents from the other end. 

These parts of the intercom connect to the base or master station. They include the headsets; wall mounted system and handsets. They have a push a talk button that enables communication to the base station.  

It is important to have an intercom system installed by qualified installers such as us at TR Alarm Systems Inc for efficient functionality. Much of the installation work involves setting up the stations and substations and wiring them to the base station. Our installers will identify the location for the mounting of these parts, installs them and then connects them to the base station.  

Moreover, depending on the system, they may have to configure such settings as zoning, integration to the other systems and set the access levels for the users. Most systems have an allowance for installation of additional stations when there is a need. Our installers also provide periodic maintenance of the system.

Commercial Security Systems in NYC

A security system has become a necessity for homes, offices, workplaces and business headquarters these days since the risk of potential intruders breaking is ever rising. Under such situations, it is important that our security system can be relied upon. It should immune our offices well in the cause of a possible theft or intrusion. You shall feel more secure and satisfied if you have an idea of how a commercial security system works and you know exactly what to do or who to call in case something goes wrong. Today we at TR Alarm Systems Inc wish to break down the basics of commercial security systems in NYC

Commercial Security Systems in NYC 
The basic composition of a security system
A general security system comprises of the following components:
  • A controller or control panel that is programmed to manage the entire system
  • Sensors put on windows and doors
  • Motion sensors put both inside and outside 
  • Security cameras, both wired and wireless
  • A loud and effective alarm system 

The working process
The control panel as the name suggests is the main controller of the entire system. It is a computer that communicates with all of its components and performs the necessary action needed. It monitors the entire house or building and orders each component how and when to perform a particular task, to arm or disarm etc. If the control panel fails or is not efficient enough, there is no use of the cameras, sensors, and alarms working properly. 

Sensors are basically used to sense movement. The sensors put on the doors and windows will catch if they were tried to be opened from outside when the security system was on. If a window or door is suddenly or forcefully opened by the intruder, the circuit will break and trigger the siren or alarm, alarming every one of the situation. 

Motion sensors are the advanced version of the above sensors. They are used in places that contain the most valuable and expensive things. They keep the place secure by creating an invisible zone that looks out for any suspecting human movement during odd hours or whenever an unauthorized person enters the premises. It will trigger an alarm and notify us.

Cameras are necessary for a security system. They are used to record and monitor everything that is going on that a human cannot possibly do. Cameras send out live information to the control rooms and record data for authorities to watch later in case of a break-in or burglary. They also note distant areas from the property that are hard to see in case the burglar ran or covered his face. The entries and exits too are supposed to be monitored by the surveillance cameras. The cameras can be controlled, switched on and off and moved from anywhere with the help of computers and smartphones. So, you can easily have an access to your workplace when you are out and look for anything fishy.

Alarms are used to notify you and the monitoring company of a possible burglary or intrusion. They should be loud and effective in case you are sleeping. And if you are not home they should be loud enough for your neighbors to hear and come running for help. In most of the cases, a loud alarm is enough to scare the intruder away as most of them are amateurs and do not know their way around. 

Lastly, you should put on stickers and yard signs from us at TR Alarm Systems Inc. You might think that it is of no importance but by doing so, you are sending out a message that your property is protected and secure and can land anyone who tries to intrude in deep trouble.

Safety equipment like fire extinguishers, fire blankets and fire safety boxes in the working premises is not enough. Alarms are indispensable in order to make the workplace optimally safe. Aside from bankruptcy, a fire accident is the most devastating accident that can adversely affect any business. To replace every important thing destroyed in a fire accident is very disrupting as it takes a lot of effort and time to do so.

Breathing in the smoke from fire is a more of a killer than the fire itself, it is because the smoke spreads through the air and stops you taking in oxygen, this event often happens before the fire can reach you. Smoke and fire are silent killers and without warning you could be at risk... Fire alarms were created to pre-warn you that a fire may be present. They work by detecting changes in the air; they are equipped with sensors that are capable of detecting excess smoke in the air. If this is detected the alarm will trigger and a loud penetrating noise will emit from the alarm, this is to warn you that a fire may be present somewhere in the building. 

When installing these, they should be placed in the appropriate places; engineers will often come for these into your building, especially in commercial and industrial properties. When installed they must be tested to make sure they work. Installation of these is very important and if done incorrectly could result in serious consequences.

CCTV System Installation in NJ

Security is very vital for any business. There is no way you can be profitable without protecting your assets. Electronic video security systems are one way you can keep tabs with what is happening in and around your premises. Today we at TR Alarm Systems Inc would like to discuss CCTV system installation in NJ

The systems have become intelligent over time enabling you to detect any motion, follow a person or an object, send notifications on your mobile phone, contact law enforcement agencies, detect abandoned objects, detect loitering, scan for increased heat levels and much more. They are also systems that can be customized to meet your specific needs. 

However, with all these options and capabilities, it may be hard to pinpoint the exact features that you need for your business. Here are some guidelines for you. 

CCTV System Installation in NJ
The resolution of the camera 
This is a vital aspect of video surveillance. You need a camera that can give you images or video where you can identify individuals or objects in it. Do not go for a camera with a resolution below 720p. If you need cameras to detect vehicle registration numbers and other small things, you need the one with a higher resolution. 

Frame rate 
The frame rate is the transition from one image to the other in a video. The higher the frame rate, the smoother the video. All a video is, is a series of still images that are taken in close succession. We recommend cameras that have a frame rate of not less than 30 frames per second. 

Camera models 
There are several camera models in the market today. The common ones are dome cameras, bullet cameras, pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras and heat cameras. Each has its best area of application. For example, bullet cameras are ideal for surveillance on a hallway, while PTZ cameras are ideal for a large park where you can pan the video to identify something. 

Indoor and outdoor camera 
There is a difference between indoor and outdoor cameras. Outdoor cameras are weather proof, and cannot be easily damaged by thugs or malicious people (IP7 rated). Indoor cameras are cheaper but more vulnerable if used outside. 

You can store videos on  DVR that is located on the premises. However, you can also decide to store images in the cloud or on a remote NVR systems out of the premises. When you decide to install CCTV with us, our experts will help calculate the adequate storage space for the number of cameras that you have. Another thing that you have to look at is the compression rates of the DVR or NVR systems. Compression eliminates unnecessary data to save you space. The common compression technologies are H.264 and MJPEG.

When it comes to installation, you've decided to take this final step because you care about your property safe. As a security company, we at TR Alarm Systems Inc care about our clients. We want them to feel as safe and protected as possible. To ensure this we look out for blind spots, and make a point to understand all the nooks and crannies of the premises to provide maximum security. 

To learn more about us, or for more information on our CCTV system installation in NJ, please call us today at 1-800-486-5019. One of our security experts will be ready to speak to you.

Commercial Security Systems in NYC

How to Choose the Right Commercial Security System

Securing your commercial premises from threats is a priority to safeguard your investment. Be it an office, a warehouse or a parking lot, it is important to have a robust security system that will enable faster response to threats and provide deterrence. A commercial security system is more complex than a home security system in that it must screen entrants, provide surveillance, and alerts over a larger area.  Today at TR Alarm Systems Inc, we want to provide some insight that will serve as a guide for selecting the right commercial security systems in NYC.

Commercial Security Systems in NYC
Security needs
Different commercial premises have different security needs. A hospital’s security needs are different from those of a jewelry store. Some factors that influence your security needs are;

• Incidences of crime- What are the crime statistics in the neighborhood? Are you in a high crime neighborhood or low crime area?
• Types of crimes- what crimes are commonly committed in the neighborhood? Are threats from burglars greater than threats on employees, or assets?
• Personal safety- How likely are your employees and customers likely to be attacked for cash and other valuables?

These 3 factors will provide assessment points for the needs which the security system will address.

Installation needs
Different premises present different challenges in the installation of a security system. It is important that you assess some aspects of your premises.

•    Entrances – How many points in the premises can be used as entrances? These include windows, doors, air vents, access hatches and plumbing lines. All these points need to be secured. Determine how best to secure each entry point. What is most appropriate? Is it a lock, surveillance camera, shatterproof glass etc.?
•    Interior needs – How do you secure the interior of your premises? How do you prevent unauthorized access to certain areas? You will need to determine how to secure rooms with valuables and cash. What is most appropriate, badge access, fingerprint reader, or pin lock?
•    Lighting – lights are an integral part of the security system. You have to assess the premises to determine the points that need lighting and where to place the lights. You will also have to assess which security mechanisms blend well with the lights.

Monitoring and control
You should be able to monitor what is happening on the premises round the clock. This means installing a system that can provide alerts in real-time when you are far away from the premises, if there is no guard on site. Consider the benefits of having a mobile based security system that can show real-time images of the premises. You can also opt for a system that can be controlled from your mobile phone for quicker response.
