INTRUSION DETECTION SYSTEMSBurglar (or intrusion), alarms are systems designed to detect unauthorized entry into a building or area. They consist of an array of sensors, a control panel and alerting system, and interconnections. Sensors detect intruders by many methods such as monitoring door and window contacts, by passive infrared motion detectors, ultrasound, vibration, electric or magnetic fields, or microwaves. Sensors may be directly wired to a control panel that provides sensor power, or may communicate wirelessly.Some alarm systems serve a single purpose of burglar or fire protection. Combination systems provide both fire and intrusion protection. Intrusion alarm systems may also be combined with closed-circuit television surveillance systems to automatically record the activities of intruders, and may interface to access control systems for electrically locked doors. Systems range from small, self-contained noisemakers, to complicated, multi-zoned systems with color-coded computer monitor outputs.Burglar alarms (or perimeter security systems, perimeter detection systems, Perimeter protection, intrusion detection systems and other terms for the same thing) are used in residential, industrial, and commercial properties for protection against theft or property damage.

Burglar Alarms for Offices in Denver, CO
Thanks to technological advances, a security system can do more than just keep burglars away.In fact, some security systems can control the temperature of your business, monitor your employee’s whereabouts, and even let employees in when you are away from your business. To make this happen, "applications are enabled using simple Z-Wave automation devices like motion detectors, door and window sensors, and lighting and door lock controls," according to Mark Walters, chairman of Z-Wave, a company that unifies different electronics into an integrated wireless network.Other benefits:Benefit #1: Reduce Your Energy BillSounds a little crazy, but yes, a security system can indeed help save energy and reduce your electricity bill.For example, by using sensors installed throughout your business, your security system can reduce electricity usage by monitoring for circumstances when lighting should be reduced or controlling when lights are turned off. "Similarly, you don't have to worry if you forgot to turn off the air conditioning or heater," says Scott Harkins, president and general manager of Honeywell Security Products Americas. Instead, you can use your business security system to control the heating and cooling system right from your smartphone - potentially saving hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs, adds Harkins.In fact, some alarm systems will even account for extreme temperatures, according to Jay Kenny, security technology expert and vice president of marketing at Alarm.com."With this feature, the system will automatically adjust thermostats when extremely hot or cold weather is forecasted in order to reduce energy costs," says Kenny.Benefit #2: Save Money on InsuranceThe safer you and your business are, the cheaper your insurance will be.In fact, the Insurance Information Institute's (III) website notes that you can often receive discounts of at least 5 percent if your business is equipped with a smoke detector or burglar alarm. However, a company could lower your premium by 15 or 20 percent if you install a sophisticated system that combines the two and rings at the police, fire, or other monitoring stations, III adds.Benefit #3: Monitor Employee's Whereabouts and ActionsSystems can be used to monitor when employees arrive and when they leave. Establishing a monitoring system encourages honesty and offers additional protection and safety to your employees.Benefit #4: Prevent Water DamageA broken water heater or leaking faucet left unnoticed can create devastating damage to a business ruining equipment and inventory. And can create a situation where the business cannot continue to function until the damage is repared--costing more money. And while you may not expect it, a security system has the ability to prevent this type of water damage. In fact, you can add a flood sensor notification alarm to your security system to notify you if there's a leak or unexpected water flow.Benefit #5: Lock/Unlock Doors via Smartphone or TabletYou're half way home and then it hits you: You're not sure if you locked the front door. If you know this absent-minded feeling well, then you're in luck. There are many alarm systems that allow you to lock and unlock your door remotely, using a Smartphone or tablet.Benefit #6: Reduce Inventory Shrinkage. With the right security system you will be able to monitor access to valuable inventory and keep logs related to that access. Inventory loss often occurs when there is not adequite security controls to keep employess honest.This list could continue on--there are many good reasons to consider a security system including intrusion detection for your Denver area company.
