How often does the alarm backup battery need replacing?

Points to consider when planning a business CCTV camera system

Planning the design of your businesses CCTV camera system is almost as crucial as the images it may capture. There's no one-size-fits-all solution for the security surveillance of your business.

Is alarm monitoring worth it?

We get asked this question a lot when we're installing new security systems. Is alarm monitoring worth it? I'm getting a great system why do I need pay for monitoring as well? Can't my neighbour just come round and check the house if we're not home when the alarm goes off? These are all very logical questions to ask when you're considering if adding an alarm monitoring service to your home security system is really necessary. 

What happens if the security alarm goes off when you're out?

Home security alarms are loud and annoying, but that's the idea. The alarm in your home security system is designed to be a deterrent to intruders, alert occupants, and to draw attention to your home, from neighbours, passers-by, or authorities. Most systems will sound for about 5 to 10 minutes before stopping and automatically re-arming. If a sensor is triggered again the alarm siren will sound for another period, and so on.
