The advent of wireless technology has provided unparalleled security solutions to multi-unit residential complexes (as well as single homes and commercial properties) that have faced the issue of not being able to monitor all aspects of one’s property at once. More and more professionals and civilians are utilizing wireless alarm systems to protect their property from both criminals and environmental factors. In this blog post, the access control and security experts here at Nonstop Locksmith and Security Solutions will go into detail regarding the ways that wireless security systems can bolster the security at your property.
Why utilize wireless security?
You never know what’s happening on your property when you’re not around. Tons of scary options are out there. Either you have a regular, old fashioned burglar, or something with a bit more flavor like an apartment squatter of thieves who try to salvage copper wiring from inside walls. Even something strange like copper theft can cost up to tens of thousands in damages; however with a wireless security system, you can keep all worry about these prospects far away from your mind. When your property is wirelessly monitored, any sort of strange activity will notify the police directly, as well as sound a loud siren to scare any criminal away. If you’re reselling any property, security systems are a great way to show realtors and visitors in and out of the building – a much more advanced method than a lock box.
Know Comings and Goings
Alarm systems can be programmed with custom PIN numbers for workers or family members; this way, you can know who comes and goes from your business or home at what time – this allows you to make sure that not only your business needs are met, but that your staff is working properly and that your family is safe!
Some wireless security systems allow you to monitor the environment within your home or business. If you’re concerned about overheating electronics or frozen pipes, use a temperature monitor or freeze sensor in order to verify the temperature at your property from a remote location, so you don’t have to take a trip just to check every time a worry pops up in your head. For those concerned about the expensive disaster of burst water pipes, water sensors are a great option, as they can notify you of the smallest amount of moisture, so you can stop and prevent leaks before they get worse.
Increase your property value
For those who own their home’s or businesses, it behooves you to be aware that the installation of wireless security systems helps to increase the monetary value of your home. If you’re ever planning on reselling to another consumer or commercial entity, having a wireless security system installed will greatly increase the value, hence, the selling price as well.
