If your idea of home or office security is shaped by the early systems that had to be wired and were guilty of frequent false alarms, you are due for a serious update. The last two decades of technological advances mean that the systems available today are almost Buck Rogers in their capabilities and futuristic efficiency. Companies can now install full security for offices and homes with wireless components that provide incredible performance and reliability. All the elements needed for securing entrances and vulnerable areas are small, rugged and relatively inexpensive. By controlling all these units wirelessly, a much broader and reliable security network is achievable. In addition, the flexibility and usefulness of the installed system is much more effective. For example, rather than fixed black and white cameras, most systems utilize full color HD technology. Monitoring is also much more efficient, with users able to access their homes or offices with smartphones or tablets. This capability adds an interactivity that provides functions only dreamed of in early systems. Aside from the standard fire, carbon monoxide, and intruder detection functions, overall monitoring capabilities are a major attraction for homeowners and business owners.
With the advances in technology, other security issues are both created and made easier to deal with. The threat of unwanted surveillance by listening devices and cameras has never been more real. At the same time, such items as the spy camera detector helps effectively counter this threat of invasion. As product continue to benefit for advances, it will be interesting to see the state of the market a decade from now.
