What is Electronic Security?


Access Control

Who needs a key? Use an access control system and swipe your card to open the door. Keypads make it even easier. Either way no more keys!

Automation

Control your lights, thermostat, power outlets, garage doors, and more. Put them on a schedule or activate from your mobile device.

Burglar Alarm

Intruder Alert! You need to know if someone is breaking into your home or business. Intrusion detection is your first line of defense.

Fire Alarm

Life Safety is serious business. Smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, horns & strobes. Fire alarm systems save lives.

Intercom

Think of intercom as a permanently installed "walkie-talkie" system. It lets you talk to someone from behind a locked door. They can include video too.

Monitoring Service

You can't be available 24/7. Monitoring service providers take the call for you and dispatch the police, fire truck, or ambulance.

Remote Services

Everything is connected now. Check your security system with an app on your phone or web browser. Instant and real-time control.

Video Surveillance

Put cameras inside and outside. Get your system online with remote services and see what's going on while you're away.
