Business Security Quick Easy Guild

Business security is changing. New technology’s altering what’s expected from small and large business systems. Local and national companies are offering security for businesses with options which were price prohibitive only a few years ago. Retail stores, office’s, restaurant’s and other commercial locals are able to buy GSM cellular monitored alarm systems, with remote access via smart phone, iPad, laptop, or computer. These robust systems are offering features not found in landline systems. GSM cellular monitoring is now available nationwide. Anywhere there is cellular service.

Not long ago a company paid a premium to be called and informed if their alarm systems were operated after hours, on weekends, holidays, whenever the location’s closed and employees/customers are not expected to be present. Today via remote access applications such as alarm.com an owner or manager can observe in real time multiple localtions anywhere in the world through thier smarphone laptops, desktops, iPads or anymost any mobile device at most times no extra charge.

Business security needs vary. Employee theft, physical security, security cameras, building security, business assets, data security, all should be taken into consideration when determining appropriate security measures. Today security options are many. Most security companies offer security solutions service in every region, of every state, across the country.

Todays Security Systems are less expensive and offer more features. Affordable security systems have abilities, which would have been science fiction, five years ago.  And the biggest change in the Security Industry, in the past 30 years, is happening now!

Honeywell just came out with a new improved 4G GSM (Global Systems for Mobile Communications) . GE security is coming out with some new equipment sometime in 2013. Ge security’s Simon XT and Concord are great products are offered GSM cellular abilities.The Simon XT and Concord offer smash and grab protection with GSM cellular monitoring.

business security What is GSM cellular technology? Basically the alarm system has its own cell phone. A component looks like a circuit board with a cell phone antenna. is place in the control panel   Major benefits,remote access, live video feed, text alerts. You can add the GSM component to most existing alarm systems. You will need a technician to do this. Usually it will take an hour or two but there are times it can take longer. If you have an existing system it can be upgraded. GSM cellular alarm systems are great business security products for many reasons. GSM cellular systems are also great for home security systems.

GSM cellular systems are more secure, robust systems, not dependent on local landline or phone networks

Recently burglars are cutting phone lines throughout the country on commercial security systems as well as residential. It is unlikely it will happen to you. But it is happening. If you have a traditional security system and the landline is cut. Your system can not communicate with the outside world. In Sandy’s aftermath parts of New Jersey, New York, Long Island had no land-line phone service for weeks. Sandy left thousands of businesses vulnerable, without firewalls. Their security barriers down. All because their telephone lines were damaged. And no signal could be sent to the monitoring stations.

If your Business Security System uses GSM cellular technology. Your independent business will be protected in case a burglar cuts a telephone line. Or if the telephone network is down due to unforeseen natural occurrences, weather, natural disasters, etc. There is a chance the cell network could go down but its much less likely than the landline. Cell service will be up faster. Sandy disrupted the Cell service in New York City for a day or two. It made front page news. Land lines are still out in Long Island New York weeks later.

GSM cellular Security systems has the ability to access your security system remotely. Through a smart phone, laptop, or computer virtually anywhere in the world.

Both GE Security and Honeywell offer apps which enables the user to access the security system remotely. Using a smart phone, Laptop, or Computer a business owner can turn on or off the system.  This is a huge step forward in business security. Most security companies use GE Security, or Honeywell equipment. Equipment includes doors sensors, keypads, motion detectors, smoke detectors, Keyfobs, and security cameras. Apps allow the user to access the security alarm systems remotely. GE SEcurity uses Alarm.com, Honeywell, Total Connect.

“Total Connect” for Honeywell is great for business security. It allows you to manage multiple locations through one interface. The user can be sent text alerts if the system is armed or disarmed during specific hours. Inside the Total Connect app there is a calendar. It can be set for specific days of the weeks and hours. The user can receive a text message if the system is armed, disarmed, the motion detection cameras sense movement or the alarm is triggered. Both Alarm.com and “Total Connect” allow streaming video if you have a security cameras incorporated into the system. Expect to pay extra for any security camera systems.  Most monthly monitoring rates increases if you have a security camera system. Alarm.com and “Total Connect” will not be able to replace a 4 to 8 security camera DVR system. If you need all day recording these systems will not be able to accomplish the task. But for live viewing, motion alerts, and short video records, they are perfect.

Security Companies which offer GSM cellular Systems with Alarm.com or “Total Connect”

Most security company offers GE Security  or Honeywell Security Products. FrontPoint security offers GE Security’s Simon XT all with GSM cellular. Some areas will not receive cell coverage. All GSM cellular security systems use ATT Mobile. You might get great Verizon coverage, but not ATT Mobile. If you are in a rural area you might not receive a strong signal. I have a secret which works.

This website Cell Phone Tower is awesome! They have taken towers registered with the FCC. It’s connected to Google Maps to see towers within your area. If you have poor ATT Mobile coverage in your area. Find the nearest cell tower and contact the owner. Tell them you want them to put a ATT Mobile on their tower.

Here is another site AntennaSearch.com Find the owner of the cell tower contact them. Tell them they can get more revenue if they get ATT Mobile on their tower. Its worked for me and friends I know.
