Fire and security protectors

Should we protect our home and property? The answer is definitely a yes! Crime figures show an increase of 14% rise in domestic burglaries according to the annual crime figures for 2011 and 2011. This is according to the crime rate recorded in England and Wales from the British Crime Survey. The uprising statistics shows a relationship between the rising unemployment status and the difficult economic conditions.

Likewise, there were 321 recorded fatal and non-fatal casualties recorded between April 2010 and March 2011 in England as recorded by the National Statistics under the auspices of the UK Statistics Authority. Of the figures reported two-thirds of it account to accidental dwelling fires fatalities. With these data authorities are urging locals to take fire and security protection seriously.

To integrate security services in one’s home or business means complete security coverage against burglars, fire and other possible threats. This system responds in a timely manner to send out signals to appropriate local authorities to call out immediate action.  With the many systems sold in the market today for monitoring here are some of the common home and business security coverage.

Intruder alarms– Intruder alarms or commonly called as burglar alarms is a small button usually embedded in the door frame so the door automatically closes when it is pushed in. The critical component of a basic burglar alarm is the door entry system. Just like a family dog the alarm contains a built in electric circuit that detects the act of intrusion like opening a door or window.  When there is a forceful entry, the electricity flowing between the circuit systems triggers an alarm to notify the home owner of intrusion.

CCTV systems– Closed circuit television cameras or CCTV systems are today’s security features in many public and private institutions like the airport, railway terminals, hospitals, banks, government buildings and malls. As of now its usage is also widespread in homes and business properties. These high performance cameras come in digital video recorders with motion detection capabilities. In London alone, ‘camera watch’ has become a helpful way of monitoring suspicious individuals and in solving incidences of crime. With monitoring capabilities of this device authorities see to it that CCTV operators would use the systems appropriately to avoid intrusion of privacy among other individuals.

Fire alarm systems– Fire is a protection closely related to theft and trespassing. To some owning a fire extinguisher is enough. Others would opt for a much modern fire protection system. The first step to suppressing incidences of fire is to mitigate its cause. A fire risk assessment is an important component in keeping a home or an edifice fire-free. Audible and visible alarm system systems can be installed in appliances by tying them over circuits to provide signal to occupants. Another way is connecting the primary power supply to the fire alarm control panel. So would there be cases of closed circuit and appliance malfunction a secondary or separate power supply can operate. Likewise when heat ignites and produces fire automatic suppression systems would include smoke, flame and gas sensors so sprinklers can extinguish the fire in a timely manner.
