Security Systems

Echo Workshop can evaluate your needs and design a system to help protect what is most important to you.

Security Systems

Protecting our families and homes is something on all of our minds, but what’s the best way to do that?  There are many options when choosing between products and services available today.  Let’s break down some of those options and what that means to your safety. 

One of the first things you need to consider is what you are trying to accomplish with your system and how much you want it to do. There are two types of systems commonly used in homes:  security systems and surveillance systems.  A surveillance system is used primarily for monitoring your property.  You can go back into your CCTV (closed circuit TV) system and take a look at what has already taken place.  A surveillance system’s primary goal is to deter crime before it takes place and to have video evidence for later viewing. 

A security system can do more for you, including notifying you and a central monitoring station that an event is taking place, and if the situation calls for it, the monitoring station can report it to the appropriate emergency service.  A standard security system monitors the opening of windows and doors, and also gives you the ability to add additional features that monitor for fire, smoke, heat and other environmental emergencies. 

While family and home security are the number one reasons any of us consider a security system, there are added benefits you may not have considered to securing your home or business.   With many people adding a Smart Home System, you can monitor more than just your cameras.  Have you considered the convenience of being able to unlock and lock your doors when you need to let family or a neighbor in?  What about scheduling lighting to simulate your activity when you’re away or turning lights off and adjusting your thermostat to save energy and money?

Is your head still swimming with all of the options available?  Do you still have questions about what type of system is best for you?  Let the experts at Echo Workshop help.  We can evaluate your needs and design a system to help protect what is most important to you.
