Better Home Security

These door lock systems use a technology which makes it difficult for any intruder to enter your house. Your family can stop worrying about anyone picking your locks while you’re away. Any unauthorized personnel trying to enter your home will have to know your personal access number of the door lock before they can open the door.

Changeable Entry Codes

The secret combination to keypad door locks can be easily changed into any other combination. When people feel that their current combination number has been divulged to unauthorized individuals, they can at anytime change the code. Additionally, if the current owners of the house decide to sell the property or have the house rented to others, they can always inform the new people living there know about the access combination to the locks. Taking away the need for new keys and new door locks.

Commercial Grade Door Locks

Lastly, the key pad door locks are extremely durable. You can always count on your keypad door lock even when you are away from your home. The benefits the key pad door lock provides are such that it has become a widely used security device for home security. If this does not appeal to you, you may want to choose from the many other types of key-less door lock systems that contain the ability to provide you optimum protection to your home every time you step out of that door.

Access Control Systems utilize technology and procedures to maintain access for whom is able to go where and when they may enter that area. An Access Control System is made of: input/output devices to manipulate ingress/egress (doors, windows, and related equipment) systems. In order, to maintain and manipulate information regarding a known risk system and to manage information regarding personnel there is a central database. An Access Control System has multiple components: (Doors) entryways, locking devices (Locks), sensors to monitor if the door is open or closed. Verification devices are used to properly identify authorized users, and devices to allow exiting from the secure area to the outside. Notification Protocols contained in an external system to control devices within the system such as a PC.

Biometric Access Control System

Biometric Access Control System

Access Control Systems benefit using technology within accordance in clearly defined and carefully built security procedures allow an organization to create a highly effective means of managing risk. Risk management is when an organization is able to minimize their vulnerability to losses. Companies without effective means to manage risk, and associated costs often see a severe impact in short-term profits and a rise in costs to offset losses.

Access Control Systems require four basic technologies in order to function adequately; PC (personal computer) to manage overall system control of all input devices (devices that detect conditions or events not specifically a door) Access Control doors and the related peripherals, including card readers, keypads, etc. Output Devices are items that respond directly to the input devices. (How they interact is explained below.)

System Architecture

Before we examine specific Access Control components, we will discuss briefly the architecture involved in an Access Control System. The systems architecture has three basic levels: field controllers, entry/exit devices, and the head end. The “head end” provides the system management capability for all the devices in the network and related information. The “Head End” is typically a personal computer (PC) that receives input information and initiates a signal at the appropriate locations with Basic Access Control Technologies devices. Operator interfacing takes place at the head end (PC).

In most systems now, field controllers, reside between the PC and the entry/exit devices; field controllers provide most of the moment-to-moment controls for the Access Control System. In older systems without the use of intelligent field controllers the PC almost exclusively provided these controls, and when a fault occurs and the (PC) head end goes offline, the entire system became unresponsive. Thankfully today this is not the case. In today’s systems, when the head end is offline, the field controllers ensure the system continues to operate in an effective manner.

Entry/Exit Devices are the “end-of-the-line” components. Working with field controllers, these low level components are able to provide minimal decision making capability independent (PC), to ensure a basic usage of Access Control functionality in case of a fault.

Head End (PC)

The PC functions as a control unit for the system. The PC receives processes and relays data to other devices within the Access Control network. It provides the operator a display to monitor system and day to day operations. In addition, the PC provides the operator a means to “interrogate” the system thoroughly, meaning the operator is able to request specific information about the status of the system and any of the devices within the system. They can also initiate specific actions at any specified location within the system from the Head End.

The PC also stores data and allows the operator to retrieve information, create reports, and back-up any data. In the larger applications requiring advanced systems there may be multiple control units (PC)s located throughout the system. It also should be noted that as we design security systems we prefer to have Access Control systems built on a its own Local Area Network (LAN). This provides significant advantages over the systems which exist on an organization’s main LAN.

Field Controllers

These days, security/surveillance systems are networked together. More importantly, they feature “distributed architectures.” This basically means that instead of having all processing capabilities residing at the head end (PC), processing is “distributed” at many points throughout the network. Field controllers provide this additional processing.

A field controller contains:  a CPU (central processing unit), Network communications capability, I/O (input/output) modules (printed circuit boards), card reader modules (printed circuit boards).

Field controllers allow the system to continue to function when the head end (PC) is temporarily unavailable or if another section in the system is down. If this happens, the field controllers store all event activity in order to upload later to the head end (PC) once the system is functional again. If a field controller has requirement for additional information to process a command, it can request information from the head end (PC). Additionally, scheduled exchanges of required data between the head end (PC) and the field controllers allow tracking for events to be logged into history and the current information made available to the field controllers. Also note, our security networks are custom designed to use the industry standard communications protocols. This ensures high level of reliability and minimum down time in the event of component failures.

Input Devices

Input devices are connected to Access Control Systems and any detector which reports their status to a PC electronically. The purpose is to provide data to the processor in regards to the current conditions at any given location.  Typically they include a wide range of detector types, including: glass break detectors, motion detectors, panic buttons, temperature monitors, ETC.

In addition, to the devices listed above there are additional functioning items that physically reside near or on a door. These devices provide data specifically related to if the door’s open or closed.

Each of these devices provides data directly to the head end (PC) The Head end (PC) can perform a variety of analysis, the modern user interfaces and a wide range of output options.

Access Doors and Related Peripherals

There are many intricate devices designed in order to control the status of a door. These devices include; door contact switches place requests with exit devices, card readers and/or keypad devices. Door position indicators show the current status of a door and reveal whether it’s open or closed. They are basic electrical devices, by completing a circuit when the door is closed.

Request exit devices are simple electrical switches. These devices are used to indicate someone inside the secured side of the Access Control Door wants to have the door unlocked. This action is typically reported to the PC.

Keypads and Card Readers are perhaps they are the most sophisticated door peripherals used in operation of a Control System. These particular devices, usually exist as a integrated or single unit

Finally, each Access Control door is equipped with a locking mechanism. Either an magnetic lock or electric door strike which can be manipulated by a field controller.

Card Readers and Keypads Card

Keypad Card Readers and Card Readers are devices that read data from the users supplied card. There are a wide variety of distinct media used for these cards: proximity (active or passive), magnetic stripe, bar code, Passive proximity cards, all contain electronic circuitry (including an antennas) which stores the ID data. Each time these cards pass near a reader, then electrical energy radiating from the reader charges the circuitry in the card. Then the circuitry transmits the data (ID information) on the card to the reader. Each card proximity card maintains its own power source. This “on-board” power supply their by increases the range.  Proximity card technology is easy-to use and provides a high level of security. Each card stores information in a unique fashion.

What happens while you are away from home? Does the cleaning lady take a little money from the found in the laundry fund? Does your nosy neighbor come by to peek in your windows? Does your repair man watch the pay per view channels on your television while you are at work?

In addition to these minor concerns, more major worries about break ins, thefts, and loss of property conducted by intruders can weigh heavily on the minds of private individuals and professionals who find it necessary to be away from their home or business. The loss of protection associated with leaving a home without surveillance is enough to urge anyone to purchase a network of security cameras.

Who Could Benefit from the Use of a Security Camera?

While almost anyone can benefit from buying security cameras to protect a home, there are some groups which can see an even bigger boost in security.

People Who Own Homes

Home owners love security cameras. Adding extra protection for the people and objects that you have worked hard to keep safe can ease the minds of many home owners. Owners can also use security cameras to protect items such as boats, ATVs, off road vehicles, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and other toys which may not be immediately visible from a a home. In the past, people who owned homes were less likely to go on vacation because they felt that their home was at risk for break-ins. Now, with the security camera technology much improved, it is possible to monitor a home from remote locations through the internet.

Apartment Building Owners

The owners of apartment buildings have a number of problems to manage. The difficult added responsibility of protecting residents and conducting surveillance of an apartment building can be enough to drive any landlord crazy. Adding security cameras to the security system of an apartment building can help a building owner to watch the happenings of various sectors of a building in one secure location.

School Administrators

School children are under the constant threat of people who wish to intrude on their education, sick people who prey on children. In addition, schools have been seeing an increase in violent activities conducting by students, including stabbings and shootings. Adding a system of security cameras to a school can help to protect students and teachers from school violence through preventative measures.


Like apartment buildings, hotels face the constant coming and going of individuals. Preventing theft and violence is a top goal of hotel owners. Saving a hotel from property damage and being able to catch security threats quickly and efficiently.

Parents of Small Children

Small children are unable to defend themselves against threatening adults. For this reason, installing a security camera at the entrance of a home can help children to determine whether or not they know that person at the door and whether they should open the door to let the visitor inside.

Small Businesses

Small businesses need security, but do not have the budget to buy a lot of equipment or employ security guards. A security camera can be the solution that such a business needs.

Large Corporations

Every large corporation should own a system of security cameras to protect the people, information, and equipment that is required to make the company run smoothly.

Security Camera Installation Types

There are several different types of security cameras available. The type of camera that you choose should depend upon how and where you are going to use it, and how much space you have to utilize. These include:

Nanny Cams

Nanny cams, also known as hidden cameras, are often disguised as a functional item. These hidden cameras make it possible to legally watch a babysitter, nanny, repairman, or housekeeper without detection. Minicams continue to be popular among people who would like to monitor the care of their children while they are out working.


Dome shaped cameras blend in more easily than bullet cameras and make it less possible to detect a camera’s range and angle.


Bullet cameras are in a cylindrical shape. They can easily be hidden and capture across a wide range of view. Bullet cameras are used for both residential and commercial applications.


Infrared cameras detect light below the visible ranges. This means that a camera can capture an image even in the dark.

How Security Cameras Work

Security cameras work by capturing a series of images, or frames, and transmitting them to a television and/or recording device. Cameras may transmit images either wireless or through a building electrical system. Wireless cameras may use WiFi to transmit an image to a computer or other enabled device. The footage captured by a security camera may then be viewed through a playback function,, or zoomed in on. Because every security camera is unique, it is a poor end to consult the user’s guide or manual before attempting to use a security camera.

Security cameras come with many different features and have a variety of applications for which they are intended. When shopping for a security camera, it is important to consider what the camera will be used for, how often it will be used, and how much of an area it is supposed to cover.
