I took this picture in Guatemala, Isabal
Here at Peak Alarm we the following configuration of systems that are set up independently of each other:
A.ACCESS CONTROL LIMITING ACCESS INTO THE BUILDING AND ALLOWING ACCESS OF CERTAIN PEOPLE INTO SPECIFIC AREAS ON TIME SCHEDULES.
B.SECURITY (INTRUSION) SYSTEMS LIMITING WHO CAN DISARM SPECIFIC AREAS DURNING SPECIFIC TIMES AND DAYS.
C.FIRE ALARM INCLUDING SMOKE DETECTION,SPRINKLER MONITORING,PULL STATIONS AND OTHER DETECTION 24/7
D.DIGITAL HIGH DEFINITION CAMERAS THAT ARE REMOTELY MONITORED AND RECORDED.
2. Security Systems in both buildings are partitioned and manager codes can disarm anytime and other codes are limited to areas and specific times. An example of this is that Sales People cannot disarm the installation department, the shop or the accounting office but they can only disarm the sales offices. The installation department is similar that they can come in early but cannot disarm the other areas but only installation and the warehouse shop area. Some entry level or residential security systems do not have the ability to partition into areas and many of them are limited on how many users you can have so do some research before you buy so you can have a professional company do the installation the proper way.
3. Independent of the security system is the access control system. Prox cards that have been issued will allow you to open specific doors in specific areas but then you need a security code to disarm those areas. Some companies say “It would be easier if we could read our prox card and have it disarm the security system” and yes that would make things easier for you and for those trying to defeat your system if they found a prox card. It is best to keep these two systems separate. Peak Alarm can install a system that is integrated but if something happens to that system both your access control and your security system could be compromised.
4. In a separate 24 hour manned area Peak Alarm has a bank of cameras that monitored all four of our locations. This central station has bulletproof glass, a man trap. (An entry where you enter into a small hallway and cannot go out or in when one of the doors is open without approval from those inside.) The access, security, fire alarm and the cameras are monitored from this central station as well as thousands of our accounts. Peak Alarm has a large Guard Division both armed and unarmed to respond to alarms and customer concerns. One of our most valuable services is when we get temperature alarms from either vacation homes or homes of people that are on vacation. This can indicate that the heat has gone off and we can get a guard up there to help get it back on before the pipes freeze and or burst, this avoids expensive repairs to a home. Smoke Detectors are not normally tied to the security systems in most homes so we recommend that you install additional detection and we have smoke detectors that detect smoke, heat and also low temperatures.
5. Every night our main server is backed up in the other building and the server in the other building backs up to the one in the main building.
6. We have emergency generators that will kick on within seconds in a power failure and batteries that hold the power so there is no delay or loss of data in our central station. Our dispatchers will only know there has been a power outage because of an emergency light that lights up.
