We procure and install security infrastructure at the best prices.
A criminal’s primary advantage is the element of surprise, and this needs to be taken away. To achieve this, we suggest that you create circles of defense that extend from the perimeter fence that surrounds your yard to the inside of your home.
The house, yard, neighbours, community and communication structures such as WhatsApp groups all have to be considered in helping secure your home and also your community.
It’s estimated that around 70% of home invasion attacks take place at the sleeping quarters. Commander Security can help you prevent these attacks from happening through our customized security plans that cater for specific areas in your home even if you cannot secure the entire house. Make the home your security priority.
To execute a successful break-in at night, criminals often break in at a point far away from the bedroom area, and our security systems will alert you and give you time to protect yourself and even activate a panic button.
A properly fitted electric fence with an alarm system is often a deterrent that can give you peace of mind 24/7. Security electric fences are a type of sensor that act as a (or part of a) physical barrier though their electric shock element, a psychological deterrent to potential intruders, and as part of a security alarm system.
CCTV Cameras and supporting systems are vital in identifying where the criminals are in your yard in an event where they do trigger the home alarm system.
This safeguards the house-occupants from having to exit the house to investigate the source of the trigger. CCTV Cameras also record the activities and modus operandi of the trespassers. Which can be viewed in the home or remotely via your cellphone. The footage collected by the cameras can be used to identify the perpetrators, their movements and their activities. The footage can be used as vital evidence which can secure a successful conviction in the court of law.
Outdoor Security Beams
Outdoor security beams for your yard often let out a laser beam that detects when motion passes through it. When this occurs, a signal is sent to the alarm panel and the alarm is activated. Therefore letting the owner and occupants know that there is an intruder before anyone enters the house.
Indoor Security Passives
These are vital in your home to detect any form of intrusion. They are a great function to have on the alarm especially when going on holiday or traveling frequently. This function can be added to your alarm to send a notification alerts.
Door Contact Sensors
Door contact sensors are an important component of security systems and smart homes. They detect when intruders open windows or doors. A contact sensor can turn your lights on, trigger smart door alerts on your smartphone or control a smart thermostat, among other functions.
Panic buttons at strategic places around your house and even a sturdy security gate that separates the living area from bedrooms are an absolute must in protecting your home and eliminating the criminals’ element of surprise.
