Protecting your home and business has always been important. Protecting means not just taking care of security, but also making sure all systems are running smoothly so you can focus on what matters the most. However, over the years technology has been getting more complex, systems get integrated together and at some point you need experts like Daniel Sumarokoff & his team.
Many of our clients come to us with the same issue – their network cabling or a security system was not thought through. This often results in a need to redo the work or in some cases – remove the cabling and security systems and go through the process of setting up the new one.
Going with inexperienced specialists can cost you more in the long run. If you are not sure if you should do the wiring or security system installation yourself or call an expert, consider the following.
It’s Not Just Security Camera Installation
A modern home or a business is a complex and often a connected system. That’s why setting up a camera or plugging in a server is not enough. You need to think these through really well. In case of a connected home your access control systems, WiFi access points, security cameras and other devices need to be a part of a well-designed system. This will save you money and time in the long run. A well-designed solution, will be easy to adjust or fix in the years to come. In addition, work done according to standards will last longer, and give you a certainty that your home or business is as safe as it can be.
Designed to Accomplish your Objectives
Let’s consider a security camera system. Except for giving you a peace of mind, it is also a well-known deterrent from criminals. That’s why when it comes to selecting the right cameras or setting them up, there is a number of things to be considered. You need to know what cameras to set up and where, how to appropriately angle the cameras, as well as making the cameras visible to the people passing by.
When placed strategically, the fear of being caught can potentially prevent the crime before it happens. These are not the things that people who don’t do this every day commonly think about. And just another reason to get an expert working on your security camera installation.
Things are Constantly Changing
What was a good solution ten years ago or what is advertised as a good solution may not be a good choice anymore. This is true for network cabling for offices and security systems.
New powerful standards, new cables, servers and other solutions are introduced all the time. You need an expert to help choose the right solution that would accomplish your objectives. But also, you need an expert to setup your system in a thought-through way. When done properly, future upgrades, fixes and maintenance will be easy to do.
Think about it, when you pay for professional network design, you pay for expertise. While you can do some of the installations in your home and office yourself, chances are you wouldn’t know about the details that you have to account for to build a lasting solution. You don’t always pay for time, sometimes you simply pay for knowledge. Many of our clients come to us for peace of mind. And that’s exactly what certified Technicians like those who work at Citadel bring to the table.
