Is home security expensive?
In short, it depends. Orbit Security Systems offers a variety of products, services, and packages at different price points. We believe that you shouldn’t have to break the bank to make sure your family or business is secure. An Orbit security technician will talk through the options with you to help you identify the appropriate services for your home that work for your budget.
Do I really need home security?
We ALWAYS recommend some form of home security system. As technology moves forward, so does the ability of criminals to identify and take advantage of gaps in security. Even the sound of a simple home alarm systems can sometimes be enough to deter an intruder. One of our home security experts can work with you to find the best security system for you and your family.
What is CCTV?
CCTV stands for closed circuit television. It is a system wherein a camera on one end securely transmits a signal to a limited set of privately held monitors. CCTV is mostly used for surveillance, so that all activity in a certain area can be monitored and recorded. Orbit Security Systems offers both installation and monitoring services for your CCTV system.
If I have a home security camera installed, can it get hacked?
While it is unlikely that your wireless home security camera will be hacks, unfortunately, such attacks are possible. However, there are some steps you can take to prevent cyber attack of your home cameras. Some of these are as simple as remembering to change the username and password from the default. Others are more complex but more secure, such as installing a VPN. Talk to your expert Orbit installer for more tips on how to protect your camera system from attack.
Is a wired or wireless security system better?
Depending on your situation, one may be better for you than the other. Wireless security systems are easily installed and are more versatile in terms of location options. However, just like all wireless hardware, its effectiveness depends on the strength and connection of the wireless signal. Wireless systems are also susceptible to outside interference which can dampen the signal, therefore making it less reliable than hardwired systems. While wired systems are more reliable, the downside is that hardwiring is permanent (the system can’t move with you), and usually more time-consuming and expensive to install.
Do I need a smart/automated security system?
Smart or automated security systems are among the latest advances in security technology. They offer a convenient, flexible means by which to optimize, control, and even remotely monitor activity in a secured area. Many of our clients choose to have this type of system installed for the convenience and additional peace of mind that it offers them. However, our security systems do not depend on smart technology or automation to operate. Ask your Orbit tech if you have questions about whether automation is right for you.
