School security measures

Our school is in an area that gets a bit rough at night. We've had a lot of vandalism at night and during the holidays, and it costs the school a lot to get the vandalism repaired, so we are upping our security measures. It's very distressing for the entire school community when the school is vandalised, so we are hoping that a combination of key, locks and grilles along with security patrols can help to reduce the rate of vandalism we experience. This blog is all about security measures for schools, and I want it to be a place we can share the measures that work for our schools.

Various Advantages of Opting For Wireless Security Systems


Over the years, more and more homeowners have taken an interest in beefing up the security in their residences. Not only does this ensure your loved ones and valuables are safe, but it can also work toward decreasing your home insurance payments too. However, with the increase in popularity of home security systems also comes an increase in the array of options that are available. In this digital age, wireless security systems are one of the ideal choices for homeowners. Here are some of the various advantages of opting for wireless home security systems.

You eliminate the tangle of cables running through your home 

Conventional security systems needed to be plugged into walls and connected to phone lines. As such, burglars knew to cut off these wires before breaching premises. This would make them an inefficient option when it comes to the total protection of your home. With a wireless security system, you do not have to worry about camouflaging any cables in an attempt to hide them from potential invaders. Additionally, you do not have to worry about the wires and cables detracting from the aesthetic appeal of your residence. Although the main control panel of a wireless system will need to plugged into an electrical outlet, all the other components communicate through radio signals and run on rechargeable batteries all around your home.

You get the convenience of live monitoring

Live monitoring refers to the ability to keep tabs on your residence no matter where you are. With wireless systems, you can connect various internet-enabled devices to the security system. This allows you unlimited access to the various parts of your property by simply logging onto the system through your smart phone, laptop or tablet. With live monitoring, you have access to the video feeds that are being recorded by the various surveillance cameras on your property. This saves you the trouble of having to physically check on whether there are strangers on your property or not, whether you are in the home or away from it.

You get the advantage of home automation

Although a new feature when it comes to security systems, home automation is gradually gaining traction as a popular choice when selecting these systems. Home automation gives you the flexibility to control various processes in your home. During installation, the security contractors will interface the wireless system through your wireless devices, such as your smart phone. Once this is done, you have the ability to turn on the lights of your home, change the thermostat settings, disarm your security system and more all through the touch of a button.
