Advanced technology plays a vital role in private security today. Many technology products have been introduced into the market to enhance private security. Majority of these appliances are used in private sectors and homes to improve security of individuals and people. These products have proved to be more efficient and due to technological advancement in every life, more and more of these products are also being manufactured to grow with the technological changes. This article looks at some of the technology products that are in the current market today.
To begin with, we have the Annunciator . This is a device that gives a visual indication as to which of a number of electric circuits has operated. For instance, an indicator in a hotel showing in which room a bell has been rung.
In one common alarm sequence, the light in a window will flash and a bell or horn will sound to attract the operator's attention when the alarm condition is detected. The operator can silence the alarm with a button, and the window will remain lit as long as the process is in the alarm state. When the alarm clears (process condition returns to normal), the lamps in the window go out.
An example: Model PD154 / 4-Point
Some key features
- 8 Field selectable sequences
- All common ISA Sequences including first-out
- Switch, Transistor, and Logic level Inp
- Universal power supply
Next is the Bullet-resistant materials which are commonly used where the threat of attack by an armed criminal is likely. Bullet-resistant materials can both protect employees as well as discourage robbery attempts and other types of crimes involving the use of a firearm. They are commonly used at banks, pharmacies, check cashing centers, and other businesses that handle cash or narcotics in high-risk neighborhoods.
Bullet-resistant materials are of different types: Bullet-Resistant Glazing is used when ballistic protection is needed, but direct visual contact is also required between the protected area and the non-protected area
Bullet-resistant panels are most commonly used to protect the walls surrounding the openings where bullet-resistant glazing is used.
Bullet-resistant doors are used when a door is required in a wall that forms part of a bullet-resistant barrier
Bullet-resistant accessories are used when it is necessary to pass objects through a bullet-resistant barrier.
An Example: BIM Model
- Compliance UL-752 Levels 1-4
- Sizes 60 x 96 Max / 12 x 12 Min
- Another important product used is the The Fire optic.
A range of vibration sensitive detection systems, using special optical fibre cables as the sensitive medium.
These can be installed on fences, pipelines or even buried and can use either newly installed or existing fibres to provide cost effective protection for long perimeters and pipes.
A special, low cost system is also available for the protection of solar panel and photo-voltaic cell arrays.
Example is the FD322 Fiber-Optic Perimeter Detection System from F iber SenSys, Inc.
As well as acting as a deterrent, burglar alarms help to catch intruders and scare them away, providing you with peace of mind.
Many burglar alarms use a circuit break system, for example, switches will be placed either side of a window which create a circuit when closed. If an intruder breaks this connection by forcing the window open, this sends a signal to the control box, setting off the alarm.
When switched on the device becomes illuminated and this illumination changes intensity at quick random intervals, simulating the light flickering effect of a TV. The device itself consumes very little power and is very safe
Model PD154 / 4-Point
- Simulates scene and color changes, fades, and on-screen motion
- Built in light sensor and timer
- Small: about the size of a coffee cup
- Bright: 12 built-in super bright LEDs produce light output equivalent to 27" LCD HDTV
- Saves energy-- consumes just the power of a night-light
- AC Adaptor included
In the Parking and Traffic Control, many products have been developed to provide security and safety measures. An example is the cross park model
CrossParkcan be used at every closed car park, parking area or multi-storey car park. Also suitable for hotels, sport, culture or business facilities – simply everywhere where vehicle movement control in restricted areas, traffic regulation and detailed parking fee payment accounting are needed.
Thanks to its variability and modularity, CrossPark can be used from the smallest car parks with just a few parking spaces up to complex of multi-storey parking facilities for thousands of cars with many entries and exits.
The Motion detector is also another product used for private security purposes. They are similar in design to tilt switches. The sensor will be in one condition (open or closed) at rest. When it is subjected to motion it will continually change state as long as it remains in motion. This product can be used in anti-theft devices or in man-down alarms to detect non-motion and others.
An example: RX-40PI - Optex Infrared
- Patented Quad Zone Logic
- Spherical Lens Design
- Temperature Compensation
- Sealed Optics
- Selectable Pulse Count: 2 or 4
- 5 Year Warranty
- Optional Long Range Lens (FL-60N)
