Our Frequently Asked Questions

This depends on the nature of your property, building, and business. For most commercial sites, security has to deal with illegal entry, theft, and trespassing. This means intruder alarms and cameras are essential for your commercial security system. Also, fire alarms are equally crucial to your overall system for safety and building standards compliance. 

Your home security can be simple or complex. But for your basic needs, your security system can consist of magnetic sensors for entryways, infrared motion sensors inside and outside of the home, and a control panel with a loud siren. The panel should also be connected to a monitoring company that can dispatch emergency personnel. 


Your system can usually be operated remotely by keychain controls or apps on your smartphone to arm or disarm the system and alert you and monitoring personnel in case of emergency. 

Yes, our Austin Security Consultants can help you plan a security system for your Austin home or business. We’re well experienced with the ever-evolving and complex security systems technologies today. We can assist you from the design phase to the final installation inspection of your commercial security system. 

In case of a power cut, your security system will switch to backup battery power for up to 24 hours. If it relies on Wi-Fi, it may change to cellular backup. If, however, your system works over landlines, it should continue to work even in a power outage.

There are both advantages and disadvantages to wireless and hard-wired security systems. While a hard-wired system may seem more reliable, it can be more expensive to install, and there is always a risk of wires being cut – accidentally or intentionally. Wireless systems are more versatile and quicker to install with (or without) a technician. They are also portable and can be remotely operated. Wireless systems work with cellular signals which are stronger than those used for cell phones, but they’re also functional with weaker signals.

Most system control panels are built to be tamper-proof. Even an attempt to disable a system by breaking the control panel sends an alert to the monitoring company, which will send out emergency personnel.

Alarms are noisy and will set emergency procedures in motion, so false alarms should be avoided. You could also face penalty charges from the police, fire, or other emergency personnel. By law, you have 30 seconds to disable your security alarm before the monitoring company responds. Additionally, if your alarm is triggered, you can inform the monitoring company that you don’t require any service.
