We are able to protect your most valuable assets, at home and at work, by equipping your home or office with a state-of-the-art hardwired or wireless security system. Our security systems are designed to provide enhanced comfort, safety and convenience. All installations are performed by qualified personnel who are fully trained in both fire and security.

We provide you with the latest in technology to keep your loved ones safe.  

Landline monitoring: A home phone line is required.  There is a risk using your phone line to send your alarm signals, one of the biggest, is someone cutting your phone line.  Also keep in mind, if your phone line is thru your internet modem, and your internet is slow there is a chance your alarm signal could be delayed.  If your alarm tries to send a signal but it can't go thru, you will get an error code on your keypad but the central station will have no way of knowing until you notify them.  

Digital Cellular monitoring:  No home phone line is required.  We would install a 4G cellular communicator that allows your alarm system to send signals thru the AT&T cellular towers. (Not affiliated with your personal cell phone.) When monitored by the cellular communicator, the AT&T cell tower checks in with your alarm system and if it does not get a response it will notify Airtronics that there might be a problem. (It keeps us in constant communication.) Also, by installing a cellular communicator you are also eligible for the remote services.  For more information on cellular monitoring have a look at this informative video https://youtu.be/7pkS7tvC5_s

CCTV or Closed Circuit Television, is a system that allows the owner to both monitor as well as record activity on his or her property.

If you’re curious about suspicious activity or would like the convenience and security of viewing who is at your front door, then a CCTV camera system is what you need.

There are plenty of options when it comes to camera  systems. When choosing cameras, it all depends on the application, if you want to see near or far, whether you prefer color or black & white, if you want them to be seen or installed covertly, and if the recording time is day / night or both. The wide selection of DVR’s & NVR's range from basic 80G hard drives to fully programmable multi-gig networkable drives with DVD rewritable capabilities. Basically, your options are endless with a CCTV camera system.

Camera technology has changed tremendously over the last few years.

 -“Older” Analog systems send video over coax cables to the digital video recorder (DVR). Picture quality is a much lower resolution. They max out on resolution at 580TVL (0.4 mega pixels). Most analog systems can be upgraded to digital.

-“Newer” Digital IP systems send video as a digital stream over an IP network to the network video recorder (NVR). One of the biggest selling points in the IP system is the high resolution they offer. IP cameras are currently offering resolutions above 5 mega pixels. This high resolution gives users the ability to see pictures much more clearly as well as the ability to zoom in on video after the fact, and still have usable video. IP systems being newer technology comes with a more expensive price.

Both systems offer the ability to record your footage on a hard drive with playback features as well as remote viewing access of your system thru an app on your smartphone or computer.

A few "Did you know" fun facts about surveillance cameras:

*Security cameras have been around for longer than we may imagine. Security cameras have been available since 1942, and in use since the 1960s.

*The first security camera was installed in Germany on a V2 rocket by an engineering company. Yes, it was used not for crime prevention but to watch the launch of a rocket.

*The security camera was designed and installed by the Germans engineer Walter Bruch.

*In 1992, 20 years after Walter Bruch developed the first camera, a security camera made its appearance in Olean, New York, USA. The city installed security cameras in a business district to help fight and deter crime.

*The banking industry was the first industry to adapt security cameras – no surprise there!

*In 1996, Axis Communications released the first IP camera.

*Today, in UK and US, video surveillance cameras are used ubiquitously, but they are most prevalent in the UK. The UK has 4 million cameras, which equals to 20% of the World’s total surveillance camera installations. The UK hosts one surveillance camera for every 11 people – wow that’s a lot of cameras!

*Only 9% of consumers today own a security camera.
Yet, around 67% of burglaries can be deterred by installation a security camera.

*The average citizen appears on a security camera over 300 times a day.

*Approximately 25 million surveillance cameras are operating around the world.

*Many industries use surveillance or security camera systems to monitor areas where it is not safe for humans or entry is not possible – i.e. nuclear power plants and chemical factories – more industries could use this, aka mining.

*Criminals also use security cameras. For example near ATMs to record your PIN number and bank information or to monitor behavior – comings and goings of individuals.

Structured wiring is a general term that refers to a whole-house network of audio, video, data, telephone, television, home automation or security wires. These direct lines are called “home runs” and they ensure the strongest possible connection and signal to each of your electronic devices.  All of these “home runs” are run back to a structured wiring enclosure so that all of the wiring in your home can be found in one location and all wires can be labeled.

If you are building a home, future wiring can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home.  In a good wiring plan all wires are run to a central location and it’s best to do this while the home is being built.  This has several advantages.  First, if there is a problem in the connection you only need to look at the two ends.  You don’t have to remember and check everywhere that the wire passes through.  It also gives you the ability to run extra wires for future use.

There are many steps to the process of building a home. It is crucial that first step towards integrating your home is a properly designed structured wiring system. We understand the importance of designing home systems for the lifestyles of today and preparing them for the lifestyles of tomorrow.

 

A structured wiring system is more than just a random set of cables run throughout the house, but rather is a systematically designed package which is installed by very stringent guidelines.

Our structured wiring packages are designed to bring together each subsystem into one fully automated system — while accommodating upgrades.

What is a wireless access point?

wireless access point (often referred to as a WAP) is a piece of equipment that enables you to connect devices which have wi-fi access to your wired network. Some wireless access points are integrated into a wireless router, but standalone ones are usually connected to a router via a wired Ethernet connection to provide access to the network using radio frequency links to enable other devices to access the wired connection.
Most homes only require a wireless router, which will usually have a wireless access point built into it, to provide wi-fi throughout an average-sized house. However, additional wireless access points are used in places such as offices, schools or other larger spaces, where there could be a number of devices trying to access a network as the use of access points negates the need for cables and wires to be run throughout the building.

The limits of a wireless access point

A single, standard access point is capable of communicating with up to 30 different clients over a distance of around 103 meters. However, these are maximums, and usually, there will be limitations to these imposed by the placement of the wireless access point, the structure and design of the building or area in which it is located and the presence of other devices which may interfere with its signal. Other factors which can affect the efficacy of a signal include the weather, the type of antenna used and the power output of the devices used. The range of an access point can be extended using repeaters to increase the radio signal or reflectors which allow the signal to be bounced around within the target area.

Are Wireless Router & Wireless Access Point the Same?

The answer is no. A router can be an access point but an access point can’t be a router. A router is able to provide WiFi access and has an Ethernet switch built in, while an access point is to connect the wired Ethernet LAN to WiFi devices.

Nowadays, wireless network is everywhere around us saving a lot of troubles for managing cable mess. A wireless router is often enough for family use since the coverage is limited. However, if you need to build up wireless network in large areas, wireless access point is always necessary.

Wi-Fi and internet are two different things. 

For years now, the term Wi-Fi has often been synonymous with access to the internet. Most of us use "Wi-Fi" as a shortcut to mean our home broadband internet connection. And when you're traveling, free Wi-Fi is understood as free internet since that's the only reason you use Wi-Fi when out and about.

Among other things, knowing the difference between Wi-Fi and internet connections can help you troubleshoot problems at home, purchase the right equipment for your network, and most importantly, understand the risk of using a free Wi-Fi network.

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi is simply an alternative to network cables as a way to connect devices of a local area network (LAN). Prior to Wi-Fi the only way to connect devices together was to run physical network cables between them, which can be inconvenient. Wi-Fi allows devices to connect to one another the same way as when network cables are used, just without the actual cables. A Wi-Fi network is basically a wireless local network.

The owner of the Wi-Fi network is in total control. She can change the name of the network, the password, the number of connected clients, allowing them to exchange data with one another or not, and so on. Even the Wi-Fi router or access point itself can be changed or turned on or off any time.

A home Wi-Fi network, which is almost always hosted by a router, is independent from the internet. Meaning that any devices on the network can always work with one another to share and back up data, print, stream local media and so on. A connection to the internet, however, enables them to also access internet-based services, such as Skype, Netflix, news, Facebook, Twitter and other services.

To connect a home Wi-Fi network to the internet, the router needs to be connected to an internet source, such as a broadband modem, via its WAN port. When this link is complete, the Wi-Fi signal of the local network will also provide a connection to the internet for any device connected to the network. So, Wi-Fi is just one way to bring the internet to a device. And this also explains why sometimes your Wi-Fi signal is at full strength, yet you still can't access the internet.

Internet

Generally known as the wide area network (WAN), the internet connects computers from around the world. In reality, the internet actually connects many local networks together, via a ton of routers. With the internet, your home local network is no longer secluded but becomes part of one giant worldwide network.

The internet connection is generally beyond the control of the users. Other than turning it on or off, the only other thing you can do is pay for the desired connection speed and hope you get what you pay for. Internet speed has progressively increased in the last decade. Ten years ago, a fast, residential broadband connection generally capped somewhere between 1.5Mbps to 20Mbps; now it's between about 50Mbps to 150Mbps and even faster.

That said, most of the time, the speed of the internet is still slower than that of a wired local network, which is either 100Mbps or 1,000Mbps. For a Wi-Fi network, the speed of the local network depends on the standards used by the Wi-Fi router (or access point) and the connected clients, and can sometimes be slower than a fast broadband wired internet connection.

What does this imply?

Just because you have Wi-Fi doesn't necessarily mean you have internet access. Also, having a strong Wi-Fi signal doesn't always translate into fast internet speed. In fact, to know how fast your internet speed is, in most cases, you need to test it independently from Wi-Fi.

That said, keep in mind that if you use Wi-Fi to share the internet, then it's the internet speed that you want. In this case, Wi-Fi is just the vehicle that carries internet to your device. This means if all you care about is a full Wi-Fi signal, then you're missing the point. Take Wi-Fi extenders, for example. These devices wirelessly extend the coverage of an existing Wi-Fi network. Each time the Wi-Fi signal is extended, there's a 50 percent signal loss. This means if you have a few Wi-Fi extenders, by the time the signal gets to the device you're using, there's not much "internet" left for a fast, stable connection. The best way to extend your Wi-Fi network is use multiple access points that connect to the main routers via network cables. If running cables is not an option, then be sure to have no more than one Wi-Fi extender in a network.

Most importantly, when you're connected to an unknown Wi-Fi network (such as one you see popping up on your phone or laptop when you travel), keep in mind that because you need to access their router to get on the internet, the owner of that Wi-Fi network can potentially see all the information you're sending and receiving, including usernames and passwords. That said, when using free Wi-Fi, unless you're accessing a secure website (one in which the address, or url starts with https) don't type in any sensitive information. Better yet, refrain from doing any online banking using free Wi-Fi. Also keep in mind that public Wi-Fi from known entities, such as an airport or an office, is generally more secure than a Wi-Fi network at a random cafe. An open Wi-Fi network, one that requires no password or agreement of terms of service to use, is the most risky.

A modern computer network begins by designing a wiring infrastructure that allows all subsystems to integrate fully and easily. The next step is the proper running and termination or all those cables. Lack of knowledge or care in these two important areas can slow your state of the art network to a snails place. We have the training, tools and test equipment to make sure you get all the speed you’re paying for.
