In our ever-changing information age, it is not uncommon for consumers to desire an upgrade to the outdated systems they’ve possessed. Modern advancements to alarm systems created an aspiration for bigger and better products with more effective services. The standard electrical wire systems have long been replaced by digital, wireless, and touch screen systems. The earliest alarm systems, known as ‘local alarms’, only provided those within earshot awareness to an intrusion. In other words, if you could not hear the alarm, the alarm was of no assistance to you and your security needs. This device’s main duty was just that, to alert the homeowner. Over time, this useful apparatus has evolved into more complex versions of security technology. With that said, the need for home and business owners with outdated alarms and security systems has never been more relevant. Delco Alarm possesses the knowledge, staff, and system upgrade packages to fit any consumers’ requirements.
There are a number of reasons why a home or commercial owner would decide they are in need of an upgrade. In some situations, a construction or cosmetic upgrade to a home or business space may call for rewiring of an old security system. The old wiring may be in the way of construction and become less compatible with the new hardware or designs being installed. In some instances, the owner may opt to switch out the incompatible and out-of-date devices. Keep in mind that with systems 10 to 15 years old, individual parts and
models maybe hard to come by as they cease to be in production. In these events, an overall upgrade is needed. In other cases, even when older models and parts are easily obtained, these older pieces may not be compatible with today’s latest technology. This also results in the need for an overall upgrade. For universal safety precautions, other devices within a security system should be replaced after the 10-year mark simply to avoid malfunction or a lapse in functionality and the need to limit false alarms. Fire alarms, devices that seek to alert outside entities of an issue and motions devices should simply be upgraded or replaced after several years in service. This type of partial upgrade ensures that your system is continually functional and working to applicable standards of care.
But the most common reason to upgrade an alarm and security system is simply to improve the functionality and actual features of an alarm system. Newer systems have capabilities beyond that of a simple warning alert. Newer systems boast of advances including the ability to monitor your home from a mobile device, the ability to control central air functions and temperatures of the home or office space, the ability to lock and unlock doors and/or windows even when you are away from home as well as live video feedback of your home accessible from any location where wi-fi and internet services are available. The lists of amenities are endless. An upgrade is eminent for any consumer who wishes to benefit from virtual security advantages and functionality that works in conjunction with the modern world.
