Home security is a growing part of the aerial and satellite engineers work. They fit quite nicely as a bolt on for the aerial fitter, or it can bring in the main stay of work and income for the business. With most of the wholesalers from which the aerial fitters buy from also supplying CCTV equipment and security alarms, it is an easy niche for the aerial fitters to move on into.
The type fo cameras supplied tend to be easy to install HD cameras for a small business or home CCTV system. These systems are fairly easy to install and come with a PVR recorder that can be accessed by mobile phone anywhere in the world. The PVR is connected to the cameras, and this, in turn, is connected via ethernet cable to the homes own internet. It is a handy piece of kit, and being able to view the images coming from the CCTV cameras is a nice feature & one which can help swing the deal with any potential customer.
Along with CCTV cameras and systems, some suppliers are also selling full intruder alarm systems for home and business. These can also come as wireless intruder alarm systems for both the home or business. Most popular are the wireless versions since they can be fitted very easily, with the least amount of mess. Their power comes from lithium batteries that can last well over 3 years without needing to be changed. The only part of the kit that needs hard wiring into the electricity supply is the keypad & the external alarm box.
As with the CCTV cameras, having an active alarm box fitted in a prominent position, acts as a good deterrent to would-be thieves and opportune burglars. Along with the security cameras that operate as good at night using their infra red ability, the wireless motion detectors are also able to work in both day and night time conditions. There is also the ability to set the sensors in such a way as to not pick up the movement of pets when the alarm is set in the night time when everyone is in bed.
