Brigadier Security Systems can supply and install a variety of intercom systems to meet the needs of a single home, multi-tenant building or office high rise. Supported by some of the best manufacturers, we can design a system to meet your needs.
At Brigadier Security Systems, we offer a variety of options for security systems for your home. When purchasing an alarm system, some things to consider protecting are all reasonably accessible points of entry, such as:
An alarm system should activate as the home’s perimeter is being violated, NOT AFTER the intruder is already in the house.
To achieve maximum coverage the system might incorporate several types of sensors including:
Motion sensors should not be used as the primary sensor type, but used in combination with other sensor technology. With limited sensors it is relatively easy for intruders to by-pass contacts. In this way, an intruder could access several rooms of the home without ever setting off the alarm. The type and level of protection you purchase should be decided upon after careful consideration of lifestyle and the primary intended use of the alarm.
Most homes have smoke detectors; only 15 percent have working CO detectors.
There’s no doubt that smoke detectors are one of the most important safety devices for the home and that they save lives. But they’re often taken for granted and assumed to be working.
Smoke detectors are far more common, however, than devices detecting carbon monoxide (CO). It is estimated that only 15 percent of homes have working CO detectors installed. Yet CO, an odorless and invisible gas, can be just as deadly and is, in fact, the leading cause of airborne poisoning.
In homes where smoke or CO devices are installed, retail stand-alone smoke or CO devices are the de facto standard. Unfortunately, for various reasons, many of these devices may not provide the protection they promise. For example, they may have been installed incorrectly, not received required maintenance, the sensors may be expired, the batteries may be dead, or, in some cases, the homeowner may have disabled the device themselves. One stunning statistic: less than half of the smoke detectors installed in homes with fires actually operated.
Most homeowners are completely unaware that they have another, much higher level of smoke and CO protection available: central station monitored, system-connected detection devices.
Fall and winter brings many things: annual holiday celebrations, garden harvests, colorful nature displays, followed in many locations by long nights and the accompanying cold temperatures occasionally combined with ice and snow. For some, this is a time to pull out that good book you’ve been saving, play family board games, sit by the fireplace with a good cup of coffee, tea or cocoa, and relax. For others, it heralds the thoughts of ski slopes, toboggans, ice skating, and rustic lodges.
Monitoring the temperature of your home and/or water leakage can save you the time, frustration and hassle of having to work through insurance, damage and repair to your property and the loss of personal belongings due to damages.
Moisture sensors can be placed anywhere in the home, particularly where water pipes are located. Should water leak, the sensor detects and a signal is sent to the monitoring station.

Do you ever feel a slight pang of anxiety when you leave your house? After locking the door, do you walk away backwards, unwilling to tear your protective gaze away? Instead of reluctantly easing into your car, do you eventually give up, running back to your house to stand guard over your property?
Unfortunately, for those worried about security, it's impossible to be in two places at once. We can't make a trip to the grocery store and expect to know exactly what's going on in every nook and cranny of our homes. We can install locks and alarm systems (which, incidentally, have driven down the number of burglaries over the years), but nothing is fail safe.
If you want to be able to actually see what happens while you're away, security cameras may calm your nerves. Video surveillance allows you to monitor or record activity in and around an area for many different reasons. For example, parents might want to watch over a sleeping child and lessen the risk of a dangerous fall from the crib. But a security camera system around the house can see people who approach the front door and maybe even catch a criminal in the act of breaking in.
At Brigadier Security Systems, we have a range of video surveillance cameras and recording units that could meet your needs.
Our Medical Alert system allows people to maintain their desire to live independently while assuring you and your family that assistance is available at push of a button. The system can also be expanded to add a Fall Detection device that will automatically trigger an alarm calling for assistance. Your family will appreciate the peace of mind that comes from knowing that an operator is standing by 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond if you ever need help.
How It Works
The Medical Alert system is easy to use. The control panel is discreet and has a strong two-way speaker, allowing you to talk to the Attendant without having to pick up the phone.
Brigadier Security Systems takes pride in offering a system that allows seniors and those with mobility challenges a device that allows them to be independent but able to get help when its needed.
