At KeepSafe Systems, we do not like to tie ourselves down to only one particular manufacturer. For that reason, KeepSafe Systems clients, can be assured they will have access to all the best products available in the security alarm industry.

Of course, there are certain security alarm manufacturer's we prefer, we will never force you into having a particular brand of security alarm system installed in your home. If you happen to like another brand better than any of our regular brand security alarm panels.... not a problem. It is all about fulfilling your individual security alarm system needs.

Although we do not limit the scope of the security alarm products we install and service, there are some products which do stick out as exceptional enough to list in here. Stay tuned as I add more products to this page. I must clarify, this is by no means a complete list of the security alarm systems and detectors KeepSafe Systems services and installs.

Lone Worker Safety Systems

Panic alarms have long been part of the security alarm industry, as have "Dead man" or "Operator Down" systems in monitoring stations where it is imperative operators are available 24/7.

The concept of a Lone Worker, "Man Down" or "Dead Man Switch" is quite simple. A local timer which activates a buzzer that requires the pressing of a button within an allotted period of time. If the acknowledgement button is not pressed within the required time period, another monitoring station is notified and the appropriate authorities are dispatched.

Recent government regulations on Lone Worker's require that all workers working on their own must have some sort of safety monitoring system in place. KeepSafe Systems Lone Worker Monitoring system is the ideal solution. As with all Systems designed and installed by KeepSafe Systems, the KeepSafe Systems Lone Worker monitoring system is completely customized to your needs. The number and location of verification buttons can be located in area's convenient and important to your business. There is also no limit to the number of buttons installed in a particular location. Lone Worker Buttons can act together, where the worker simply need press any of the buttons, or separate area's of the site can have their own Lone Worker buttons on the same or different time schedules.

Response to the Lone Worker system is also customizable to your own personal needs. The important thing to know is KeepSafe Systems operators are available for your workers 24/7 365 days a year.

In addition to standard time based Lone Worker Systems, KeepSafe Systems also has 2 Way voice panic alarm systems available. These are typically used as Medical alert systems, however they are also ideal for Lone Worker applications where the worker moves around alot during their shift. Unlike the old style wireless 2 way voice systems you hear about on the radio, the KeepSafe Systems Medical Alert System has the speaker and microphone included in the portable pendant. That way, your worker can get in contact with the 24/7 KeepSafe Systems Professional monitoring station wherever they are within the coverage area of the portable 2 way voice panic alarm pendant.

For More information or to arrange for KeepSafe Systems to design a custom Lone worker Monitoring System for your companies specific requirements, please feel free to contact us 24/7 at 604-874-8772. Your security needs do not take weekends off, so neither do we. KeepSafe Systems clients can be assured we are available for you when and where you need us.

360 Degree Ceiling Motion Detector

Blind spots and obstructions are always a concern when in comes to space protection. It is quite common for articles of furniture to be moved and dividing walls to be placed in a position as to block the coverage pattern of a motion detector.

Ceiling motion detectors are not new to the security alarm industry, in fact they have been around for quite some time. However, like the glassbreak detector, the ceiling motion detector has be widely underutilized. The primary reasons being cost and occasional difficulty average installers have in installing them in retro-fit situations. Luckily, KeepSafe Systems does not employ "Average Installers."

Unlike traditional corner mount motion detectors, 360 degree ceiling motion detectors look down on the scene, therefore, most items which would block the horizontal plane have no effect on the "view" of the 360 degree ceiling motion detector.

The 360 degree ceiling motion detector is not always the ideal solution, often a balance between corner mount long range motion detectors, ceiling mount motion detectors and floor sensors should be utilized for optimal space protection. The range of a 360 Degree Ceiling Motion detector is also inversely proportional to its' mounting height. A detector mounted on an 8 foot ceiling  will provide much less coverage (24 feet by 20 feet) than one mounted on a 12 foot ceiling (35feet x 20feet). At KeepSafe Systems, we make it our job to ensure you have the best space protection possible. Give us a call and we can help keep you and your belongings safe :)

 

The Floor Sensor

Pet proof motion detectors are not a new thing, in fact, there have been quite a number of attempts at differentiating a human vs a pet. Manufacturer claims range from PIR type sensors being able to determine whether the object is in fact the proper vertical height of a human (As if Criminals cannot crawl on the floor and pets do not jump off furniture) while others lay claims to be able to determine the actual weight of  the object by means of some calculation based on the amount of space occupied by the object combined with it's movement patterns blah blah blah.

Fact of the matter is, although some of these sensors work... well let's say occasionally. The reason I am so skeptical of PIR based "Pet Proof" motion detectors is because variables can change. While a simple change in the size of number of pets may adversely effect one sensor, location of furniture can drastically effect another. Combine with that, the reduced effective sensitivity of a "Pet Proof" motion detectors and you may well not be receiving the actual interior protection you expect and paid for.

So what can someone with a pet or a number of pets do to protect the interior of their home without having to deal with reduced coverage or false alarms? Well, there are a few options out there. In the past, I have spoken at length about glassbreak detectors. These are great audio sensors which are designed to detect the sound of breaking glass. When installed properly, glassbreak detectors will sound the alarm if someone attempts to gain access to your home or business by means of breaking a window. Since glassbreak detectors are not motion sensing devices, they are very pet proof. In some cases, a large dog barking right below the detector may cause a false alarm. Proper placement and installation, however, will alleviate most bark initiated false alarms.

So what about interior motion detection. Well, since we have determined standard PIR based "Pet Proof" motion detectors are a load of Bollocks, let move forward to a tried, proven and under utilized technology.. The Floor Sensor. This detector is designed to be installed on the under part of a floor joist. Once covered with drywall, the security alarm floor sensor is invisible, except for its' ability to detect activity on the floor above.

The Pulsar Security Alarm Floor Sensor works by detecting micro flex changes in the floor joist itself. Once installed, the Security Alarm Pulsar Floor Sensor can be adjusted for varying levels of sensitivity. This way, the movements of small pet can be ignored, while a much heavier human will trigger the alarm. As with any technology, Pulsar Security Alarm Floor Sensors do have a few inherent weaknesses, however, these can easily be overcome with proper installation, testing and maintenance. For example, moving a couch over a floor sensor will pre-stress the floor and reduce the Pulsar Security Alarm Floor Sensors' ability to detect activity.

Although the Pulsar Floor Sensor is designed to be installed during the construction phase, a knowledgeable Security Alarm Installation technician should be able to install the Pulsar Security Alarm Floor Sensor in most pre-existing home situations.

In addition to Security, the Pulsar Floor Sensor can be used for many home automation / convenience features such as lighting control, shower automation and even  in place of a doorbell on the front porch.
