May 15th 2021 the observance of the International Day of Families focuses on the impacts of new technologies on the well-being of families and follows-up on the theme of the 59th session of the Commission for Social Development (UN.ORG)
As the leading security and safety solutions provider in Kenya; Opticom has over the years incorporated technology in ensuring future-proof security solutions for homes.
Remaining safe is typically the number one priority for all families. Keeping family members safe largely involves keeping the home secure. There are a number of simple steps you and your family can take to make your home more secure in order to prevent incidences and discourage burglars from making an attempt to break in.
We always consider taking a proactive approach when offering security and safety solutions, this involves preventing any likely hood of an incidence. Prevention is the best way to ensuring the safety of your home thus guaranteeing peace of mind for you and your family members.
Smart home security systems:
CCTV can dramatically increase the security of your property and keep your family protected. CCTV helps keep watch over your home from both inside and outside, acting as an extra pair of eyes and ears to monitor your property. Security cameras can also act as a huge deterrent to criminals, especially when it comes to pre-planned crimes. This means that thieves are much less likely to target homes with visible CCTV cameras within the premises.
CCTV also helps to keep an eye on your children and/or pets when you’re not close to them.
Similarly; by incorporating our surveillance solution powered from our state-of-the-art control room; allow us to effectively and remotely monitor and respond to any incidents that may occur, 24/7/365. Our Remotely Monitored CCTV solutions act as an active deterrent, thus offering immediate action to be taken, which prevents or reduces damage or loss of property.
The traditional CCTV footage that isn’t remotely monitored can provide you with evidence after damage has been done, but a monitored system can help prevent it entirely.
It’s vital that entry points within your property are secured. By investing in access control systems you can restrict entrance to secure areas of your home, room, file cabinet, drawer, or other area containing sensitive or proprietary materials. Any space that has limited access to authorized personnel only, should have an access control system in place.
If you want quick response to unexpected events, you should consider a burglar alarm system that is monitored. With guaranteed 24-hour coverage, regardless of whether you’re present at home or not. Once a sensor is triggered, the signal is received at our Command Centre and you’re notified each time your alarm is triggered; we immediately contact you and in an event no one answers, we immediately contact fast responders like the police or security personnel to address the matter.
Our tracking solution enables you to monitor your assets for instance; vehicles and also loved ones in real time. This system is also used to discover the location of a vehicle, or an asset with the help of Global Positioning System and other navigation systems. Keeping a track of the exact location and status of your loved ones and assets is vital and also helps you track and recover any stolen asset.
Safety from Unexpected Hazards
Intruders are not the only threat to you, your family or your property, and this is why the best home security systems helps protect against unexpected environmental hazards and emergencies.
For instance; fire outbreaks, our smoke alarm systems and carbon monoxide detectors will swiftly help alert you in case of a smoke or fire incident within your property. Both detectors are centrally monitored and should an alarm go off, first responders will quickly be sent to your home to help deal with the situation and help ensure your safety. Thus you’re guaranteed total safety whether you’re present at home or not.
Integrated system – All the above solutions can be integrated together and monitored from our integrated command and control center and monitored by our seasoned virtual security guard 24/7/365. The key benefit of integrated systems is that everything works together for a more seamless experience.
