There may be clouds and rain outside this week, but spring will be here before we know it and it will be time to start deciding what home improvement projects you’ll take on this year. Before that time comes, it would be wise to make some home security decisions as well. Like what? Consider the following.

Are Mobile Credentials Right for Your Campus?

College campuses have been some of the most ardent champions of access control. In 2021, most campuses have electronic access control installed in at least some of their buildings, including assembly halls, gyms, classrooms — and of course, dormitories and other student residence areas.

From Design to Deployment

As security integrators, it’s easy to get pigeonholed into the installation and deployment phase of our services. The truth is, our expertise begins even before the design phase of your equipment. Here are the steps we take as we prepare to integrate your security system, from design to deployment. 

Fighting Auto Theft with Video Surveillance

Auto theft is a crime that continues to be on the rise throughout the country, including in Delaware. Video surveillance is a tool we offer businesses interested in doing their part to combat this crime. By adding new or upgraded cameras to your commercial property, stakeholders can meet their obligations to give customers a safer place to shop, dine or conduct other business on the property. At Security Instrument, our video surveillance solutions are designed to tackle crimes like auto theft head on.  

Security Flexibility Through Your System’s Keypad

The solutions are much more flexible now, thanks to an easy-to-use graphic touchscreen keypad. Delaware business security customers of Security Instrument can use their simple arming options menu on the keypad panel to choose which sections of the property need protection, at whatever times they choose.
