So, what is a modular security system?

A modular security system is a type of security system that is made up of individual modules that can be combined to create a customized security solution. This type of system is often used in commercial and industrial settings, where the specific security needs may vary from one location to another.

Modular security systems offer a number of advantages over traditional security systems. One advantage is that they are more flexible and scalable. This means that they can be easily adapted to meet the changing security needs of a business. Additionally, modular security systems are often easier to install and maintain than traditional security systems.

At B & L services we often design and install complex modular systems for our clients. These systems can be set up to rely on input from the various parts of the whole in order to offer a smooth operating system that can send reports or notifications to a monitoring service such as ADT or your dedicated security team at your premises.

Some of the sub-systems that can be included in a modular security system include:

  • Access control systems
  • Video surveillance (CCTV)
  • Alarm systems or Intrusion detection
  • Fire detection
  • Perimeter security (Electrified fences or visual programmable AI systems)

The specific components that are included in a modular security system with several sub-systems will vary depending on the specific needs of the business.

The practical applicaton of modular security systems in the commercial or industrial environment

  • Perimeter security systems: These systems use a variety of sensors to detect unauthorized intrusions. They can include motion sensors, video cameras, and perimeter fencing.
  • Access control systems: These systems control who has access to a facility. They can include card readers, keypads, and biometric scanners and intercom systems.
  • Video surveillance systems: These systems use cameras to monitor a facility. They can be used to detect and deter crime, and to investigate incidents and send alerts to a monitoring service or the accompanying app.
  • Alarm systems: These systems sound an alarm when an unauthorized intrusion is detected. They can also be used to notify security personnel or the police.
