Security systems vary greatly in price AND features. The most important thing to consider is your return on investment. A commercial security system is much different than one in the average home. Commercial systems are made to a different standard and are designed to last much longer. They know the difference between trees swaying in the wind and a person or car. Business camera systems can even notify a live guard over their radio if someone breaches the perimeter of your property without anyone even watching the system.
We've installed commercial security for the U.S. Coast Guard as well as a small chicken and biscuit shop in Hartford. Even though both systems were vastly different, they met all of the customers' needs and guaranteed a positive ROI.
Security systems include security cameras, access control, burglar alarms, and fire alarms.
Included among these systems is "low voltage structured cabling"
Life safety systems are another term used to describe security in regards to fire alarms.
One of the most popular security system solutions we install is cameras. Most companies want to know if an intruder managed to breach the property or if you have a false alarm. They also need convictable evidence for the police. Security cameras provide 24-hour surveillance and can provide proactive notifications before a burglar sets off the intrusion alarm to your building. More importantly, they protect the exterior of your building.
The most popular system installed in most buildings is a basic burglar alarm. These work to ensure you have an automatic police presence if your building has a break-in. Only cameras can truly protect the exterior of your building and can even notify you the same as a burglar alarm would.
It's tricky to determine which of the two are better because they work to achieve the same goal. More importantly, cameras and alarms complement each other, especially in a large property with tons of valuables.
Security cameras are excellent in allowing you to be at your building instantly 24/7. Your staff can monitor the cameras remotely or receive proactive alerts based on artificial intelligence rules.
Burglar alarms create a shock factor whenever an intruder breaches your property. It works as an instant deterrent but only protects the interior of your building.
What is the most effective security system for business? A properly designed hardwired high-definition camera system can cover a large area of your property reliably. Multiple sites can be connected back to the same software and be centrally managed. Protecting the interior of a building with an automatic police presence requires a burglar alarm.
Many businesses have multiple buildings on one property or light poles they need cameras on. We install commercial wireless solutions that reliably connect for a fraction of trenching or running an aerial wire between them.
Can you install your own security system? Yes, it's possible to install your own security system. However, there are A LOT of tricks to security systems from design to installation. Some alarm systems are completely wireless, however exact placement and programming are always best left to the professionals.
Wireless security cameras are popular for residential homes, but they are notoriously unreliable in commercial settings. They also require an unsightly power wire. Great for a temporary solution, but a huge letdown if you lose precious footage. We connect buildings wirelessly reliably using special commercial wireless equipment and hardwire all cameras back to these antennae.
Safety is an important aspect of any business. Especially with the post COVID world we live in today. Proactive alerts do the heavy lifting for your team and make footage retrieval much easier. It is easy for a property manager to spend 2 hours gathering footage from around a property. A system installation completed by Mammoth reduces that time spent to retrieve footage. Our equipment allows you to search camera footage to only show you people, cars, certain license plate numbers on a list or not on a list, or even facial recognition.
A CCTV system will let you see the important areas of your business, preventing instances of theft and property damage. Burglar alarms also complement a CCTV system by alerting you and your staff whenever someone breaches the building.
The cost depends on many different factors. Commercial security camera systems for a small business or residential home generally start around $3,500 and go up from there depending on installation difficulty. Burglar alarm systems start at around $2,000 installed.
Yes, you need a low-voltage electrician to install a security system. All wiring for security systems requires a licensed professional to run the wiring through walls in a building. Low-voltage electricians or security companies, in general, provide the added care required in running the security system wiring.
The company with the best security system comes down to your unique situation. Every business requires a custom security system design that meets their needs and provides a return on investment. This can be anything from a simple wireless alarm system to a fully integrated camera system that alerts your guard's radio every time someone breaches your property.

Business security systems offer more functionalities than the basic home system. Security devices designed for businesses have more features and are more reliable.
Fiber optics is an advanced technology designed to transfer information through small glass or plastic strands. Fiber-optic networks are faster than other data-transfer mediums and they are even more stable because of the durability of fiber cables.
Fiber is used to connect long distances over 300ft. We have technology that allows us to connect cameras 2,000+ feet away without fiber. The best practice is to run fiber for anything over about 325ft but budgets don't always allow for that. Usually, fiber optic networks are meant for large business locations and properties.
As long as the right equipment is used in the right situation. A wireless connection can have close to a full gigabit of speed which is the same as a hardwire. A commercial security solution uses advanced technology and provides a reliable connection. Learn more on our WIRELESS page.
Sometimes companies make something wireless to make it easier for a residential customer to install it themselves. We explain the issues with these systems on the wireless security cameras page.
Wired security solutions are the best practice. Wireless is relatively new and introduces MANY challenges that require technology to overcome them.
A reliable security company is fast, accountable, and always ready to help customers. With just one phone call, a security company representative must be able to answer inquiries right away. Additionally, the company must have a quick troubleshooting process for its installation projects and business security solutions. The company should have its own employees trained without subcontracting work. You deserve to be a name and not a number.
Our team of professionals is always ready to help you with security installation services for homeowners and business owners. We have an in-house technical team and you'll definitely get to know Christine throughout the course of your project.
Telecommunication is the process of exchanging information over large distances through electronic means like data transmission, voice, and video. The common devices linked to telecommunication are landlines, mobile phones, radio systems, and fiber-optic frameworks. The Internet is also considered an important part of the telecommunications industry.
Often included in telecom is voice and data wiring installation, access control, and anything security alarm or camera related. Anything that has a low voltage cable ran to it for phones, computers, etc. falls under telecommunications. Even alarm monitoring falls under this umbrella.
Telecommunications installation companies service security systems, life safety solutions, fiber optic wiring, voice, and data wiring, and anything else related to low voltage wiring. All of these telecommunication business services and equipment fall under the scope of the company.
A telecom contractor is a professional business entity responsible for installing telecommunication networks such as phone lines, fiber optic networks, satellite dish systems, and radio communication outposts. Most telecom contractors have an in-house team of professionals, but some companies also rely on outsourcing or subcontracting solutions and installation services. Telecom companies also provide installation of access control, life safety systems, etc.
A telecom company fulfills a client's order by installing telecommunication solutions and devices. Aside from that, a telecom company surveys the installation site to check for possible problems or hindrances. Most telecom companies have a large team of telecom installers, technicians, and agents ready to service clients.
Telecommunication services installation projects consist of the installation of low voltage wiring for voice, data, security, and life safety systems. Depending on the scale of the project, a large team of professionals is usually needed. Many security-related items fall under telecom such as alarms, access control, and cameras. Voice and data wiring are the most common telecom projects. Heavy equipment is also required for big projects that involve ground or site work like underground fiber optic cabling, trenching for backbone communication lines, and other projects connecting hubs together.
Yes, we're a prime contractor on any projects we design and install. We also actively subcontract under many of the largest General Contracting companies in the tri-state area. We also work with the A&E industry (Architects and Engineers) to design and spec projects based on a customer's needs.
