A security alarm protects various property objects from unauthorized entry. Such system can be used in all types of buildings including private houses and apartments, state buildings, commercial and military objects. Security alarm system ensures your personal safety and protection of your belongings against burglary. When installed in cars, these systems are used against car thefts and carjacking. Also, a security alarm is used in prisons and high security facilities.

These alarm systems can have either one function (e.g. burglary protection) or combine fire and intrusion detection. Intrusion alarm system often works together with closed-circuit television surveillance systems when the process of unauthorized entry is automatically recorded. Systems vary from compact audio alarms to sophisticated computerized systems that can cover a vast area.

No security system cannot be constructed without detailed security plan, or even a set of plans in some cases. ConceptDraw PRO software offers the Security and Access Plans Solution from the Building Plans Area to help you design the Security Plans for any premises and of any complexity.
