Home Automation Geo Location Services

Geo tracking allows residential and commercial customers new possibilities that goes above and beyond security and emergency services. The way that Geo Tracking works is that most smart phones have a GPS locator built into it, (such as your maps app. etc.), as long as you have your location services enabled, can tell where you are located. The nice thing about this is that you can set rules of what you would like to happen all based off of where you are located. For example, if you are at home, your thermostat can be set to the temperature that you prefer, and if you leave more than a half mile away from home, you can have the temperature start rising, saving you money on your electric bill, and as you approach home again the temperature will start dropping so it can be the perfect temperature for you to walk in to.




You can also set up rules to close down your house when you get to far away, if you get a mile away can do the following, close your garage door, make sure the doors are locked, turn off lights or turn them on, arm your system, change thermostat and so much more.

All of these possibilities are included with Titan Alarm services.

The Truth About Video Surveillance and Security Cameras


Here at Titan Alarm we receive a lot of calls from potential customers wanting to install a home video surveillance system and security cameras, and for a good reason too. When Titan Alarm helps you install your video surveillance systems they can be very helpful to help deter burglaries and theft.

Unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation out there about video surveillance and it’s role in security, many times this leads to expectations that are just unrealistic.

So let’s put the truth out there, if you’re starting to look into a home video surveillance system, then you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to show you what really matters and what doesn’t.


  • Cameras won’t do what you see on CSI (at least not in your price range) Police TV shows and Cop Dramas show glorified surveillance cameras and video surveillance systems. It’s pretty often in the shows for a police officer to zoom in on a blurry video, stroke the keyboard a few times and magically see a clear picture of a suspect’s face.Don’t misunderstand us, technology like this exists. But it’s far more expensive than what you would expect. (Even major police departments don’t have that kind of technology.)

  • Wireless Cameras aren’t exactly “no wires”Most people want wireless security systems and wireless video surveillance systems for their home because they think they’ll get out of having to run wires through the walls.Although the are for sure some easy-to-install wireless video cameras these is always one wire that no one thinks about, and it’s the power cable. It just wouldn’t be smart for a video surveillance camera to be running on a battery, they’d most likely have to be replaced daily, so even though there are wireless video surveillance cameras they still need to be plugged into power outlets.The “wireless” part means they transmit video signal wirelessly.

Now that we’ve gotten those two misconceptions out of the way let’s get into some things you should pay attention to when considering a Home Video Surveillance Camera System.

  • Type of CameraDon’t use a cheap webcam from a big box store like Walmart or Target, those are almost always designed for video chatting or other close up situations, they aren’t designed for a further view like you will need with surveillance camera systems. There are two main types of security cameras that we recommend for Home Security and that’s a dome camera and a bullet camera.

  • Image Types
    This all depends on where you’re planning on having your cameras installed, you will need to consider what type of image the camera you’re buying can produce. Here’s a few examples of the cameras.

    • Black & White – Video Surveillance Cameras change into Black & White at night, or when it’s dark, doing so let’s the cameras have a better, sharper, clearer picture in low light.
    • Infrared (IR) – Cameras with Infrared capabilities work even in settings when it’s dark or there’s low light. Luckily since IR is invisible to humans the cameras can be recording whats happening even when it looks like it’s completely dark.

Fire Alarm Systems for Business

When you start a new business you’re slammed with a massive list of things you have to take into consideration and make decisions on. So many of your decisions will be made for personal consideration and on a professional level as well. One of the most important items on that list is Fire Safety and a Fire System, even if you are located in a small office or retail store, there is always the possibility of a accidental fire. When you’re deciding on a location for your business, here’s a few things you need to take into consideration as far as fire safety and fire systems are concerned.

Fire Extinguishers

Every building and commercial business should have at least one portable fire extinguisher strategically located for every 75 feet of the business or location. The extinguishers you will need will be different depending on the classification you have of the occupancy of the business.


Occupancy Rating

Different standards, state codes, federal codes and services will be expected of your company and business based on the occupancy rating it receives. For example, a space that is being used as an office has a different occupancy standard than a space being used as a diner or cafe. This rating will determine the fire safety systems that is required for fire prevention.
