3 Ways to Deter Unwanted Visitors From Your Property

Improved Security / Jul 17, 2023

Ensuring the security of your home is paramount and New Zealand homeowners have several effective tools at their disposal to deter unwanted visitors. The three most powerful security measures can help protect your property and provide peace of mind. We explain how.

Residential Security Alarms

Installing a residential security alarm is one of the most effective ways to deter potential intruders. These systems consist of sensors strategically placed throughout your home; including doors, windows, and other vulnerable entry points. When an unauthorised entry or suspicious activity is detected, the alarm is triggered, alerting both you and your security monitoring service. The blaring sound alone often serves as a powerful deterrent, scaring away intruders and attracting attention from neighbours or passersby. Modern security alarm systems from ISS can be integrated with other smart home technologies, such as motion sensors, surveillance cameras and mobile apps. This allows you to monitor and control your security system remotely, enhancing your home’s overall security and providing real-time alerts in case of any potential threats.

Wireless Intercom Systems

Intercom systems offer an additional layer of security by enabling direct communication with visitors at your doorstep without having to physically open the door. By using an intercom system, you can verify the identity of individuals before granting them access to your property. This is particularly useful for preventing unwanted solicitors or potential intruders from gaining entry. Our intercom systems can be equipped with audio-only or video capabilities, allowing you to see and speak to visitors before deciding whether to permit access. Remote access is also available, enabling you to answer the intercom from your smartphone or any internet-connected device, even when you are not at home. 

CCTV Systems

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems are highly effective in deterring unwanted visitors and capturing evidence in the event of a security breach. CCTV systems of ours consist of strategically placed cameras that continuously monitor and record activity around your property. The visible presence of CCTV cameras acts as a deterrent, dissuading potential intruders from targeting your home. CCTV systems can be set up to provide 24/7 surveillance, capturing high-quality footage that can be used for identification and investigation purposes. Additionally, they offer live feeds or the ability to access recorded footage from your device. This enhances your ability to monitor your property and provides valuable evidence.

Securing your home against unwanted visitors is of utmost importance. By implementing residential security alarms, intercom systems and CCTV from ISS, you can significantly enhance your home’s security and deter potential intruders. Find out more by contacting us today.
