Safety is of ever growing importance in our society. There are few homes or business spaces that have not been secured with electronic and other tools. Especially in the field of alarm systems there are more and more opportunities, with security equipment ranging from motion detectors to IP cameras that are online 24/7 and that can notify the owner of a property of burglary or other calamities via his smartphone.
In order to fully exploit the growing potential of intrusion alarm equipment, the reliability of the equipment is of the utmost importance. Worldwide there are numerous quality marks and certifications, describing the requirements that products must meet before they can be placed on local markets.
