Home Security System Installation
NorthStar Security is unique in the sense that we install many different brands and styles of home security systems to fit every customer's needs, lifestyles and budgets. All of our security systems include the latest technology with updated false-alarm reduction features and easy to use keypads. They can be integrated into any home regardless of construction type or size. We never forget what a home security system is intended to do, protect your home's contents and, most importantly, your family's personal safety.
When you contact NorthStar Security, (770) 216-1997, you will be directed to one of our Residential Security Consultants. We do not believe in a sales force trained in high pressure sales. You can rest assured that the sales consultant that comes to your home for an evaluation is trained to assess your property correctly so that there are no surprises upon installation. This alleviates the need to create "package deals" that are easy to sell. We pride ourselves in custom fitting every home security system to your needs. Our technicians will also make sure to keep the aesthetics of your home in mind when installing your home security system. Since we offer so many different systems, we have the ability to please even the most discriminating customer.

A security system starts with a control panel. Usually located in a closet or a basement, the control panel contains the "brains" of the security system, and essentially operates as a central computer. Various sensors connect to the control panel from locations throughout your home. If your security system is armed and the sensors detect a problem, they send signals to the control panel. The control panel automatically dials our central monitoring station where the proper authorities are notified.
You operate your security system by entering your security code at the keypad. Generally located at entry doors, keypads can arm and disarm with push-button ease. All of our keypads include illuminated keys to provide you with greater visibility at nighttime, easy-to-read English displays that spell out your system’s status at a glance, and one-touch function keys that provide single-button operation for arming, disarming or emergencies. Most of our keypads even offer convenient additional user codes to give friends, neighbors or service people access to your home.
Magnetic contacts are two-part devices used to safeguard windows and doors. One part of the contact is a switch installed in the window or door jam; the other contains a magnet and is placed in the window or door itself. Any noticeable shift in contact with the switch results in an alarm.
A passive infrared motion detector (PIR) is an electronic security device that detects intruders by "sensing" motion or body heat in the area being protected. Most PIRs are designed to be used when your family is away from home or when no one will be passing through the area "covered" by the PIR.
Glassbreak sensors, usually mounted on ceilings or walls, work by "listening" for the sound of breaking glass in a window. "Shock" glassbreak detectors are mounted on the window and "feel" the shock of breaking glass. This kind of advanced wireless technology can provide shatter and shock protection for your windows, for often intruders are "sensed" and an alarm sounded while they are still outdoors. This is often enough to send a burglar running!
A smoke detector connected to your security system offers more protection because it is monitored by our central station. If fire strikes, the detector sets off an alarm and sends a signal to the control panel. The control panel dials our central station, where the operator notifies the fire department. Only central station monitored smoke detectors provide automatic notification of authorities when you or your family are asleep, not at home or unable to get to the phone.
Wireless Key chain! Similar in size to a remote car alarm key, they fit right on your key chain, and the press of a single button lets you control your system eliminating the need for codes.
