There are 10’s of thousands of websites out there, that go into so much detail about security….camera option, lens types, IP vs analogue, alarm devices, hard-wired vs wireless, smoke sensor vs heat sensor, that by the time you are done, you feel so overwhelmed and confused, you don’t know which end is up. The options are endless!

The bottom line is this….if you are hiring a Security Integrator, tell them WHY you want security and WHAT you want it to do. Make sure it’s a company you can trust and then sit back and let them do the work for you. Any reputable company will take the guesswork out of it for you and design a system that will meet your needs and your budget.

Video Surveillance Systems


We know it can be overwhelming to try to decide what system is best suited to your needs. Do you want to watch live video? Will you need recordings of the footage? Will you record to a local source or to ‘the cloud’? What type of cameras do you need? Let Design Smart Security take the confusion out of it. Whether you just want to be able to watch the footage live or record the footage and store it, we can design a system suited to your needs and your budget.


  • Local/on site recording is the most reliable and effective method. It has no monthly fees, doesn’t need the internet and has greater storage capacity.
  • sing an SD card to record directly to the camera is convenient but be sure that the camera itself is out of reach, because if it is stolen, so is the footage!
  • Recording to ‘the cloud’ requires high-speed internet, especially a high upload speed and can typically host 1-3 cameras.

Access Control

  • Access control systems serve a critical role in any sensitive area, allowing only the right persons to enter at a given time. Multiple configurations cater to various budgets and needs, ranging from the simplest card reader to the now commonly used fingerprint terminals, to the algorithm-enabled facial recognition terminal. Hikvision’s many devices – such as controllers, card readers, turnstiles, and door locks – offer you a complete and secure access control system.
  • As customer requirements grow more complex, a single solution can no longer fulfill every need. That’s why you can combine access control systems’ various authentication methods, such as ID cards, fingerprints, passwords, facial images, and QR codes, just to name a few.
  • On top of basic functions, Hikvision’s hardware extends to advanced access management through anti-passback, combined authentications, interlocking, and more. And the professional management software makes device registration, management, and personnel registration much easier.

Alarm System

DSC Neo Systems offer four choices for control panels ranging in capacity from 16 to 128 zones and cater to a range of security system installations, from card access integration to the most demanding partitioning requirements.
Keypads range from a basic model, RF for compatibility with WL devices, a touchscreen and those with proximity tag functionality. 
Basic devices include door contacts, motion sensors, glass break sensors and wireless keys, to enable the user to disarm remotely. Environmental devices like flood and low temp sensors, allow for peace of mind and life-safety devices such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors help to ensure everyone’s safety.

Your system sends signals to the monitoring station using your business landline or for added security, a cellular communicator is used. Partnering with Alarm.com, we then add Interactive Services, for state-of-the-art protection & functionality. When an alarm is triggered, the signal is quickly routed through to the monitoring station, then handled quickly and efficiently. 



Intercom Systems

Including an intercom, as one of your integration levels, is the easiest way to secure the primary entrance of a building. Not only will you have both visual and audio communication, but some intercom systems also allow for communication between areas within the building.

By Implementing an Intercom System, you

  • Provide an extra layer of security for both people and property
  • Allow for a streamlined process for couriers and deliveries
  • Enable communication with those outside the building 
  • Allow for communication between the building occupants themselves
