We would all like to think of our sacred places of worship as safe havens, free of the potential for wrong-doing. Unfortunately, however, you can never be too careful. Churches are often big targets for robberies, as criminals seek out collection money and the large number of highly valuable items often housed in churches. They also take advantage of the fact that churches leave their doors open throughout most of the day. If you don’t have surveillance systems or alarm systems installed, then there’s a chance that you could be inviting trouble into your place of worship.
Fortunately, Leading Edge Security Home Technology specializes in installing door entry systems, CCTV systems and intercom systems in churches throughout Bedford and Bloomington, IN to keep the congregation and possessions of the church safe.
CCTV Security Systems
People are drawn to churches in times of need, so it’s common to see people walking around the grounds at odd hours. However, it’s important to recognize the difference between a parishioner in need and someone who is looking to take advantage of such an open target. By contacting us to have a CCTV security system installed around the exterior of church and inside the hall, your cameras will be able to capture and record suspicious activity the minute it occurs so can contact the police immediately and use the footage captured to identify the culprit. CCTV security systems produce HD visuals and are capable of being monitored from anywhere.
Door Security Access & Intercom Systems for Churches
Thankfully, more and more churches throughout Bloomington and Bedford, IN are starting to recognize their open-door policy comes with major security risks. While it’s understandable that the church hall should remain open throughout the day, the church rectory is often a separate office that houses the cash box and expensive equipment. Because of this, church rectories should require visitors to buzz in through intercom systems or smart key solutions.
With the door locked at all times, the office manager can maintain complete control over who accesses the building. Staff members and church volunteers can be given key cards or a personalized code to enter the office. On the other hand, the general public can push the intercom system button to identify themselves by speech, or a video intercom system can give visual confirmation of who is requesting access.
Regardless of whether you are just starting to realize the necessity of a quality security system for your church or if your existing system requires repairs or upgrades, we can help. Give Leading Edge Security Home Technology a call at 812-325-6286 today to learn more.
