Products and Services
Break-ins happen every day, whether it be a retail store, office, home, warehouse or factory. A burglar alarm makes sense for any location, no matter what the size. For as little as $1.50 per day, an alarm acts like an electronic guardian. If there's a break-in, sirens sound, authorities are dispatched, customers called, and armed guards can be sent.
From 1 to 100 cameras, American installs a high quality system using color digital cameras, tied into a state-of-the-art digital video recorder. No more VCRs with tapes. Storage can be a month or longer, with almost instantaneous retrieval. Images can be viewed on your network, or remotely from home.
We provide a wide variety of access control solutions from proximity, biometric, fingerprint, to all-in-one smart-card readers. Systems can range from 1 to 65,000 users, and 1 to 1,000 doors.
