Connectivity Point designs and installs alarm systems for: Intrusion/burglary monitoring, hold-up/duress signal monitoring, critical condition monitoring and elevator/place of refuge emergency phone monitoring.
Connectivity Point’s alarm and systems are easy-to-use and can be customized to best serve your company or property’s security and monitoring needs. We can monitor the entire building or specific areas of interest, setting it up so that you have remote access via an easy-to-use system. Texts or emails can be sent to specific users based on alarm or use criteria that you determine, guided by advice and input from our team of professionals.
Whether you need just a burglar alarm for a small property, or a combination of alarms and monitoring systems for large commercial complexes, Connectivity Point can design and install the right system to keep your property and people safe.

Perimeter protection monitors the outside of a building for breaches, using an open-circuit or closed-circuit. A closed-circuit is the most common. A break in the circuit (i.e., a door or window being opened or broken) will trigger the system and set off an alarm. In an open-circuit system, a door or window that is opened or broken completes the circuit and trips the alarm.
Door and window sensors are a critical piece of the system. Sensors installed or embedded in a door for window frame align with a switch in the door/window. When the sensor and the switch are aligned, the circuit is closed. When the door/window is opened, the circuit is broken and this triggers the alarm.
Another type of door window sensor is a small button in the door/window frame that is pushed in when the door/window is closed. If the door/window is opened, the button is released and triggers the alarm.
Glass break detectors monitor sound levels and will trigger the system if a sound is above a certain frequency.
Motion sensors monitor activity on the inside of a building. These sensors work in a variety of ways: microwave energy sensors detect motion by looking for disruptions in the pattern of the waves the system puts out; photo sensors emit a beam of light and trigger an alarm when the beam is broken; passive infrared (PIR) sensors detect temperature changes within a space, like when a person enters an empty room.
Connectivity Point’s commercial business alarm systems can monitor an entire building or specific areas. Our systems provide easy log-in accessibility for remote access, so you can have eyes on your property even when you’re not on site. Our systems include:
- Intrusion/burglary monitoring
- Hold-up-duress signal monitoring
- Critical condition monitoring
- Elevator and place of refuge emergency phone monitoring
An intrusion detection systems consists of a network of motion detectors and door/window sensors tied in to a control panel. If the system detects a breach, the control panel will either sound an audible alarm or alert the security company, building owner, or authorities-depending on the system configuration.
The control panel is accessible through an integrated touchpad or screen, where the system can be alarmed or disabled.
Intrusion detection systems can be hardwired or wireless. In a hardwired environment, the system communicates through the wiring tying all components and the control panel together. In a wireless system, components and the control panel communicate via radio frequency. The control panel communicates with outside contacts (security system, building owner, authorities) via WiFi, Bluetooth, or a cellular signal.
