Choose What Type Of Security Is Best For Your Business 

Monitored alarms, non-monitored alarms. Security guards either part-time or

full-time. Surveillance systems and access control systems.  All these products and services need to be considered when choosing the type of security you want for your business. Whether you decide on video surveillance monitored by security personnel during business hours and an alarm system to protect your property at night, the important thing is to have a secure building, while maintaining protection for your employees and anyone who comes to your business. The choices are almost endless and fit every budget.  Before deciding on your security needs, you should:

  • Have a security consultation with a professional security company.
  • Talk to owners with other businesses in your area.
  • Local emergency peDescription: are another source of information and may even be able to tell you the average response time of monitored systems at your location.
  • The internet is a valuable resource and can provide almost anything you would want to know about the different systems and technologies available.

The more information you know, the better decision you will make on what type of security to have for your business.




Home Security Should Never Be Neglected


No matter how large or small your home is, security is not something you should neglect, period. A home security system is the best way to protect your family, home and belongings. True home security system is more than just an alarm system.  Being secure means also being aware of your neighborhood and where emergency services are located.


Some things you need to consider when making your home secure are:


Valuables- Most intruders will take small items, even though they are initially looking for pricier items such as electronics or cash. Take stock of what you own as far as jewelry or other valuables. That way, if your home is broken into, you will know what's missing.  

Timing- Is everybody leaving and returning at the same time each day? Do you leave and return all together or at separate times? Potential intruders spend weeks monitoring your movements, looking for the most opportune time to break into your home. If someone is at home all the time, or if you and your family have a less consistent schedule, you lower the risk of being broken into. 


Light it up- One of the single most effective ways to add security to your home is making sure your property is well lit.  Someone planning to do something illegal doesn't want the spotlight on them.  


Emergency plan- Have an emergency plan as well. Go over it with each member of your family. Include exit points in case of fire and what to do in case of an intruder. Review the plan at least two or three times a year.



TECH CORNER             


Description: Giant IBM Hits New High In Cognitive Computing
IBM is developing a cognitive computing program. The Sequoia Supercomputer, at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, recently performed the most powerful brain simulation ever. IBM and LLNL have built a computer that simulates 10 billion neurons and 100 trillion connections among them with unprecedented 2.084 billion neurosynaptic cores.

All designed to work like a human brain. IBM is careful to say it's not a realistic complete brain, but rather a "novel modular, scalable, non-von-Neumann, ultra-low power, cognitive computing architecture." It meets DARPA's metric of 100 trillion synapses, which is based on the number of synapses in the human brain and is part of the organization's cognitive computing program known as Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE).


To achieve this, IBM used the cognitive computing chips which were unveiled last year. Designed to recreate the phenomena between spiking neurons and synapses, more than 2 billion of these cores were divided into 77 brain-inspired regions, with gray matter and white matter connectivity.

According to team members, the gray matter came from modeling and the white networking matter comes from a detailed map of macaque brain connections. With a combined total of 530 billion neurons and 100 trillion synapses that ran over 1,500 thousand times slower than real time brain action but still blazingly fast for computer action, the ultimate goal is a computer system that works like a brain, analyzing information in real time from multiple sources.
