Common Low Voltage Electrical Services
At East-West Electric, our electricians are available to quickly resolve any electrical emergency or low-voltage problem. Whenever there is an emergency, we will send our team of expert technicians to efficiently and promptly resolve the problem. Here are the most common low-voltage electrical services offered by electricians.
Voice, Data & Fiber Optic
A well-designed mass communication or security system needs the right configuration and wiring to ensure the system works properly. Data and voice systems protect properties from damage or loss during emergencies by communicating essential information, instructions, and data to those who need it. They can also protect visitors and employees on-site. It is important to install these technologies up to standards, otherwise, the system invites risk to all.
Monitoring and Paging of Fire Alarm and Security
Fire alarm systems are one of the most important and essential protection systems a business or home can have. The best fire alarms can monitor any changes in the environment and detect incidents or threats before they get dangerous. Fire alarms work optimally when they can send both visible and audible signals to the emergency services and occupants.
Sound Masking Systems
Sound masking systems replace noise distractions that can be common – such as a construction site or barking dogs – with a temperate, overlapping white noise. It simulates the sound of an HVAC system. In a work environment, it can get noisy, which makes the sound masking system perfect for creating a comfortable and calming environment for the employees.
Network Wiring and Data Cabling
Data cabling is the main component of a networked system. The quality of the cabling installation and design determines the general performance of every network or data system in any environment. Any other poor design ends up costing more in the long term.
Commercial Security, CCTV, and Building Access Systems
Video surveillance is a must when it comes to everyday security at exits and entrances of most commercial buildings and manufacturing sites. An expert low voltage electrical contractor should be able to work with different vendors to offer you a wide variety of CCTV and access control systems. Whether your business needs single or multiple door card access, multiple or single cameras, local or remote viewing, an electrical contractor can help you.
