Security is a global concern today due to insurgency, terrorism, social and political tension everywhere. Security is tradeoff, a balancing act between attacker and defender. Unfortunately, that balance is never static. Changes in technology affect both sides. Technology is critical to enhancing security. The recent technological revolution has provided unique opportunities in a number of different industries to improve products and services beyond what was previously thought possible.

They need to programme their systems, so that it can detect unusual activity or behavior. Without high tech cameras, sensors, detectors and alarms, businesses and homeowner would be unable to identify threats and respond appropriately. Technology continues to advance at a rapid rate and the wide range of high tech security products available to homeowners and business owners reflects this.
