In the past, it may have been necessary to deal with two different companies or at least two different accounts at a single company - one for your home and one for your office.
It wasn't so much a matter of needing different types of alarm systems as it was a matter of policy. Most security companies treated business security different than home security. By combining the two into a single plan, it simplifies things for the customer and it simplifies monitoring for the security outfit.
The basic security requirements are not really any different between a home and a business. The alarm system can be wired or wireless, monitored or stand-alone. These are decisions that you would make for either your home or your office, depending on your budget and your needs.
The difference between home and office systems lies mainly in the way the monitoring is handled. Both home and office systems offer central monitoring so the alarm company can alert you and the authorities in case of an alarm. Office systems are handled a little differently though.
Many businesses have security guards that keep track of things after hours - either hired by the business directly or supplied by the building management in rental offices. The alarm company can work with these security guards in case of an alarm, which is not something that is common in the case of home alarms.
Office alarms generally cover more than just break-ins too. They often include fire and smoke detection and the alarm company can alert the fire department in case of a fire.

One of the most important elements of home & office security is the benefit of remote surveillance. This has become common for homes and office buildings alike, which makes applying it to a home and office fairly simple. There are a variety of security services that will help a homeowner monitor their homes while they are away. This is normally accomplished with something as simple as a alarm system. One the alarm is triggered, the security system will notify the proper authorities and ensure that they are dispatched to the home and office. Another layer of security which is becoming more common is having the alert also send to the home & office owner's smart phone to let them know what is going on in real-time. While this happens, field images will be simultaneously sent to customers with an attach alarm message, which will allow for a more precise recognition of the area being threatened.
Another important element of security is protecting the most likely entrance points. For home & offices this is normally either a door or window. There are two common ways to make doors more secure. The first is displaying a camera over the doorway which is both a deterrent and monitoring tool. The second is adding a higher grade lock or electronic locking mechanism. With windows, having a shock sensor installed is common. Not only are they a visual deterrent, but they can also detect any unwanted intrusion.
Home & office security is not something to be taken lightly, however it takes a unique approach. When making a home and office safer it is important to consider both home safety and office safety techniques. This is because securing a home requires the tools and methods that serve both purposes without adding redundant layers or making a living at home difficult.
There are several key differences between security for home and office purposes which are important to understand. Home security tends to emphasize monitoring inside the home as a priority. This is because home security must not only protect the property from invasion, but also allow for the monitoring and caring of sick individuals, elderly residents, and young children who may be in the home.
On the other hand, office security systems tend to focus on monitoring and controlling the entrances and exits. This will allow for the tracking of workers comings and goings as well as determine where they are traveling within the office space itself.
The Eclo Security System provides a complete solution that covers all of the necessary security elements for home and office security. It accomplishes this through thorough monitoring utilizing tools such as entrance control systems, visitor management solutions, as visual monitoring technologies.

First aspect is thermal protection. The density of the material is a big factor in determining the amount of sunlight that it can block. When the material is thicker, it can block more heat that is generated by the sun. Typically, efficient fabric can reduce the sun's thermal heat up to 90%. Even the color plays an important role too. Aside from the aesthetic appeal, the color of the fabric will also help in avoiding glare that could be hurtful for the eyes.
Second aspect is UV protection. The level of protection against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays may vary too. Some have low grade which is only about 2 to 11. Those which have 30 UV protection are good enough. The higher the number gets, the better.
Third aspect is the tightness of weaving. This contributes to the durability of the shade fabric. Usually, this is determined by looking into the openness percentage. Lower percentage means that the weaving is tighter. The ones with 0% is the most durable of all. Yet, this also hinders air to pass through. If the location that you want to cover requires proper air ventilation, pick the ones with weaving that is not done so tightly. The ones with 25% are already considered as very open. This can be ideal for windows because it will provide sufficient shade without hindering the air from entering the room. Beyond 25%, your cloth may be not too durable anymore.
Fourth aspect is the motorization. Even if the window you need to cover is a big one or maybe you want to set up a shade for a huge area, you can still use shade fabric. You simply have to opt for the motorized shade solution to make it easy for you to put it up.
Nothing should stop you from using shade fabric when it comes to blocking the sun. With the modern technology that is incorporated in creating the cloth, you can surely find an affordable yet efficient shade solution for your home or office.

This increase in demand is significant as bottled water has also gained considerable share from the Carbonated Soft Drink (CSD) market. The CSD market share was also reduced as a result of the recent program to ban the sale of CSD products in school systems.
Private label drinking water is the fastest growing segment of the total bottled water industry.
o Why the Strong Demand for Bottled Water?
The continued growth in bottled water consumption is mainly comprised of four elements, which are as follows:
o Good taste and quality of the product
o Convenience of delivery
o Supplier customer service
o A product line offering that meets the needs of the customer
Country-wide, the bottled water industry has moved quickly to respond to the needs of the market and customers, which results in the increase in bottled water demand and consumption. This trend has also proved evident in the heavily populated area of Northern Virginia in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area.
o The Northern Virginia Market for Bottled Water
Northern Virginia population has grown dramatically in the last ten years largely due to the massive homeland security build up after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This huge influx of population stressed the existing water infrastructure for both tap and well water. Tap water, although tested against FDA standards, still contained a number of potentially hazardous minerals and chlorine additives to kill bacteria. Well water, subjected to chemical and organic pollution and not tested by any government agency, proved also to be undesirable and not beneficial to health.
A recent report by the Associated Press concluded that most municipal water supplies contain potentially dangerous levels of pharmaceutical drugs including sex hand steroids. Some municipal water supplies even fail to report on pharmaceutical levels and Fairfax County in Northern Virginia is among the non reporters.
