How a Home Security Company Helps Keep Your Property and Family Safe
For over 50 years, people in Brunswick, GA have trusted Atlantic Security to protect their homes, loved ones, and belongings.

As you know, technology is advancing at an incredible rate. This includes security systems and their integration with other electronics in your home. To address this, we thought we’d answer some of the common questions we hear from our clients as they look to upgrade or install the latest home security.
What Is the Most Important Security System Feature?
In one study, over 90% of respondents said that professional monitoring or a security system that alerts first responders in the event of an emergency is the most important feature. Almost two out of three people considered professionally monitored systems safer than self-monitored ones.
When you think about it, receiving alerts that someone is at your gate or lurking on your lawn is extremely important, but alerting law enforcement is the key to protecting your home, assets, and loved ones. In an emergency, it’s the seconds that matter. Our security monitoring system is there for you 24/7, with trained professionals who can determine if a call to the police, fire department, or emergency medical services is warranted.
What Other Security Features Do People Consider Critical?
Over 80% of participants said remote access was important. They want to use their mobile device or laptop to check in on their home and family, no matter where they are. About 72% also wanted a system that integrated with other smart home features, such as lighting and thermostats.
Whether you’re heading to Jekyll Island or hopping on a plane that’s taking you halfway across the globe, you can relax knowing you have access to your system. You'll receive alerts when something unusual occurs and can look at the live video feed immediately. You’ll be relieved to know that we also receive these alerts. So, even when you’re in a secluded location or traveling, we’re there for you and your family.
Can I Install the Security System Myself?
There are several issues with DIY home security systems. A robust security system that integrates with other automated systems requires unique skill sets, ones that we've developed over several decades. Additionally, almost all DIY systems connect through your home Wi-Fi. We partner with brands that use dedicated connections. For example, Alarm.com uses a dedicated cellular connection, so your security system remains viable even when the internet is down or the power is out.
At Atlantic Security, we’ve installed over 25,000 security solutions in the greater North Florida and South Georgia region. As system integrators, our project managers and certified technicians design and install every aspect of your system, from structured wiring to audio/video, lighting, and automation, tying disparate technology together to create a seamless, easy-to-use system.
