Security Plans

A security alarm protects various property objects from unauthorized entry. Such system can be used in all types of buildings including private houses and apartments, state buildings, commercial and military objects. Security alarm system ensures your personal safety and protection of your belongings against burglary. When installed in cars, these systems are used against car thefts and carjacking. Also, a security alarm is used in prisons and high security facilities.

These alarm systems can have either one function (e.g. burglary protection) or combine fire and intrusion detection. Intrusion alarm system often works together with closed-circuit television surveillance systems when the process of unauthorized entry is automatically recorded. Systems vary from compact audio alarms to sophisticated computerized systems that can cover a vast area.

No security system cannot be constructed without detailed security plan, or even a set of plans in some cases. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software offers the Security and Access Plans Solution from the Building Plans Area to help you design the Security Plans for any premises and of any complexity.

Security plans are very convenient way to explain what result you want to get. Security and Access Plans Solution provides 3 libraries:

  • Alarm and Access Control
  • Initiation and Annunciation
  • Video Surveillance

with wide variety of vector shapes to help you draw your security plans in minutes.

      Electrical Symbols — Switches and Relays →

      In electrical engineering, a switch is an electrical component that can break an electrical circuit, interrupting the current or diverting it from one conductor to another. The mechanism of a switch may be operated directly by a human operator to control a circuit (for example, a light switch or a keyboard button), may be operated by a moving object such as a door-operated switch, or may be operated by some sensing element for pressure, temperature or flow. A relay is a switch that is operated by electricity. Switches are made to handle a wide range of voltages and currents; very large switches may be used to isolate high-voltage circuits in electrical substations. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — Switches and Relays *
