Upgrading Your Luxury Home with Biometric Security

One of the most popular features we offer at Fortified and Ballistic Security is biometric security authentication. In the past, we’ve offered fingerprint scanners, but now the vast majority of the biometric scanners we sell use facial recognition technology.  On the surface, it might seem like something special you could add to your luxury home — like something James Bond would have at his residence (and also maybe on the entrances to his hidden closets and his garage where he stores his Aston Martins, etc) — and you wouldn’t be wrong about that. Facial recognition technology is really fascinating. But it’s much more than a fancy feature you can add to your custom security door. It’s one of the most effective ways to keep your home, bedroom Sanctuary™ System, or office secure.  Here’s how we canRead more

Building a Safe Room vs. a Sanctuary

One of the most common inquiries we receive from potential clients is the feasibility of building a safe room in their house. We don’t mean to brag, but yes — of course we can. We can design anything you want. However, we’re not going to recommend a safe room (or a panic room) in your house. The reason we say this isn’t because we think you don’t need it. We’re not passing judgment on your security situation — especially when we don’t know all the details yet. Plenty of our clients legitimately need a safe place where they can go in the event of an emergency. Many of them have used their designated safe place during actual emergencies.  The issue we take with safe rooms or panic rooms is that — among other things — they’reRead more

Why We Don’t Use Dealers For Our Luxury Home Security Doors

People often ask us why we don’t sell our luxury home security doors and windows through third party dealers.  It’s a fair question, and because we get it so often from potential clients, we thought we’d take the time to discuss why this is the case.  We can get into the details, but a lot of the reason has to do with the fact that we sell a very unique product.  We don’t have a “lane” to stay in. We’re not a window company. We’re not a door company. We’re not a tech company. But we do sell all of those things.  The issue is that no one else makes what we do. No one else takes these components and uses them in the way we do. While there are other companies that make home securityRead more

How are Custom Security Doors Made?

Our clients have a lot of questions regarding how our custom security doors are made — specifically, they wonder why it takes so long.  We understand the frustration in needing to wait. Once you’ve designed your home security door, you don’t want to wait for weeks before it can be installed. While we’ve explained this to many people, we thought it would be best to get it all down in writing.  We’re extremely proud of our work, and of the artisans in Italy who hand-make our steel security doors. Their work is meticulous and very difficult, which means that they can’t rush it. And of course, perfection takes time.  Here’s how custom security doors are made, what steps of the process take the most time, and what you can expect from FBS. Step 1: Quote andRead more

Why Pivot Doors are Perfect for Luxury Homes

Our clientele is not your typical shopper. We’re not working with people trying to buy doors in bulk for their new upper-middle-class home. We’re working with people who are looking to create custom doors for their luxury home. They can afford to spend time and money creating something unique. Something one of a kind.  And for that, we (almost) always recommend pivot doors. We’ll explain more about why we love them so much, but the fact of the matter is that pivot doors elevate your design. They add an element of sophistication and (candidly) surprise to whatever opening you’re working with. No one expects a door to open from any other point than the very edge — it’s what we’re used to. So when they open from the middle, or part of the way into theRead more
