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.

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.
