Luxury Home Security: Where to Find the Experts

When we founded Fortified & Ballistic Security all those years ago, it was because we saw a critical gap in the luxury home security market. We’d seen luxury home design and automation from multiple angles, but the security solutions the homeowners were using were far from adequate.  We’ve been doing this for so long — and are coming at it with such a unique background — that we’ve managed to become experts in luxury home security. And when we have our own knowledge gaps, we don’t fake it, and we don’t lie to you. Instead, we call in other experts so we can be sure you’re getting the best service possible.  Obviously, we’re a little biased, but we believe that we’ve managed to solve the security problem for luxury homeowners. Here’s how we did it, whyRead more

Biometrics and Security: How to Keep Your Home Completely Safe

Biometric security is an increasingly common topic among our clients. After many years on the market (and now, in our smartphones), facial recognition and fingerprint scans are becoming more mainstream. It suddenly doesn’t seem completely out of the question for us to have biometric screening on our doors.  And trust us — it’s entirely possible and incredibly luxurious. At FBS, we’ve been using biometrics with security for quite some time because it’s undoubtedly the most secure way of protecting your home from unauthorized visitors and potential intruders. Biometric security takes away many of the failure points of typical locks: there’s no key, no one can steal your passcode, and the lock can’t be tampered with. Here’s how we incorporate biometric screening with our high security doors to ensure your luxury home is completely safe.  What isRead more

How Home Automation and Security Can Work Together

Integrating our security management system into home automation is one of the most fascinating aspects of what we do at FBS. That might sound strange considering that we make custom security doors for affluent clients all around the world — that work in and of itself is interesting enough.  We’re a little biased, but we believe our security doors and windows are gorgeous. They’re hand-crafted by skilled artisans in Italy and are customizable to your unique style preferences and aesthetics. Each piece they make is a work of art specifically created for you. While the windows may resemble each other in their outward appearance, no one else in the world will have a door like the one they make for you. But the way we can integrate those elegant pieces of art into your home automationRead more

How to Make Your Smart Home Brilliant and Secure

Hello there! My name is David Vranicar and I’m the Managing Partner here at Fortified & Ballistic Security. I’m very proud to say I’ve been here since the very beginning — I’m one of the founders of the business.  I meet with almost all of our clients at some point or another, whether it’s at the beginning when they’re trying to decide if they want to hire us, or later on to look at the final product. I take a lot of pride in getting to know the people we work with and for the sake of transparency, I thought I should get down a few things about myself. I think it’s important to know who you’re working with.  Background: Home Automation Before I got into home security, I worked in home automation for many years.Read more

How to Make Home Security Invisible and Elegant

There’s no doubt that the most important aspect of any home security component is that it’s effective. Perhaps the second most important aspect is that it’s hidden.  People with traditional home security alarm systems often put that little sign out in front of the house to signal that the home has an alarm on it, which has varying degrees of success in diverting intruders. And perhaps if you’re a regular person who doesn’t live in the limelight, and petty thieves are the only people you’re worried about breaking into your home, that’s enough.  But if you live your life in the public eye, or you have other reasons to be concerned about your personal safety, that little sign may not be sufficient. If someone is specifically targeting you or someone in your family, that little signRead more
