Security System Installer

Vocational

A Security Systems Technician installs, maintains and repairs systems designed to protect people and property. In addition to home alarm systems, Security Technicians work with hand or fingerprint scanners, intelligent cameras, card access systems, and much more.

They work mostly with low-voltage 12 volt wiring, but sometimes also with 120 volt alternating current, standard telephone lines, even internet systems for communication. Security Technicians use many specialized tools for installing cables, programming systems, and testing communications.
