Why a Home Alarm System can solve your security problems

A Home Alarm is designed to detect intruders into a building. There are several different types that can be installed. Double story homes really need to have a Home Alarm installed that will cover both stories as many burglars are pretty nimble and can scale a wall very easily.

Some Home Alarm systems may only detect burglar intrusion, while a combination alarm system would provide both intruder warning and fire in a home.

  • A Monitored Home Alarm system
  • An unmonitored system
  • A wireless system
  • Surveillance camera
  • A wired system
  • A motion Sensor

A Monitored Home Alarm system is one that has sensors connected to a control panel that is monitored by a security company or in some cases the police. When the sensors are tripped it will set off a loud alarm which will alert the security company.

The unmonitored Home Alarm will set off a loud siren if an intrusion has occurred. The noise of the siren will most likely deter the intruder.

A Wireless system is portable so if you move homes they can be taken with you. It has sensors position throughout the home which communicates through a control panel via radiofrequency.

A wired Home Alarm system has to have wires run throughout the property, which is connected to a control panel that will communicate to a security company or police via the telephone landline.

This system may be a better one for a new home being built rather than an established one as the needs to be holes drilled for the wires to be laid through the home.

A motion sensor may be an infrared beam or a vibration sensor that when tripped will set off an alarm.

Using cameras for surveillance

A Home Alarm may be secured by surveillance cameras connected to a computer or mobile phone. They have a series of cameras installed throughout the home and also outside. Many have night vision cameras also

The type of Home alarm that you choose will depend on the level of security that you want and feel comfortable with.

An unmonitored system is one mainly used in areas where the crime rate is lower. Many people choose to have a sensor install that will trigger off a siren as well as flashing light.

Anyone can install a Home Alarm system. They are available for the handyman homeowner to install himself or a professional will install all types of systems. The do-it-yourself systems are reasonably priced but it is important to purchase a quality one from a reputable supplier.

Whatever way you choose to go, installing a Home Alarm is recommended.
