We’ll Help You Choose The Best Home Alarm System for Your Home
INTERIOR HOME SECURITY PROTECTION
This is the starting point for any home alarm system . Depending on your requirements it might be all you need. It involves the strategic placement of infra-red motion sensors in your home. When installed correctly, an intruder can be detected after taking no more than 3-5 steps in your home, no matter what entry point he used. Most homes can be adequately protected with 3 or 4 infra red sensors. Our alarm panels can handle at least 16 sensors so there’s plenty of room for expansion if you need to add more in the future.
HOME ALARM PERIMETER PROTECTION
The last thing you want is to be woken up by an intruder that’s broken in to your home! We recommend the use of shock sensors and door and widow sensors (called ‘reed switches’) to monitor all accessible openings and alert you (and the intruder) if a breech has occurred.These can simply be added to any of our home security system packages.
The reed switches are a two-part sensor. One part( the reed switch) is mounted on the door or window frame. The other part (the magnet) is mounted on the door or window. The two parts should line up when the door or window is closed. When the two parts are separated (by opening the door or window) the alarm is triggered.
The shock sensors are attached to the window or door frame or directly on the glass. They respond to the vibrations caused by a brute-force attack, such as smashing a window or kicking the middle out of a door. A reed switch wont respond to this sort of attack. Nor will a shock sensor respond to a window or door being opened. By using both types of sensors you stand an excellent chance of detecting an intruder before he even gets inside your home.
Standard perimeter protection is useful for detecting a break in at the other end of the house while you’re sleeping, if your bedroom is along way from your children’s bedrooms for example. Or for two storey homes where all the bedrooms are upstairs, the downstairs windows and doors can be monitored while you sleep.
Your home isn’t safe without a properly installed alarm system
