Invest In A Home Alarm for Personal Security

By David Johnson

Home security systems are becoming more common for the average home owner and renters. In recent years there have been a flood of do it yourself security systems that can be wired or wireless and can be set up to trigger an audio alarm when an intruder is breaking in or in sensed moving about the home.

There are two main types of home intrusion systems including open and closed circuit. Open circuit home security system the alarm is triggered when the circuit is closed, then a door or window is opened it complete the circuit system it triggers the alarm. A closed circuit alarm system works in a different way, when a door or window is opened it breaks the circuit and triggers an alarm.

You can also invest in motion sensors which are more sophisticated. When they are installed they are able to sense motion within a specified field around the position. When a motion is detected by the sensor a signal is then sent to the control panel who closely analyzes it to determine whether it is enough movement to be suspicious about, or if it was simply the family cat or rabbit who got loose from its cage.

The sensors can be adjusted to differentiate things like pets walking around the residence. It is best to go with a company that offers both magnetic switches as well as motion sensors that work together efficiently in an alarm system. Strategically placed switches placed around the home near windows and doors make it easier to protect areas such as large halls and rooms.

It is becoming more common for homeowners to invest in home surveillance cameras that are sent to a digital recorder. You can mount these cameras strategically around your home for added protection if you hire out a cleaning service or baby sitter. You can also use these cameras to protect expensive cars and tools outside the home, or as a front door view from upstairs. You no longer have to answer the door to unwanted solicitors.

Home security systems provide continuous monitoring against intrusion, fire, smoke, medical attention, and even carbon monoxide. If a certain sensor is switched then the security company will immediately verify the emergency and contact the correct response agency such as the fire department, police, or paramedics.

The four most common types of home security systems are a single premise alarm system, local alarm system, telephone dialer alarm, and a monitored security alarm. A single premise alarm system is made to protect you with door alarms that warn you when a door has been opened, carbon monoxide alarms, and heat and smoke detectors.

With a local alarm system you will have a loud alarm signal an event of intrusion or fire but will not be monitored by an outside company. It is up to you to call the police or local fire department, which ever you need to assist you.

A telephone dialer alarm will dial a specified number if an alarm is tripped. They can also dial several numbers and usually play a recorded message regarding your assistance. The most effective type of home security is a monitored security system. This is obvious because they provide constant protection and monitoring of your residence.
