Home is where we go to feel safe and secure. The outside world contains numerous stressors – street crime, noise, pollution, and just people, whether they are coworkers, neighbors, or family members, that we just do not want to deal with. Our home is where we can arrange things as we like them, where we can have a small corner of the world that is just ours. Our homes often reflect the world as we want it to be.
Most homeowners think of their domicile as though it was a bank vault. The security system is designed to make it hard for thieves to break into the home and steal the valuable goods. This isn’t exactly how these systems work nor is it how they should be used. A home system will not stop somebody from physically kicking in a door or busting in a window nor is it intended to. So, how does it work?
Law enforcement authorities tell us that six out of every 10 homes that is burglarized happened through unlocked doors or windows. I mean come on folks a little common sense here. And any police department will tell you that 90 percent of all home burglaries can be prevented. Burglars don’t like noise light or lengthy visits. If they can’t get in in two minutes or find what they want inside the house inside one minute they’ll go elsewhere.
A basic set up would consist of a series of door and window sensors, interior motion detector and a central control keypad panel. The control panel is usually hooked up to a monitoring service that can alert the authorities in the event of a break in. The monitoring service usually costs around .00- .00 per month depending on the type of system installed.
Opt for Solid Doors – It is far more important to utilize solid wood doors for all exterior doors. This makes it harder for burglars to break through as opposed to hollow-core doors. Save hallow-core doors for the interior of your home.
Laser home security system can be connected directly to emergency services, which will draw them to your house much more quickly than if you had to call them on a telephone.
There are two types of Home Security tool – open and closed circuit. Open circuit systems work by setting off an alarm when the circuit closes. When a door or window is opened, the circuit is broken setting off the alarm.
One home automation element that many may not think of when they list elements of home automation is a security system. This automation system is set up with motion sensors in such areas as windows or doors. An alarm sounds when there is movement and the alarm is set. There is an access code used by the home owner to set the alarm system. Once it is set or taken off line then it is not to be bothered with anymore. It is set to do the job. Having a set security system will prevent intruders from entering the home. If the alarm sounds a remote monitoring area will contact the correct authorities. Then there will be officers at the home quickly. This is also true if there is a fire. The monitoring station can notify the fire department to go to the house and get to work.
