In a 2009 study conducted by Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice, it has been established that home security systems are great tools against crime. If your home is armed with one, it’s 60% less likely to fall victim to burglars.
Generally, you’ll need a system that can protect all entry and exit points in your home. The number of devices required will depend upon how big or small your home is.
There are security systems that require phone lines to communicate with the monitoring station. However, as wire tripping and cutting are fairly common today, you’ll want to get a system that is safe from these security weaknesses.
Security systems that depend on wireless or cellular technology are good options. Not only do they eliminate the fear of getting your lines cut, but they also do not require you to drill holes through your walls or your floor.
What should include in home security system?
1. Intruder alarm system:
Control Panel: The control panel is the brain of your security system. It communicates to the monitoring station all signals relayed by your sensors such as detected motions and breach in your alarm.
Door and Window Sensors: Most door and window sensors today are two-part devices. You need to install one part on the frame and the other one on your door or window.When connected to each other, these sensors will signal that your home is secured. Any gap between them, when your security system is armed, will trigger an alarm.
Motion Sensors: Motion sensors are critical in monitoring your home. They create an invisible protection zone that, when interrupted, will trigger an alarm.
Surveillance cameras are essential to a security system for several reasons. One of its benefits includes remote monitoring. This allows you to see what goes on at home even if you’re hundred miles away. Most systems require a compatible smartphone or a computer to access this feature. A security camera can also store visual evidences. In case someone attempts to rob your home while you’re out, the recordings on your camera can help local authorities find the culprit.
How do I choose an alarm system?
The best security system should be able to secure your home completely. To knowing the right fit, there are a lot of things you need to consider.
In choosing an alarm system, you have to know exactly why you need a security system in the first place. If you want to make sure your home is protected all the time, then you most probably need to consider getting a monitored alarm system. If you want to keep an eye at home even if you’re away, you’ll want to get a system that features remote monitoring.
If you are renting an apartment, choosing a type of system with you in case you need to transfer to another location. If your home is already pre-wired, you can consider getting a system that’s professionally installed and can be hardwired.
What kinds of home security cameras are available?
Modern indoor/outdoor video surveillance for home security is full color, full motion and high resolution. The best security cameras have night vision and quickly adapt to changes in lighting. Some allow remote monitoring and control via a mobile device or desktop computer.
The main difference between indoor and outdoor security cameras is the construction quality; it varies because outdoor cameras need to withstand harsher conditions. Some outdoor security cameras are enhanced with heaters and fans to help protect against the elements. Outdoor cameras also need to be more durable because they’re particularly vulnerable to attempted disabling by criminals. Some are housed in especially tamper-proof casings.
When choosing video surveillance you can choose between fixed and moving cameras. In some cases a fixed camera makes the most sense. When a moving camera is best, dome cameras are recommended because they make it more difficult to evade view. A dome camera can cover 360 degrees but makes it impossible for onlookers to know where the lens is pointed.
