Home Security Systems 101

  • Sensors- All home security systems use sensors of some kind, with motion sensors being the most widely used variety. Motion sensors will detect movement around your home, and they can be used to activate cameras, set off alarms, and more. In addition, most home security systems use sensors on the windows and doors to detect if they have been opened—if someone tries to get in through a window while you are asleep, the sensor will trigger an alarm to wake you.
  • Alarms- Speaking of alarms, they are another key component of home security systems. You need to know when your perimeter has been breached so that you can call the authorities for help. In addition to the alarms themselves, our team also offers alarm monitoring services, in which a team of people will keep an eye on your security system and alert emergency services for you as soon as it is triggered.
  • Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors- Not all components of a security system are designed to deter intruders—some of them are designed to detect natural threats such as smoke or carbon monoxide. Every home security system should include these detectors in order to protect you and your loved ones from house fires and the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.
