A solution for peace of mind
House alarms provide us with a sanctuary from the world and afford us the peace of mind that we are safe and protected in our own homes. With all the noise and stress of everyday living who doesn’t need to have a place to go to unwind.
What are the basics?
A standard house alarm is, in general, a series of motion sensors linked to a central control unit. Often there will also be sets of magnetic contacts mounted onto doors in addition to the sensors. When the alarm is on and the door opens the magnetic contact is broken, setting off the alarm.
Motion sensors: The eyes and ears of your system
Even though door magnetic contacts are often used in security systems they are only one part of it. Motion sensors are used to detect any movement and heat within the area that they are covering and to sound the alarm if any activity is picked up. There are also s
specialised sensors available that will not confuse your pets with an intruder as well as sensors that are perfectly suited for outdoor use. These detect the intruder before they have even set foot in the household.
The brain of the system
The control panel is the brain of the whole system. High quality house alarms, such as the Texecom range of control panels, offer extensive flexibility and functions that can be programmed to suit a wide variety of homes and applications including office blocks.
In addition to the alarm being triggered by an intruder, a remote monitoring service can be alerted by the control panel that a person’s home security has been breeched. They in turn offer a rapid response service that will send a vehicle to your property to check on it. This is a huge deterrent to potential intruders.
In a world where break-ins are becoming frequent it is easy to see that a house alarm is a benefit to you and your loved ones. It will help to keep you safe and secure. Protect what matters most and invest in a quality house alarm.
Be safe. Protect those you love.
