2020 has seen a lot of drastic changes in everyone’s day to day lives. Some people have made the most out of these hard times, while unfortunately, others have been struggling to just get by. Whats even worse is more people have turned to committing crimes for a quick cash to make ends meet. Now more than ever it is imparative to protect your valuables and loved ones with an effective home security solution. There are a lot of choices when it comes to choosing a home security system so lets go over the types of home security systems.
1) Wired Alarm Home Security Systems
The Standard wired alarm security systems have been the crowd favorite options for some time now. This type of system has sensors, motion detectors and cameras all wired to a control panel.
If the system is triped, the alarm goes off. Then, if this system is monitored, the monitoring company attempts to get ahold of the home or business owner, followed by the local authorities.
2) Wireless Alarm Home Security Systems
The wireless alarm security system works very similarly to the wired home security systems. Only in this case, without all the wires and the addition of being able to seemlessly monitor and control your security system and wireless security cameras from your phone or tablet.
Just like the wired security systems, when a sensor is tripped, the alarm sounds. At this point an alert is sent to your phone or tablet and the monitoring company will attempt to contact you and emergency services.
3) Local Alarm Systems
the most basic of all the types of home security systems.
Unlike the wired and wireless alarm systems, the local alarm systems are not monitored.
You place the sensors (cameras and/or motion sensors) yourself on doors and windows. There is no central control panel for this system and the alarm sound actually comes right from the sensor itself or directly to your phone or tablet, much like the Arlo home security cameras.
4) Security Screens for Doors and Windows
Professionally installed, custom fitted, marine-grade security screens for doors and windows in your home or business stop criminals at the point of entry. No monitoring company needed means you get back the piece of mind that your loved ones and valuables are protected all without having to pay a monthly service fee. You can toss the old method of putting security bars on your windows out the door. These screens are an excelent complemt to any style home and are guaranteed to protect your home or business.
Which Home Security System Would you Choose?
Cameras and motion sensors are great for recording the unfortunate event of a breakin, but wouldn’t you rather stop a criminal in their tracks? Having a combination of cameras, motion sensors and security screens is the ultimate level of security you can have for your home or business, but this option may not be a fesable option for all of us. Much like healthcare, preventative actions are the best for keeping your loved ones and valuables safe so why not make the investment to keep criminals out of your home and business, protecting your loved ones and valuables for good.
