Why You Should Have a Home Security Alarm System?
Having a home security alarm system may decreases the chances of a burglary. Even if the alarm system does not keep a burglar from breaking in, it may cause the burglar to stay a shorter amount of time.
What Should a Home Security Alarm System Include?
Most systems rely on a combination of contacts placed on doors and windows, along with a motion detector strategically placed in the house by a professional technician. To receive the best protection, Titan recommends that all exterior entry points have contacts that sense when they are open or closed. In some cases, a glassbreak sensor would be a better choice for protection.
Motion detectors should not be used as the primary means of detection because they do not detect someone until they are already in the house. The primary means of detection would be door, window and glassbreak detectors. A motion detector is considered a secondary means of detection.
The basic elements of a standard home security system include:
Control panel: This is where the system wiring terminates, the backup battery is located and where it is connected to the phone lines if it is a monitored system.
Keypad: This is where the system is armed and disarmed.
Siren Inside motion detector: These sense changes in a room caused by human presence. Special motion detectors are available for people who have pets.
Door and window contacts: This sounds the alarm when the door or window is opened (and the system is on).
A central monitoring station (Company): If the system is monitored, and the alarm is set off, the control panel sends a message to a central monitoring station, which is manned 24 hours a day.
After attempting to contact the homeowner, the central monitoring station will contact the police, fire department, or medics. There is usually a monthly fee for this service.
Additional items that can be added to the basic system are:
Closed circuit TV to allow monitoring and/or recording inside or outside a home.
Water or Temperature Sensors
Things to Remember About Home Security Alarm Systems
Burglars realize most security systems sound inside the house and then the alarm is transferred to remote locations through the telephone lines. Most phone lines are typically exposed on the outside of the house in an easily accessible location where the phone line can be cut. If the telephone line is cut, the security alarm system cannot notify the central monitoring station of the break-in. If the phone line is run underground until it is inside the home (with the main telephone junction box inside the home), the thief cannot tamper with the telephone line until after he or she has broken in. Having a protected phone line to your house is a good idea whether you have a security alarm system or not.
Remember: Security systems do not prevent thieves from breaking into homes.
A good security plan should include strong window, door and lock products and good security habits.
Home Security Breach: The Facts About Home Invasion Robbery
It is a fact that crime in general has reduced significantly over the years, yet some forms of crime are steadily on the rise. This sounds a little strange at first but makes perfect sense when you look at the facts.
Some forms of crime are out and others are in. Since bank and convenient store robbery are much more difficult to pull off these days, burglars are now looking for easier places to break into: Your home. As a result, home invasion robbery is on the rise. Burglars see homes as easy opportunity break ins–unlocked windows and doors, residences without home security systems, homeowners being gone during the day. Home security systems with cutting edge technology have been developed and are increasing in popularity because of this, but many homeowners have still been reluctant to research and invest in alarm systems and other home security features.
Home invasion statistics were hard to come by 10 years ago as home invaders were and still are often charged with crimes of other titles like robbery, assault, homicide and so on, but never under the title home invasion. As law enforcement has taken more notice, they’ve reported that home invasion robbery has been on the rise since 1995 with no signs of pulling back. And that is why homeowners need to be educated about proper home security tactics and about the realities of home invasion robbery as new startling statistics are now available.
Here are just a few statistics regarding your home security and home invasions.
Physical injury is a common occurrence in home invasions. About 47% of homeowners who experience home invasion robbery are injured during the crime.
Older individuals make up a large number of home invasion victims. Nearly 17% of home invasion victims are aged 60 or older. A startling 21% of home invasion victims were casual acquaintances with the people who invaded their homes. Nearly half of all home invasion criminals used weapons while committing their crimes.
There are also many statistics proving the effectiveness of having home security systems in place, including the fact that homes with alarm systems are 3 times less likely to be burglarized.
To protect your family and home from this steadily increasing crime it might be time to start looking into safety planning and home security system options. When consulting with your local home security companies you can figure out which home security features are the best for you home and you can compare prices. Your families safety depends on it.
