A home security system has many different components that need to work together to provide you with complete coverage, including: motion sensors, cameras, glass break detectors, door sensors, window sensors, yard signs/window stickers, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and more. The key is that all parts of your security system need to work together to keep your home and your family safe from whatever threats may come their way.
Whether you are purchasing a security system that has already been built for you or you want to build your own with the help of a security company, you need to determine whether you need each of the above parts to keep your home safe.
Motion Sensors: These are essential because they detect any movement in your home. There are a few different ways these can work. They can turn on lights (think outdoor spotlights), they can turn the cameras on, set off alarms, or just send you a notification that someone is there. For this reason, motion sensors are very important to your security system.
Cameras: Cameras are important because they allow for monitoring, and if need be, capturing information. Cameras can be used to record what happens in your home as well as monitoring what is happening – it depends what you need your security system to do.
Glass Break Detection: Glass break detection captures the sound of breaking glass and sets off an alarm. Older security systems used window sensors (more on that in a minute), but burglars got smart and just broke the window instead. Now, you can have a security system that can do both.
Door/Window Sensors: These sensors go on both the actual door or window and the frame. Then, when the door or window opens and the closed circuit is broken, the burglar alarm will go off and you will be alerted of the disturbance. You can arm or disarm these so that you won’t have to say that no one is breaking into your home on Halloween or Christmas day.
Yard/Window Signs: This is a simple step to take, but it can be extremely helpful. A yard or window sign points out that you have an alarm system, which might dissuade them from coming into your home at all. They will know that they cannot win and will move onto another home.
Smoke Detectors: Most of us have smoke detectors installed – and for good reason. With a home security system, you want a smoke detector that will also signal your cameras and send an alert into your home. If you are home, you will likely hear the alarm – but what if you aren’t there? Getting an alert and being able to look into your home is key.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors: The same thing happens here – you want a detector that will work in conjunction with your security system.
There are many other parts of a home security system that you might want to think about before purchasing or installing one in your home. Still, these are the most common parts that you definitely want to look into now.
