What Is a Home Security System and How Does it Work?

Almost all home security systems, including LifeShield’s, do pretty much the same things: they monitor your home for anything that seems “strange” or out of place. LifeShield’s system monitor your doors, windows, interior areas, porch, and air for anything that might pose a threat to your family. This includes intruders, fire, floods, carbon monoxide, and criminals.

Home security systems use different components to make your home safe. These systems typically include cameras, sensors, keypads, alarms, and mobile applications.

What is a Home Security System?

A home security system is a system that keeps your home safe. This system uses multiple components as well as monitoring to keep your home safe. The central purpose of a home security system is to keep your home safe from intruders, but some go above and beyond and help to protect against the elements as well.


A home security system typically includes:

  • A central control panel or “keypad”

  • Door and window sensors

  • Motion sensors

  • Security cameras (wired or wireless)

  • Alarm

  • Monitoring Support

  • Yard signs and/or window stickers

In addition, LifeShield’s systems also include fire, flood, and carbon monoxide monitoring.

How Does A Home Security System Work?

Home security systems secure all of the entry points into your home to start – including the doors and the windows. They then use motion sensors to monitor other areas. Everything focuses around the security cameras, which act as the eyes of the system if anything seems off. You can control each part of this system using the central control panel OR a mobile app that comes with all LifeShield products.


Generally, the system just stays quiet and works for you – monitoring your home and allowing to get a glimpse inside, wherever you are. However, it really gets to work when there is an intrusion or a problem, even though we all hope that never happens.

What Does a Home Security System Do in an Intrusion?

Security systems are programmed to fulfill specific tasks to monitor a home, and then they have other tasks to complete if it detects a problem. LifeShield’s systems are professionally monitored, which means our in-house team will immediately start assessing the situation. A trained security professional will attempt to communicate with you in your preferred method. He or she may also call in local emergency services if our systems detect a fire or carbon monoxide. LifeShield’s systems have four layers of protection, which means that we are able to respond and help in the case of an emergency even if you do not have power, your internet has been cut, or you can’t see inside your home.


Our team will work until we are sure that your family is safe and that local authorities have control of the situation. Since we do all of the monitoring on our own, we are able to ensure that all of our security experts know about our systems and know how to handle any emergency situation.
