DSC Alarm & Security Systems

Home security and burglar alarm systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated and widely used. Advances in technology have made it more affordable to install a burglar alarm system in your home, and homeowners are taking advantage of the benefits that these systems offer -- from 24/7 monitoring of their homes to deterring theft attempts by intruders. This article will provide an overview of how an alarm system works, what types of components may be included, and the advantages that such a system can offer your family.



How Alarm Systems Home Security Burglar Alarm Works

Alarm systems work by detecting movement or sound inside your home. If any suspicious activity is detected, the systems will alert you or sound an alarm to warn off would-be burglars. Most residential alarm systems are designed to detect movement within a certain range (usually up to 30 feet). They use sensors such as motion sensors with infrared sensors. In addition, they can generally be set up with multiple pre-alarms that trigger before setting off the actual alert.



Types Of Components Used in Alarm Systems

The components involved in an alarm system vary based on the manufacturer and type of system you use. Most home security systems include sensor panels (including door/window contacts), sirens for audible alarms, controls for arming/disarming your system, keypads for easy access control, cameras for home surveillance, video doorbells for monitoring entryways, and wireless commercial-grade communication devices for 24/7 monitoring by a local station or central station monitored service provider.



Advantages Of An Alarm System

Alarm systems provide several key advantages when it comes to protecting your home against intruders: they inform you when an intruder has entered your property; they deter burglary attempts; they allow you to monitor your property even when you're away; and they also allow authorities to respond quickly if an emergency situation arises. Furthermore, most insurance companies offer discounted premiums on homeowners' policies if homeowners install approved burglar alarm systems into their homes — adding yet another layer of protection with minimal investment on the homeowner's part.
