How does a home security system work?
A security system has three elements that work together to provide a layer of protection. The first element is the detection system. It is comprised of door and window sensors and motion detectors. This detection system communicates with the communication control system. It is monitored by a security company, like Security 1. When an alarm system is equipped with a video verification system, alerts can be assessed by security personnel, who then contact emergency personnel if necessary. Another important element is the alert system. It is comprised of the alarms and strobe lights. It’s most effective at deterring intruders and is triggered by the detection system. When these three elements work together, a home is at its most secure state.
Whilst at home, the alarm system can be set so that doors and windows are armed while you are sleeping. This provides an extra sense of security for you that your home and family are safe. Motion detectors located in the areas where there is foot traffic can be bypassed to allow you and your family to continue to walk normally throughout your living space although the alarm is set.
When leaving the house, the system can be reset to detect unexpected entrance from the doors and windows as well as motion sensed from the motion detectors. The alarm will be set to notify the security company in the event of an unexpected entry.
