Home Protection

What is a good system to keep burglars away from my house?

A good first line of defense is setting up a perimeter of motion sensors around the outside of your home. Outdoor motion activated alarms near the front and back entrys are the number one defense. Our HA-System is an inexpensive and expandable motion sensor with indoor alarm home alarm system. Put the wireless motion sensors in place, inside or outside, where you want them and set the receiver / alarm inside your home on a table, desktop or shelf. You are now protected from anyone sneaking up on you with out you knowing it.

A Siren or loud alarm that can be heard outside is a strong deterent. The intruder will hear it and flee the area and neighbors will hear it and call the cops. The inexpensive home security ideas presented here are easy to use and you can expand your security system as your time and budget fits. 

Interviews with convicted burglars have revealed that they are most scared off by lights at night and by loud noise such as alarm systems have. They all agree the one thing they want to avoid is confrontation.

What can I use to protect my doors and windows?

These Glass breakage alarms and vibration sensors on doors and windows are wireless alarms and will alert you to entry through these areas. Just place the sensors on the door or window sill and the alarm will sound if opened. Glass breakage sensors can alert you if a widow is smashed even if the window or door sensor is still in place. Most of our components and systems can be set up in minutes without tools other than maybe a screwdriver to mount some sensors.

Which is better, wired or wireless surveillance systems?

We have Video surveillance and recording systems that require running coax cable from each of your cameras to the DVR that will record any intruders and can be viewed over an internet connection. Most wired home surveillance systems have much better video quality than wireless systems. With the video signal enclosed inside a coaxial cable it is better protected against interference. Wireless Video Surveillance Systems are more prone to interferance from other electronic sources such as computers, cellular phones, TVs, and power lines. The result is fuzzy pictures and interupted connections to your home WiFi network. Cameras connected by coaxial cables can't be hacked either unlike wireless.
