Home security is a top priority for many homeowners; this is why many choose to install security systems. These systems can range from simple alarms that detect intrusion to more complicated surveillance systems that include wireless security monitoring.
Depending on the type of home alarm system you install, you will enjoy greater degrees of protection in response. Keep in mind that any home alarm system is better than none at all, and each offer peace of mind to homeowners.
What Happens During an Intrusion
When a potential intruder enters or attempts to enter your home, a home alarm system will detect the intruder’s presence and immediately notify the authorities. These attempts can be detected through motion detectors and broken or completed circuits of surveillance. Motion detectors set inside your home can spot unauthorized visitors, while magnets at entry points like windows and doors keep the completed circuit unbroken when the system is active. When an entry point is opened while the home alarm system is armed, the circuit is broken and the alarm is triggered. In contrast, pressure sensors react to a circuit being completed when stepped on.
After detection, an audible alarm in your home alerts you and your neighbors of the intrusion and often causes the intruder to flee the scene. At this time, your alarm system also sends a signal to the monitoring service and alerts the authorities.
The Role of a Monitoring Service
Your Delco Alarm System monitoring service will verify that your home alarm system has been triggered; advanced systems can even tell which specific part of your home security has been breached.
Often, the security monitoring service will call your home to inform you that the authorities have been notified and check on your safety.
