Basic Principles of Alarm System Security

Are you in the market for a security system? If so, there are some basic principles of alarm system security you should probably be aware of. Understanding the basics will put you in a good position to determine what your requirements are, so that you get the best possible security within your budget.
Home Security Is a Deterrent
The first and most important principle of wireless home security is that it is intended to be deterrent so that authorities can reach your home fast enough should an incident occur. The point here is to have realistic expectations from and for a home security system for better protection. In order to deter a home invasion, you need the right tools.
There are three things burglars hate: noise, video cameras, and monitoring. All three things increase the chances of being caught and successfully prosecuted. Therefore, it makes sense that these are the three things you need. You need an alarm system that will make noise. You need 24-hour monitoring so that someone will be aware if a burglary happens. You need video surveillance to catch criminals in the act of burglarizing your home.
Burglars Prefer Easy Entry
Burglars looking to get into your home want to get in and out as easily as possible. Believe it or not, the front door of your home is probably the easiest point of entry. If not the front door, then first floor windows or a rear door or sliding glass window. These are the places to target in terms of sensors. Window and door sensors will make it apparent when one has been breached; motion sensors will be effective if someone does manage to get in.
Criminals Know What They Want
Even without alarm system security to worry about, criminals know what they want and where to find it. Almost every burglar will head to the master bedroom first. Criminals are looking for cash, jewelry, and small electronics that they can sell quickly. Even if you are planning to install wireless home security, don’t make it easy on criminals. Keep valuables out of the master bedroom. You’ll increase the chances that burglars will leave empty-handed or stick around longer to find what they want. The longer they stick around, the greater the chances they will be caught.
Criminals Are Brand Wise
Lastly, understand that criminals are brand-wise when it comes to wireless home security. You can shop online for fake placards meant to lead criminals into believing an alarm protects your house. But they can browse online just like you do. They know a fake placard when they see one because they are familiar with most major brands of security systems.
Rather than buying a fake placard, you’re better off investing in a quality alarm system from a brand-name company which will actually deter a burglar.
