There are many home security alarm systems available to the security minded, in a wide variety ranging from simple to sophisticated. These systems can protect the person or the person’s whole environment. They offer protection from outside intrusion, but also can be valuable for everyday living and help prevent genuine accidents.
It is informative to research the current field of home security, to realize that keys are becoming obsolete, and that electronics are more secure than padlocks. Security ranges from personal pepper spray guns to the monitoring of entire building complexes. Seasonal hunters and others in various fields, always have AK47 rifles handy. We have all seen or used the buzzer system in apartment houses, where we can communicate with apartments multiple stories above and ask to be let in. We know not to try to exit a store through the back door, which is unlocked for safety but armed with loud noises when an unauthorized exit is attempted.
These and other, more advanced alarms and screening tools are available for home use as well. Sensors inside can let you know if someone enters an open door or window – on a sunny day when you want to let the breezes in – or those outside can alert you if someone drives or walks in the driveway. These sensors can also let you remotely monitor the pool, for instance, to keep children or pets safe.
Entry gates can have code numbers, security cameras, and audio boxes to allow only approved access. Garage doors can be opened only be those with the code or by remote control on a key chain or in the dash of a car. They can be programmed to close automatically once the car has left.
Doors and windows can be protected by motion sensors, hardwired alarms, wireless devices, audio gadgets that react to the sound of breaking glass, and shock detectors that sense vibrations. Cameras can be hidden or visible for their deterrent effect. Motion detectors come with lights that switch on automatically to light entry areas.
Fire alarms have been around for years, but now the wise homeowner can have freeze detectors, that can alert people to the danger of extreme cold and they can protect their pipes before costly damage is done throughout the house. Alarms can sense leaks as well, and be programmed with numbers to call in the emergency.
Family security can give parents peace of mind, with video and audio nursery monitors, cameras that can show play rooms and outside play areas, and sensors that monitor every door and window, from the front to the patio sliding doors and the basement windows. Children can carry a ‘tracker’, so Mon and Dad know where they are. The elderly can wear a device with a panic button to press if they cannot get to the phone, or remote control of a speaker phone to call for help.
Ranging from a household safe with a combination lock or a password lock on the computer to a hand or fingerprint scanner on the front door lock, today’s systems are more effective and far ranging than ever. Outbuildings, boats, parked cars, and vacation homes can now be monitored and protected around the clock no matter where the owners are. Every person and every possession can be safer when they are surrounded by the measures available now.
