Question: What is the difference between a monitored and a non-monitored home security system?

Answer: You own a non-monitored system.This usually means that your smartphone is connected to your security system so you get notifications when a motion detector is triggered or a door is opened. While a central monitoring station monitors your home for you. There is normally a monthly fee and at least a one year contract required.

Home Security Devices Come In A Wide Variety Of Sensors.

Low cost alarms for your home can be as effective as more expensive systems without sending you to the poor house. Ask any expert in the field and they will tell you that 90% of all burglaries are preventable. So if the odds are so good that it will happen to you and it is such a preventable event-what is it you have to do to stop the burglars?

You can spend thousands of dollars to get an elaborate security system or sometimes the best home security is implemented when you are the one making the assessment and using common sense and some simple devices. Here are some simple, easy to use, inexpensive and effective home protection products that will definitely discourage or flat out stop a potential intruder from entering your house. It is not a complete list but one which will go a long way to stopping the bad guys from getting into your home.

360 Degree Motion Sensor

Typically these sensors are mounted on the ceiling and provide protection in a full 360 degrees and once motion is sensed a silent or audible alarm is activated

Standard Motion Sensor

These are sensors that are mounted in corners that provide protection when someone walks into the field of view of the detector. Many of these sensors have Passive Infrared Sensor technology that senses the body heat of an intruder. These PIR Sensors are designed to detect rapid change in temperature (body temperature) thus minimizing false alarms.

Outdoor Motion Sensors

These are constructed to be weatherproof and normally cost more than indoor motion sensors. Typical use would be to alert you that someone is coming up your driveway. When selecting an outdoor motion sensor, check to see about the available range of the unit as well as any built in safeguards for false alarms.

Detector Beams

Generally used in retail business to let the owner know a customer has just entered their shop. These units have a transmitter and receiver and each unit has to have a direct view of the other unit. When customers walk into their shop, they break the beam of light and a chime or alarm will sound depending on the settings.

Panic Button

Also known as a hold up button, usually is associated with a business. With all the current home invasions, home owners are realizing the value of such an item. These buttons can be placed anywhere in a home and tied directly to an existing security system. When the button is pushed, your system will activate an alarm that can be either audible or silent.

Outdoor Siren

When the sensor detects motion it will sound the alarm letting both the intruder as well as neighbors that there is an uninvited person on the property. 

Magnetic Pull Apart Contacts

Home owners find this to be an easy way to keep someone from coming in through a window or patio door. They easily attach to doors and windows and when separated, sound an alarm. The system can be unarmed for day to day use and activated when needed.

Glass Breakage Alarm

These sensor can be easily attached to any window in the house and an alarm will sound when the glass is hit, knocked or broken by anyone.

Low cost alarms and home protection devices can be very effective at stopping the bad guys from gaining entry to your home. Why risk the chance of a burglary when it can be so easily prevented?
