Types of Home Security Systems
There are different types of home security systems, and you aren’t sure which one is right for you. To help you make your decision, here is a brief overview of the different types of alarm systems to help you decide.
- Monitored Alarm Systems
These types of security systems for your home are connected to a monitoring service. This means if someone trips the alarm, not only will it alert you, but it will immediately alert the alarm company as well. Usually, an agent calls you if someone trips the alarm. If you give the correct security phrase, he or she registers the situation as a false alarm. If you do not, they can send the authorities to your home immediately. These systems can also monitor and respond to issues like fires or carbon monoxide leaks.
- Smoke Alarm System
This is a system that alerts you if it detects fire or excessive smoke in your home, using loud sounds and flashing lights. A smoke alarm system can mean simply a series of smoke detectors, or it can include features such as:
- Heat detection
- Carbon monoxide detection
- Self-activating sprinklers
- Burglar Alarm System
A burglar alarm system is your basic home security alarm system. It can include window and door sensors and motion detectors. People set up burglar alarm systems to prevent any unwarranted intrusion or potential intrusion by activating alarm sounds and notifying police if something trips the sensors.
- Medical Alarm System
A medical alarm system is a simple addition to some types of home alarm systems that can be a life saver, especially if you have older adults or people with serious medical conditions in the home. It typically works as a special emergency button built into the keypad of your alarm system. If there is a medical emergency, a simple touch of that button alerts the company someone in the home needs help. This can be of great comfort if you need to be out of the house during the day, leaving people who may suddenly need urgent medical care behind.
- Critical Alarm System
A critical alarm system is a type of home alarm system that lets you know if any of the systems in your home, like the plumbing system or HVAC system, have been compromised. Since problems with these systems often aren’t apparent until a major breakdown, such as a burst pipe, has occurred, a critical alarm system can save you a lot of money and prevent damage.
