The goal of a security system is to protect the home or property that the system is installed on. A security system accomplishes this goal by securing every entry point to a home. A great advantage of having a security system as opposed to another type of system protect your home is that a security system can also be linked directly to an outside security company or even directly to the police department. This allows for maximum efficiency when responding to a potential threat. A security system operates by sending out a series of alerts that are used to notify these agencies when your security system has been compromised.
An entrance alarm can be placed on every single entry point to your home. This could include doors, windows, garage doors, even attic ventilation shafts and cellar doors. The more protected points there are within the home, the more secure your home will be. An entry alarm is generally composed of two metal connectors that are armed when the two connectors are touching. When a window is opened, or a door is opened, the metal connectors separate, the connection is lost, and the entry alarm goes off. This system works very well because it is very low tech, and does not rely on complicated sensors and faulty electronics to detect an intruder.
An entry alert system can also be installed on any other area of your property that you wish to have secured. For example, a security system could be set up to protect a pasture fence or the back gate to an estate. All of these entry points need to be secured and an entrance alarm allows you to do just that. The entrance alert will signal when the two connectors on the gate have been disconnected. This entry alert signal could be relayed to a police department, the security center, or even to the property owner’s cell phone. This technology allows for a property owner to always maintain protection over his or her estate and to have complete control over who comes and who goes on their land. An entrance alert system is very effective at managing entry points to a home or property, and is very cost effective to install. An entry alert is the most effective way of catching an intruder before they even reach your property and thwarting any potential criminals from breaking into your home or property.
