Everyone likes to sleep easy at night knowing that your home is secure. The easiest and most cost effective way to do this is by installing an entry alert system. The basic concept is that an entry alarm is placed at every entrance to your home. Whenever that alarm is activated an entry alert signal sounds in the house. For example, if you place an entry alert on the front door to your house it will chime when someone walks through the door. If it is the middle of the day and your children are coming home from school this is nothing to be alarmed at, but if it is the middle of the night and you hear the chime, you are immediately alerted to a potential security threat.
An entrance alarm is the best first line of home defense. The entrance alert signals are loud enough that you will be immediately notified of any sensor that has been activated. You then have the option of contacting the proper authorities if you determine that the entry alarm means there is a potential threat to your safety.
Entrance alarms can be used to secure virtually any space. They can be used on large commercial buildings, small to medium sized homes, or even town homes and condo buildings. The entrance alarm system is very easy to install and one of the most cost effective security measures you can buy for your home. You can install an entrance alert system on any conceivable entry way to your home. The alarms can be installed on interior and exterior doors, windows, screens, basements, or even ventilation shafts.
There are also various types of entry alarms. You could buy a motion detector system which detects motion to trigger the alarm or a simple contact alarm which uses two magnetic contacts to detect when an entryway is breached. Once either of these alarms are triggered they send their alert signal to a receiving box which then relays the desired alert. Depending on your security needs alerts can range from a chime, to a buzzer, a strobe light, or even a siren.
