Thieves are always on the lookout for easy targets. The only way to deter them is to catch them or scare them off and burglar alarms are your best bet in this regard. You just have to install one and carry out maintenance once every two months to stay safe.
How do they work and what are the advantages?
As the name itself suggests, burglar alarms protect the home from potential risks of break-ins and robbers. These devices put them off by sounding a loud alarm and alerting the police and neighbouring area.
With the increasing number of robberies, it is understandable that people are concerned about the safety of their homes and themselves. Basic burglar alarms use the PIR or Passive Infrared motion sensor on windows and doors. These sensors are connected to a control unit through low voltage hardwires or RF narrowband signal.
Burglar alarms come in various types. They can be small, self contained, low noise systems for small houses or they can be more sophisticated ones with multi zoning systems along with colour coded computer monitors for industries and organisations. Some modern burglar alarms can even be used as fire or smoke alarms simultaneously.
