The Home Security System
Even though it has been more than 200 years since its invention, a home security system is still the best way to protect your home in Dallas Fort Worth or anywhere else. Dogs can’t call 911, guns can’t shoot if nobody’s home, and relying on neighbors to keep an eye on your property just isn’t feasible anymore.
An Interesting History
The home security system was developed around 1850 by Edwin Holmes. He installed over 1200 burglar alarms in New York by 1866, and began offering alarm monitoring in 1877. He became president of Bell Telephone Company, and even though he sold his interest 2 years later, kept his rights to use the phone lines to monitor alarms.
We’ve Come A Long Way Baby
For a very long time, security systems for home use hardly changed. New sensors were developed, like photoelectric smoke detectors, glassbreak detectors and motion detectors with pet immunity, but the basic functions remained the same. A sensor was tripped, the siren sounded, and the security system sent a signal over a phone line to a central alarm monitoring station.
Now, smart security systems send signals both ways, constantly communicating even when the alarm isn’t armed. With Crash & Smash Protection, a burglar alarm can even alert the central station when it has been disabled, damaged or destroyed. Homeowners can get information about doors opening or locking, temperature changes, fire or smoke, and even see video of events at their property on their cell phones. A home phone line isn’t even necessary with wireless alarm monitoring
Finding The Right Fit
As you can see from the chart above, there are many options when it comes to designing a home security system. Choosing the features that are right for you can be a daunting task. Our experts can help create a custom solution for your home and family over the phone or in person.
The most obvious factors to consider are the layout of your home and the areas that need protection. How many doors and windows lead to the outside? Do you want to use contacts or glassbreak detectors to protect your windows? How many motion detectors are needed, and where should they be located?
Next, decide if you want Fire Protection. Monitored smoke detectors alert the fire department even when you are not home, and are always on, even if you don’t arm your home security system. New technology protects against false alarms, and in some cases existing detectors can even be used.
Now, for the fun part! Besides protecting your home from burglary, fire and medical emergencies, a home alarm system can add convenience and efficiency to your life with Smart Home Automation.
