Interior spaces that contain valuables such as art, guns, computer and coin collections are secured using security systems as well as entry points such as doors and windows are also secured. Security systems need to be in order so as to carry its function as its not dependent on the house. The security systems are monitored by the control panel. The means or method of securing through a system of inter working components and devices is defined as the security system. Thieves and intruders are kept at bay by using home security systems which are networks of integrated electronic devices that work together with a central control panel.
A home security system is encompassed of various components such as a yard sign, window stickers, a high decibel siren, control panel, door and window sensors, wired security cameras and motion sensors. A control panel is the primary controller in home security systems as it is the computer that either alerts or disarms security systems. Each installed component within the home security systems is communicated by the control panel in order to sound the alarm upon a security breach.
Pass codes are entered to arm or disarm the system when programming and interaction occurs. Wireless remote controls or key fobs work with the touch pads when programming the system.
An invisible zone is created using motion sensors in order to give protection to a space. The invisible zone when breached sounds an alarm as quickly as possible and motion sensors are used to protect rooms that contain valuables such as money, art and guns. Another home security component is the door and window sensor which are comprised of two parts that are installed adjacent to each other. One of the parts is installed on the door or window while the other is installed on the window sill or door frame. So as to form a security circuit the door or window is closed whereby the two parts of the sensor are joined together.
Upon arming of the security system at the control panel the sensors communicate with it by reporting that the point of entry is secure. Sudden opening of the door or window results to breaking of the security circuit in which the control panel interprets this as a security breach thereby sounding of the alarm.
Automatic notification of the alarm monitoring company is done so when the high decibel alarm is sounded. A high decibel alarm needs to be loud enough in order to alert the neighbors and also scare away burglars. In addition to the home security systems is the surveillance cameras as they need to be available in both wired and wireless configurations and can be accessed remotely.
