House alarms – the Perfect Device for Home Security

By Gary Hides Subscribe to RSS | December 15th 2011 | Views:

What are the best methods to prevent intruders in the house? The simplest answer is House Alarms. The most effective home security system would be the one that prevents would be intruders to enter the home at all. These alarm systems have to be placed at the doors or windows. Here are the main components of different house alarms to properly understand their usage.

The most common alarm systems come with sensors that use the magnetic contact technology. It is simply composed of two magnets that trigger the alarm when separated. The magnets are placed on the door and the door frame. When the door opens, the magnets separate and the alarm is triggered. For windows, the idea is same, one magnet on the frame and the other on the window frame. There is very less risk for these alarm systems to be breached as magnets can be small and hard to tamper with.

Custom window screens that conceal alarm wires are also a good option. The alarm is triggered when the screens are ripped, removed or cut. The alarm wires are undetectable from outside and this system can be added to any existing system.

For securing windows, foil tape is another method. It is a thin, electrically conductive metallic tape that is pasted at the perimeter of the window. The alarm triggers when the tape is torn by opening of the window. Its installation is a bit tricky as it must have a continuous strip that makes going round the corners easy. It has to be put very neatly so that the intruder has no chance of detecting it. It is advised that the tape should be covered by varnish after installation.

Sound detecting alarms activate after certain special sounds are made like that of breaking of glass. They are also called glass breaking detectors and are installed near the windows. In some environments that have usual high pitched sounds, these alarms might be activated falsely. It is important to test them with a sensor in the home before installation. They are mostly used as backup for other methods.

All of the different types of security alarms are electronic devices and so it is advised that if the person is installing them without the help of an electrician, use multimeters to check all voltages, resistances and current. This will make sure the working of the alarm.

When it comes to security, many guests can be dangerous too, by the harmful bacteria that they bring with them. Never forget to install Hand dryers in the place of towels so that the repeated use of towels by different persons does not leave a chance of bacteria getting collected.
