In the list of top ten countries of the world with the most reported crime rates, the United States comes first. Do you think that this fact may not affect you? Do you think that you're family may not be exposed to violence and potential threats? That's not a clever thought. All across the world burglaries are being committed every second. With the prevailing economic conditions, there can be no assurance that your home is secure from burglaries and homicides. It's better to be safe than never, so home owners should consider taking measures to protect their families from the post trauma and distress that these crimes bring.

There are many ways in making your home secure and the well-known of them is home security systems. In the US, there are numerous security providers that offer trustworthy and affordable home security systems like ADT Home Security. With a home security system you can be rest assured that you're family is protected from burglaries, potential threats, fires and disasters. There are ways to protect your home by installing electronic locks to the doors, spikes on a fence or by hiring a security guard. But how fail-safe are these methods? Burglars these days come equipped with high-tech gadgets that can be easily used to break and enter the customary security systems. With the relative availability of harmful weapons, you can't trust that you're safe with a guard. But when you have your home protected by a good home security system, there's no need to doubt that your home will be protected in a better manner than before.

Before buying and installing a home security system, there are many things that you need to consider. Home security systems these days are cheap and there are options to monitor your house by installing a CCTV remotely, even when you're away on a vacation or when you're working. So it's better to do a little research before purchasing a home security system and ponder the various options available and then choose the package that suits you best.

Home security systems come in two different ways-hard wired and wireless. Wireless home security systems are more affordable as they don't require the expensive installation bill that accompanies a wired security system. The other advantage with wired home security systems is that it can cover more ground than the wired systems. While wired sensors cannot monitor more than 6-8 zones, wireless sensors can monitor 24 different zones in your house. You can install wireless systems anywhere you want but the same cannot be said for a wired system. You can group wireless sensors in the places where you think need more securing. Additionally, wireless sensors are portable. But there is a disadvantage that comes with grouping sensors- it's hard to detect and troubleshoot a faulty sensor.

There are different types of home security systems and they can be broadly classified into two groups- monitored and unmonitored. Unmonitored home security systems are ideal for light protection; they are cost effective and are the most popular home security systems available in the market today. Unmonitored security systems usually involve a burglar alarm and the siren goes off when triggered informing you of unwanted disturbances. Other forms of unmonitored security systems include motion activated floodlights, dialers and security cameras that capture pictures in intervals. Motion-activated floodlights aren't useful during most of the times. When movement is detected, the sensor is triggered and the floodlights are turned on. But when you're asleep there are chances that you may not be informed about intruder activity. Dialers are wireless security systems that dial your cell phone or other numbers when a motion sensor is triggered. While dialers intimate you on burglary attempts, picture taking cameras are ideal for evidence collection after a break in has occurred. Unmonitored alarm systems are cheaper than their monitored alternatives, but they are more suited for homes located in low crime localities and with reliable security systems like ADT Home Security, you can have a peace of mind knowing that you're house is better protected.
