A security system can seem intimidating at first. Let’s talk about what they’re all about.
An alarm system helps against intruders trying to come into your home. But did you know that they can also monitor life and property hazards such as smoke, carbon monoxide, low temperature and flooding?
There are many new options available to homeowners today in terms of alarms. In older homes, it is sometimes hard to run wires from the various burglary detecting equipment to the main control panel, usually located in the basement. However, these days wireless equipment exists that bypasses this problem!
Most security systems typically have at least one keypad. This is where the user can arm and disarm the system. It also will display any trouble conditions the alarm is having, such as loss of time or low battery.
There are also wireless devices, similar to car fobs, that can arm or disarm your system with a single button. These are handy when coming home with a pile of groceries, or arming your system from your bedside.
