The importance of an effective alarm system

The safety and security of ourselves, our families and our property is a top priority. Of the many measures one can take to ensure the safety of property and loved ones, an effective alarm system installed by a professional security company is one of the most effective. A single alarm system serves a triple purpose of detecting intrusions, determining the location of the intrusion and deterring would be intruders.

What is an alarm system?

An electronic alarm system is a specialised system used to detect intruders that are trying to enter a building or area without authorisation, and to alert specific persons (including the homeowner and security company) as to the possible intrusion.

These systems work on the rather simple yet effective concept of securing the entry points of a building with specialised sensors that are connected to the control panel (also known as a command centre) of the alarm system. This control panel is usually installed in a convenient location that is easy for the home- or business owner to access.

The sensors with which the alarm system works are placed at strategic points in a building, including windows, doors and open areas inside or outside the building in question.

An electronic alarm system is made up of several components, including:

  • A control panel that serves as the primary controller for the alarm system
  • Window and door sensors
  • Motion detectors (interior and/or exterior)
  • A high decibel alarm (siren)
  • Signs provided by the security company
