The Importance of a Security Alarm
In the 2009 - 2010 year the NZ Police recorded 60,142 acts of unlawful entry, burglary and breaking and entering.
Without the appropriate security alarm measures you could become one of these statistics. The last thing you want is to have your business or home violated, irreplaceable property stolen and your staff or family put at personal risk.
A security alarm is an effective deterrent against crime. When an intruder activates an alarm system, they rarely hang about. This helps prevent burglars from taking everything they want. A visible, correctly marked alarm can deter a burglar from even considering your property.
The Benefits of a Quality Security System
- Greater safety and security for you and your family
- Peace of mind
- Helps prevent people taking your personal possessions
A quality alarm system in conjunction with good security lighting, quality locks and security latches, can significantly reduce the risk of being burgled. You owe it to yourself and your family to get your home properly secure now.
Standard Alarm Systems
Most standard alarm systems include:
- 2 - 4 PIR sensors / detectors (Passive Infra Red sensor) Some models can distinguish between human and pet movement.
- A key pad or touch screen.
- A control unit or box. This is the brains of the system and normally contains a battery back up in case of power failure.
- Screamers or siren for inside the house and an external siren.
Other Security Alarm Features
Some security systems give you the option of segmenting areas / zones. This enables you, for instance, to have the alarm set throughout the house while you're in your bedroom. This gives you peace of mind while you're asleep.
Perimeter detectors can be installed on properties like car yards. These provide security to an open, outdoor environment.
Panic alarms enable you to set / unset and activate the alarm remotely.
