A typical home security system includes:
Alarm control panel
This is the heart of a security alarm system. All the sensors and devices are connected to the control panel which monitors the state of each device and can sound an alarm when any of the device has been activated. It then sends a message to the monitoring station or can notify the users by emails, voice calls or text message.
Glass break detectors
Breaking a window is one of the easiest and most common ways for an intruder to enter a home or business. To help protect against this type of intrusion, a glassbreak detector is needed. “Smart” enough to distinguish the sound of breaking glass from other common sounds found in homes and businesses, the detectors feature high-performance microphones and advanced microprocessor-based Digital Sound Analysis (DSA) that can determine all types of breaking framed glass.
Optional monitoring devices
One or all these devices can be chosen for purposes of self monitoring or remote control of the alarm systems. Device such as an IP interface can connect to network router and can be accessed and controlled through smart devices using apps. A voice dialer is another device which connects to the home telephone line and can auto dial stored numbers when an alarm occurs.
A digital keypad is used to arm or disarm the alarm system. This is usually located near exit/entry doors, where a user has to enter a pass code to activate or de-activate the alarm system. These new LED/LCD touch screen keypads can also have your family pictures displayed as screen savers.
Motion sensors are devices that use various forms of technology to detect movement. The technology typically found in motion sensors to trigger an alarm includes infrared, ultrasonic, vibration and contact. Dual technology sensors combine two or more forms of detection in order to reduce false alarms such as motion and heat. Traditionally motion sensors are an integral part of a home security system. "These devices are typically installed to cover a large area as they commonly cover up to 40ft with a 135° field of vision. Some models are also available with pet immunity and built in glass break sensors.
Heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
Most systems may also be equipped with smoke, heat, and/or carbon monoxide detectors. These are programmed as 24 hour zones (which are on at all times). Smoke detectors and heat detectors protect from the risk of fire and carbon monoxide detectors protect from the risk of carbon monoxide.
