What Type of Equipment Should I Get?
There are multiple items you can use in your security system. It really depends on your needs, how much security you want, the square footage of the space you are looking to protect, number of entry points, and budget. There are some basic components seen in most systems, and Home Security Buff can outfit your home or business with these items.
These door and window sensors are the backbone of home security systems. If the system is armed, these sensors will trigger an alarm if a door or window is opened. The system will initially alert the homeowner and then send the response to the emergency services if the homeowner does not disarm the system.
Motion sensors use an invisible light or infrared technology that triggers when they sense body heat. These sensors can be better about triggering false alarms since they only trip when an object emits body heat.
We can mount surveillance and IP camera systems either inside or outside the property to help keep constant watch over your home or business. Many camera systems record continuously and will alert the homeowner if there is any activity. In many cases, the mere presence of a camera is enough to stop a criminal from attempting to break in.
Intercom Systems/Video Doorbells
Intercom systems are very popular on front doors, as someone inside the property can communicate with whoever is attempting to get in. They are also used within the home and provide a means of communicating with others in the event the house needs to be locked down. Video doorbells allow you to see someone who is at your door. These cameras help prevent a situation where you open the door not knowing who is out there. With a video/intercom combination, you do not have to get up off your couch to check who is at your door.
Remote Access/Automation Controls
A home automation component to your system makes it easy to set and arm all sensors, control cameras, and even control your lights and air conditioning in some cases. If you have an entryway gate, you can use remote access to open and close the gate from your smartphone or tablet device. As long as you are connected to internet, you can completely control your security system from anywhere.
