Hello,

A security system is an electronic/wireless system that you install in your house to monitor your home, and hopefully it will help to deter burglars from breaking into your house as well. You can either hire a security monitoring company to monitor the alarms in your home (recommended), or you can set up your own system and monitor your home yourself.

If a company is monitoring your home, they will call the police if the alarms go off and there is a break-in, they will also try to get in touch with you to make sure you are safe. If you install things such as light sensors, or window and door sensors, you will most likely stop someone from breaking into your home because it will scare them away.

If you choose to install your own system and do some self-monitoring, you will need to make sure that you install a lot of bells and whistles to help ward off criminals. In the off-chance that the burglar isn’t too concerned about your warning signs and decides to break-in anyway, then the only way the cops are going to get dispatched is if you call them or your neighbours hear your alarms and call the cops themselves.

It’s important to make sure that you weigh the pros and cons of either option. Shop around and do your research and see what kind of system and features that you’d like to have installed. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

The most basic definition of any security system is found in its name. It is literally a means or method by which something is secured through a system of interworking components and devices.

In this instance, we're talking about home security systems, which are networks of integrated electronic devices working together with a central control panel to protect against burglars and other potential home intruders.

A typical home security system includes:

A control panel, which is the primary controller of a home's security system

Door and window sensors

Motion sensors, both interior and exterior

Wired or wireless security cameras

A high-decibel siren or alarm

A yard sign and window stickers
