Wired Alarm

Did you know that a home burglary occurs every 15 seconds? It gets worse; homes without security systems are up to 2.7 times more vulnerable to burglaries than homes with effective security systems (A Secure Life). In addition to burglaries, security systems have protected people from fires, floods, gas explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning
An effective wired alarm system, made up of various sensors, could offer you the protection you need. They are also available in the market, and if your home is under construction or renovation, it could be the perfect time to install home security system.

Components of Wired Alarm System

A basic alarm system typically consists of the following:
1. Keypad(s) - is your main user interface where the system is either armed or disarmed. It could also be further secured using a passcode.
2. Main Control Panel - is wired to this operating system, including the connections to a monitoring station.
3. Sensors - are wired individually to the main security panel and could include motion detectors, door and window contacts, among others.
4. Siren(s) - could sound or alert visually when triggered.
If the sensors detect abnormal activity or atmospheric levels then it would alert you using the siren. Our central monitoring service would then send a professional response team such as the police or the fire fighters, depending on the situation, to come to your assistance.



Area Requirements for Installation

Before installation, we ensure your security needs, as you may not need all the sensors a wired alarm system offers. Find out:
1. If the area is pre-wired
2. How many entry points are there and which of these are important
3. The square footage that need to be covered
4. Where the sensors have to be placed
5. Where the main control panel should be placed

Things to Consider

You should take into account some of the following:
1. Wired alarm systems are not battery operated so there may be no need to worry about battery failure.
2. Wired alarm systems are not disabled by cutting wires. The only wires that can disrupt the system (even for some wireless systems) are the communication wires to the monitoring station, such as a telephone line.
3. Explain to your loved ones how to use the alarm system and what to do in case of emergencies.
When it comes to your security, the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” could not be less true. According to FBI, 97% of all home intrusions happen when no one is at home. There is a greater likelihood that a burglar would pass on a house knowing that it is wired with burglar alarm system.



Center Monitoring station - The Unsung Heroes

The team working at the CMS are the unsung heroes of this security system. As soon as the station receives a signal, the operators contact the owner and the concerned authorities so that any attempt to break-in can be foiled.
