diy home security systems

Prior to wireless technology, a security system was connected by a series of wires running throughout a building and just like you have seen in the movies these wires could be cut to disable the system. Not only that but monitored systems had to be connected to the monitoring station by a land phone line that could also be cut to disable that end of the system as well. With new wireless technology the actual components that make up the total system operate without wires and communicate with the control panel by radio waves. Each component is powered by a small battery that lasts up to three years and the component itself is programmed to signal the control panel when the battery runs low, so there is never a chance of a battery running dead. With new advancements in micro electronics technology a modern up to date security system not only protects your home and property so much more efficiently with multiple layers of security but the the systems also has self protection elements in it that prevent it from being bypassed. Yet another new feature of todays alarm and security systems is a new user friendliness. In fact, todays home security systems are activated and deactivated using a small button device that is carried on your key chain and function just like the clicker that you use for your car alarm. When leaving for your generally earned siesta be insightful and audit your home security. The last figures from the FBI indicate a robbery happens each 15. 4 seconds in the USA. The dominant part of these break ins happen when the householder is far from the home.
