Home Alarm Exterior SirenThere is no one thing more important to have on your home alarm system than an exterior siren. Even if your system is monitored by a central station it is absolutely necessary to have an outdoor sounding device. Although the police authorities are immediately dispatched, it will still take several minutes for them to arrive at the protected premises. These vital minutes make the difference from someone having the time to roam all over your home. Having a loud exterior siren minimizes the amount of time an intruder will take a chance in spending inside your home. In most cases a burglar will immediately leave a house alarmed with an outside siren to avoid arousing suspicion within the neighborhood. A neighbor is very likely to peek outside their window if they hear a loud siren going off at their neighbors house. Nothing is a better deterrent than audible noise alerting all neighbors.
Phone Line ProtectionMany Miami home alarm owners choose to have their systems monitored through their existing phone line and this too can prove to be a bad decision. Most burglars today know that home alarm systems communicate through the existing home phone lines. The other thing that they along with most of us know is that the house phone lines are accessible on the out side of most homes. The phone companies intentionally install a main interface box on the outside of homes where they can get to the main phone lines without ever having to enter the actual home. This makes it very easy for a burglar to simply go to that interface box and cut your phone lines. By doing this they are basically disabling your home alarm system from being monitored. So just imagine that no one hears the alarm going off and the monitoring station doesn't receive a signal. This basically becomes an alarm system that serves no purpose.
Glass Break SensorsAnother critical device that all home alarm systems should have are glass break sensors. Most alarm system owners simply assume that their home alarm system comes equipped with glass protection. The fact of the matter is that most alarm system packages do not include any kind of glass break protection. In order for your home alarm system to be complete it is essential to make sure that adequate glass protection is included. Glass break detectors are designed to cover a radius of approximately 25 feet of open space to detect the sound of breaking glass. Every room requires it's own glass break sensor because the only work within the enclosed areas of each room. These sensors work whether you arm the system while you are home or away.
These and other home alarm system devices are essentials to making your home alarm system complete. Many people have a false sense of security because they put their trust in the fact that they have somewhat of a home alarm system but don't really know what that system contains. A further examination of your system will many times reveal that there are things lacking to make your home alarm system complete.
