Home Alarms: an Instant Warning System against Home Security Penetration

Any home's first line of defense is its actual, physical barriers. Alarms exist in order to warn you when those barriers are being penetrated or compromised. Fully securing your home with a system of alarms may seem initially like a daunting and expensive task, but with the right equipment and some planning, it can be done pretty easily.

For instance, you can install motion-activated alarms on key entry points to your property. This means all obvious entryways such as your front door, gate, garage, or backdoor. You can even install a pool alarm, which is not just useful for detecting intruders but also for informing you that pets or kids may have fallen into an unsupervised pool. Once these devices detect motion, you will be notified via alarm sounds that are sure to wake you up and inform you of the unwelcome presence.

Proper placement is key to making good use of alarms. Put yourself in the mindset of a smart criminal. In the dead of night, how would a criminal attempt to enter your home? Would installing just door and window alarms be enough to keep intruders out? Of course, not.

Some entry points are not too obvious, and sometimes, those are what you really have to worry about. Maybe there is a gap in your backyard fence big enough for an adult to fit through. Could criminals get in through the bathroom window? There are plenty of ways to trespass into a home via strange, unexpected places, and it can be hard to keep track of all of them. This is what specialized alarms called voice alert systems are for.

In a voice alert system, you can record anyone's voice saying the specific area in which a sensor is placed. For instance, if you put a sensor beside that gap in your backyard fence, you can program the receiver to say “backyard, fence” whenever the sensor detects movement in the area. It will not just be random noise that leaves you guessing where the intruder is but a clear voice that tells you exactly which part of your home's barriers has been compromised. This type of top rated home alarm system can be useful not just in the home but also in the workplace, allowing you to monitor when employees or other people are present in certain areas.

When you are considering house alarms wired or wireless options are equally valid. With wireless systems, you will not have to worry about wires giving away the position of sensors. Placement will be easier. With wired systems, you will not have to worry about replacing your sensor's batteries. Which is more important to you?

When you buy home security alarm system sensors and kits, you are taking a big step towards outsmarting criminals, burglars, and home invaders. Just remember, alarms are one part of home security. What are you going to do once the invaders make their way inside your property?

Survive a Home Invasion with Life and Property Intact

Sometimes, you are going to have no other choice but to defend yourself from an invasion. Your primary goal here is to survive and avoid getting hurt, which can be accomplished with a bit of strategy and some help from certain tools and kits.

One of these tools is a door brace: an extendable high-strength steel tube designed to brace doors (even sliding doors) against the floor, making the door virtually impenetrable. It is not going to make the door explosion-proof, but it can prevent even strong criminals from kicking the door in. If you can prevent entry while calling the police for help, you are halfway to surviving and stopping the invasion.

There are also survival kits designed for family homes, small apartments, and college dormitories. Not only do these kits contain alarms that you can install but also items that can give you the edge during threatening encounters. For instance, the college survival kit comes with 4 different units of pepper spray. While these sprays are of different designs and sizes, they carry the same formula: OC pepper spray that can subdue a full-grown adult instantly through extreme and immediate pain, inflammation, mucus overproduction, and blindness through swelling. Armed with even a little bit of pepper spray, you can make a criminal instantly regret invading your home.

Another good way to beef up security against those who already have access to your home is through diversion safes. These are small to medium-sized containers with a twist: they are brilliantly disguised as ordinary household items. If there is something in your home, dorm, or office that you want specifically to protect, like heirloom jewelry, a thumb drive that contains sensitive information, or the wad of cash that is next week's allowance, a diversion safe can hide it in plain sight.

Diversion safes come in all sorts of sizes and disguises. For dormitory rooms, there are the Axe body spray and dictionary combination lock. For the bathroom, there is the Brush Free bowl cleaner spray or the hairbrush. Pick disguises that can be hidden in plain sight without risk of discovery.

When you are dealing with criminals who are threatening you and your home, the good news is that the odds are in your favor. Whether they are strangers who have invited themselves in (thieves, burglars, home invaders) or people who have gained your trust enough for you to invite them in (friends, hired help, neighbors, delivery people), these criminal trespassers are just unwelcome visitors on your property. And with a couple of simple modifications and tools, you can cut their visits short.
