What Are the Different Types of Home Alarm Systems?
• Wired Alarm Systems are your basic burglar alarm. This system uses a low-voltage electrical circuit that flows between two points throughout a home’s doorways and windows or other entry points.
• Wireless Home Alarm System typically use a control panel and a series of sensors that are connected with built-in radio frequency transmitters. Once your alarm system is triggered, a signal is transmitted to the control panel and the alarm is activated.
• Unmonitored Home Alarm System relies on you or someone near your home to alert the authorities of an emergency. With an unmonitored system, audible and visual alarms are triggered whenever your system is tripped, but a monitoring center is not notified to dispatch help.
• Monitored Alarm Systems not only alert you when an emergency happens, but they also notify the monitoring center operators to send emergency services.
