When you buy a home alarm system you receive a basic package, which includes the main control panel with keypad touch system, key chain controls to make it easier to arm and disarm the system remotely, an interior alarm that sounds when the system is activated, a power and backup transformer battery (in the event of a power cut), the motion detector warns against unauthorized movements inside the home sensor, windows and doors that make the alarm sound if opened without permission, police emergency button or panic button when help is needed at home for emergencies, window decals, and page signs to advertise the fact that your home is protected by an alarm system.
This basic package offers a lot of protection and peace of mind, but there are several options that can be purchased with a home alarm system. This additional add-on can provide more security for you and your family.
As we all know, most thieves are not good enough to just open doors or windows but tend to "breakthrough" their way. For this reason, many systems have a broken glass sensor, this sensor sounds an alarm every time the glass breaks, is destroyed or is cut.
If you have a very large house or you have a very large room in your house, you might want to buy an additional motion detector for maximum range. The motion detector is not only needed to detect unwanted intruders in your home but can also be used to limit movement in your home. If you have teenagers who might want to sneak out of the house at night, or if you care for elderly parents and want to keep them from hanging around outside.
There are other very special features that can be purchased, such as a water leak sensor, so there is a notification of potentially damaging leaks. Some of them can even be programmed to turn off the water supply and offer more protection against expensive water damage in your home. Sensors that monitor temperature changes are also available; this is a great addition if you are worried about freezing temperatures and possible frozen water pipes.
