Homeowners acknowledge the importance of having a home security system that can provide them and their families with better protection. For most homes, the norm is usually a burglar alarm system that can alert police authorities when disturbances occur. Unfortunately, there are numerous instances that calls from these burglar alarm systems are mere false alarms, and the situation has deteriorated to the point that police authorities would dismiss such calls as nothing more than pure nuisance calls. This has made this type of home security systems as largely ineffective in averting crime and stopping criminals dead on their tracks.
The good news is that there are new generation of modern home security systems that are more effective and reliable in providing security and protection to you and your family.
There are now modern surveillance cameras with artificial intelligence features that make it possible to detect the presence of genuine threat to your family and your property. These surveillance cameras are equipped with motion sensors that can detect whether something is happening within its field of coverage or not. There are even those models that can filter out the possible false alarms so that it does not trigger the alarm when your pet enters its field of vision.
When a real threat or intrusion is detected by the surveillance camera, it automatically interfaces with the computer system in your home and relays an email or text message alerting you of the potential security issues. The security alert will include pictures of the specific parts of your home where the intrusion is detected. In this way, you will be able to determine if there is really a serious security threat in your home.
If there is a genuine intrusion, then you can alert police authorities, and they will likely arrive at the scene faster than when you are using an ordinary burglar alarm since they a receiving a call from a real person. They may or may not arrive on time to thwart the burglary, but even if the crime is completed and the burglar is able to leave your home before the police arrives, the surveillance photos will provide an invaluable lead for detectives who will follow up the case. With these surveillance photos, police will be able to have a positive ID of the suspect and everything that was stolen.
Another type of modern home security system is the device that is capable in creating an infrared triangle within your home. This serves as an unseen protective barrier that is difficult to penetrate without activating the security alarm. These security gadgets are battery-operated, with no wiring and can be easily transferred to other locations when the need arises.
You can also install a window security system that sends off a deafening sound when someone attempts to break through. This security gadget can be easily installed on the window. There is also a more advanced magnetic window and door alarm that operates on magnetic affinity and triggers a high-decibel siren. The base of the home security gadget is bolted to the window or door frame, and the actuator is attached to the main door or window. The deafening sound will surely drive away the intruder.
Another security gadget which you can use in your home is the one that will make the intruder believe that there is a live dog inside your home. This type of security gadget is outfitted with electronic radar system that can “see” through walls and doors. With this kind of gadget, you will have your own “barking dog” that works round the clock or as long as it is plugged to a power source.
