You have decided to get an alarm system to safeguard your house and kin. You are trying to determine which tools and services are truly necessary to provide a proper level of protection. Do you need to turn your house into a castle (moat and drawbridge also available)? Probably not. With that said though, what’s the proper balance? How much house safety is too much?
The truth about home security systems – To properly safeguard your house and kin, you need to assess your true safety requirements. To do that, some questions need to be asked:
What is the area of the place?
Is the place open floor plan?
How many doors are there to use?
Is the place multi-level?
Are you looking to safeguard the house when you are inside the house, away from the house, or both?
Are there any locations inside that require further safeguards?
Let’s go over each of the questions above to understand the importance. You don’t need bars on all windows and tens of thousands of dollars worth of tools for proper protection. These answers will let us know the true requirements to safeguard the place.
The size of the place is key to figuring out what’s necessary for proper safety. A condo requires less tools than a 5000 square foot house. The layout of the place matters equally as much. If the place is open concept then less tools are needed. If there are multiple littler areas which each contain valuables, then that should be noted as well. An open concept area requirements just 1 motion finder for full protection. This is because the trap zone is wide and is easily covered by 1 motion finder. This single piece of tools will catch any burglar since there’s no way to bypass it when armed.
We ask if the customer is looking to safeguard the house when they are inside or away from the house because this lets us know if motion detectors can be used. If someone wants safety when they are home, then a motion finder would be constantly triggered as they walk around the house. Other tools in this case works best. Proper house safety comes with understanding the user’s requirements.
Asking if there are any other locations that keep special requirements is important. For example, the homeowner may keep a valuable collection in a certain part of their house. Maybe they keep a house office that requirements extra safety? We won’t know that unless it’s measured. Whether it’s an expensive video game collection or pricey collection of Beanie Babies, unique situations may require unique safety requirements.
