Alarm SystemsAt The Solent Electronic Home we know how to install an alarm system which is easy to live with, does not cause false alarms, is not expensive and will interact with your home automation systems to enhance the security of the whole house and its contents and inhabitants.
Alarm System ChoicesSecurity can operate on several levels and the most sphisticated alarm systems will provide a choice of levels of security.
You can have a simple stand-alone alarm which is set when you leave the house and which sounds an alarm if any of the sensors, PIRs or switches or smoke detectors, are disturbed.
You can add to this a GSM card so that you and your designated neighbours, friends or family members are alerted whenever there is an incident. And you can choose the incidents which send messages. There are also comms cards connected to a regular phone line and which are suitable for monitoring services.
You can add to the simple alarm another level of setting so that all doors, garage doors and windows are monitored while you are in the house ( sleeping for example) and then all sensors, internal PIRs as well as doors and windows are included in the setting when you leave the house.
You can also add interaction with the home automation system such as turning on lights in the house when a would-be intruder is detected in the garden and then all the lights in the house if a break-in occurs.
Other interactions are possible using intelligent monitoring of doors and windows to decide whether movement detected in the house is legitimate or whether you should be alerted to what is going on.
Alarm Systems and Home AutomationAn alarm system can also be integrated into the home automation system, so that when the alarm is sounded, interior and exterior lights can be switched on, or other actions triggered, even as far as turning on a music system. This increases the effect of the alarm sounder alone, and is often enough to deter an intruder.
