A basic security system consists of a control panel which functions as a central computer, receiving messages from a number of sensors that act as the 'eyes and ears' of the system. If the system is armed and a signal is received by the panel it automatically dials a Monitoring Station via a built-in telephone communicator. The station operator then dispatches the appropriate authorities.

Keypads located near common entry doors and in the bedroom area allow you to control the system. Any number of other products make up a system.

These may include;

  • Magnetic Contacts protect doors and windows that open
  • Motion Detectors (Infrared detectors) detect movement within a defined area
  • Glassbreak Detectors protect windows and glass doors
  • Panic Switches, both wired-in and wireless, can be manually operated
  • Sirens sound the alarm at the premises
  • Smoke Detectors detect any smoke in the house
  • Low Temperature Detectors detect a heating failure
  • CO Detectors detect a build up of Carbon Monoxide
  • Water Sensors can detect a high water level at the sump pump or water seepage at floor level where sensor is located.
