Wireless Security Systems

The development and production capabilities of modern manufacturing facilities have created cheap, effective wireless security systems. Wireless systems are comprised of a main control or console panel that integrates the electronics devices needed to receive signals from all the different types of transmitters placed at doors and windows around the house. The remote transmitters or sensors most often use batteries which you must periodically change. Many systems also have the capability for remote sensors to transmit their current state periodically. This way the panel can tell you if a remote sensor's batteries are low in power.

Wireless security systems are very cost effective for use in homes that are already built. There are a number of wireless accessories that can be used with them as well. Anything from a remote garage door opener, to wireless key chain transmitters kept on a person are considered wireless security accessories.

Wireless systems use radio frequencies to transmit data and certain ranges of frequencies are permitted to be used for these systems. Numerous electronic devices use the available radio spectrum including televisions and radio station broadcasts, police, fire and ambulance two way radios, wireless home phones, cellular phones, shortwave radios and more.

Three radio frequency ranges have been set out for use with wireless security sytems . The 40 Mhz spectrum is where most cheap wireless systems operate. Systems operating in the 300 to 420 Mhz range are a better system because these systems use less battery power to operate, the signal is narrower and less subject to interference and the signal can penetrate building materials better so they are more likely to work. Motion sensors may broadcast at a very specific frequency such as 300 Mhz and that means less power is used and there is a reduced chance of interference. Government authorities tend to protect that range of radio frequency from misuse.

The 902 to 928 freqency range is called the spread spectrum. Security systems in this range send redundant signals via different frequencies to ensure the message is received by the console. This technique offers better resistance to interference however it requires more battery power and may not penetrate building materials very well.

Home Alarm Systems

...

Discovering which of the many home alarm systems is the best is not the whole issue you need to consider. Consider more than just brand names and making a hurried purchase because you expect the brand to do everything advertised. The right home alarm systems are those that have the features and flexibility you need to cover your house properly.

For instance, certain types of home security systems , such as those that use infrared motion sensors may seem ideal, however if you have large, active dog, you may find you'll be getting annoying false alarms. If you need to keep your children's bedroom windows partially open in summer, then you'll need magnetic window alarms that allow the window to be set partically open.

Home Alarm Systems X10 Security Cameras

...

Home security systems are grouped differently depending on the use of the system and the technical features it offers. There are magnetic, electric circuit and motion detecting systems, infrared systems and wireless security systems. There are systems with security cameras , electric fences and guard dog perimeters. And there are systems that commumicate via household electric wires called the X10 security systems and those operated remotely via the Internet.

Some home alarm systems are defined by the type of alarm, although the alarm is just the last part of the full detection system which alerts neighbors, you or the police. Alarms can be silent or use loud speakers to squeal obnoxiously across a neighborhood. Some systems are identified by whether they are stationary or mobile, for example car alarms and personal alarm systems are considered mobile.
