The system alarm protect homes and businesses from intruders. While no system will not prevent a crime occurs, an alarm system notifies the owner of the house (and the security company if the alarm is monitored) so that appropriate action can be taken. As its name implies, an alarm system consists of several components that work together to help ensure a home or business.


Master Control Panel
The main control panel is the brains of the system alarm. Here, the alarm system technician program each alarm sensor and the code to be used in the system. When a sensor is activated, the main control panel interprets that signal and transmitted to a monitoring station and / or sound the alarm. Usually, the main control panel is in a space in a closet or a space tracking.

The keyboard is perhaps the most visible component of the alarm system. Usually found on a wall near the front door or in a master bedroom. The keyboard typically has 10 number buttons and more buttons “function”. Here, the owner typed an alarm code to arm and disarm the system. The function buttons include options such as “Panic” (which automatically alerts the police or emergency medical personnel to be sent to local) and “Stay” (a configuration commonly weapon exterior doors, but leave motion detectors inactive because people are “remaining” on the site but want the site is secured).
Door and window sensors
The door and window sensors are activated when the door or window is opened. Typically, the system uses a switch and a magnet installed in parallel with each other in the door jamb or window pane. When the door or window is opened, the switch recognizes that the magnet is no longer in place and sends a signal to the main control panel to sound an alarm. These are usually installed on all exterior doors and windows on the first floor.

Motion Sensors
Motion sensors are activated whenever movement occurs in a designated area. Are typically installed in the upper corner of a room and are aimed at entry points (eg, the bottom or the top of a ladder). Whenever movement occurs in the range of the sensor, a signal to the main control panel is sent to sound the alarm.
