The Importance of a Good Burglar Alarm System

Aug 17, 2007
In this day and age where burglary rates are at an all time high in most countries, we must do everything we can to protect ourselves, our families and our possessions. People simply cannot afford to risk living in a home which is not fitted with a good burglar alarm.

Many people overlook the multiple purposes burglar alarms have, and people whom may think they don't have enough valuables and possessions worth protecting may forgo having a burglar alarm fitted. But you must be aware that not every person who enters your house has intentions of stealing from you, many other serious and violent crimes can occur within you're home because a burglar alarm didn't deter the perpetrator. A burglar alarm serves not only to protect you're property but also you and your family.

A good burglar alarm will be one which cannot be disarmed by simply unplugging it from the wall socket, as this is a major shortcoming of many older and less expensive burglar alarms. A good burglar alarm will contain the actual alarm in a nice neat case which you will fit on the outside of your wall, and have a light on also to act not only as a burglar deterrent during the dark, but also to attract attention to it when it goes off.

There are many types of burglar alarms, some are ones which are simply rigged up to go off should the front or back door be opened whilst the alarm is set, meaning unless the alarm is disarmed by using the correct code, the alarm will go off within a matter of a few seconds. The best burglar alarms however are ones which contain infra red sensors which are correctly placed and positioned in each of the rooms of the house to detect movement even in conditions of complete darkness. Of course, not all burglars enter through the main doors, but may gain entry into your house by other means. For instance, a burglar alarm system which has no movement sensors will be useless if a burglar gains entry by way of a window which has been left ajar, or if they are sophisticated enough to remove or break a pane of glass to gain entry without making sufficient noise to cause disruption. One final factor is the noise a burglar alarm makes. It must be a very loud noise to cause panic and to cause the burglars to leave, this may be an obvious point but you may be surprised by the amount of burglar alarm systems on the market which don't produce a loud enough noise.
