Tips And Hints In Burglar Alarm Installation

Jan 5, 2008
Because of the increasing crime rate, people are becoming more and more concerned about their security. Whether it be for the car, office, home, people are looking for means and ways to go about their daily activities safely. That's why most of them employ the services of a burglar alarm system. Some of them even do the installation themselves so that they'll be more secure since they are the ones doing it.

Here are some tips and hints in burglar alarm installation:

1. Find out if you're going to need a wireless or hirewired installation. It's a choice between a hardwired or a wireless alarm system. The factors that one must weigh in is the layout of the house, whether it's new or already existing, the cost as well as the availability of the system. You might find out that wires may not look good with the interior design of your room, so you might opt to have a wireless system. Though more expensive, this makes your security system discreet to observers. If you are having a major renovation or having a new home, you might want to incorporate a hardwired system into your design. You might choose to run it embedded in your walling or flooring.

2. It's easier to run the wires or cables down the doorframes, and these can be easily hidden by covering them with a moulding.

3. At floor level, it is recommended to run the wires under the flooring board if it is possible. If this is not possible, try making a small gap between the carpet underlay and the inside edge of the carpet gripper rod and let your wire or cable run through this gap. If this is not possible either, you can always try trunking.

4. When installing, make sure that you lay out your components correctly. You should have a floor plan of the building. Then you can determine the points of entry, different rooms, windows, as well as the most vulnerable areas in the building. You should also make a walk-through with your building to see the areas that might be most susceptible for intrusion. With that information, one could already determine what type of alarm system is to be used as well as the different zones to cover.

5. The placing of the panel and the keypad comes next. The sensors, bellbox, internal sounders are also then placed in strategic locations.

To ensure proper installation, follow the steps properly. This is to ensure that you have an efficient system, as well as no problems during installation. This will save you a lot of money, time as well as effort.
