An alarm system is probably one of the most important things you will ever buy for your home or business. Before you make this investment, there are a few things that you should know about alarm systems in general.
The following menu contains a list of what comprises a basic alarm system and a brief explanation of each of the components. However, it is not meant to infer that these components comprise complete protection. There are many more types of devices, which have not been described here, but which your local security professional will be more than happy to discuss with you. Your alarm installer will elaborate and suggest what features are available and which are appropriate for your security application.
