In Sydney, theft and other criminal attacks are, unfortunately, quite common. Security systems are an extremely effective way to protect your home from these acts.
There are many different security systems that can be put in place to deter criminals from breaking into or vandalising your home. These range from the very simple (such as a ‘beware of the dog’ sign) to the more technologically advanced (such as CCTV).
Choosing the right security system for your home will depend on many different factors. These include where you live, what you need to protect, the size and layout of your property and your budget. Let’s take a look at some of your options!
This lighting is a cheap and reasonably effective way to deter break-ins. Although a large percentage of burglaries occur during the day, criminals are often active at night, and a great way to scare them off is to implement a system that illuminates vulnerable areas.
There are a range of lights to choose from to meet your specific needs and the needs of your property. These include:
- Solar flood lights
- Motion-activated lights
- Wireless lights
- Fluorescent lights
- High strength HID exterior lighting
Access Control Systems
An access control system is, as you may have guessed, a protection measures that denies access unless authorisation is given. When it comes to home surveillance, these systems usually encompass a simple gate that is connected to a remote system that allows you to control access with the press of a button. However, they can get increasingly complex depending on what you are looking for. For example, you could integrate your system to activate lighting, alarms and even open front door from a single device.
Intercoms are usually integrated into access control systems. These systems include an audio/visual component that allows communication between different areas in a property. They range from very simple, such as a two-way microphone/speaker system, to feature-heavy systems incorporating video, multiple monitor stations and remote access.
Home alarm systems are an effective way to detect intrusions and scare criminals away from your property. They can be installed indoor or outdoors, and all systems work around the same basic principle – once a sensor is triggered, the unit sounds the alarm. There are different sensors to choose from, including:
- Passive infrared motion detectors
- Ultrasonic detectors
- Microwave detectors
- Magnetic switches
- Photoelectric beams
- Glass break detectors
There are different types of alarm systems that offer different levels of protection. In most cases, the higher the level of surveillance the system offers, the more expensive they are.
Monitored system – When the alarm is triggered, it will alert a call center who will in turn call the police for you.
Unmonitored system – When the alarm is triggered, it sets off off a loud siren inside and outside the house. If you are home this will alert you that your house has been broken in to. If you are not home you will need to rely on the system scaring away the perpetrator or your neighbours calling the police.
Home Video Surveillance
The main problem with alarm systems is that, if you are not home, they give the thief plenty of time to steal your valuables and make an escape. Without any evidence that they can use to investigate, police will usually be unable to help retrieve what you have lost. However, with video footage available, their chances are much higher. This is why many people choose to install home video surveillance. These can also be integrated with monitored system so that when an alarm is triggered, your surveillance team can see what is going on, and call the police accordingly (this helps reducing the number of false alarms).
CCTV units range from simple wireless systems to complex, multi-camera monitored systems. Modern CCTV can even be monitored from mobile devices, so you can see what is happening in real time from practically anywhere. If you’re on a tight budget, you can even install fake camera to help deter criminals.
