An electronic alarm system involves a low-voltage electrical circuit with sensors on entry doors and windows. When a door or window is opened, its sensor detects the interruption in the flow of electricity and triggers a warning signal such as a siren or light. While most systems will just use lights or sirens to deter and intruder, you may choose a monitored system which also notifies the police of the intrusion.

CCTV, (closed-circuit television), is a system that allows you to keep an eye on what is going on, both in and around a building. Cameras and monitors enable you to view events live, and recorders can archive footage for later reference. CCTV has proven to be great in improving the safety of your home, through preventing break-ins, theft and vandalism. There is a huge number of options surrounding CCTV and how it can be installed in your home to suit your goals and needs.

There are a number of options available, including video intercoms which allow you to also see who is at the door. Intercom systems will not only increase security can be a helpful device for communicating with family members within your home.
