Determining You Residential Security Needs
The first step in designing a security system is to have our one of our experienced security consultants evaluate your home and property perimeters to ensure that all areas of risk are properly identified. We will ask questions and listen to your security concerns. Our goal is not to sell you additional equipment that you don’t want, but to ensure that we provide the best advice that will give keep you and your family safe.
Then based on our findings, we design a security solution that keeps you protected and fits within your budget. We’ll evaluate which equipment is right for you, and then walk you through how to use your residential security system with personalized, professional installation. From assessing your needs to selecting, installing, and monitoring your home security, American Alarm Systems is with you every step of the way.
Choosing your Residential Security Equipment
All of our residential security solutions begin with the control panel, which is the brain of your home security system. It allows homeowners to control and monitor security by accessing information from various sensors, including door and window sensors, locks, thermostats, and more. We offer a number of different panels and features that will best fit your security needs. All of our control panels have high resolution, 7-inch touchscreens with features like one-touch arm stay or away. Once you’ve selected a control panel, we’ll construct a system based on answers to some of the following questions about your residential security needs.
How many doors and windows do you want to monitor?
Once we have the main panel selected, we determine how many perimeter doors and windows you want to place sensors on. At a minimum we recommend sensors on the following:
- Front door or main entrance. 34% of all burglars enter through your front door, so this is the first place to start when it comes to deterring an intruder.
- Rear door. If your front door is protected, you can bet the thief will probably circle around back, where unsecured entries are hidden far away from the street and prying eyes.
- Garage entry door. Most homes do not have their garage doors secured properly, providing easy access to would-be thieves.
If you want a higher level of protection, then we recommend that you add sensors to all perimeter openings.
What special needs does your property or family have?
Once the main panel and perimeter sensors are installed, it is time to determine what other security devices can enhance protection. Infrared motion detectors track movements of burglars inside homes and provide additional protection if a door or window sensor does not cause an alarm or is bypassed. Glass break detectors will detect if someone breaks a window. Smoke detectors, carbon monoxide sensors, and flood sensors protect your family and home 24/7, alerting you to unsafe conditions or emergencies. We also offer panic buttons that can notify emergency services immediately if pressed. All of these sensors and more can be used to provide a comprehensive approach to your residential security needs and superior protection for your home and family.
