What Kind of Alarm Should I Get To Protect My Home?

It brand name doesn’t matter as long as it's good quality. Alarm systems use basic electronic components and wiring is a series of open and closed switches. A hard-wired system is the most reliable for a newly constructed single family home. Each door and window alarm contact is supported by its own pair of wires back to the alarm panel and can be isolated as the exact point of entry. Hard-wired system wiring and door and window contacts are imbedded into the door and window frames and thereby protected from tampering.                                    (see my Home Alarm Systems webpage).

Another option is a wireless system that sends a radio-frequency signal back to the alarm panel instead of by wires. The wireless devices are battery operated and therefore are larger and mounted externally on the door or window point of entry. They are cheaper and easier to install, but suffer from issues of tampering, battery service, and radio frequency (RF) signal interference. Budget usually dictates what system is appropriate for your home.
