By Scott Rodgers

Home alarm systems are responses to rising rate of burglary. Apart from banks and depository, your homes are one of the best places to preserve your most treasured things and investments. Hence a system is needed to protect your home from intruders.

Your alarm goes wasted if you are unable to hear its sound. Ensure, you place the bell in the center most part of the house so that it's sound is noted by you. Furthermore, don't feel unsafe when electricity is not there at your place. The home alarm system provides you 24x7 service as it is operated on battery if the mains supply fails. But for that, timely check the system batteries and replace them if they are discharged.

The only thing that is to be taken care of is install the sounder or the buzzer at a place where it is easily and loudly heard. This buzzer operates with a battery. So, you are safe even in the events of power failure. But make sure the batteries are replaced timely.

The sounder is further connected to the circuit consisting of switches. The circuit remains closed when all the doors and windows connected to the circuit are closed. And, as any of the door or window opens, the alarm gets triggered.

Switch mainly constitutes of a magnet and a relay fondly called as switch. The magnet- switch loop maintains the connection. As long as the connection persists, the circuit remains closed and as the two are separated, the connectivity is broken thereby activating the alarm.

Moreover, the magnet is screwed at the doors and windows whereas the switch is placed at the window or door frame. As the door gets opened, the magnet and the switch get separated thereby triggering the sounder.

Moreover, the buzzer also contain a switch that is used to deactivate the sounder. In addition to this, you need to reset the complete system for the next time. Many home alarm systems also have features like glass- break sensors and motion detectors.

Home alarm systems also associate additional fees and is just not about the initial cost. But it is better to bear the high cost of the system than to take risk with our precious life and depository as well. - 29857
