alarm wireless systemThe Z wave device connects to a remote device such as a laptop or mobile phone. For example, if an owner forgets to arm the security system before leaving home, she can turn it on from her computer at work or from her mobile phone. The Pulse system can also be set up for video monitoring of the interior and exterior of the home. Customers also receive an email or text alert if an interior or exterior siren is activated or a smoke detector goes off. An exterior siren goes off outside of the home; however, you can also hear it inside of the home. The reverse is true of an interior siren; however, the sound level will not be very pronounced outside of the home. The advantage of having audible sirens, whether the sound is louder inside or outside, is debatable. On one hand, the siren lets intruders know that police have been alerted, which may deter them from taking any further action, while some intruders may still proceed. Audible exterior sirens are also beneficial if you live in a populated neighborhood with neighbors close by, as they will hear the alarm; however, the audibility of the siren may be marginally beneficial if you live in a remote area where neighbors’ homes are out of range. Many of today’s security cameras have something called a motion detector installed. This is—as it sounds—a device that’s capable of detecting movement.

security cameras for small businessMany surveillance cameras and audio bugs emit radio waves and can be identified by a standard RF radio frequency detection device. Conduct a “sweep” of your home with your bug detector. Surveillance devices are often hidden in walls or ceilings, so look for any spots that appear to be spackled or recently concealed. However, with the decreasing size of surveillance equipment, illegal surveillance can be concealed virtually anywhere. Household objects such as pens, clocks, lamps and even watches may contain devices to see and hear what you are doing. Closely examine your home's windows, as the exterior of windows are excellent places for installing illegal surveillance devices since no one has to break into your home to install them.
