Motion sensors aren’t just an addition to a security system; they’re a linchpin for a truly secure property. Even something as simple as a motion detector light can reduce your risk of being burglarized. A motion detector can tell you when someone enters a room, approaches a door and can be set to tell the difference between an intruder and your house cat.
Southwest Security includes motion sensors in their custom-designed home security systems to ensure maximum protection and minimum hassle for you.
A security system that’s continually giving off false alarms does nothing for your peace of mind. Motion sensors have improved as technology has advanced, and those in use for security systems now are far less likely to set off false alarms. They are, however, likely to catch an intruder in the act of approaching your home.
The main purpose of a motion detector is to sense an intruder and send an alert to the system’s control panel. Motion sensors react to situations such as:
You can customize the placement of motion detectors to provide the specific coverage that will give you the greatest peace of mind. Whether you want a motion sensor to tell you when someone’s approaching the back door, one in the main hallway or several to guard specific windows, motion sensors are a key aspect of smart security.
With burglar alarm systems installed, a home not only has a better chance of being ignored by criminals, but you have a greater sense of security. Motion detectors can be programmed to ignore pets, connected to lights and even hooked to a video monitoring system. If someone approaches your home, a remote video camera can capture their image to be passed to law enforcement later.
The presence of a security system makes your home 300% less likely to be targeted by criminals. Adding a multi-purpose set of motion detectors to your system will not only help you protect what matters most, but can be included in home automation to adjust temperatures, lighting and more.
