Protect Your Home With A Security System

A security system is a collection of physical and electrical components that protect a house. Smart security cameras are connected to Wi-Fi, allowing us to broadcast images from our system remotely and receive alerts when they detect motion, persons, or parcels. Numerous cameras feature infrared or colour night vision, cloud or local storage, and two-way audio, allowing us to communicate with whoever is being recorded. In addition, some cameras integrate with intelligent platforms, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

Movement Sensor

Place motion sensors in a home’s main entryway or hallway on the ground floor so they can detect motion and warn us when our home security system is armed. Unfortunately, some motion sensors are pet-sensitive, so they do not always activate when our dog passes.

Access Sensor

Entry sensors, also known as contact sensors, consist of two components: one for the window or door and another for the frame. These sensors utilise magnets to determine whether one of these openings is open or closed. If the sensor detects an open door or window, it notifies us. Pollock Home Security recommends installing entry sensors on ground-floor windows or doors. The majority are battery-powered, and many include adhesive backings for straightforward installation.

Glass break sensor

Sometimes, instead of opening windows in the traditional method, intruders smash them open to avoid activating the entrance sensors. However, a glass break sensor detects the sound of glass breaking and sends us a cellphone warning.

Sirens exist in home security systems both as standalone devices and as components of other devices, such as the base station (which we will discuss later). In addition, Sires is frequently synchronised with alarms designed to deter intruders and alert neighbours.


To arm or disarm a security system, we often enter a code on a keypad installed on the wall or placed on a flat surface.

Why shouldn’t we have key fobs for our security system as well? We already have them for our automobiles. Thanks to key fobs, we can disable or arm our home security system without using a keyboard. They’re ideal when we’re upstairs and don’t feel like leaving our bed!

A panic button is a simple and quick means to contact emergency services, such as the police, hospital, or even the fire department if something goes wrong. As with critical fobs, panic buttons are not fixed in any particular location, but one is always available in an emergency. Therefore, we recommend that everyone maintain at least one on their nightstand.

Base station

Base stations synchronise all linked devices with our mobile application, allowing us to receive the notifications as mentioned earlier. Imagine it as Grand Central Station, the passageway through which trains (IoT security devices) pass.

Yard signs

Many security systems additionally provide yard signs and window decals to promote the presence of a security system. Typically, thieves will flee if they spot a security system. Thus it is advantageous to have these warnings.

We recommend that every home be equipped with smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. This inexpensive device alerts us if the air quality in our house gets hazardous.
