Home security systems are based on the simple notion of safeguarding access points into a home using sensors that communicate with a control panel or command centre located in a convenient place within the premises.
The sensors are generally installed in front and back doors, as well as easily accessible windows, especially those that open, especially those at ground level. Motion sensors can be used to secure open spaces within the premises.
According to several studies, houses without security systems are up to three times more likely to be burglarized than those with professionally monitored systems, because thieves are opportunistic by nature and look for easy targets.
