smoke detector motion sensor

Most of the time, when someone utters the words home security, people immediately think of motion sensors available in Philippines. Although motion sensors contribute largely to home safety, it’s not the only source of security that you can avail. The truth is aside from burglars, there are several other things that can harm us – like fire and electrical accidents. This means that when it comes to home security, you should be able to protect you and your belongings from different hazards.

Thankfully, there are several alarm sensors that will alert you of a possible danger at home. Check some of them below:

Contact Sensors

Contact sensors are used to notify you when someone tries to enter your house through a window or through the door. Also called magnetic sensors, this is one of the most common types of alarm sensors. It has two parts; the first one contains a magnet and the second part contains a switch. This switch will be turned on when it is placed near the magnet. You have to put one part in the frame of the window or door and the other one, on the window or door, itself. The two parts are positioned right next to each other.

How does it work? If an intruder slides the window or opens the door, the two parts will be separated. Since they are no longer located together, the switch is turned off and, because the circuit was broken, the control panel will sound the alarm. It works for both normal and forced entries. This means whether the intruder uses a key or forces his way inside, you will still be notified.

Glass Break Detectors

When you buy contact sensors, make sure to purchase glass break detectors as well because they complement each other very well. Depending on the alarm sensor that you buy, it can either detect the sound or vibrations of a breaking glass. You can use this individually on a window where you cannot use contact sensors. If you want to feel more secured, you can also use it along with contact sensors. Just make sure to install it on the wall opposite or next to the glass window.

Smoke Detector

Aside from intruders, you also have to protect your home from other dangers such as fire. There are different ways to protect your house from threats such as this. One way is by purchasing and installing smoke alarms. This security device can help detect smoke and give you plenty of time to extinguish the source or vacate the vicinity.

Smoke alarms are mostly powered by batteries. Don’t worry because it lasts long and will alert you once the battery is running out. Although, of course, it’s still better to check them regularly to know that they are working properly at all times.

Flood Sensors

Did you ever went to bed one night and woke up to a flooded house? Don’t let this happen to you by installing flood sensors ahead of a storm. This way, you can sleep well knowing that if a flooding happens, you will be notified and you can evacuate before it turns dangerous. Flood sensors are usually installed on the floors where it can detect the existence of liquids. If ever this was caused by damage to your water pipes, then you can contact someone to repair it before it gets worse.

Home security is not just exclusive to motion sensors and possible break ins. There are several alarm sensors available to ensure that you will always be safe in your home. Check the list above are review your options.
