All security systems work on the same basic principle of securing entry points, like doors and windows, as well as interior space containing valuables like art, computers, and coin collections. Regardless of the size of your premises, or the number of doors and windows or interior rooms a homeowner decides to protect, the only real difference is in the number of security components deployed throughout the home and monitored by the control panel.
The most basic definition of any security system is found in its name. It is literally a means or method by which something is secured through a system of interworking components and devices.
In this instance, we're talking about the alarm security systems, which are networks of integrated electronic devices working together with a central control panel to protect against burglars and other potential intruders.
A typical alarm security system includes:
• A control panel, which is the primary controller of a security system
• Door and window sensors
• Motion sensors, both interior and exterior
• Wired or wireless security cameras
• A high-decibel siren or alarm
• A yard sign and window stickers
