4 Types of Alarm Systems Commonly Used in Suffolk County Homes

In recent months, crime rates have been surging in the Suffolk County area. Every time you flip on the news or scroll through your newsfeed, it seems like you see story after story about local businesses or homes in nearby towns being burglarized. Even if you live in a neighborhood that has a long-standing reputation of having a low crime rate and for being safe, with the increased incidence of criminal activity, there’s no telling if or when you will become a victim. Like a lot of Coram, NY homeowners, you may have that “it will never happen to me” sense of security; however, the truth is, a break-in can happen to you, and it can happen at any time.

Fortunately, there’s a way that you can protect your Coram home. How? – By installing a security system. Today’s home security systems are more advanced than ever before and feature technologies that not only deter criminals, but also monitor your loved ones when you aren’t home, assess and report any changes in environmental conditions in your home (smoke/fire, carbon dioxide, leaks, etc.), and can even automate your lights, locks, and other features in your house.

If you’re interested in purchasing an effective security system, it’s a good idea to start looking around before you buy so that you’re aware of the different options that are available. Here’s a look at four of the alarm systems that Suffolk County homeowners commonly use in their homes.

Unmonitored Alarm Systems

Unmonitored alarm systems work by sounding a loud, blaring siren that can be heard both on the inside and around the perimeter of your property. These systems can feature a variety of components, such as broken glass sensors, a control panel, motion sensors, window and door sensors, and even smoke detectors and CO2 detectors. When the sensors are triggered, the alarms sound, notifying anyone inside your home or in the surrounding area of a potential threat. The idea is that when the alarm is heard, someone will alert the authorities; a family member, or a neighbor, for example.

While they rely on others to report a perceived threat, unmonitored alarm systems provide a decent level of protection. They’re also less expensive than more advanced security systems, such as monitored alarm systems, as you don’t have to pay any subscription or other ongoing costs. Some unmonitored systems work with smartphones so that you can remotely monitor your Coram, NY home.

Monitored Alarm Systems

A monitored security system is similar to an unmonitored system in that it is comprised of a variety of components, such as motion, glass breakage, window, and door sensors, as well as CO2, smoke, and leak detectors. When the system is tripped, loud audible alerts can be heard inside and around your home; however, professionally trained call center operators whose job is to monitor your system are also alerted when danger is detected, and they automatically alert the appropriate first responders. For example, if a burglary is detected, the local Suffolk County police will be notified and dispatched, or if a smoke alarm is detected, the Coram fire department will be contacted.

Monitored alarm systems can be equipped with a variety of features, some of which include:

  • Mobile applications that you can use to remotely monitor your home via a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
  • Cellular back-up, which prevents landline interferences; weather disturbances, for example.
  • Continuous alarm system monitory by way of uninterrupted power
  • Alarms that make enough noise to scare away burglars before they have the opportunity to damage your property or steal your possessions
  • Instant notifications to the authorities when a threat is detected

Wired Alarm Systems

With wired security systems, entry points to your home, including windows and doors, will be connected to the main control panel with wires. Low-voltage electrical currents flow between the security devices and the control panel. When the alarm system is activated and entry points are closed, the electrical current easily flows between the hard-wired detectors and the control panel; however, when the entry points are opened, the flow of electricity is disrupted, the system is triggered, and an alarm will sound. In addition to these entry point sensors, other security features can be installed, such as a closed-circuit TV (CCTV), keypads, and motion detectors.

Wired security systems have been proven to be highly reliable and are harder to hack than wireless alarm systems. Compared to other types of systems, they’re also relatively easy to maintain and cost-effective.

Wireless Alarm Systems

Wireless security systems are similar to their wired counterpart, but as the name indicates, these systems are wireless. Entry points to your home are outfitted with sensors and instead of wires, these alarms rely on radio frequency transmitters, which send signals to the main control panel. If the sensors are triggered, a signal will be sent to the control panel and an alarm will sound. Like wired alarms, wireless security systems can be outfitted with a variety of devices, including CCTV and smoke or CO2 detectors.

Wireless alarms are pretty easy to install and don’t require drilling or making permanent changes to the structure of your Coram, NY home. Since they aren’t hardwired, wireless systems are easy to move, upgrade, or expand. Additionally, no wires mean that there’s nothing for would-be intruders to cut.
