There are two main types of home security systems.

  • The unmonitored home security system is the most popular and is cost effective. As soon as a burglar breaks into your home, a loud siren is triggered. The siren will most likely scare off any intruder, but this system does not contact the police automatically. This system is recommended for people who have close neighbours, since it is up to them to contact the police for you.
  • The monitored home security system will contact a call center for you. After a burglar breaks in, the system waits 30-45 seconds until a call is made. The call center will call you to retrieve a password, and if unsuccessful they will call the police. This system is recommended for anyone who doesn't have close neighbours, or simply wants extra protection.
  • Both unmonitored and monitored security systems can be set up with other safety devices. Such as:
      • Smoke detectors
      • Camera
      • Video Display
      • Carbon monoxide detector
      • Motion detectors
