With so many home security system options available, it can be difficult to decide which system is the best for your needs. Before choosing a home security system, be sure to evaluate and understand you needs and goals.  In addition to basic home security, you should also consider including additional affordable options such as motion detectors, security cameras, fire detection and carbon monoxide monitoring. Start your search with 1st Alarm Midland TX to ensure you get the right home security system to maximize the protection for you, your family and your home.

Basic home security systems

The simplest type of home security you can have for your Midland TX home is an alarm activated when a door is opened. If someone comes through the door without first deactivating the home security system, the system will trigger a loud alarm. The loud noise will scare most intruders away. The downside to such a simple security system is that someone may not hear the alarm going off.

Monitored home security systems

If you want something a bit more secure than a door alarm, a monitored home security system may be your best option. These systems include sensors on key entry points (windows, doors, etc.) which connect to a central control panel. A keypad attached to the control panel allows the Midland TX homeowner to program and control the alarm system. If someone tries to enter the home at a sensored point, the alarm will be triggered if it is not disarmed in time. The control panel also sends out an alert to the monitoring service, who tries to contact the homeowner and the local authorities.

Home security systems with motion detectors

Motion detectors will trigger lights or alarms if motion is detected within a monitored perimeter. In the past, motion detectors got a bad reputation for being triggered if a cat or dog walked by. Technology has improved detectors, however, preventing these kinds of false alarms.

Home security systems with video surveillance

By including a video surveillance system as part of your home security system it is impossible to watch every area within your Midland TX home no matter where you are.. A home security system with video surveillance cameras allow you to see what is happening around your property remotely using any computer or smartphone.

Security cameras, placed in optimum positions around your property, can capture footage of people entering and exiting your property from many angles. Hidden security cameras placed around the interior of your property can tell you if your nanny or housekeeper are doing their jobs correctly.
