In yesteryears and even today, burglary has remained one of the most frequent crimes occurring these days. Most burglars use techniques that make their acts not readily noticeable, like trying to sneak into your front door to gain access to your property without getting caught. Usually these people tend to use acts to draw your attention away and make you less wary of the situation.
What is something you could do, especially when you are the only person living in the house? What can you do to deter these acts? One possible solution is by installing driveway alarms within the perimeter of your house. These systems can either be an indoor or outdoor solution that will alert you of possible property intrusion. Other alarms can reach up to 30ft but most units can be connected to a relay for a wider coverage.
Doorbells are definitely part of a typical modern household. This ubiquitous device gives us an alarm when a visitor or someone is in front of the door, similar to knocking the door. But door bells could be much more convenient as it can be heard easily, depending on the configuration of the door bell system.
There are two types of door bells, one is wired and the other is wireless. It can emit a buzzing, ringing, or with a modern device a customized tone can be set by the owner. A wired doorbell can be connected only to one line from the main switch to the receiver whereas a wireless doorbell can be connected to multiple receivers thus giving users the ability to install speakers in each area of the house.
A wireless type gives users the luxury of ease of installation and clutter-less setup. Most units have built-in storage which can be used in downloading tones or songs to the system. More ideas here at GadgetShack.
