How to choose a home alarm
Do you need to understand all the sensors, parameters and numerous digits of the characteristics of security alarms to choose the right kit for the house?

If you want to thoroughly understand the issue, then of course. But we offer an easier option. Read the recommendations of the experts of the internet security hypermarket "Forter" that will help to buy the optimal model of home alarm.
And in the end, of course, we will offer our top three leaders: the top 3 alarms for an apartment and a private house.

Where to start: Define the goals

Simply put, first of all it is necessary to determine why it is planned to install alarms in housing. If you see the vulnerabilities of your apartment or private home, you will be able to clearly articulate the tasks for a potential security system.

What to consider:

The presence and location of potential intruder infiltration sites (windows, doors, manholes in the attic and basement);

The number, area and configuration of the premises to be protected;
The presence of animals in the house, which should not be triggered by an alarm;

Opportunities for installation, laying of cables;

How it is planned to organize the protection of the dwelling: independently or with the participation of a security organization;

from what dangers are planned protection: penetration, fire, gas leak, water.
Understanding all these nuances will help to correctly choose the type of alarm, the number and types of sensors with the appropriate option of connecting to the system.

Type of alarm

There are three main types of alarms on the way of warning of a danger:

Autonomous. Works without signal transmission to external devices. That is, the system is able to detect and recognize the alarm, as well as to launch a siren (light-beep signal) to attract attention to the object and scare away strangers when trying to penetrate.

The remote. It connects to a centralized security remote, where a warning signal is received when a break-in, a fire or other monitored situation occurs. After interpreting the signal, a task force of the security agency is sent to the place.

GSM alarm. In the event of an alarm, it transmits a signal via a cellular network (SMS or push notification). Such systems can not only send messages to selected phone numbers, but also connect to a centralized remote. In addition to operational alert, this kit allows remotely from the key fob to turn on and off the siren, put the dwelling under guard and remove.

In our opinion, the best choice is GSM-signaling. This is the most advanced type of system, which can combine all the advantages of the previous and at the same time have no flaws.

Choosing sensors

These are the basic elements of the security system that control the situation in the allotted space or at the point and in case of an alarming situation transmit information about it to the central console.

Today, a large list of sensors are available to protect your home from various threats. Sensors are able to detect:

Breaking down
Changing volume
The presence of gas and combustion products;
temperature changes.
Sensors of any type can be connected to modern home alarms. This means that if necessary, one system can include several options for alarm: security, fire, gas leakage and flooding.

If you've carefully approached the set of goals, as we described above, you will have no trouble finding a suitable set of sensors.

What are the options to look out for

Here are a few more nuances to look at when choosing a home alarm:

Number of sensors connected at the same time
Number of communication channels
Availability of backup power (additional battery);
Radio range
The presence of an alarm system against external attacks;
Filtering false positives
Self-diagnosis system;
the ability to connect street sensors if the alarm is bought in a private home.
We also recommend that you check with the consultants about the difficulty of setting the alarm, the availability of a convenient mobile application for remote control. Usability is an important factor for household security systems.
