Home Security-Why Motion Alarms Are So Effective

Somewhere in the United States in the next 4 minutes, the length of time it will take you to read this article, 12 home burglaries will occur-that’s three per minute. How do you know that your home is not going to be next? There are steps you can take to prevent home burglary. But the fact of the matter is that if the burglar wants to get into your home badly enough, he can and he will. Almost no home security product will stop him.

Once he does get in the statistics show that he will spend less than 15 minutes inside your house looking for items of value that are small and can easily be pawned for quick cash. That would include mostly jewelry and handguns. Of course if he sees cash or credit cards or collectibles such as coin or stamp collections, he will take those as well.

Of all the products in the home security industry, security alarms, also known as burglar alarms are one of the most popular. Once activated they can sound an alarm that’s as loud as 120 dB.

Estimates are as many as 90% of all burglars are first or second time offenders and don’t have the moxie or experience to withstand the shrill sound of a burglar alarm. It is one of the reasons why motion-activated alarms are so effective.

Motion activated alarms all work pretty much the same way using passive infrared resistance or PIR to detect the slightest movement. It is impossible to avoid. They “sense movement within 5 feet through all mediums such as walls, doors, and glass. The motion detector also detects the slightest movement in the air within a range of 10-15 feet.”

One of the more popular motion activated alarms for home security uses “radar wave sense technology” that is so sensitive that a bird flying by in the protected area can set the alarm off.

There is a reason why motion-activated alarms are the number one selling burglar alarm in the country. There are a variety of them on the market and all of them work extremely well at sounding an alarm when a protected area is violated.

Don’t leave your home’s security to chance when you can protect it with the most popular and effective of all burglar alarms-a motion activated alarm. They are loud enough to scare most burglars away and possibly alert your Barking Dog Alarm makes the sounds of a barking dog to scare burglars away.
