Most Popular Home Security Tools
To everybody that owns a home, and that is 78,000,000 plus Americans, home security should be a big issue because of the threat of home burglary. One out of every six homes on an annual basis gets burglarized. Home burglary is one of the fastest growing crimes in the country because the payoff is high and the risk of getting caught is low.
Homeowners don’t do much to protect their property either. Close to 60% of all home burglaries happen through unsecured windows and doors-homeowners just leave them unlocked. So the popularity of home burglaries shouldn’t come as a surprise.
The popularity of home security tools and home security alarms is what has made the home security industry such a fast-growing part of our economy. In this article, we will discuss some of the most popular home security tools so you can see if one of them might work in your situation.
One of the most popular home security alarms is called the electronic watchdog, a.k.a. the barking dog alarm. Once it is plugged in, the “radar wave sense” technology can sense movement through glass, doors, and walls and alert you of an intruder. The volume and a radar sensitivity range you are both adjustable. Once movement is detected, the sound of a barking dog starts and gets louder as the intruder gets closer. There is a keychain remote control that can be used to arm and disarm the unit from a distance. This flexible home security alarm can be used in a home office, factory, warehouse, or any place that you need protection from burglary. It can also be used as an alarm or chime instead of the barking dog sounds.
One of the more popular and least expensive security tools is a fake security camera that has a motion detection sensor and motorized pan movement along with the blinking 24-hour red LED lights. It is battery-operated and requires no wiring. It installs in minutes and adjusts to almost any angle. When motion is detected, the camera moves back and forth just like the real thing that costs hundreds of dollars more.
And one of my favorite security tools is the door stop wedge alarm. The wedge design can physically block door entry and the convenient anti-slide pad prevents floor slippage. The top of the wedge has the sensor that can be adjusted the high, medium or low settings. When pressure is applied to the sensor as in a door opening, the 125 dB alarm sounds. This product is not only great for home and apartment applications but for dorm rooms and travel applications as well.
This Fake Security Camera is a great value besides being so realistic looking.
The Door Stop Alarm sounds a 125 DB alarm when activated.
