Does Your Security System Need Motion Sensors?

Posted By 0jifdnguu On February 16, 2012 @ 12:00 am In Business Security,Home Security | No Comments

Motion sensors are a popular option for both home security systems and business security systems.

Motion sensors can detect movement when your security system is activated. It’s a great line of defense against intruders. Motion sensors detect the intruder’s movement, which sets off the alarm.

So are motion sensors right for your home or business? To answer this question, you first have to know more about this technology.

Motion sensors have three main components:

  1. A Sensor – Detects movement.
  2. A Controller – Controls the alarm system.
  3. An Alarm Speaker – Makes the alarm sound.

These three parts work in unison to monitor and alert you of movement. Most often, motion sensors are positioned near doorways, windows, hallways and staircases.

Motion sensors are a tricky security feature. Pets and small children can easily set off an alarm with this feature.

To be safe, it’s important to work with a reputable home or business security company. They can properly install the motion sensors and educate you and your family on how to properly use the system.
