Home Alarm Systems - Home Security Specialist Mike Jagger wrote an excellent critique of one typical home alarm system installation, explaining along the way why so many home alarm systems are useless. As he concludes:
Here's a summary of for home alarm system installation:
- Hide your control panel - As Mike says, "It should take longer to find your control panel than your entry delay time."
- Locate siren far from control panel - So crooks can't follow the sound to the panel.
- Keep alarm phone jack, transformer, and control panel out of sight - Don't help crooks plan how to disable your system. Keep everything hidden.
Another point Mike makes:
If this is true, then unsecured outside access to the phone line is also a risk with these systems.
