How to make home security solutions according to individual needs and budget? Below we will give an example to explain it. The house is with 3 bed rooms, 2 bath rooms, 1 kitchen room, 1 study room and 2 balcony.
The principle of making home security solution.
1.Plan and make external security firstly. In security alarm industry, it is perimeter security zones. The security protection areas are fence, wall, gate and house entrances including door, windows and balcony. The connection areas between the upper and lower floors, between house and neighbor’s house.
2.Then plan and make internal security. In security alarm industry, it is interior zones and fire zones. The security protection areas are aisle, hall, living room, kitchen room, bed room, bath room.
3.The alarm control panel installing principle:
A.Install it at place with telephone interface and hide it. Do not install it near the door or where theft can easy find and destroy it.
B.If the alarm control panel can not be installed at hidden place, then a PIR motion sensor should be installed to monitor the alarm control panel.
C.It is best to install the siren strobe outdoor and far from the alarm control panel.
D.If the siren strobe can not be installed outdoor, it is best to use wireless siren strobe and avoid theft finding the alarm control panel.
Step 1: Define the protection range according to the house situation.
From below drawing, we can know the most easy to be invaded place is two balconies, then is the out door. And kitchen room windows, study room windows cause these rooms are always vacant at night time and can be entrance of theft. Bath room, child room, main bed room are listed as protection areas with priority code.
All protection areas are listed with priority code from 10 to 1 as below.
Step 2: Define defense zones and defense way, equipment for each zone.
After protection areas and zone is defined, the defense equipment quantity and types should be defined according to the community security environment and family environment, behavior. The above home security solution design for example, we can use different equipment for different level defense. The equipment can be added or deducted according to budget and needs.
1.Simple type installation:
With lowest budget and good security environment, we make simple type installation. Only gate No.7, balconies No.9 and No.10, kitchen room No.6, study room No.5 are defensed. Wireless door magnetism contact is used for gate No.7, kitchen room No.6 and study room No.5. PIR motion sensor is used for living room and bedroom to against intrusion from two balconies No.9 and No.10.
The alarm system used is 1pc PIR motion sensor, 3 pcs door or windows open contact, one set alarm control panel with 1 PIR, 1 door contact, 2 keypad, remote controller.
The functions of the simple type alarm system.
A.When the gate or kitchen room window, study room window is opened, (door or window is leaving more than 1 cm from the door frame or window frame) or someone is entering into living room or bedroom from the balcony, the alarm system will go off and siren strobe makes sounder and lighting for warning.
B.Backup battery is built-in and can work for 8-16 hours at AC off time.
C.PIR motion sensor is used for zone 9 living room and home arm can be set when someone is at home. So, the living room PIR will not trigger alarm when someone is at home.
D.If no one is at home, away home arm should be set and intrusion is detected at living room, the alarm goes off.
The cons: When magnetic contact is used for windows security, the windows can not be opened even at summer time.
2.Basic type installation:
Use wireless door windows magnetic switch for all doors and windows. Use 1 PIR motion sensor for addition of living room security protection.
The functions of the basic type alarm system.
A.When the gate or kitchen room window, study room window, bathroom window, child room window is opened, (door or window is leaving more than 1 cm from the door frame or window frame) or someone is entering into living room or bedroom from the balcony, the alarm system will go off and siren strobe makes sounder and lighting for warning.
B. Backup battery is built-in and can work for 8-16 hours at AC off time.
C. PIR motion sensor is used for zone 9 living room and home arm can be set when someone is at home. So, the living room PIR will not trigger alarm when someone is at home.
D. If no one is at home, away home arm should be set and intrusion is detected at living room, the alarm goes off.
Cons: When magnetic contact is used for windows security, the windows can not be opened even at summer time. When someone is at home, home arm should be set.
3.Practical type installation:
Cause the basic type alarm system using windows contact for windows protection and the windows can not be opened at arm status, the curtain PIR is used to replace windows contact. The curtain PIR is with direction recognition and alarm goes off if theft entering from outdoor. The alarm will not go off if home owners is walking at home.
Cons: The balcony security protection is not enough. The theft can enter into balcony without alarm going off. It alarms until theft goes into the house.
4.High grade type installation:
Use infrared fence as balcony and windows intrusion prevention security equipment. The infrared fence is installed outdoor and can stop intrusion outdoor. Smoke detectors and gas leakage sensors are used as well for fire prevention.
Solar power wireless infrared fence can be used. It is easy to install and there is wireless to wired transceiver for connection with any third party alarm control panel.
Smoke alarm and gas alarm should be set as 24 hours zone and not controlled by arm disarm setting.
5.Complete type installation:
With infrared fence installed outdoor for windows and door entrance prevention. And add outdoor PIR detector as well at balcony to ensure the alarm going off when the theft is at balcony. Add wireless siren strobe for warning and neighbor notice. So, home is more secured.
6.Thorough security solution with smart home
Smart home house appliance switch is added to complete type installation alarm system. The house appliance such as air conditioner, electric cooker, electric heater can be remote turned on or turned off by mobile phone, remote, smart home app or telephone calling.
