Best Nashville Home Alarm Systems

Safeguarding your home from potential threats is easy with the right at home alarm system. There are various devices and services on the market that provide multiple layers of protection for your family and personal assets. With so many options available it could be difficult to choose what level of protection you need. We've broken down the best alarm systems for your home and how they offer protection. 

Monitored System

A monitored system is one of the most commonly used home alarm systems. The system is hooked up throughout the house, either hardwired or wirelessly, and provides 24/7 access to assistance throughout the year. Typically, when the alarm is tripped, an agent calls to identify the problem. The homeowner can confirm it is a false alarm or that a break-in is taking place. In the instance there is a need for assistance, local authorities are called to the scene. Monitored systems have progressed over the years with the advancement of technology. When choosing an option, look for a customizable system that offers one-touch police, medical, and fire panic buttons as well as a duress code. 

HD Camera Security System

Businesses use HD security cameras to safeguard their property and equity, but this type of equipment is also useful for protecting the home. The most obvious benefit of the camera is the ability to install it almost anywhere in or outside the house to see activity in real-time. Some homeowners may choose to hide their cameras, but often a visible camera works well to deter potential thieves. Knowing they are being watched, would-be intruders are often deterred from illegal behavior by the idea of their behavior being caught on camera. Having cameras installed helps with gathering evidence in the case of a break-in.  Look for a system that features HD Video and 2-way audio to find out what’s going on at home anytime, anywhere. 

Glass Break Detector

A glass break detector is a sensor device used to trigger alarms in the case of broken glass from a window or door. These monitors use microphones sensitive to noise or vibrations that come from glass. If these oscillations exceed a certain threshold, the sensor triggers an alarm. It's an extra layer of security that works well with a home monitoring system. Often residential homes install glass break detectors in areas that might be hard to see like a basement window or side door. They are also useful if your current HD camera system has blind spots and you want extra protection against burglary. 

Door/Window Contact Alarm

Door and window contact alarms are ideal for reinforcing home security. When a thief picks a lock or tries to climb through a window, these sensors sound the alarm. Some sensors emit a loud siren; others work best when coupled with a home monitoring system. In the event of a break-in, the door and window alarm will send an alert to your device allowing your agents to contact local authorities for assistance. 

Motion Detector

A motion sensor/detector is the main device that detects when someone is in your home that shouldn't be. Commonly, these devices use multiple technologies to sensor movement in the area. If tripped, a signal is sent to your primary security system alerting you of an intruder in the house. From there you can have your agent call local authorities to inform them of the threat in your home. It's important to note; these sensors are designed to work when you are not at home and are activated when you tell your main control device that you are out of the house. Most motion detectors are pet-friendly up to a certain weight limit.
