security products the basics explained top

The vast array of security products available on the market today can be quite overwhelming to say the least. Security products can be wireless or hard wired, optional or required or simple or complex. Determining which security product is right for your building or business need can be difficult enough, and it becomes more complicated when you have to choose between the assortment of models that are available for each product. Wading through all of the available information can be overwhelming. For this reason choosing only the most basic home security products can greatly simplify the process. The control panel, keypad, access control sensors and an audible or
visible alarm are some of the basic security products that are used in just about every security system.

The control panel is one of the most important security products available as it is the heart of any security system. All of the wiring for the other security products meets at the control panel and the entire system is tied
together at this location. Without this valuable component, the security system would not function properly.

The keypad is another of many security products that exists in just about every security system. The keypad is where the user interacts with the system. The system can be activated and deactivated at this location. The keypad is also where the system displays messages for the property owner. If there has been a breach of security while the owner is away or if one of the security products is malfunctioning, the keypad will display important messages indicating the sourfe and cause of failure. The other purpose that the keypad plays is to display the current status of the system.

Access control sensors are another security product that are critical to the function of a security system. These security products are used to detect if a door or window is opened while the security system is activated. When
these sensors are triggered an alarm will sound either immediately or on a delay. The reason that most security systems incorporate a delay is to enable the deactivation of the system upon returning to their home.

Lastly, an audible alarm and strobe lights are other security products that are commonly used. These security products can be used separately or in conjunction with each other. The importance of these components is that they
alert the owner as well as occupants of a breach or intrusion. In most cases a triggered alarm is enough to cause the perpetrator to vacate the property as quickly as possible.

Not all security products are necessary. Many security products such as motion detectors and security cameras are optional while security products such as the control panel, keypad, access control sensors and audible or visual alarms are necessary for the system to function properly.
