An integrated alarm system of alarms provides an audible, visual or at least some other kind of visible warning sign about some sort of impending danger or threat. Many modern alarms are now fitted with cameras that can broadcast live images to a central monitoring facility where the camera feed can be viewed by trained personnel. Alarms can be of different types and there is no dearth of them in the market.
Home Security Systems is generally of two kinds: those which are based on wired and those which are based on wireless technology. Wired systems are less costly than their wireless counterparts and they are also more reliable and durable, though wireless alarms system can also be quite satisfactory as well. Wireless home security system can be fitted almost anywhere in the house such as in the kitchen, bedroom, hallways, stairwells and so forth. The wired system requires a professional installation, which can be expensive and might take few weeks, but these can be removed and replaced by the customer whenever he wants.
A wireless home automation alarm system can consist of several components. The most basic kind of this system is the classic smoke and fire detector with video and audio sensors. The smoke and fire detector can be connected to a computer or to a phone line through which it can be monitored. Another component of this kind of home security system is the camera system that can be either wired or wireless and installed almost anywhere in the house. These detectors are programmed using software and once the sensor is triggered, it starts recording all the activities happening in the area of detection. The same video and audio data are then sent to the central monitoring system and from there, it is distributed to the central control unit through the telephone line or computer network.
