How to prevent False Alarms?

Nothing is more annoying than rushing from office to your home and finding out that the alarm alert that you just received is a False one! After all when it comes to your Home protection, you would want to take each alarm as seriously. I just read on about security alarm reviews and was determine to gather few reasons for False alarm to share with Owners of existing alarm system and others who would like to invest in one.

Introduction: Security is not a compromise on convenience
Security alarm is meant to add the convenience of putting all your security worries at rest . A Reliable Security system is the one which ensures complete safety, low false alarm rate and quick response methods. Which make the opting of a good quality system even more important. READ FURTHER for common reasons of false alarms, features in an alarm system which ensures Low false alarm rates and our recommended security alarm for Indian Home and offices.

False alarms are generally caused by following reasons-
1) Installation is not proper-  There may be a short circuit and improper wiring done which may cause false alarms. Wires used should also be of good quality
2) Connection to the Sensors are loose- The loose connection at the control panel end or the device end can also result in a false alarm. The sensor, magnetic switches should also be of a good quality.
3) PIR sensor is not located properly- Many False alarm problem arise due to PIR Sensor location and environment in which it is Installed.
4) Fluctuating Electricity and improper Battery backup- Fluctuation in electricity can also cause false alarm. The system with battery backup should also have automatic charger, deep discharge protection and
5) Sensor Frequency conflicted by other equipments- Most of the wireless alarm system works on RF based frequency.  Some times this RF frequency is conflicted by other equipments and it gets a false alarm. For Example you have wireless door bell and wireless alarm. Its may get an alarm when someones presses the door bell.
6) Lack of operational Knowledge- The system owner should understand the proper functioning of the alarm and should also educate the other users. The system owner should periodically test the system and ensure that the system is serviced on time.

1) Zone response time- Each zone should have respond time up to 300 Micro Sec.

How to make your home safer?

Posh areas of Delhi are considerably under spotlight. This time because of a increase in house robberies. According to Indian express article-

``There are three kinds of areas that are prone to robberies in Delhi,'' an officer at the Lajpat Nagar Police Station told Express Newsline. ``Places like Neeti Bagh and Gulmohar Park in South Delhi where the well-off live; places that are well-connected to the Ring Road as it is easy for the robbers to get away with the loot; And finally, places that are not well-lit.''

Commenting on the situation in northwest Delhi, DCP (north-west) Satyendra Garg says: ``It is a border district and therefore more prone to robberies. Investigations have revealed that most of these robberies have been committed either by novices or by gangs based in Haryana. Many of the robbers are dhobis or drivers: They are not starving, but think they will make a quick buck by robbing people.''

Statistics available at PHQ reveal that robberies have been the largest contributor to the 12 per cent increase in crime since the beginning of this year as compared to the whole of last year: 364 cases of robbery were reported till June 30.

While 46 cases were registered in June, at least 31 were registered during this months till yesterday.

Question to deal with is - IS YOUR HOME SAFE?
The more important aspect is to educate oneself of the right security systems for your home. A security system has following components-

The input devices ( which trigger the alarm)
The output devices( which communicate the alarm like speakers)
The Control panel( networks between the devices and is a interaface for user)

The following weeks we will discuss the functioning of these devices and factors one should consider while choosing an alarm system
