Protecting a home is often the first thought after moving in and make the decision to install an alarm system and what gets forgotten is the garage. But what about the unattached garage, can that be protected too and how can this be done?
Today most vehicles have alarm systems and we take it for granted when one goes off that it is just a mistake and one that gets on our nerves if it is a nice quite day and a horn starts blaring.
This is one main reason why it makes sense to use an alarm system in the garage, autos are expensive investments and many people also have motorhomes, motorcycles, and classic cars. It has become an easy task to ensure that these vehicles stay safe from thieves and home security companies have made it all possible with their wireless system sensors on the windows of the garage, sensors on the doors and a telephone line, your cars and other vehicles no matter how expensive will be protected. They can not only be protected from thieves but also from smoke and fire, as well as water leaks and flooding and many unattached garages have sinks and even laundry facilities in them and should these water pipes spring a leak it may go unnoticed for hours or even days until the leak becomes a real problem.
These sensor work when set by alerting the monitoring system control panel if one of the windows or doors that they are attached to is opened, of course if it is a family member there is a small amount of time allotted to key in the security code to disarm the alarm system. If this is not done then the control panel will alert the monitoring center that there has been a break-in at the home and the authorities will be set out to check on the property.
This can all be done without installing wiring and can give the garage all the protection it needs and added with the home security system, motion lighting and even cameras can give the entire property protection from thieves and auto thefts are on the rise in every area even the areas that are said to be the safest to live.
Its easy to be safe in the home and in the garage with a wired or wireless system.
