Advanced Alarms & Motion Sensors to Protect Your Property in Southwest Utah

Our homes are our castles; we love coming back to them, and they are filled with our most precious possessions. It comes as no surprise, then, that we want to keep our homes and their contents safe and protected at all times.

If you’re thinking about installing a home security system, there are trusted electrical service professionals at HedgeHog Electric who would be happy to do the job for you. However, if you’re looking to install a home security system yourself, consider these steps to make the job easier for you.

How Security Systems Work

Home alarm systems are referred to as “closed-circuit systems.” An installed security system remains closed, while all of the windows and doors (and their switches) are shut. The switches work together, letting others know if something is wrong. If any door or window in the circuit is opened, that switch becomes open as well. Once the closed circuit is broken, a trigger will sound off, alerting the entire system that the closed connection was broken. The trigger sound is what burglars will hear when they try to enter into your home without a proper welcome.

In some security options, the trigger will immediately alert a connected security company, who will notify you that something is wrong. With some home security packages, you also have the option of installing an app that will send notifications to your device if an intruder is in your home. Higher-end designs can give you the ability to view parts of your home, to make sure that things are alright when you’re not there.

Installing Home Security on Your Own

Handling electrical work is complicated and best left to a team of residential electrical professionals, like ours at HedgeHog Electric. If you’re installing home security on your own, there are a handful of steps to follow.

Install the Security Pad

This security pad is the home base of your system, and it will need to be installed somewhere close to the front area. That’s because when you do come home from your day, you’ll have a short amount of time to enter a password on the keypad.

Additionally, you’ll need a power source for the pad, as well as some tools to install the pad properly. Your security system will come with steps you can follow, which will help you to hook up the wires to your electrical unit.

To stay safe, make sure to turn off the power to that particular power source while you’re working with it. For anyone who is renting their home, consider using double-sided tape, or a removable hook to keep from ruining the drywall and paint.

Installing Sensors

Your home security system will come with a handful of door and window alarm sensors, and these are the things you’ll want to place around the house. If you have other areas that you’re concerned about, you should be able to purchase additional sensors for these.

If your kit comes with motion sensors, consider putting these in the top back corner of a room for maximum coverage. Motion sensors should only be used when you’re out of the home, or if you don’t have pets. Otherwise, some systems can account for and disregard animal movement, which is very handy.

Test the System

When you’ve got your keypad set up and your sensors in place, you can then test the system to make sure it’s working. Use your manual to set up things like time and preferences, then play with the various options so you know what security options you have.
