The best way to protect your home is to detect intruders before they can enter.
When an installation, only CCTV is used, we have no ability to react to the intrusion. After all, it has happened, we will have a recording of what happened, but too late.
On the other hand, when an alarm is installed with only detectors inside of the alarm it does not occur until the thieves have entered the facility. Usually it is too late, because when someone can go to verify the alarm intruders have already completed the robbery and be away.
Therefore, in residential installations in houses, the best solution is to have an alarm system with detectors outside, to detect the intrusion before the thieves have entered the house, when still in the garden. Thus, the owners have reaction times to prevent theft or aggression possible if they are within the housing when intrusion occurs.
Ideally is, further, combined using detectors with devices outside CCTV. Thus, before the intruders from entering the property, the owners are notified by the alarm, and can be verified through the CCTV system if it is a real alarm or a false alarm.
For external protection, Optex defines 3 levels of protection that thieves must go through before accessing the interior of the house: perimeter protection, protection abroad, and limit protection (facade).
For each of these regions, both wired detectors Optex offers a wide range of detectors via radio, ready to work with wireless transmitters from other manufacturers. Thus, it is possible to use with any alarm system in the market.
The use of wireless sensors outside thus allows to provide the true sense of security to the owners’ houses.
