Basic Home Security Products

Many people ask us what components are in basic home security systems when considering home protection. Every residential alarm system includes a variety of essential devices that work together to protect the home from intruders and other threats.

These components likely include:

Control Panel– The command hub of your security system

Door and Window Sensors–  Consist of two pieces that form an electrical current. One is placed on the door or window and the other on the frame. When opened, it breaks a circuit that sends a message to the control panel triggering an alarm. 

High-decibel Alarm– A loud, externally or internally mountable siren that alerts residents or neighbors of trouble.

Surveillance Cameras– Wired or wireless Video Surveillance Cameras can be used indoors or outdoors and viewed remotely via an app.

Video Doorbells– Provide video of activity near the door and two-way communication.

Glass Break Sensors– set off an alarm if a window shatters.

Fire/Smoke Detectors- Detect smoke and heat and provide an early alert to fire.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors- Detect the presence of Carbon Monoxide, an invisible and odorless gas.


The final facets are professional security installation and monitoring ensuring your home is protected optimally from potential threats. Not every home has the same type or level of risks and everyone should have one customized according to factors such as location, crime rates, whether you own or rent, and budget. Having wide knowledge surrounding the technologies, security professionals can customize a solution fit to your specific security needs.
