Home Security & Safety

Keep your home safe with an alarm system

With a number of home alarm systems, you can rest easy knowing that you'll be alerted in time before any emergency becomes too catastrophic. From a motion-activated alarm to extreme temperature alerts, you can find the protection you need. These sensors will help notify you of any potential hazard. There are even options that will dial out to a security operator who can send the needed emergency response team once the alarm is tripped. This will let you focus on getting you and your family to a safe location.

The first place that you'll want to secure is the windows. Protect them with contact alarm systems. In these systems, a small sensor is placed on the window frame. If the window slides up and loses contact with the sensor, the alarm will beep. It's a simple system that usually runs on 12V batteries. It's an easy way to alert you and immediately deter someone trying to get in.

Home alarm systems can be used to alert you to times when your home is in danger from natural disasters and severe weather, as well. If you live in flood plains or other low-lying areas prone to flooding, being alerted to rising water during a storm can keep your home from incurring too much damage. Once you know of the problem you can quickly grab your gas powered pump and get water out before it becomes a major issue. During the extreme cold of winter or the sweltering heat of summer, the temperature can wreak havoc on both you and your home. Being alerted to dangerous indoor temperatures will allow you to address the situation before you're faced with damage to your home or unsafe conditions for your family.

In an emergency situation, your main focus will be ensuring that you and your family are safe. There are a number of alarms that, when tripped, will immediately alert a call center that can contact the proper authorities to come to your aid. Pairing a home alarm system like this with a state of the art surveillance system will help you create the safest environment so that you can feel more secure.

With a few alarms in place, you'll be able to relax knowing that should anything happen you'll find out right away. Browse the selection at Sears to outfit your home with the alarm systems that will help you rest easy.
