Your property’s perimeter is always the first to be compromised when a forced entry occurs. That’s why it’s advisable for you to invest in perimeter security to ensure that criminals don’t get the chance to make it into your home or office. As far as outdoor detectors go, beams are a stable and reliable form of movement detection and crime deterrence.
Whilst they’re also known as infra-red beams, outdoor beams have been around for quite some time now. Their continued popularity reinforces just how effective they are at ensuring perimeter security. Here’s a little more on why so many choose them:
With a strong detection rate and a low false-alarm rate, beams are a sure way to give you peace of mind. One of the pitfalls of any alarm system is false alarm alerts but with security beams on your property, any alert is pretty much a qualified one. This is because they send (an alarm) distress signal to your security provider as soon as a beam has been broken by an intruder.
They are pet-friendly
With beams needing to recognise a certain movement pattern before it sends (an alarm) distress signal, outdoor beams are safe for use if you have pets. This means you won’t need to stress about unwanted (alarm) distress signals if your dog or cat feels active during the night.
They don’t detract from the aesthetics of your property
As much as security trumps the appearance of your property, beams won’t become an eyesore that you can’t stand to look at. The transmitters and receivers of an outdoor beam system are fairly small and most of the time, they’ll blend in with your walls.
They give you peace of mind
It’s a reality that crime statistics in our country are growing. This means that every property or business owner needs to beef up their first line of defence. With garden or perimeter beams, you’ll know that your security has been compromised long before any criminals gain access to the building. Most of the time, the alarm signal is enough to deter them and they choose to flee. This alarm gives you enough time to get to safety and also alerts your security company who will send a patrol car out to your property immediately.
