What happens when an intrusion occurs?

When a secure zone is broken, security systems are designed to undertake specific duties. The sort of security system you have determines what happens in the case of an incursion.

Security Systems That Are Professionally Monitored: Whenever your security system is professionally monitored by an alarm provider, they will be notified if a security issue emerges in your home. The monitoring provider is also notified, in addition to the high-decibel alarm. If the control panel is set up for 2-Way Voice communication, a certified security expert may attempt to connect with the homeowner via the control panel, or phone the emergency contact number given on the account.

The monitoring firm can connect with these security systems in a variety of ways, including:

  • When a battery backup is used, existing house phone lines continue to work during power outages.
  • Wirelessly using cellular radio frequencies, similar to those used by cell phones, which also work during power outages when a battery backup is used.
  • Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a type of communication that does not work in the event of a power loss.
  • Through the Internet, which is normally unavailable during a power outage.

What are non-lethal weapons?

Non-lethal weapons (NLW) are designed to incapacitate individuals while minimizing avoidable deaths, property damage, and environmental damage. Some NLW inflict blows or electric shocks. The best known non-lethal weapons are Taser, stun guns, stun batons, pepper spary, keychain weapons, spy cameras. Products like these and many more, can be purchased in different stores, we highlight The Home Security Superstore for its extensive catalog and reliability.  

How are they different from regular weapons?

According to a 1999 Council on Foreign Relations Independent Task Force Report, "Non-lethal Technologies: Progress and Prospects," most weaponry developed for military use damage targets through blast, fragmentation, or penetration. (In February 2004, a fresh, updated task force report on non-lethal weaponry was produced.) NLW, on the other hand, has reversible and transitory effects, according to experts. "The majority of what's available today is short-range, blunt-impact kinetic weapons," says Marine Colonel David P. Karcher, director of the Defense Department's Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate (JNLWD). "They're basically better copies of what you'd see in a municipal police agency."
