Burglar Alarms Sensor Types
Most burglar alarms use on or more sensors to detect intruders and an alerting device.
Passive Infrared Detectors
One of the most common detectors that works by detecting changes in temperature. This type of sensor can be mounted to a wall or ceiling.
This is often used together with passive infrared detectors so it will not trigger false alarms.
Detects intruders by transmitting infrared light beams.
Glass break detection
Mostly mounted close to the glass panes in order for it to capture sound frequencies that are related to a glass breaking.
Vibration or Inertia sensors
Used to detect an attack on a specific structure. These are very reliable and have low false alarm rate.
Passive magnetic field detection
Can either be buried on the ground or installed at the top of the wall. This type of sensor uses an electromagnetic field generator powered by wires that are connected to the signal processor.
Fibre optic cable
The cable can be attached to the fence or the steel tape that are already on top of the walls and fences. once disturbed, the receiver will detect the amount of light received and therefore alerting the homeowner or business owner.
