The Various Types of Alarm Systems

Posted on 5th April 2018 by Wilson Alarm Systems Blog



There are various kinds of alarm systems that are used to deter criminal activity and detect possibly threatening situations. Electronic alarm systems can detect things including gas leaks, fires and unwanted intruders.

Carbon Monoxide Sensors

Due to its lack of odour and colour, the presence of carbon monoxide is virtually impossible to detect without a specialised sensor and if left undetected, the outcome can be fatal. When carbon monoxide is present, the sensor will set an audible alarm, alerting any occupants.

Motion Sensors

As the name suggests, motion sensors detect movement in a room and alert you to any potential threat in your home. There are a variety of different types of motions sensors from their technology, installation and alter methods. In more recent developments, there are now options for pet-friendly motion sensors. 

Panic Buttons

Panic buttons can be used in emergency situations as they send an immediate but discreet call for help to a designated receiver when pressed. Panic buttons can be installed in the homes of vulnerable people, including the elderly or those with disabilities.
