Below we have mentioned 2 common types of sensors used by alarm systems to detect intruders. Take a look.
- Passive Infrared Motion Detectors
This being practical and affordable is the most common type of sensor people go for. They are called passive as they generate their own energy and they can even detect changes in their immediate surroundings as well as body heat. The alarm goes off whenever there is a temperature spike because of an intruder or any foreign object.
- Magnetic switches
Used basically to protect the doors and windows, these consist of 2 parts; a switch and a magnet. Because they are easy to use, affordable and durable, people gravitate towards them. This functions by creating an electrical circuit, so when the door or window is forced open, the spring gives way to breaking the circuit and thus triggering the alarm.
