6 Places to Install an Extra Security Siren
In today's world, home security is more important than ever. With burglary being one of the most common property crimes, it's essential to take every precaution to protect your property and your loved ones. One of the most effective ways to do this is by installing an extra security siren around your home.
By strategically placing the siren in various locations throughout your property, you can deter burglars from attempting to break in and alert yourself and your neighbors to any potential intruders. Additionally, the loud noise of the siren can startle and scare off burglars before they have a chance to enter your home or steal your valuables.
Here are six ways to use an extra security siren around your home.
Home gym: If you have a home gym, you probably aren’t in it all day. Installing a secondary siren in your home gym can deter intruders from stealing your workout equipment. Since weights cost about a dollar a pound, they’re pretty valuable.
Basement: If you have a basement, installing a security siren can be a great way to increase the security of your home. In many homes, sound doesn’t carry as well into the basement. Whether you have a workout room, a workshop, or a laundry room in your basement, an extra security siren can alert you if an intruder is in your home. This is especially important if you have windows in your basement that are easily accessible from the outside.
Second floor: If you have a two-story home, installing a security siren on the second floor can once again help the sound of the siren carry. Many homes are laid out with bedrooms on the second floor of the house and the main living areas on the ground floor, so if someone gets inside, you might not know right away. An extra siren is the perfect way to make sure you hear when someone is inside.
Home office: If you have a home office, you probably keep a lot of your computer equipment in that room. Computer equipment is a high-value target for potential burglars. Placing a secondary siren in your home office can scare intruders away from this room. If you work from home, the siren can also keep you apprised of intrusion alarms elsewhere in your home.
Home theater: A home theater is another room that likely contains a large amount of high-value equipment which may be targeted by burglars. And, if your home is burglarized while you’re inside the home theater watching a movie, you may not be able to hear the main siren. An extra siren in here will ensure you know if someone’s in your house, even if you’re in the middle of watching the newest Tom Cruise movie.
Workroom: If you have a temperature-controlled garage or workroom that contains valuable tools and materials, you may choose to place a siren here. The secondary siren can act as both an alarm to notify you and a deterrent for potential intruders.
While there are many ways to use an extra security siren around your home, it's important to remember that a siren is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to home security. You should also consider investing in other security measures, such as surveillance cameras, motion-activated lights, and door and window locks.
Introducing Cove’s Secondary Siren
With the launch of our new equipment line, we are introducing a new secondary siren. This siren is incredibly easy to use, very loud, and it can be placed anywhere in your home. The siren must be plugged into an outlet, but it does include a backup battery.
The siren communicates with Cove’s main hub via a wireless connection, so as long as it’s placed within range of the hub, it will go off when any of your sensors are triggered (while the system is armed). This siren will sound in addition to the sirens on your hub and your alarm panel (both the hub and the alarm panel include their own sirens as well).
Your home security should be a top priority, and adding a secondary siren to your security system is a great way to give yourself more peace of mind.
