Detection comes in a number of forms generally they are based on either methods of detection that are described as Internal trap or Perimeter.

Detection method Disadvantage Advantage
Internal trap To be detected the intruder has already made entry into your home causing damage by forcing a door, smashing a window etc. Cheaper to install, easier to conceal wiring.
Perimeter More expensive to install, harder to conceal wiring Intruder can be detected while they are outside, less damage less potential for confronting a burglar etc.
Type Where used
Movement One device can cover a whole room used to signal someone is present or not.

The system isn’t much use if you can’t operate it, at the heart of every system is a central wiring point, this point can have an integral keypad and indication of system status or the keypad can be located remotely at one or more points.

You may be a sole user or there may be lots of different users with different levels of access and control.
