How to Set Up the Right Home Security Equipments — 3 solutions for your options

When you get existential about it, much of our daily lives revolve around the notion of “protection.” When you toss a password on your computer’s log-in screen, for instance, you’re protecting your data against wannabe hackers. And when you vaccinate your kids — you’re protecting them and people who are immunocompromised from potentially life-threatening diseases.

It’s sort of weird, then, that so few of us have equipped our houses — the place where we spend most of our time and keep our most precious belongings — with some sort of protection: According to the survey, a mere 17 percent of U.S. households have a fleshed-out home security system.

Maybe it’s because choosing home security equipments is kind of a nightmare.

To get rid of  the allodoxaphobia, we have offered 3 home security solutions to protect your home based on different conditions.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Determine the scope of prevention according to the room condition

First of all, the two balconies and gates are the most susceptible to the invasion;

The second is the window of the kitchen and the study (because the study and the kitchen are usually unmanned, especially at night, it is easy to be the entrance to the thief); Moreover, it is the master room, children’s room and bathroom;

So far we have already cognize the areas that need to be guarded, and meanwhile the primary and secondary levels of the prevention area are also settled.

Step 2: Determine the defense zone as well as defense methods and equipments in each zone

After cognizing the location and area that is prone to intrusion, you should confirm the number of points to set up surveillance equipment according to your surrounding environment, community security measures, house environment and other factors as well as your financial situation (of course, it is best to set up security devices at all the vulnerable areas).

Here, we will carry out a variety of configuration of security device by setting up defenses in the aforementioned areas as an example. The exact amount of surveillance equipment is subject to your specific situation.

Home Security System Economical Configuration

In the environment with fairly guaranteed security or under a budget constraint, you may only set up defence at the gates, balconies, kitchen and study room.

The gate, kitchen, and study use wireless doorsensor, and the living room and bedroom are equipped with infrared detector

  • Security devices: 2 infrared detectors, 3 door sensors

When the door and window of the gate, the study and the kitchen are opened or levered open in motion by more than 1cm; or the human body enters the bedroom and the living room from the balcony in defence status, the detector will activate the alarm. After receiving the alarm signal, the host sounds the high-pitched alarm and dials the alarm to the owner’s phone.

Disadvantages: When the doorsensor is installed on the window, the window cannot be opened in summer. Besides, there are hidden dangers given the bathroom and the children’s room cannot be safeguarded.

The ordinary detectors used indoors have limited capability of  identification and surveillance. Without video surveillance equipment,  the alarm can only be a notification to the owner but no physical evidence of crime is left to catch criminals.

Home Security System Basic Configuration

On the basis of the aforementioned economical configuration, add one more camera at the front gate, and one doorsensor is installed in the bathroom window.

In some high traffic areas such as front gate that are easier to break into, you shall set up cameras cover as many of these areas as possible.

ZOSI 1080P security PIR camera is an ideal option for home security. Featuring with 1080p resolution and up to 32ft heat sensing range as well as night vision up to 50ft, it sees and captures everything clear in details in day and night. Once the unwelcome visitors try to break in through the gate, the heat sensing motion alert will be triggered, and camera will automate recording and send notification to you instantly.

In this way, you have completed a basic home security system. Reliable surveillance devices are installed in key zones (gate, living room).

  • Security devices: 1 security camera, 2 infrared detectors, 3 door sensors

With the basic configuration, if there is break-ins and motion detected by the camera system from the front gate and living room, DVR will make sound warning and the intruding activities will be captured by the camera, while instant notifications will be sent to your phones via ZOSI Smart App.

At the same time, if children’s room, study, kitchen and bathroom is opened or levered open in motion by more than 1cm, the infrared detectors will sound the high-pitched alarms. a valid security effect.

Disadvantages: Although all indoor areas are already under guard, passive infrared can only be found and alarmed after intrusion, and there is still a lack of security guards in the perimeter zones of balcony and windows.

Home Security System Functional Configuration

In order to solve the issue that the basic config can not offer protection for balcony, you can add security cameras on the balcony and remove some indoor infrared detectors.
