If you have animals at home and want to protect yourself with an alarm system, this article will clarify your doubts. To begin, I will say that there are alarm systems that allow animals to move freely inside the house without danger of triggering the system.
Based on the design principle of the 3 security circles (I recommend reading my article at www.masseguridad.es), what we must do is completely secure the circle of the inner perimeter, that is, we must place detection elements to holes on walls, floors and ceilings, detection elements for opening doors and windows and glass break detectors. Also, if we want to detect an intrusion before the intruders break a wall, door or window, we must protect the circle of the outer perimeter.
An alarm system designed in this way allows firstly that animals and people can move freely around the house, since there are no movement detectors inside. This system will only fire if a wall, door or window is broken, that is, if the inner perimeter circle is accessed (if the outer perimeter circle has been protected, the system will detect intruders even earlier). Secondly, if this system is installed wiring during the work because it is a new construction or renovation, we can make it completely invisible by embedding the detection elements in the walls, ceilings, doors and windows, so we avoid the unsightly effects so unwanted by end users.
In ecomotics we love solving problems like these through electronic security and / or automation systems.
