A DIY perimeter alarm system is easy to build. There are many types of materials that can be used depending on your budget and the level of security you are trying to achieve. Here are a few simple materials and tools that will help you create a secure, perimeter alarm system to protect your home&camp.
- Motion Detectors – Motion detectors are sensors that will detect when a person or animal enters an area and send an alert to a monitoring station or sound an alarm. The most common types of motion sensors are infrared motion detectors and ultrasonic motion detectors.
- Lighting – Lights will help you better detect any potential intruders to your home&camp and make it more difficult for someone to enter the area undetected.
- Alarm System – Once you have the lights and motion detectors in place, you can install an alarm system to sound in the event of an intruder or unwelcome visitor. You can purchase an alarm system from a local hardware store or online.
- Perimeter Fence – A perimeter fence is a great way to form a barrier that intruders and unwelcome visitors can’t get past. Typically, a perimeter fence is constructed with wood, wire, or metal fencing.
