DIY Perimeter Alarm To Protect Your Home & Camp
In an ever-increasing world of threats and potential danger, protecting your home and camp is one of the most important thang one can do. Whether you live in an urban area or out in the woods, often times traditional security systems are too expensive or not readily available to install. Creating and installing your own DIY perimeter alarms are one of the most cost effective ways of protecting yourself and your resources.
In this article, we’ll teach you how to construct and install a low-cost and effective alarm system to protect your home and camp. It’s an inexpensive and easy-to-install process that will provide you with peace of mind knowing your family and belongings are kept secure.
What You’ll Need
- Cable or Wire
- An Alarm Bell or Speaker
- Batteries or a Power Source
- Two-Pole Toggle Switches
- Electric Tape
Let’s Get Started!
Start by laying out the cable or wire in a perimeter around your area. Make sure the cable is firmly in place and use electric tape to keep the wires firmly attached to the ground. Then take the two-pole toggle switch and place it somewhere along the perimeter cable or wire. This switch will serve as the main activation point of the alarm system.
Next, connect the alarm bell or speaker to the two-pole toggle switch. Make sure to secure the connection using electric tape. Once that’s in place, it’s time to attach the power source, such as the batteries. Now, your alarm system is connected and ready to use!
When someone or something attempts to enter the area you’ve set up the alarm system to protect, the alarm bell or speaker will sound – alerting you to the situation. If you have a particularly large area to cover, you can splice in additional two-pole switches and bells along the perimeter line to create an even louder alarm and better warn those nearby.
DIY perimeter alarms are an excellent and affordable way to upgrade your perimeter security and reinforce your premises. With a few easy steps and materials, you can easily have a robust security system installed on your premises to keep you and your family safe.
