Having a perimeter alarm is a great way to protect your home and camp. Whether you are living in an area prone to natural disasters, or if you simply want additional security, a DIY perimeter alarm system can help. Not only is it cost effective, but it can work for any level of security that you require. Here’s a guide to help you create your own perimeter alarm system.
- Motion sensor lights – these lights will illuminate when triggered, warning any intruders
- Vibration sensors – detect vibrations from objects such as animals or vehicles moving in your area
- Wireless alarm – will sound when triggered
- Power supply – either primary wired or wireless powered with batteries, solar panels, etc
- Control unit – This will control the system and alert you when it is triggered.
Installation of your perimeter alarm is fairly straightforward. Start by installing your vibration sensors in the surrounding area. When you do, make sure they are spaced appropriately, as to not miss any movements. You may want to consider placing the sensors around your property line. Once your sensors are installed, it’s time to connect your wireless alarm, power it up, and position it in a convenient area.
Next, install your motion sensor lights. Place these lights in areas that you want to protect. You can place them on walls, near entrances, or around the perimeter. When triggered, the lights will come on and alert you of any movement or disturbances.
Now that you have your sensors and alarm set up, it’s time to connect and program your control unit. This will control and monitor all of your sensors and will alert you when any of them are triggered. Once the system is set up, all you have to do is arm the alarm, sit back, and enjoy your peace of mind.
A DIY perimeter alarm system is a great way to protect your home and camp. With its cost effective design and flexibility, you can have an extra layer of security even if you are in a remote area. Make sure to install your system correctly and follow the directions carefully for best results. With your system in place, you can enjoy knowing that your space is safe and secure.
