Creating a DIY Perimeter Alarm to protect your Home&Camp needn’t be an overwhelming task. By following these simple steps you can have a secure perimeter alarm system in place in less than an hour.
Step 1: Choose a Detection Method
A perimeter alarm system should be triggered by something. One of the most popular detection methods is motion sensors. These sensors detect the movement of an animal or object as it crosses the perimeter line. Infrared sensors are also commonly used as these can detect temperature changes in the air.
Step 2: Prepare the Area
Once you have chosen your detection method, you will then need to prepare the area for installation. The area must not contain any obstructions such as plants, rocks, furniture, etc… Make sure that the chosen area is easy to access and that it has been cleared of any debris.
Step 3: Connect the Components
Connect the sensors to the perimeter alarm, following the specific instructions supplied with the alarm system. Connect the signal cables from the sensors to the control panel, then turn on the system and activate the sensors.
Step 4: Install the Alarm System
Install the alarm system in accordance with the instructions supplied. Make sure the alarms are securely attached to the ground. Do not install them too close to the perimeter line, as this may lead to false alarms being triggered.
Step 5: Test Your Perimeter Alarm System
Once the alarm system is installed, it is important to regularly test it to make sure it is working correctly. Test the sensors, signals and control panels to ensure all components are in proper working order.
Step 6: Monitor the System
Finally, make sure to regularly monitor your perimeter alarm system. By checking the system and testing it periodically, you can ensure a secure and effective alarm system for your Home&Camp.
Whether you choose motion sensors, infrared sensors or another detection method, by following these easy steps you can have your perimeter alarm system securely installed in no time.
