DIY Perimeter Alarm To Protect Your Home&Camp
Let’s face it – protecting your home or camp is often expensive when you hire a security company. But there are ways to protect your place of residence without breaking the bank.
One of the best and most cost-effective ways to guard your home or camp is to install a DIY perimeter alarm. It’s an easy project that won’t take much time and won’t require many expensive materials.
What is a DIY Perimeter Alarm?
A DIY perimeter alarm is a system that detects intruders at your property’s perimeter by monitoring changes in light levels. When an intruder enters the monitored area, it triggers an alarm and/or alerts you in some way.
How does it work?
A DIY perimeter alarm system typically consists of an outdoor motion detector, a sensor, and a control unit. The detector is placed around your property’s perimeter and the sensor is connected to it. When an intruder passes into the range of the detector, it sends a signal to the control unit which triggers the alarm. The alarm is usually loud enough to scare off the intruder and alert you to the presence of an intruder.
How Do You Build a DIY Perimeter Alarm?
You can purchase all the necessary parts for a DIY perimeter alarm system at your local hardware store. You’ll need a motion detector, sensors, a control unit, wires, and a power source. The wiring of your DIY alarm system can be a bit complicated, so it’s best to consult an expert electrician or electronics expert to help you.
