DIY Perimeter Alarm To Protect Your Home&Camp
Whether you’re home or camping, it’s important to keep your property safe from intruders. That’s why setting up a DIY perimeter alarm is a great way to protect your home and camp from unwanted visitors. In this article, we will walk you through setting up your own alarm system.
What You’ll Need
- Motion-activated light alarm
- Wireless security cameras
- Window and door alarms
- Wireless intercom system
Step One: Install Motion-Activated Light Alarm
Turn on the motion-activated light and set it up around the perimeter of the home or camping area. The light should be pointed away from the area that you’re protecting, as it will trigger the alarm when someone or something enters the property. Make sure that the motion-activated light is far enough away from the area that it can detect movement, but not so far that it won’t be able to detect an intruder.
Step Two: Install Wireless Security Cameras
Next, install wireless security cameras around the area you’re protecting. You can choose to install the cameras in visible or hidden locations, depending on your preferences. Also, make sure to label each camera with its location, so you can easily identify it if the alarm goes off.
Step Three: Install Window and Door Alarms
Window and door alarms will alert you if someone tries to enter the home or camp. Set up the window and door alarms in strategic locations, like near windows and other entrances, and make sure the alarms are audibly loud enough to detect an intruder.
Step Four: Install Wireless Intercom System
Lastly, install a wireless intercom system. This system will allow you to communicate with people outside of the home or camp and can be triggered from a remote location. The intercom system will also provide an additional layer of protection against any intruders.
Setting up a perimeter alarm is a great way to protect your home and camping area from intruders. By following the steps above, you will have a fully functioning security system that will help you sleep soundly at night.
