The AAS 600 Wireless Home Security System

The AAS 600 wireless home security system is currently the best alternative to hard wired alarm systems as well as expensive home monitoring services. There is no need to pay those high monthly monitoring fees that the professionally installed security systems require. The AAS 600 has consistently been rated four and a half stars out of a possible five, by people who have installed it, and use it everyday. I try not to make purchase decisions based on endorsements, but with so many people with no financial interest in this product saying the very same thing, i had to take a look for myself.

Selecting the right home security system, is a process that starts with an evaluation of your current needs. This means determining what has to be protected, and how vulnerable it is. Homeowners will drive themselves crazy when choosing the right system. This is partly due to all of the options available, But it is also due to the scare tactics, and misinformation that are being used to sell these products. I believe that if you are living in an average middle class neighborhood, the services offered by companies like ADT are not your only option. If you are on a budget, and can do without central alarm monitoring, and just want to be notified whenever there is a problem, the AAS 600 Wireless Home Security System is for you.

This top rated product offers many high end features, like a Phone line tamper function, a remote control handset, it even has a built in auto dialer. These features are provided as part of the basic kit, not as upgrade options. All of these things would normally cost you a lot more money if purchased as part of a hardwired system. If this product has a weakness, it has to be that when upgrading, you must use components designed specifically for this system. Whereas most hardwired systems allow you to use equipment from different manufacturers, and some even support wireless products, allowing them to be easily integrated into your existing setup.

To properly design a security system you have to determine how you will protect the perimeter of your home. The first step is going to be figuring out where the likely points of entry for a burglar will be, and secure them. Statistically speaking, it will be a main floor window, or a exterior door, most likely the rear or side doors. The mentioned points should be secured with the magnetic contact alarms that come with the AAS 600. Once your perimeter has been secured, you next have to install the supplemental alarms, consisting of the motion detectors, and the glass break detectors. These devices act as a fail-safe, in the event your perimeter alarms are bypassed, or malfunction.

The motion detectors should go in common areas like the living room, and the hallways. A professional burglar can enter your home through unconventional points. To defend against this you have two options. The first is to cover every square foot of your home with motion detectors. The second and smarter option would be placing these devices in strategic locations throughout your home. It really does not matter how an intruder gets into your home, he will have to walk from point A to point B, so we place these devices in the passage ways that he must use.

The other component of your secondary line of defense will be the Glass break detectors. Your main floor windows are a favorite entry point for burglars. Even though protected by contact alarms, they can be bypassed by simply breaking the glass and climbing through. Breaking glass has a unique frequency that cannot be masked. Glass break detectors listen for nothing else but this sound, and when it is heard, the alarm is activated.

If you have pets that roam around the house freely you may need to invest in a pet immune motion detector. These devices use microwave technology to not only detect moving objects, but to measure the size of the object, ignoring small things, like a cats or dogs under forty pounds. If you try arming your interior alarms without this technology, you are guaranteed a lot of false alarms. This can be quite bothersome and irritating, to both you and your neighbors. One other simple solution would be to secure your pets in a designated room during the times the motion detectors are active.

This AAS 600 wireless system comes loaded with 32 alarm zones, that can be upgraded to a maximum of 96 zones. This is more than enough to protect the average home. It also offers professional grade features, like rolling code technology, indoor and outdoor sirens, it can even tell you if your phone line has been cut. You simply cannot buy more security for your home at this price point, and not having to pay recurring monthly fees, seals the deal for me.
