The availability of a wide variety of components for alarm systems makes it possible for you to build a complete system that fits your needs and your budget. When selecting alarm components, make sure that the components are either standalone units or that they are compatible with your current or planned alarm system. The LaserShield Sparrow VoIP Adapter, for example, is compatible only with LaserShield Master Alarm units. The Wireless Rubber Hose Alert is a standalone driveway alert system consisting of a 25-foot hose, a wireless transmitter and a receiver that plugs into a standard wall outlet. The Tattletale Smoke Detector works only with the Tattletale Home Alarm System, which can be programmed to alert you by email or text when you are away from home.
Many of the alarm components available at BrickHouse Security work with wireless home alarm systems. One such component, the MURS Alert Transmitter, allows you to monitor motion from a distance. You can place one transmitter to warn you of activity in or near your home and add up to three more to monitor other buildings, vacant lots, roadways or trails. The transmitter detects people, vehicles and large animals through its passive infrared sensor and sends a signal to either a hand-held or base station transceiver.
