Placing sensors and sirens
Assuming you want to use your alarm system as described above it is important to place devices in such a way that they give you the protection desired.
The basic assumption when it comes to sensors is that magnet sensors protect you against intrusions through doors and windows that can be opened. For example if someone manages to break your door lock, the alarm will still go off. Motion sensors on the other hand protects you against unwanted motion in any area. If an intruder breaks a window and tries to climb in it is the motion sensor that is triggered.
Magnet sensors – Place magnet sensors on all the windows and doors that can be opened and that are easily accessible either through direct access or short ladders.
Motion sensors – Place motion sensors in all rooms that are easily accessible by breaking windows and/or areas that otherwise not covered by magnet sensors.
Sirens – The sirens are very loud and their placement is not critical sound vise. We recommend trying to place the sirens in areas where they are not easily accessible so it is hard to silence them by intruders.
Keypads – Place keypads where you want quick access to change the armed mode of the system. Typically at your front door or in your bedroom.-->
