As you shop for the right home security systems Houston, there are a lot of components to consider. Many people consider motion detectors, but not everyone realizes that there are three distinct types. Let's take a look.


1. Motion Detector Lights. These are the most well-known and most likely to be installed. They serve 2 important purposes: to illuminate anyone trying to break in and to light the way when homeowners come home.


2. Motion Detector Cameras. These cameras come on when motion is detected and can either be installed permanently or can be moved around as you see fit. As technology improves they get smaller, higher in quality, and more affordable.


3. Motion Detector Alarms. As the name implies, these alarms go off when motion is detected. If you install these, then you must be sure to only arm them when no one in the household will accidentally set them off.


Motion detectors can make a great addition to any comprehensive home security systems.  Nothing can beat the peace of mind a homeowner can get knowing their family is safe from unscrupulous and unwanted visitors.
