In a word, yes.

In a recent blog post, we wrote about how realtors use various security devices.  One topic covered was a burglar alarm system, used especially for vacant houses on the market.

In today's article, we'd like to elaborate on the type of security system which would be suitable for that particular use--a portable alarm system.  But vacant houses aren't they only place they're useful, and realtors aren't the only people who need them.

Wireless motion detector--an indoor component of a portable alarm system.

Among the many other places portable security systems can be used are construction sites with stacks of valuable metal and lumber, for instance, or many retail businesses that keep their inventory outside.  Utility companies also have a serious need for outdoor security since wire rolls are so sought after. 

The core of a portable alarm comprises a motion detector, alarm panel, cellular radio, siren/strobe and a battery.

But you can add many ancillary components such as outdoor and indoor sensors.

For the outside, you can create an invisible perimeter with these sensors.  You could also add a loop (sort of like a circuit that you "lock") that will alert the main unit if it is interrupted.

There are also devices that detect movement.   Our locksmith division here at One Source recommends these to be in contact with safes.  As mentioned, they detect any movement and they also detect vibrations.  So if a safe were being tampered with, even before it is moved, the alarm would be tripped.

For the inside, indoor sensors such as motion detectors, glass breaks, smoke detectors, window and door contacts, etc., will all signal the portable unit in lieu of a traditional panel.

The portable alarm system makes the call to the central station without the use of a telephone line.  When any of these sensors produces an alert, it uses cellular radio.

Since security is possible in many places without electricity, please don't hesitate to keep your valuables safe instead of taking a chance. 


For an explanation of how the devices in this article work and how they can apply to your situation, please contact us here at One Source.  Thanks for spending some time with us today.
