These are safeguards that will help to warn people that there is a possible fire, prompting them to call the fire department or authorities for help. DetectorsBut more importantly, it is not the alarms but how they are triggered. For burglar alarms, homeowners can also ask their contractors to wire their house in such a way that when the wires
are tripped or cut in any way, the alarm will go off. However, it is more typical to see motion detectors now since technology has improved
alarm systems. These motion detectors act much like wires but they use infrared beams instead of wires. Once these beams are crossed or disturbed in any way by some object, the alarms will go off.
