But in reality, today's antitheft alarm systems bites hard. It may look cool on screen but truth it's the machines that win.

Amid today's cutting edge technology antitheft alarm systems have gone from competent to supreme. With every possible implementations now imbedded, alarm systems are now capable for every situation that ultimately it falls to whether you need all the extras. There's no mission impossible to defeat here. Not to mention the staggering price tag it eventually would have. True, when safety is at stake, you are more than ready to shell out more bread. Even then, you still don't want to pay for those loaded antitheft alarm systems with gizmos you won't even bother activating.

So what is the best antitheft alarm system for you? To classify, there are 4 basic antitheft alarm systems:

1st Simple alarms are mostly concocted alarms or self installed on windows and doors. They are the cheapest. Upon activation, they set off the alarm.

2nd Local alarms do more. When wires are tripped, they make full alarm blast; some have macros that allow other automation, like turning on lights. Depending on their nature, they can be cheap or expensive.

3rd Automated dialer systems may or may have sirens but what they generally do is dial the pre-selected numbers for help. Automatic dialers have panic buttons, which upon activation will proceed to dial for help.

4th Monitoring systems are 24/7 monitoring services. They cost monthly fees but they are most voted safe due to the continuous monitoring.

So what do you need? If your problems are casual trespassers and intruders, you could go for the first option though you still have to dial the emergency line if things go dire. Simple alarms are cheap. Some designs can be homebrewed (see The Fundamentals of a Burglar Alarm System). If you are mostly away from home, or robberies are a neighborhood problem, then the second or third option is needed. Some antitheft alarm systems are a combination of siren, dialer and automated light control, so be sure to look for one. Take note, these designs cost more since they naturally do more than the standard stuff. Still they are better protection than the standard alarm devices.

The ultimate protection is the monitoring services. They monitor homes 24/7. They are constantly in touch with emergency response teams; some even have their own response unit. Not only they monitor theft activities, they also include fire safety and (on some) personal health safety. For that reason, they can cost astronomical. This antitheft system is best suited for homes that are located in unpopulated areas and with lots of valuables.

Assuredly, the best antitheft alarm systems are out in the market already. It only a matter of choosing which is the best for your homes.
