Need Advice on Home Alarm
We're in the middle of a fairly extensive remodel and our GC asked us if we want to do any security alarm wiring before they install the drywall. We live at the top of a hill, off of a busy street, so you might say we're somewhat secluded. We had security cameras installed to point down our driveway and towards our back yard (and garage area). I feel comfortable with that for watching our house when we're not home. If something's stolen, well, that's what insurance is for.
I'm concerned, though, if someone breaks in while we're asleep. We do have 2 small dogs that sleep in our room, who will bark if someone makes very much noise, but my 20 yr. son is able to come home, enter through either our front or back door without making enough noise to wake the dogs.
I'm thinking the best alarm would be something that uses motion detection and sounds an alarm both outside and inside. I wouldn't want it to be too loud in either location, as we do have deer that may set it off and I wouldn't want to disturb the neighbors. I mainly want something that will let an intruder know they've been detected by an alarm and will let us know in our bedroom that the alarm detected something.
