125 countries recognize the quality of Yale. This locking system was started in colonial America in 1840 by Linus Yale Sr. who manufactured expensive, handmade locks for banks in Newport, New York. This immigrant from North Wales trained his son Linus Yale Jr. in this work. Junior patented the pin tumbler cylinder system they were using and created a quality security device still in use around the world. Yale continued to expand and build on this area of expertise, eventually developing an alarm system. In August, 2000 ASSA ABLOY Group purchased Yale. The Yale name today is stronger than ever and continuing to expand.
Yale alarms are designed to keep people out of places they have no business being. This could be a building, a garage, a shed or a front or back yard. The choices are endless with wireless being the most popular and easiest to use. Indeed, a wireless system is great to add a barn or shed alarm in to the main alarm system as wiring at this distance can prove difficult. It is important thought to ensure that the radio signal will remain strong at the distances involved.
A standard system is perfect for a flat or a semi detached house with two PIR (passive infra red) sensors. A single room alarm features infrared detectors with a 20 foot range and the earsplitting siren of 130 dB. A whole house system can include a smoke detector, a carbon monoxide detector and customization abilities. Special repeaters (long-distance alarms) protect attics, basements and cellars. Gas detectors and flood (water) detectors immediately notify the home owner or occupant of a problem or potential problem. These systems are better than having a full-time security guard patrolling the property; the monitors are everywhere at once.
Pet lovers, rejoice! Another major innovation in Yale alarm has produced a home security system designed to accommodate pets up to 50 pounds without triggering this alarm. Now proud and protective pet owners can secure their property and peace of mind without compromising the movements of these precious animals. This is only one of many reasons to invest in a Yale premium alarm system. These locks have been offering protection for almost 200 years and feature some of the most innovative advances during that time. A Yale alarm system can be customized to fit the need of any person or business.
Before this innovative system was designed the parents of precious pets had to make a choice. Most Yale burglar alarms operated on motion sensors; any movement inside a building triggers the alarm. Pet owners had choices; the favorite pet could be restricted to a single room or the motion detectors could be turned off. This innovative device is not triggered by animals or people weighing less than 23 kg or 50 pounds. These special monitors are mounted in areas family pets use. This Pet Friendly ESP Infinite Prime and WES Siren and Free Alarm Visual Deterrent Pack have special features including a built-in speech telephone autodialer. ESP WES siren features two way communications with the control panel. Intruders who remove the control panel activate the siren and calling alert. This Yale wireless alarm is designed in zones allowing people to customize the areas under security. These can handle up to 32 separate detectors zones controlled by a control panel, key fob, keypad or GSM dialer. Even the LCD display serves multi-functions as it is also an event log with the time and date stamp and a memory for 256 entries.
Many people think these types of security devices are to notify the owner when the property, pets and people are in danger. The real benefit in a Yale alarm is that it keeps the intruders from entering the property. 60% of residential burglaries fail when there is an alarm system; there are no statistics on how many thieves do not even attempt a break-in when they see these security signs in the yard, keeping property, people, and pets safe.
