When a house is structured it has different entry point and you therefore need to make sure that you choose a security system that has as many sensors as the entrance points that you have.
The other key issue that you need to consider is the monitor in points of your alarm system. When your alarm system is triggered you need to have people who will react to it and come and help you out and secure your home.
