Door Sensors & Garage Door Tilt Sensors
Door Sensors: These devices act as the first line of defense, ensuring you're immediately aware of any intrusion attempts. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, the sensors can detect any unauthorized opening of your doors and relay this information to you in real time.
This allows you to promptly respond to any potential security breaches. They serve not only as a deterrent but also provide valuable time to alert local authorities if needed.
Tilt Sensors: Also known as inclinometers, these are specifically engineered for garage doors. They alert you as soon as your garage door is opened or in any way compromised, offering enhanced protection against potential intruders.
Any alteration in this angle triggers a notification, alerting you of any potential issues. This means even if an intruder tries to enter through your garage, you're immediately notified, enabling quick action.
Tilt sensors monitor even slight changes in the angle of your garage door, which could indicate mechanical problems or need for maintenance.
Window Sensors & Glass Break Sensors
Window Sensors: Enhance your home or office security with our specialized window sensors. These devices share the same highly efficient componentry as our door sensors, ensuring a unified and seamless performance across your security system. The window sensors are meticulously engineered to detect any unauthorized opening of your windows, triggering an instant notification to alert you of a potential intrusion.
Glass Break Sensors: Our Encrypted Glass Break Detector represents a breakthrough in property protection.
This fully-supervised and tamper-protected device can be conveniently mounted on ceilings or walls. It effectively detects the unique sound frequencies associated with glass breaking. You can monitor multiple windows at once, providing comprehensive protection against potential intruders.
Motion Sensors: This wall-mounted device provides broad coverage with wide-angle motion detection, ensuring comprehensive security within your premises. Utilizing a 345 MHz frequency for communication with the control panel, it ensures reliable and continuous surveillance.
One of the standout features of our PIR Motion Detector is its High (HI) Sensitivity Mode. When activated, this mode allows the sensor to monitor an impressive range of up to 30 ft deep x 50 ft wide (9.1 m x 15.2 m), providing an extended area of protection that's ideal for larger properties.
Furthermore, our motion detector is designed with pet owners in mind. Its innovative pet-immune feature can be adjusted to accommodate pets up to 55 lbs, ensuring that your furry friends don't trigger false alarms. This thoughtful feature allows you to enjoy a high level of security without compromising on your pets' freedom of movement.
Protect your property from potential water damage with our advanced water sensors. Engineered with the latest technology, these sensors effectively detect any unwanted presence of water, preventing minor leaks from becoming major issues.
As soon as moisture levels exceed the safe limit, you'll receive an instant alert, allowing you to act quickly and mitigate damage. Perfect for basements, bathrooms, kitchens, or any area prone to water leakage, our water sensors offer a level of protection that will provide you with peace of mind.
Sleek and unobtrusive, they blend effortlessly into your decor, offering reliable water detection without impacting the aesthetics of your property.
Advanced Smoke Detection
Synthetic materials burn faster and significantly reduce the window for safe escape from an average of 17 minutes to just 3-4 minutes.
Using advanced algorithms and a highly sophisticated optical chamber, this sensor accurately differentiates between smoke particles produced by synthetic materials and those associated with ordinary cooking activities.
This groundbreaking technology focuses on promptly activating an alarm when synthetic smoke is detected, rather than mistaking cooking smoke as a potential threat. Its strategic design not only adds an extra layer of safety but also provides unparalleled peace of mind, ensuring your home is equipped with a cutting-edge fire detection system that accurately identifies real dangers.
Fire Listening Sensors
Representing an effortless and economical approach to enhance your security, FireFighter's groundbreaking technology works by monitoring your home's existing UL smoke detectors.
Upon detecting an alarm, FireFighter immediately sends a wireless signal to the control panel. In turn, the control panel communicates with the central monitoring station, ensuring swift response to any potential fire incidents whether someone is home or not. This smart technology maximizes your existing smoke detectors' potential, turning them into a comprehensive, interconnected system.
You need only a single FireFighter unit to monitor all the smoke detectors within your property. This ensures seamless protection against fire hazards, making FireFighter an essential addition to your home security system.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide is a silent killer that is impossible to detect without the right equipment. Symptoms of exposure can mimic the flu, meaning a leak can go undetected until it's too late.
Our carbon monoxide sensors provide the solution, offering real-time monitoring and alerts. Using cutting-edge technology, these devices detect the presence of this dangerous gas at dangerously high levels, well before it poses a threat to you or your family's health.
Upon detection, the sensor triggers an immediate alarm, giving you ample time to ventilate the area or evacuate if necessary. This detection and alert process is critical. Ensure the safety and wellbeing of your family and employees with our reliable carbon monoxide sensors.

Using a platform like Alarm.com, you can even get alerts on your smartphone, view live footage, or review recorded videos from anywhere at any time, offering an added layer of convenience and peace of mind.
Garage Door Openers
Integrating a smart garage door opener into your home security system unlocks a new level of control and safety, and provides enhanced convenience and peace of mind. These systems leverage modern technology to give you direct control of your garage door from anywhere using your smartphone. This capability allows for real-time updates, meaning you can receive alerts on the status of your garage door, and even open or close it remotely, adding a new layer of access control to your home.
In addition, the compact and versatile design of these devices ensures they can blend in with your garage's aesthetic, becoming a subtle but powerful addition to your home security system. By incorporating a smart garage door opener into your home, you enhance the overall security, increase accessibility, and add a layer of convenience to your daily routine.
Automated deadbolt locks, also known as smart locks, are increasingly becoming an integral component of home security systems, enhancing the traditional key-and-lock mechanism with advanced technology. Their significance lies in their ability to offer you a more secure, convenient, and flexible way of managing access to your properties.
Unlike traditional locks, smart locks are difficult to pick or break into, providing a higher level of security. Many of these locks also have built-in alarm systems that can alert homeowners or security services of attempted unauthorized access or tampering.
These locks provide the ability to control and monitor access to your home remotely, a feature that traditional lock systems can't match. You can lock or unlock your doors using your smartphone from anywhere. This is particularly beneficial in cases where you need to grant temporary access to guests, service providers, or in emergency situations. There is no need for physical keys that can be lost or copied, and no worries about whether you forgot to lock the door when you left.
Integrating a smart thermostat into a home security system offers numerous benefits, not only enhancing home security but also significantly improving energy efficiency and comfort. These devices bring an advanced level of control over your home environment, and they can easily work hand in hand with other security and automation components in your home for a more comprehensive, connected, and secure system.
Many smart thermostats can detect unusual changes in temperature that could signify a fire or a broken HVAC system. In such cases, they can alert you or your security provider, allowing for swift action to mitigate potential damage. Furthermore, they can be integrated with other smart devices and security systems. For instance, you can set your lights to mimic occupancy based on your thermostat's schedule, potentially deterring would-be intruders. Or, you could have your smart locks trigger the thermostat to adjust the temperature when you unlock your door upon returning home, welcoming you with a perfectly comfortable environment.

This can help deter intruders and give you time to take action, such as calling the police or checking on your home remotely. You can also opt for 24/7 monitoring services that will alert your local authorities on your behalf.
Can I control the security system through my smartphone?
Yes, CAVES offers smart home technology that allows you to control your security system through your smartphone or tablet. With the touch of a button, you can arm or disarm your system, view live video feeds from your cameras, and receive alerts in the event of suspicious activity.
What happens when an alarm is triggered?
When an alarm is triggered, the security system will sound a loud siren to alert anyone in the vicinity.
