Home security has always been a vital element of our lives. It is said that we are most vulnerable when at the confides of our houses. This has led to a stable demand for home security products which has fueled innovations in the industry in 2016.

The innovations range from low-budget systems that are meant to mimic live systems to the complex pricey systems that enforce lock-downs in the event of burglary. These are the top home security systems that we are going to look at through this post.

Innovations are more concentrated at the average price. This is the price that the middle income household can afford. Here the gadgets are a little bit smarter and pricier than those at the lower end.

Premium home burglar alarm companies

1. Burglar busters

Specialist security companies, most with military arms, tend to have divisions that specialize in home security systems. The products are quite expensive compared to products at other price ranges. Burglar busters which are quite expensive are set up to produce noxious gases when triggered.

The household that can afford these systems are basically not looking to protect their TVs or fridges from them, they can afford the insurance for that. The main concern is their personal security.

2. burglar blasters

Innovations like the burglar blasters are meant to knock out large teams of intruders. The gases in the blasters may include concentrated pepper sprays, inert gases that may last up to 24 hours and other motion deterrent gases.

These systems cost north of US $50000 and are considered among the most effective and expensive systems. The systems work perfectly with alarm systems as their triggers. They are as well available online and they come with a do it yourself manual, minimizing the amount of people with access or knowledge of the existence of the systems. These fall under the alert and capture systems.


In conclusion, the home security industry has tremendously advanced to an extent that living without a security system can be termed as negligence. The industry provides a reasonable system for whatever budget any user may have. The above are some of the best systems available online at the price ranges however, more effective systems which require presence of man power are available.
