Home defense is always a hot topic in the survival community — after all, everyone wants to keep their families, property and supplies safe. Sure, home security systems are great at deterring the average prowler, but what happens if the power goes out? How can you ensure you have advanced warning of a potential threat?
The experts at Survival Dispatch are sharing six methods of setting up perimeter alarms, both store-bought and DIY.
From repurposed smoke grenade tops, to using over the counter options such as Sentry Alarm Mines, these aren’t simply rocks in a can. Most of them utilize blank ammunition that’s fired when the trap is sprung. When they go off, you will definitely know.
Advanced warning can be the difference between life and death in a survival situation. Not only will these alarms give you the chance to prepare for a potential assault, they very well could scare off an adversary before they venture any further. After all, the sound of a gunshot in the middle of the night is enough to dishearten all but the most desperate raiders.
