Burglar Alarms

Do you operate your burglar alarms?

How do you prevent people from holding doors open and triggering an event
(when the system expects the doors to be clothes within x seconds)?

Yes I do, and simply put, we don't. I find rocks, chairs, road cones,
tennis balls, etc jammed in doors everywhere. You'd think at a school
they'd know better. Anywho...
Most alarm systems have an input for a door sensor, and can tell when
the door is left open for too long, and they also have a contact
closure or a low voltage relay as an output. You should be able to
trigger that output when the door is open too long. A buzzer mounted
above the door connected to this output might provide a sufficient
annoyance to stop people from wedging it open. I've heard of people
doing stuff like this, or tying each door to an LED/Buzzer on a panel
in their reception area. In the latter scenario, the receptionist just
taped paper over all the LEDs because they were annoying.

If you're getting door open events, you already have the sensors, just
look for the output on the panel. If it's +5/12 Volts, just hook a
buzzer up. If it's just contact closure, you'll need a power supply too.

I've got an old house so it has a burglar alarm built in. Sqeaky floors (trust me, I've tried *****-footing around and it just isn't gonna happen)

Plus a Toy Fox Terrier with radar ears that pick up mouse farts who will then bark at any foreign noise.

Re: Burglar Alarms

I was thinking more about at work. 🙂

But I'll recommend Terriers! 🙂

Make sure that you have a piercing alarm which goes off after the door
exceeds the time threshold. We don't do it ourselves, but I have seen
it done at Auckland airport - seemed to work well to deter the airport
staff to stand in the doorway talking to each other 🙂

Re: Burglar Alarms

Even better, have it go off randomly like at 2:00 a.m.

Like when the stupid batteries in the smoke alarm decide they go bad. It's ALWAYS at some odd hour in the morning.
