The most basic definition of any security system is generated from its name; it is literally a means or method by which something is secured through a system of inter working components and devices. With the help of the latest development of technology, it is possible to secure people’s lives, industries, schools, organizations, and homes using an alarm security system that will monitor, guide and protect against burglar and abductors, because of the rate of theft and abduction in some parts of the world is increasing by the day; this imbibes fears that become a threat to the peace and economic development of any society or country nowadays. It is paramount to find viable technologies that will secure the lives of humans as countermeasures to tackle this kind of problem. This paper will review literature related to security alarm systems, different types of sensors used in the security system, advances in its technology, and disadvantages of installing the security alarm system and the importance of installation for security purposes in which most of the papers I read did not.
