Business Security Brisbane
The history of humankind also involves the history of natural disasters, invasions, and theft. These human interactions and events necessitated the development and use of alarms to warn the populace of potential and actual dangers. At the dawn of civilisation, bonfires were lit as warnings for impending natural disasters or enemy attacks. The first audible alarms were wind instruments and drums.
Other early alarm systems included dogs and livestock such as geese to alert people to approaching strangers. Although mechanical alarms are a fairly recent invention, the use of dogs pre-empted the basic principles of modern alarms with their use of sonic systems involving loud warning cries and growls. Unlike modern alarms, dogs also have the capacity to attack and 'mangle' potential thieves. Early homeowners may have also placed items in front of their doors at night so that if someone attempted to enter, a noise would be heard.
Church bells have also been used for centuries to alert people to invasions, fires, emergencies and other public events, in addition to calling people to worship. An English inventor named Tildesley invented the bell burglar alarm. This system used a link of bells placed so that when an intruder attempted to open a door it would create a noise, alerting home and business owners to the intended intrusion.
