A Breakthrough in Home Security

Catrina Caforio, Asia Stawicka, and James White





     Although the burglar alarm might seem to be unnecessary, the invention of the electric burglar alarm has dramatically improved safety of our homes and has distinguished the difference between public and private areas. Safety is important to everyone currently living in the early 20th century, especially in the city, as well as personal space and valuables. In order to make sure these things are properly protected, burglar alarms must be installed in homes across the globe.


     In 1858, Edwin T. Holmes, known as the "Father of the Burglar Alarm Industry," purchased the rights and made improvements to Augustus Pope's burglar alarm, originally invented in 1853, leading to our current alarm system. This amazing piece of technology uses electricity in order to set off the high-tech alarm and notify the police of a burglar.
