Object protection is for items that are considered likely targets for burglars. These include items such as safes, gun cabinets, computers, and filing cabinets. Although object protection can be used in isolation, such as in a bank vault, it is typicafly used in combination with perimeter and or area protection. It can also be used as a local alarm not reporting to the monitoring station to keep young children out of medicine cabinets, gun cabinets, or cleaning supply cabinets. In this case, these cabinets are always armed and the local siren reports when any one of these objects has been opened.
