Have your kids been excited about Jurassic World lately?

Security is a family matter. After all, that’s probably the most important thing you’re protecting. It is therefore important to have discussions with children about how your security system works to protect your home. They will feel safer and have a better understanding of the situation if an alarm does go off.

Do you have a dinosaur-obsessed kid? Maybe they’ve always loved these giant lizards, or maybe they’ve just watched the new Jurassic World movie and want more. We were blown away by this action-packed adventure, and we thought it would be a fun opportunity to help teach kids about home security through a few choice comparisons.

Velociraptor Door and Window Sensors

Like your door and window sensors, velociraptors come in packs. These are highly intelligent dinosaurs who are always on the hunt. Their keen senses keep them alert at all times, ready to pounce. It’s a bad idea to anger these dinosaurs—or even catch their attention—since they are very aggressive with a low tolerance for territorial breaches. In your home, your door and window sensors are on alert, protecting your perimeters at all times.

Indominus Rex Control Panel


The Simon XT Control Panel is the single, main component of the security system, controlling all of the other equipment and packing an intimidating siren when set off. Similarly, indominus rex is the main attraction at Jurassic World, engineered by the movie’s paleogeneticists as a unique, genetic combination of dinosaurs to become a sort of master species. She is the most fearsome dinosaur created at Jurassic World. Other dinosaurs recognize her as an alpha species, and it therefore can control them. Indominus rex  also comes with a terrifying roar, estimated to reach up to 160 decibels, which is as loud as an airplane taking off or landing. The Simon XT Control Panel is not quite as loud, but it’s sure to scare off any uninvited guests.

Apatosaurus Touch Screen


The apatosaurus is known for its large size—so large, in fact, that for a long time it was believed to have two brains, one in its head and one in its tail. This latter hypothesis has been somewhat disproven; however, it is now understood that the apatosaurus did have a high accumulation of nerve cells in a cavity near the base of its tail to control lower body movement. These nerve cells could not function as a second brain. The touch screens that pair with the Simon XT Control Panel also have the ability to control parts of the security system, though they still rely on the presence of the Simon XT “brain.”

Tyrannosaurus Rex Motion Detectors


An iconic moment from the first Jurassic Park movie is the first encounter with a tyrannosaurus rex, when it is said that “He can’t see us if we don’t move!” As soon as a t-rex sees movement, the target is doomed! Protect America’s motion detectors never let any movement escape their notice. When armed, they will trigger the alarm at any hint of intrusion.

Dimorphodon Video Surveillance Cameras


This pterosaur soars the skies, watchful and vigilant. Its large eyes give this dinosaur very good vision so that it can hunt its prey even from a large vertical distance. Surveillance cameras can be placed anywhere in the room to provide an optimal vantage view of high traffic rooms. They’ll be able to spot any intruders who pass by.

Parasaurolophus Medical Panic Pendants


Easily recognizable by the prominent tube-like crests on their head, these dinosaurs are capable of signaling each other over long distances. The hollow crests allow them to amplify their melodic calls like blowing through a horn. Protect America’s medical panic pendants are used to signal for help, no matter where you are. They are an effective way to communicate with the right people so that the proper medical aid can be dispatched as soon as possible.
