The very first alarm systems in the market were all hard-wired. Enter wireless technology, and you can now choose to have wireless alarm systems for your residential or commercial property.
Wireless alarm systems have several advantages, some of which are as highlighted
1. Easier Installation
Pulling cables through the walls makes installation of wired alarm systems quite tasking. With wireless systems, the installation process is much easier and takes less time. The system is also quite flexible, which means that you can expand or extend your system by adding more sensors later on with relative ease. That the installation process is not very demanding and does not involve too much work, translating into relatively cheaper installation costs.
2. Better Security Performance
Burglars and other intruders can easily sabotage traditional wired alarm systems by cutting the wires, rendering them useless in every sense of the word. Additionally, the exposed wires can easily sustain some damage, which may, again, leave you with a system that is practically useless. Whichever the case, your security will be compromised.
With wireless alarm systems, you don't have to worry about your property being vulnerable to security threats as a result of either of these eventualities.
3. Portable Assembly
Wireless alarm systems are very portable, and it will be easy for you to pack up and take the entire system with you when you move house and re-install it at your new location. It may be a little cumbersome to do the same with wired systems because you will need to trace the cables running across your property. Some property owners find the process too tasking and opt to leave behind some of the components, and particularly the cables.
4. Easy Integration For Smart Homes
The technology in your wireless makes it easy to integrate with other functions and devices in order to realise your dream of a smart home. You can integrate climate control and the operation of lights among other functions with the control system of your alarm and enjoy the convenience of smart technology. This means that you will be able to do more than just arming and disarming your alarm with the touch of a button.
Wireless alarm systems have several benefits as outlined. These systems are definitely worth the investment if you are planning on a new installation or looking for an upgrade from the traditional burglar alarm system you have on your property.
