Security systems have grown by leaps and bounds over the past several years. In fact, personal security systems are estimated to top the $63 billion dollar mark in the next 5 years. That’s a lot of people thinking about their own personal security and how to make sure they stay safe. |
Traditionally, a hardwired system, one that runs through the electric and has wires running from door and window sensors to a control panel has been the standard, but with modern technology progressing by leaps and bound on what seems like a daily basis, the institution of a wireless burglary alarm system is, now, not only a reality, but for some, a preference. Let’s tackle why installing a wireless burglary alarm system for your home or business makes sense…or some might say that it makes cents.
Unlike the older, yet very capable wired security systems, a Wireless Burglar Alarm Systems protect your house or office without the use of cabling and wiring. This is important for a couple of reasons. If you look around the structure that you are going to have a security system installed in…or if you are going to take on the sizable challenge of doing it yourself, a wired system requires wiring. That means drywall and baseboards are going to have to be torn up, drill through and generally made a mess of. Because a wireless burglary alarm system requires no wiring, you escape the challenges of running the system wires through the house.
How It Works
Wireless burglary alarm systems work by sending signals from sensors to a control panel…but they do it through the stratosphere, sending a signal the tells the control unit that there has been a breach as opposed through a hardwire that runs from each of the structures sensors to the control unit.
Why Does It Make Sense
For the technically inclined, and even those not so technically inclined, a wireless burglary alarm system makes sense because it is, truly, a do-it-yourself type of project. As mentioned earlier, hardwiring a burglary alarm system requires drilling and drywall patching in order to run wire. Because a wireless burglary alarm system has no wires, there is no cosmetic damage that will take place within your structure when installing the unit. Imagine if you will, putting a control panel in the basement or main floor and having to run sensors to an upstairs bedroom…that’s major demolition work. Thanks to a wireless burglary alarm system, there’s no need to do that.
They other big bonus that comes by installing a wireless burglary alarm system lies in it’s portability. Think about it. If you have a hardwired system…it’s staying with the house or business…or you could simple rip out all the sensors and drywall and hole fill over every place you’ve had to run wire. With a wireless burglary alarm system, you simple take down the sensors and the control unit and, presto, you’re moving on.
Obviously, with anything that’s based on newer technology, wireless burglary alarm systems have some drawbacks. Feedback from other wireless components, be it routers or other systems, can trigger false alarms. The other issue, and perhaps the greater of the two, is that a wireless burglary alarm system can be disabled easier than a hardwire unit.
