Should I Invest in Wired or Wireless Alarm System?

At Wilson Alarms, we believe no matter which alarm system you install, it should always be tailored to meet your security requirements. Although both wireless and wired security alarm systems are great options, we’ve established key aspects both to help you decide what is best for you.


Wired alarm systems do not communicate using a radio frequency through sensors, so as long as the wiring for the system is in good condition they are often more reliable. 


Wireless alarms are quick and easy to install and don’t require any drilling or wiring. They can also be easily removed, which is particularly beneficial for those who are renting. A wired alarm requires professional installation and wiring, although it won’t need replacement batteries.


Arguably one of the most advantageous features of a wireless alarm system is that it is remotely accessible, so you don’t have to access the control panel to make any changes. Wireless alarm systems can sync to other home automation devices, allowing you to make modifications to your system. However, wired systems often work better in large homes or buildings, as they can handle more sensors.
