Should I Invest in Wired or Wireless Alarm System?

Posted on 11th July 2019 by Wilson Alarm Systems Blog



The type of alarm system you invest in should be tailored to suit your individual security requirements. Wireless alarm systems are great if you don’t want to thread wires through your house and wired alarm systems do not require a battery to be changed, meaning service costs could be cut down. There are a plethora of other things to weigh up before you decide on the alarm system you would like to invest in. Our latest post will discuss wired and wireless alarm systems in more detail, helping you to choose the most appropriate system for your requirements.

Wired Alarm Systems

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 than wireless systems.

Further to this, wired systems can often work better than wireless systems in large homes or buildings as they can handle more sensors.

As we briefly mentioned, once a wired alarm system has been installed by a professional, it requires very little in terms of servicing and unlike a wireless alarm system, it will not need a battery.

Wireless Alarm Systems

One of the great benefits of a wireless system is its quick installation process. There is no need for drilling or installing wiring, meaning you save on installation costs. Of course, this easy installation process also means that you can easily remove your wireless system, particularly beneficial to those who are renting their home.

Arguably one of the most advantageous features of a wireless alarm system is that it is remotely accessible. With this technology, you do not have to go into the systems control panel to change the settings.

The flexibility offered by a wireless alarm system is beneficial for many. Wireless alarm systems can sync to other home automation devices and, allowing you to make modifications to your system so it suits you.
