Advantages to a Wireless Security System
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, home robberies occur every 12 seconds. While there are multiple security options available, here are five reasons why a wireless home security system is the superior option when it comes to providing homeowners with peace of mind.
- Easy Install
Simpler to install than traditional systems, the wireless security system keeps the hassle of running wires and drilling holes through walls, ceilings, woodwork, and concrete to a minimum. When choosing to go wireless, motion detectors, glass breaks, door contacts, and window contacts can be placed wherever activity needs to be tracked. And, the addition of extra devices is also hassle free.
- Flexible Options
For decades, dating back to the old “tin can” systems, home security systems have been a purchase that only homeowners could justify. Not today, wireless systems are so convenient to set-up that even a renter can have the assurance that their residence is secure with a top of the line system. Because of the convenient set-up, take down is just as easy. If you move homes, you can take your wireless system with you.
- Less Vulnerable
With hardwired security systems the homeowner is exposed to vulnerabilities such as power grids, phone lines, and internet connections. This means whenever there is a cut line or power outage a hardwired system becomes inoperable. Wireless systems are not vulnerable to such scenarios. A battery powered back-up keeps the system operating when power is lost. Wireless systems are resistant to savvy criminals who can cut phone lines or power lines. Some systems also protect against “crash and smash” attacks, alerting professional monitoring stations even if the security panel is damaged or destroyed.
- Provides a Platform for Whole Home Solutions
Wireless systems utilize wireless communications, making them ideal for home and vacation properties without the need of a phone line. With advancing technology, wireless systems now offer activity notifications and system alerts to keep you alert of activity on your properties. Today, there is automation. You now have the option to control lighting, temperature, door locks, and your security system from anywhere using your smartphone.
- Simple to Troubleshoot
An added benefit of a wireless security system is that if a problem arises it can be identified and often fixed by the installer remotely. Many times wireless systems will even do their own troubleshooting and notify you of the problem.
A homeowner’s home is their sanctuary, a place to go and rest, find comfort and have a peace of mind. When considering a security system to keep your home safe and secure consider the advantages of the wireless security system.
