Head to any leading retailer of security products today and you’ll find yourself faced with the choice of the standard alarm system and the cutting-edge alternatives of the wireless alarm system. Now, there’s little denying the fact that the latter of the two is 99% guaranteed to be more expensive than the former, which for most is enough to make their minds up as to which they’d be better off gong with. After all, just as long as it protects the property and does its job as it should, what does it matter if there are wires in the package or otherwise?
In order to understand the appeal of the wireless security products on the market right now, you need to think logically about the benefits they offer. In the case of a wireless alarm system, the first and perhaps most important benefit of all is that of installation. Remove the wires from the equation and you immediately remove most of the work required in setting up the system in the first place. It’s usually no more difficult than positioning the sensors, mounting the control panel and slapping the alarm box on the exterior – no running of cable and no drilling the living daylights out of the walls. From HDSDI CCTV to simple door alarms, installation of wireless security systems really couldn’t be easier.
But it’s not just about convenience either, as it’s worth remembering that installation of an alarm system has the potential to cost a fair bit in its own right. More often than not, a simple wireless alarm system for a home or office is the kind of thing that can be installed by anyone with even the slightest experience in DIY and a box of tools. As such, you can make the kinds of savings that completely augment the price difference of the security system in the first place.
Another key benefit of the wireless security system is the way in which each and every element of the setup as a whole will, or at least should, have its own dedicated power source in-built. What this means is that in the event of a total power outage the likes of which would kill a standard security system outright, the wireless system can go on providing the same security and protection for the building. Criminals often use the cover of darkness during power outages to carry out their dodgy dealings, so it’s god to know that if the power goes out, your alarm system doesn’t have to.
Last but not least, there’s always the chance you’ll decide to expand the alarm systems coverage in the months and years to come, which in the case of a wireless system really couldn’t be easier. Just like the initial installation, there’s no need to involve the pros and no need to take the whole thing back the drawing board with a huge construction effort – it’s usually no more difficult than buying the necessary sensors and positioning them as required.
