Home security systems are becoming a necessity with increasing break-ins. There are many kinds of home security systems, which can have one or many kinds of devices working together. For centrally monitored security systems, there are options of choosing between wired and wireless security systems. Citiguard Protection Service discuss the advantages and disadvantages of wired and wireless security systems.
The technology of wired and wireless systems is quite different. Wireless systems do not require wiring throughout the house but send messages through radio signals to a central panel. Wireless security systems are convenient to install as there is no need for wiring. This saves time, money and chaos of ripping floors and walls to place wires all over the house. However, wireless security systems are expensive and there is also a recurring cost of replacing batteries.
The advantage of wireless systems lies in easy relocation of components. A wireless system can also be shifted from one house to another. The basic components are the same as in any security system consisting of control panel, touchpad, alarm, detectors and cameras.
Wireless home security systems use radio wave frequencies transmitted by windows, door contacts and motion sensors. Touch pads at entrances enable activation and deactivation of the wireless system whenever needed. In case of power failure, a backup system comes into action thus providing continuous security.
Many kinds of wireless home security systems are available in the market and some are DIY kinds. It is better to consult professional and reliable companies who can survey the home, suggest suitable equipment in the required budget, and do a proper installation.
