When choosing an alarm system, there are several decisions that you have to make. But one of the most important decisions is choosing between wireless home alarms and hardwired home alarms. In most cases, wireless alarms are going to be your best option and here are three reasons why that’s true.
One of the reasons that many homeowners opt for wireless home alarms is because they don’t run on electricity. If a burglar was determined to get into your home while you were away, they could shut off the electricity to your home. But even more important, if there is a power outage at your home or in your general area, it could leave you vulnerable to an intruder. With a wireless home alarm, though, battery power is used to keep the alarm active. As long as you remember to replace the batteries on a regular basis, you can benefit from a wireless home alarm system.
Another great thing about a wireless home alarm system is that they are less expensive to install than the hardwired systems. With a hardwired system, the alarm professionals have to run cords through your walls and attach the various components of your system that way. But with wireless home alarms, the technician can hook up the components through radio frequencies and other WiFi signals that require little to no wiring at all. This is less time consuming and it takes fewer resources which means less expense to you. In many cases, you can even hook up a wireless home alarm system yourself, but it’s always best to leave it to a professional so you can be sure it’s done right for keeping your family safe.
Thirdly, one of the main benefits of installing wireless home alarms instead of the hardwired alarm in your home is the range. With a hardwired system, you are often limited to the range that the wires can reach. If you have a large area of land that you want to protect, it can be difficult to run wires to the perimeter of the property without being noticed. But with a wireless system, you can have sensors hundreds of feet away and mounted inconspicuously so you can be alerted if someone enters your yard. You can create a huge net of protection that extends all around your property with very little effort or cost.
These are just a few of the benefits of wireless home alarms. With help from a professional, you can have one installed today!
