Wireless Security Systems Are They Reliable
With crime statistics rising, home security systems are a must have for modern homes. As
burglaries become ever more common, homeowners are feeling the necessity of protecting both
loved ones and material possessions. There are several different types of wireless security
systems on the market today. For home security, both wired and wireless home security systems
are available. Each security system has its advantages and disadvantages, which you need to
understand. The primary technology behind wired and wireless security systems is quite
different. As the name implies, Wireless security systems don't need to be hard wired they send
messages to the master control panel via radio signals.
When they were first available, wireless home security systems were more expensive and less
reliable than wired systems, but with improvements in technology, wireless is now the home
security system of choice for most homeowners. Compared to wired systems, wireless home
security systems offer much easier installation, since there are no wires involved. You need not
worry about an electrical power source nor a way of wiring to the master control panel, nor do
you have to tear up your walls or floors to run wiring for the system. You do have to replace the
batteries periodically in wireless home security systems, which is not necessary in a hard-wired
system. Wireless security systems use essentially the same components as do wired systems.
The touch pad, control panel, cameras, sensors, motion detectors, and alarm sirens are all
standard equipment in both wired and wireless security systems. Wifi companies rely on radio
frequencies to transmit the signals that are generated by the door contacts, window contacts, and
vibration and motion activated sensors back to the master control panel. Even in a wireless
security system, the master control panel usually runs on standard A/C house current, and has a
battery backup system so that it will continue to function in the event of a power failure or a
burglar cutting off power to your home. This feature, as well as portability and ease of
installation, are the two main advantages of wireless security systems, which otherwise operate
very much like their hard-wired cousins.
Both standard and wireless security systems allow you to install a variety of types of sensors,
including cameras and recording equipment, interior motion sensors, interior and exterior
motion-activated lights, door and window sensors, and even vibration-sensitive sensors that
detect attempts to break glass or forcibly knock down doors. Before you buy any home security
system, survey your home and determine the equipment that you need. Consider which areas you
most want to protect, and how you will do so. Be sure to buy a wireless security system that
allows for eventual expansion, since you may decide to add features such as driveway sensors,
cameras, smoke detectors and carbon-monoxide detectors.
Wireless home security is now reliable and very affordable, and if you are handy, a self-installed
wireless security system requires minimal skill and not much time to complete the job. Freelance

internet did for computers. Modern technology has made it possible for security alarms to need
less cables and cords. Wireless security alarms have several distinct advantages over their oldfashioned, cabled cousins.
Security alarms work by creating a circuit of electricity on points of entry on a building. Alarm
components are attached to places like windows, exterior doors and other locations where
someone would possibly try to enter or move through. The circuit closes when the door or
window is closed or no movement is detected. When the alarm is on, the circuit breaks if
someone tries to enter or is detected in the area, and this break triggers the alarm. It can also
trigger a call to a back to base alarm monitoring company. Regular, wired security alarms
receive power and deliver information via electric cables. Wireless security systems perform
exactly in the same manner as cabled security systems.
The idea is the same as a system of wireless computers using a single wireless internet source. A
wireless security system has a main control panel. This panel plugs into a phone jack and power
outlet and is what the wireless security devices connect to. Wireless alarm sensors are then
installed near the points of entry at various locations around the building, focusing on potential
areas of movement. These sensors send information to the main control panel. Communication
between the monitoring devices and the panel takes place in a wireless alarm system through
radio waves rather than by cables.
