Choosing Between a Hard Wired or Wireless Alarm System
One of the first decisions many people have to make when choosing to install a home alarm system is whether to opt for a hard wired or wireless solution.
Often the answer is pre-determained by your construction conditions. If your home is single or two storey in nature.
The truth is that there is no universal answer, as every home and family is different and will therefore have unique needs and requirements that their security solution will be required to meet.
Bosch alarm systems offer wireless detectors and wireless reed switches, perfect solution for two storey dwellings where cables to downstairs areas are very difficult.
For that reason, it's always a good idea to talk to a trained professional who knows the ins and outs of home security before making a decision.
There are however a few things that you will want to keep in mind when considering whether to opt for a wired or wireless alarm system, including the level of installation you wish to undergo.
Wireless alarm systems obviously require far less invasive installation procedures, as they do not call for cables to be installed through walls and under floorboards.
That makes them a particularly good option for renters who might not be authorised to make in depth renovations to their home.
Are Wireless Systems any good?
Both options - wireless and wired - have their own advantages and disadvantages, so make sure you think carefully about your options and make a decision that will be sure to keep your home and property safe for years to come.
The Risco fully wireless alarm system is particularly suited to renters as it can be erected with removable adhesive.
It provide camera snap shot integration.
Another thing to consider will be whether you might be moving property in the future. Wireless alarm systems are much easier to uninstall and transport as necessary and are therefore a good option for people who may not be planning on
staying in one house or apartment for long.
The flip side is that wireless alarm systems are much more dependent on battery power, which means that you will need to check them fairly regularly to ensure they are still running to specification.
The good news is that batteries in wireless alarm systems usually do not need to be changed that often - about once every six months at most - meaning it isn't something to be overly concerned about.
