The LED siren will last the longest.If it is possible choose the large siren box with multiple indoor sirens to provide the loudest alarm siren and deter potential intruders.Siren boxes with red lights are not available in Australia, blue light is the preferred colour for a siren box.

Wireless motion detectors are often use in two storey homes where cabling is difficult or impossible to get to the bottom level, once the construction is completed.

For this reason customers choose wireless motion sensors.

Other difficult places to get to are garages or rooms where cabling would be difficult to get to.

Wireless motion detectors are dependent on battery power, you will need to check them fairly regularly to ensure they are still running to specification. Your alarm system will send notification for a low detector battery every 2-3 years.
