Wireless Alarm Systems are one of the most valuable assets to have in a home today. These systems were first brought into the security market in the mid 1980’s, but had a lot of critical flaws upon the initial launch.
The main flaws for wireless systems had to do with the lack of technology thirty years ago.
Wireless consumables are used by the majority of all the people in the world now in one form or another, because of this all the technology has been stream lined for basic user understanding. Anyone who purchases any model for the home will be easily able to understand the functions of wireless alarm systems by reading the user manual. A user manual is included in the box.
If a decision has been made to have a professional do the installation then the company representative will go over all of the different user functions with the home-owner.
Why are wireless units better?
For a business professional that is on the go. Wireless units are ideal. Traditional alarm systems for the home are wired in, and can be very tedious to install and to maintain. Several wires have to be run to different sensors on windows, doors, and all available entry points in a home.
These wires will either destroy the clean cut look of a home, or will cost a fortune to have run through all the different walls in a home. Unlike simple intruder alarm systems, the wireless versions have no unsightly wires running in the home, and have a wide array of features.
A great feature for business professionals that are rarely at home is the ability to program the alarm to ring your mobile. This will alert the home-owner when something is happening and they are away from home.
This feature allows the owner to directly make a report to the police. Several phone numbers can be programmed into these units. This ensures that as many people as possible are alerted to the fact that something is not right, and makes it a very high probability that the authorities will be alerted.
With the rise in crime and cuts in the police department, the authorities are much more apt to check out a possible break-in when it is reported by an actual person and not an automated phone machine.
Theft is at its absolute highest in decades, and yet many people are still not taking any necessary steps to ensure it does not happen to them. Wireless alarm systems are not only for the obvious threat of burglaries and intruders in the home. These systems also have varied features to protect the home-owner when they are at home, such as carbon monoxide alarms and flood alarms.
Lights can be dimmed and brightened with a remote control, and much more. Intruder alarm systems are the most common household alarms, but it is always worth a bit more money for extra security, as robberies can only get worse in the climate today.
