Protecting your home and property from intruders is a priority and wireless burglar alarms are one of the most common ways to accomplish that safety. These alarms systems can be placed into two main categories: those which sounds an alarm at the premises when the sensors detect movement or those with monitor systems where the alarm signal reaches an outside security company via a telephone line. Some wire free burglar alarms only warn against intruders while a combination alarms can sense a break in, fire or carbon monoxide. Many wireless alarm devices on the market are Do-it-yourself, which means they can be fitted by yourself which saves you the cost of hiring a technician to do the installation. They can be simple to install and you choose the locations of where you would like to place the sensors with no wiring required through walls. It will also have a main control panel which will have to be installed close to the door but in a spot where it will not be visible to an intruder looking in through a window.
Wireless burglar alarms can also be monitored, which means the alarm systems come with the benefits associated with monitoring and maintenance service. With this system an intruder may not be aware that he has set off the alarm immediately and once two sensors have been triggered, the security company will alert the police who in turn will respond to the situation. The wire free alarm can usually be activated with a key fob or keypad. These alarm systems have different ways of detecting intrusions from sensing broken glass when a window is broken, sensing movement through the sensors or even security cameras placed in strategic places around the property. The latter can be helpful in identifying the burglar if an investigation follows after a burglary.
When it comes to price, wireless burglar alarms can be more expensive to buy than their wired counterparts; however the cost of installation of the wired systems makes the overall cost significantly more expensive than the wireless option. There has been concern about the possibility of hacking into these wireless security systems although it is considered to be unlikely in terms of the high level of skill it will require to do so. A burglar is usually in a hurry so taking the time to hack into a system can be the reason they are noticed and caught. With wireless burglar alarms you also have the option to expand and improve your system as technology develops. A few years ago most alarm systems only detected intrusion and fire but currently there are security systems with sensors that detect flood and even shock and vibrations.
