Who Is It For?
A wireless home security system usually appeals to the following users:
- Parents who want to make sure their kids are safe at home, after they come back from school, and no adult is at home to supervise
- Pet owners who want to keep an eye on their pets, whether they’re up to some mischief, or feeling sick
- Those who live alone and have valuable possessions at home, who want to secure their home when they’re away.
- People who shop online frequently can check if their package was delivered.
Components of a typical home security system:
- Control panel: Main controller of a home’s security system that communicates with each component, and sounds an alarm when it knows of any intrusion.
- Door and window sensors: Informs the control panel if a breach occurs
- Motion sensors, both interior and exterior: Protects a given space (usually rooms containing valuables) and informs the control panel if a breach occurs.
- Wired or wireless security cameras: Installed to keep an eye on remote/distant areas, can be accessed remotely on computers, smartphones, and tablets
- A high-decibel siren or alarm: Loud enough for neighbors to hear.
- Yard Sign and Window Stickers: May look like marketing tools of alarm companies, but tells burglars that you home is professionally protected and not worth attempting a burglary.
Top Benefits of Wireless Home Security System
Here are top benefits of using a wireless Home Security System, as opposed to using a wired systems (which have existed for a long time now).
- No wires
Wireless systems are modern systems, in keeping with the time, and instead of wires, the various components communicate with each other via radio signals.
- Easier to Install
Because there are no wires, the installation process is much smoother in case of wireless systems. Wireless systems do not need to be connected to your home’s electrical system and do not disrupt the interior of your house.
Because of the fewer components, wireless home security systems are more portable; it can easily be dis-assembled and reassembled at another location. Wireless systems are also easy to deactivate/remove in-case you no longer want a security system.
- Does not depend on Electricity
Wireless systems can operate on battery power, which means they will continie to operate and monitor, even if the power is out.
- Modern Features
Most modern Wireless systems stream live video feed of your home to your work computer or smartphone. They can even send alerts (via text or email) when someone enters or leaves your home.
Any Drawbacks of Wireless Systems?
Wireless systems are more susceptible to interference (from other electronic devices). But that can be lived with. There are some more:
- False alarms: This is what some burglars try out, and that is to confuse the owner/authorities by sounding a particular alarm over and over again within a short period of time. This way, when the thief sounds the alarm for real, the homeowners may think that the system has gone crazy and probably ignore the alarm.
- Hacking garage systems: Again, most burglars have figured out that most homeowners usually don’t lock the door between the house and the garage. So it makes an easier target to hack the garage system.
- Getting unauthorized access: There are many who think that wireless systems can be hacked into and burglars can get unauthorized access. However, that is easier said than done (its difficult for most burglars), and companies ensure they take care of most vulnerabilities.
