Hardwiring Vs. Wireless Security Systems
While wireless security systems do have certain advantages, hardwired systems provide substantial, reliable security. Why the myth about wired systems being more susceptible to power outages or being intentionally cut is not necessarily true.
- Hard-wired alarm systems (which use alarm wiring to connect sensors to the control panel) are not disabled by cutting wires.
- Extended power outages equally affect wireless alarm systems as well.
Advantages of hard-wired security systems
Hard-wired security equipment is usually less expensive than wireless equipment. No batteries also means lower maintenance and added savings as well
Advantages of wireless security systems
Wireless systems tend to meet the requirements of modern technologies and offer certain expected conveniences
Hybrid alarm systems: wired and wireless
A hybrid alarm system allows you to take advantage of a pre-wired security system and add on any wireless equipment needed. Chicago Security Expert knows that every one of these systems is going to be dependent on each individual’s needs and situations based on existing equipment, desired equipment, and desired level and type of monitoring. We will work with you to develop and integrate a system best suited to your demands.
