Just How Easy Is It To Install Wireless Alarms?
Research shows that a burglary occurs every 40 seconds in the UK. About 56% of these burglaries occur at night, and a staggering 57% occur when someone is present in the house. Recent surveys have shown that houses without security alarms are three times more likely to be broken into than those with an alarm system.
You may believe your house is perfectly safe with a security system installed, but if it is an old-fashioned, wired security alarm you’re talking about, your house is only a little more secure than one with no security alarm at all.
Crime surveys have shown that the nature of crime has evolved technologically, making traditional security systems inefficient. Today, home security demands a system that is modern, technologically advanced, yet user-friendly.
More and more people are switching to wireless alarms, because of the multitude of benefits that are associated with them.
No drilling, no wires
To install wireless alarms and setup the system is easier than its traditional counterparts in many ways. First, the entire process involves no holes, no drilling in your walls and no tangled wires.
Secondly, these alarms can be placed at any location without needing extra wiring, which means even your barns, sheds, outhouses, and most importantly, your garage are under protection – it is possible to add as many as 12 devices on a single alarm set-up!
Traditional alarm systems require professional intervention for both, set-up and modification. Going wireless, on the other hand, means that you don’t rely on an external installation expert to set up the security system of your house – the process is entirely do-it-yourself.
You can set it up yourself, get it working on the same day (yes, wireless alarms need no activation time) and modify it to suit your needs. It is merely a matter of plugging in a wireless control panel, adding your wireless receptors inside the home and activating the system.
Versatile, simple and aesthetically pleasing
Wireless alarms are also extremely versatile – they allow you to add smoke and flood detectors; have wireless keyfobs for arming as well as disarming, which can be pre-programmed to alert the security panel when a particular family member is home.
Add to that the possibility of having several panic buttons (again wireless), which when pressed will dial pre-set distress numbers. These alarms are also designed to be aesthetic, not clumsy or shabby looking, which means they blend with the decor of any house.
Wireless alarm systems come without the hassle of creating and remembering difficult codes. They are also much more economical – you save on the cost of professional installation, the electrician and the subsequent drilling-and-wiring, which amounts to lavish sums when you consider wired systems and the yearly replacements/upgrades they require.
Secure your house with a wireless alarm in a few well-spent hours, and give yourself a security system that is convenient, cost-effective and reliable.
