Security Advantages in a Wireless Age
Wireless technology is everywhere: WiFi keeps students connected to the Internet no matter where they roam or where they set up shop. Cell phones, which are connected to global wireless networks, keep families texting and in-touch. Personal digital assistants (or PDAs) keep business travelers up-to-date and linked-in with their offices, despite the miles that may separate the two. So if wireless is being used in the devices that keep people communicating and connected, it is no wonder that it is also quickly supplementing or replacing hard-wired implementations in office and home security systems. Unrestricted by cumbersome wires and cables, wireless options have many advantages of their old counterparts.
For various reasons, home and business owners may see the need to install video cameras to watch over their commercial and residential property. An intruder can't cut the wires of a wireless system, which makes it harder to bypass the system and eliminates the risk of an undetected break in.
Many customers have cited that they opted to install a home alarm system only after wireless technology was made available. Why? Because they were not comfortable with a host of cables crisscrossing their house, and thus never wanted to install a system that required them. Renters especially, unable to drill or make cosmetic changes to their properties, lacked alarm options before. However, times have changed. Compared to hard-wired systems, the installation of a monitored wireless option requires minimal drilling. Consequently, the system fits seamlessly into homes. New customers will no longer have to choose between aesthetic value and reliable home security; wireless technology has simplified and concealed the tools that will keep you safe.
Wireless Keychain Remote
Using wireless technology homeowners have one more convenient way to manage their security systems. With the touch of a button, from almost anywhere in the house, this wireless remote can arm or disarm a home's entire system. That means if you happen to go to bed only to realize that you never set the alarm, you won't have to get up to arm it; using your keychain, you can do it from the comfort of your bed! This handheld device literally puts home safety in the palm of your hands (which is especially handy when entering the house with an arm full of groceries). Gone are the days of struggling to enter your numerical code, baby and groceries in hand, before triggering the system; with a remote, homeowners can juggle their milk and enter their home peacefully.
Enhanced Monitoring Capabilities
Many home alarm systems have outsourced their central controls to outside of the United States, but with the right provider, you can have domestic service ready and waiting. Along with monitoring potential burglar activity, wireless technology allows alarm companies to go above and beyond their traditional services. With optional upgrades you can install water and freeze sensors, which notify the company of temperature shifts, who then will notify you with a call or email. No way, right? They can also monitor your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors.
There are no limits to what wireless technology is capable of; and luckily for business and homeowners nationwide, wireless advances are making already reliable security systems that much more safe and sound.
