Wireless Alarm Systems are very popular and economical due to the ease of use and ease of installation. They tend to be very cost effective, as generally there is little or no need for any form of cabling, except for the mains. ( If optional Alarm Monitoring is required, some wiring of the external bell box and phone line would be required)
The Wireless Alarm System ‘detectors’ can be placed in any positions that are suitable to the owner, without the need for any disruption, making it easy to install and inn order to conserve battery power, motion detectors operate a sleep period of approximately 3 minutes.
Wireless components (motion detectors, vibration detectors, beams, smoke detector) are very similar to that of a hardwired alarm system. they work in exactly the same manor. All wireless components would operate by a signal being sent back to the control panel, the control panel would act as a receiver.
Wireless Alarms are the ideal security solution for apartments or town houses, and it is possible to ‘relocate’ a wireless system … however… you would need to relate your intentions to your installer at time of installation, as normally devices are screwed to windows and walls. In the case of rented accommodation, you would need to obtain landlord permission for this.
NOTE: Wireless devices require batteries (internally) and so will need regular replacements.
