In today’s age, technology can offer you powerful protection at a very affordable price. To help keep your premises secured, you can choose either wired or wireless security systems. The objective of both these systems is to keep your home safer.
These days, however, most of the security system installation companies prefer wireless security systems. To appreciate the differences between these two systems let us consider the pros and cons of both systems.
WIRED SECURITY SYSTEMS
- No interference
As the whole system is hard-wired there is no scope for any signal interference.
- Control is available with few people
Its control is available only to a few key people.
- Difficult to install
There are plenty of wirings involved during the installation and thus it makes it quite tedious to install the system.
- Not too flexible
If you ever decide to move it to some other location or extend its range, again lots of work will be involved.
- Burglars can manipulate
If burglars can get access to the wiring of the security system then they can cut it to make the system ineffective.
WIRELESS SECURITY SYSTEMS
- More protected from a burglar
Here burglars have got no chance to tamper with the system.
- Easier to install
This kind of system is quite easy to install or move from one place to the other.
- Can be connected to your smartphone
You can also control the system through your smartphones remotely.
- More interference
There can be RF or other signal interference.
- Limited range of influence
If you have a bigger house then it may not cover it fully.
- Often battery may fail
If you fail to monitor the battery condition regularly then the system can fail during power failure.
With these points, you can understand the difference between these two types of security systems.
