Wireless Security Alarm?- which one is right for me?

Wireless Security Alarm?- which one is right for me?

One of the first decisions many people have to make when choosing to install a home alarm system is whether to opt for a wired or wireless solution.


The truth is that there is no universal answer, as every home and family is different and will therefore have unique needs and requirements that their security solution will be required to meet.

offer wireless detectors and wireless reed switches, perfect solution for two storey dwellings where cables to downstairs areas are very difficult.

For that reason, it's always a good idea to talk to a trained professional who knows the ins and outs of home security before

making a decision.

There are however a few things that you will want to keep in mind when considering whether to opt for a wired or wireless alarm system, including the level of installation you wish to undergo.

Wireless alarm systems obviously require far less invasive installation procedures, as they do not call for cables to be installed through walls and under floorboards.

That makes them a particularly good option for renters who might not be authorised to make in depth renovations to their home.
The Hikvision and Risco Alarm system are particularly suited to renters as it can be erected with removable adhesive. It provide camera snap shot integration.


Another thing to consider will be whether you might be moving property in the future. Wireless alarm systems are much easier to uninstall and transport as necessary and are therefore a good option for people who may not be planning on
staying in one house or apartment for long.

The flip side is that wireless alarm systems are much more dependent on battery power, which means that you will need to check them fairly regularly to ensure they are still running to specification.

The good news is that batteries in wireless alarm systems usually do not need to be changed that often - about once every six months at most - meaning it isn't something to be overly concerned about.

Both options - wireless and wired - have their own advantages and disadvantages, so make sure you think carefully about your options and make a decision that will be sure to keep your home and property safe for years to come.

Bosch Solution 6000 alarm system review

As a Bosch Security Certified Partner we know our Bosch security products inside and out. The Bosch Solution Bosch Solution 6000 was new to the market late last year, replacing the Bosch Solution 144. With an identical panel to the Solution 64, Bosch decided to enhance the features of the 64 and the 144 was born. The GSM module was our biggest selling point for the 144, customers are moving away from fixed phone lines in their home and Bosch has answered their calls. With further enhancements including very attractive bells and whistles the Solution 6000 was born. The pricing on this panel was slashed dramatically, customers now pay the equivalent pricing for the Solution 16 Plus as they do now for the 6000 saving 100's of $.

Do Wireless Alarms Need Wi-Fi?

Wireless alarm systems will not require Wi-Fi , at least not to communicate with its wireless components. The only time a wireless alarm would need Wi-Fi  is if it reports back to an app on a customer’s smartphone, to alert them of an intrusion or to allow them to arm and disarm the system remotely. For the system to properly talk with its wireless components , it would require a receiver. In some instances this receiver can be built into the main control panel, but more often than not it is a separate device that must be wired in.  This receiver uses RF frequencies to communicate with each wireless device, which will have a wireless transmitter inside.  These wireless devices have the same function as their hard wired options, for example a wireless detector is able to detect movement the same way a wired detector will.  The difference is how it transmits this signal back to the panel.  The hard wired detector creates an open circuit when it detects movement, tripping the alarm ins
