Regardless of whether you’re searching for a commercial or residential alarm system, a wired alarm system can be a great choice when it comes to protecting your home.
Fortunately, the team of qualified electricians at Homefront Electrical have installed countless wired alarm systems, so we know whether it’s worth investing in these systems.
What is a wired alarm system?
As the name suggests, a wired alarm system is an alarm system that has been hardwired into your property. A wired alarm system can refer to both how the control panel connects to the monitoring centre as well as how the motion sensors communicate with the control panel.
Unlike the wireless alternative, this means every sensor shares a physical wired connection to the control panel. This often extensive network of wires is typically neatly concealed within the walls and flooring of your property to ensure a smart and appealing finish.
It’s worth mentioning that a wired alarm system can also refer to how the equipment is powered. For example, wireless alarm systems are battery-operated, whereas the wired alternative is simply connected to your mains electrical supply via a standard socket in your home.
Are wired alarm systems obsolete?
With the evolution of technology and wireless communications, wired alarm systems have become less popular over the recent years. However, a wired alarm system can still be a suitable choice for some homeowners and business owners as they’re well-known for their reliability and durability.
Not to mention, wired alarm systems tend to be much easier to use – especially for individuals that are less familiar with using new technology and smartphones which are often used to control wireless alarm systems.
Is it still worth having a wired alarm system?
If you value reliability above a quick and easy installation, then you may want to consider a wired alarm system. With a wired alarm system, some of the biggest benefits include the fact that there’s no signal interference and no battery maintenance.
However, it’s important to note that these systems often require professional installation by a qualified electrician (which typically comes at an additional cost). Not only are these installations often more expensive and time-consuming, but they also require cuts to be made into walls and flooring.
Plus, these wired alarm systems are also susceptible to power cuts and aren’t portable. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that every property is different, meaning an alarm system that works wonders for one home won’t work well in another.
As a result, every property should be thoroughly assessed to determine which entry points require monitoring and whether a wired or wireless system would be best. For a professional opinion and help choosing the right alarm system for your home or business, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the friendly team of expert electricians at Homefront Electrical today.
