Wired Alarm System
When Alarm Systems first came on to the scene EVERYTHING was hard wired in to your home. Wireless technology had
not yet been invented – at least not for home security. Hard wired Alarm Systems have come a long way since the
early days and are a tried and true method to home
No Distance Limitations
Unlike Wired Alarm Systems, Wireless Alarm Systems have distance limitations. So if you have a very
large home or a large property
with multiple buildings you could have trouble getting signal to travel well in your home. When we say “large”
we mean bigger than your average property (large mansions, businesses, etc).
Most wireless Alarm Systems have an open air range of about 500ft. This is perfect for almost all home
No Sensor Limits
Another limitation to wireless Alarms is the amount of alarm sensors you can use with one Control Panel. Many
Wireless Alarm Systems have a sensor limitation of about 40-50 sensors. This will not affect the average
homeowner, but again, someone with a large home with an abundance of doors and windows could come close to this
Time & Money
Wireless Systems components are slightly more costly than their hardwired counterparts. However, the
installation time for Wireless Systems is shorter and there is much less hassle compared to a Wired System. When
examining the maintenance costs of a Wireless System, you need to take into consideration the cost of replacing
the batteries of the wireless devices every few years. In general, hardwired systems are maintenance free.
