Wired vs Wireless Intruder Alarms – Which is Best?

Intruder alarms are an absolute must if you want to deter burglars, keep your property safe and have complete peace of mind. But not all alarms are equal – and you’ll naturally want to get the best option for your property.

One of the key distinctions is between wired intruder alarms and their wireless counterparts. Read on as we explore the differences, and which is best for you.

Wired vs wireless – the basics

Wired intruder alarms – also known as hard-wired – are the traditional alarms that have been used in homes and commercial properties for decades. They’re hard-wired into your building’s electrics, which makes installation quite a complex job.

As technology has improved over the years, wireless intruder alarms have arrived on the scene. As the name suggests, they don’t need to be wired into your home or commercial property, making installation much simpler.

Which is better?

Both wired and wireless intruder alarms play an important role in your security system. They deter the majority of burglars and alert you, passers-by or even the authorities should anyone try their luck.

That said, as with most technological advances, wireless options do have their advantages.

Convenience

The obvious benefit of wireless intruder alarms is that there’s no need to drill into your walls to install them. That means no hassle of moving furniture in preparation and no patchwork redecoration afterwards. The system will be installed on your property in minutes, without disrupting your entire day.

Reliability

Because they’re not wired into your building, wireless systems aren’t reliant on the electric that powers the rest of your home. That means they’ll still be able to operate through any power cuts, giving you peace of mind, whatever happens.

Versatility

Beyond the wiring, wireless alarms are also typically more advanced than the hard-wired alternatives. This opens up more possibilities should you wish to add to your security system.

With wireless connectivity, for instance, you can hook your wireless alarm up to a smart security system which controls your cameras, lighting and more in one place. That’s less likely to be an option with a traditional hard-wired alarm.
