What is Wireless Security?
Wireless security is exactly what it may sound like to you.
It’s a way to connect your security system in such a way that’s it is… wireless.
In a few simple words, a basic home wireless network means connecting an internet access point, such as a cable from your internet service provider, to a (wireless) router in order to allow multiple devices to connect to the network very quickly.
Now whether you live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina or elsewhere, we are certain you have access to WiFi.
Using a wireless system, you can turn your home into a Smarthome!
Let’s explore why a wireless security system might be the best next step for your home or business.
Is Wireless Security Better Than Wired Security?
This is a loaded question, for sure!
Hardwired alarm systems may have an edge on reliability, while wireless systems provide a more streamlined installation and can be used in places where wired systems can’t.
“Wireless vs. wired security” refers to two different parts of the security system.
The network of sensors, plus the control panel, make up a self-contained system that may be wired or wireless. Then there’s also the way that this security system connects to the outside world; like sending alerts to a remote monitoring center or receiving commands from your cell phone.
If your home does not have a security system pre-installed, wireless systems can solve several problems. You won’t have to worry about drilling holes or other modifications, making wireless an more attractive option for renters, historic homes, or buildings with significant interior brick, stone or marble construction. Renters or homeowners who change residence will also be able to take advantage of the portability of most wireless systems-simply disconnect and reconnect at your new address.
