Huge and Cumbersome

Roughly about twenty years ago, everything that had anything to do with technological communication was on the big side. Everything was huge and as such, were huge, cumbersome and primitive.  The motion sensors offered prime examples of the era with whopping huge energy needs provided by batteries that could last only for a couple of months. To make matters worse, users weren’t able to check on the condition of the batteries, the transmitting range was very poor was often interrupted by other domestic appliances.

Progress by leaps and bounds

When compared to the 80s, the progress made in the evolution of alarm systems has been truly astronomical and this is true of both wired and wireless alarm systems. At, we know that the level of improvement to alarm systems has been so huge it makes choosing a very difficult task. New tech additions like wi-fi, blue tooth and total mobile phone coverage have brought dramatic changes with positive features that are hard to ignore. On the same token however, they do have drawbacks which need to be taken into account when searching for the perfect system.

What is so good about wired alarm systems?

The greatest benefit of a wireless alarm system is that it doesn’t need wires to be attached to the system and makes the system simpler and easier to use. As you move further away from ground level, it makes good common sense to install a wireless alarm system that needs no wires attached. It is most likely that no allowance had been made for providing a cavity in the ceiling or holes in the ground floor for placing wires that would subsequently be attached to the alarm system. These cavities can be provided during the construction phase but they are seldom put in place.

Are wired alarm systems that bad?

Despite their inflexible construction nature of not being suitable for use in double storied buildings, the wired alarm system is perfectly at home in a single storied house. When the wire is cast aside from the two types of systems, the radio transmitter built into both alarms as well as all the electronics that populate the alarms are identical. The only difference between the two is the owner of a wired alarm system has to periodically change the batteries in about every five years, while the owner of a wireless alarm does no need to.
