Five Benefits of Wireless Home Security System
Wired home security systems have been around for many decades. As the name suggests, the systems use wires run throughout the house to connect sensors and motion detectors to the central control panel.
Wireless systems are newer, but quickly growing in popularity. Instead of wires, the components communicate via radio signals. Read on to learn more about some of the pros.
1. Easier to Install
The installation process is less painful with wireless alarm systems. Unlike wired systems, they do not need to be connected to your home’s electrical system. And the process does not require much disruption to the interior of the home. With a wired system, it takes great time and effort to hide all those wires underneath walls, baseboards and carpeting.
2. Easier to Move
Unlike wired systems, wireless home security systems are portable. If you move, they can be disassembled and brought along. Transporting a wired system from one home to another is a waste of time, money and resources. You’re better off just buying a new one.
Wireless systems are also easy to remove if you decide you no longer want a security system.

Wireless systems tend to cost less, mostly because they are much easier to install. Installers won’t have to spend hours burying wires behind walls, baseboards and carpeting. The time they save translates into significant cost savings for you.
