What Are The Advantages Of Wireless Security Systems Over Hardwired Security Systems?
Traditionally, security systems require an installed landline or an on-site control box, which are used to notify the proper authorities in the event of a security breach. However, a burglar could disrupt the emergency communication process by simply snipping the landline or smashing the control box, meaning break-ins could occur without the police or emergency units being alerted.
OmniGuard Security’s wireless systems eliminate the possibility of a thief rendering the system inoperative by altering the way breaches and activity are relayed to emergency personnel. Rather than sending signals through a landline, which can easily be cut, wireless systems utilize cellular wireless GSM technology to transmit alarm activity to an off-premises central monitoring station, which then notifies the appropriate units. Not only do wireless systems reduce operational costs associated with landlines, they also provide a far more secure means of monitoring a residential or commercial area.
How Are Wireless Security Systems Installed?
Within a matter of minutes, a security system can be installed – if it’s wireless-based. Whereas hardwired systems come with an extensive, invasive installation process that requires holes to be drilled and wires to be run through walls, wireless systems are comprised of sensors, control panels and cameras that attach to surfaces via adhesive tape. This tape won’t leave marks on surfaces or damage paint, and it can be easily removed and repositioned to change with your needs or move with you to an entirely new location. When compared to traditional hardwired systems, OmniGuard Security’s wireless systems are safer, much easier to install and movable for ultimate versatility.
How Are Wireless Security Systems Accessed?
One of the main appeals of wireless security systems is that they can be accessed remotely on a computer or virtually any smart device, such as a cell phone, tablet or even a smart watch. When you’re away from your home or business, you can easily check to see what’s going on at your property through your mobile device, viewing real-time video feeds of monitored areas from across the room, across the city or even across the globe.
In addition to being able to watch live video streams remotely, you can also adjust the settings of your wireless system through your mobile device’s screen. Arm or disarm the system as desired or create an automatic schedule thanks to OmniGuard Security’s suite of free, intuitive mobile apps. When you’re not at your property, you’ll receive instant text or e-mail notifications, alerting you of an intrusion or when motion is detected at a monitored area, such as when a door or window opens.
