An efficient way to safeguard your home and property is to install a wireless digital security system in your home or business. The rapid advancement of technology these days allows people to keep a constant watch on their property without having to install a hard-wired security system, yet the efficiency of wireless systems is not compromised.
A wireless digital security system is a combination of high-tech equipment installed for the purpose of detecting burglars or intruders inside an establishment or a home. The monitoring system commonly consists of video surveillance cameras or digital cameras, sensors, sound attenuation motors, and motion detectors.
It is fully wireless and has built-in power supplies, making it independent from other electrical facilities within your home. This means that even if your home’s phone, internet connection and power are down, the security system continues to protect and monitor your property. This feature will come in handy in the event that an intruder cuts the phone lines and power lines within your home.
The two dominant types of wireless security systems today are the self-installed or DIY systems and the professionally-installed systems. While both systems offer wireless monitoring benefits, there are differences in their features.
The self-installed security systems are often very easy and simple to install and most of these systems don’t require monthly fees to a monitoring company, but are limited in their application.
A professionally-installed security system comes with dedicated monitoring capabilities through 24/7 monitoring of a private monitoring company. This company-monitored system comes with a monthly fee, but you will get a full-service monitoring team that will alert authorities in case of intrusion, fire, or any emergency occurring in your home or establishment.
HOW DOES IT WORKS?
A wireless security system works by communicating or sending radio frequency signals to the system’s control unit. Some systems are designed to use infrared beams. Once the system is armed or triggered, the detectors keep track of the surrounding area for motion which actually registers a difference in temperature, and then sends the signal to the system’s control unit which results in the setting off of the alarm.
The system also collects substantial evidence in case of intrusions or break-ins and records the activities captured by the system.
The significant advantage of a wireless system over its hard-wired counterparts is that it doesn’t require wires to be run through the partitions of your home. It also eliminates the need to hire a professional installer because almost anyone is capable of properly installing it.
Some wireless systems can be simply plugged and played. You can also link up the wireless monitoring system to your computer so you can monitor your home or establishment online even when you’re not at home.
You may even link it to your phone. This enables real time monitoring of your property even when you’re in a distant location. The wireless digital security system is an outstanding tool in keeping an eye of your property.
