Recent advances in digital technology have made wireless home alarm systems possible throughout the Amarillo TX area. Once upon a time, alarm systems were reserved for government entities and large corporations. Now security systems are a simple, affordable way to protect virtually any home, condo, or apartment. If you’re thinking about investing in a wireless home alarm system to protect yourself and your family, consider the following benefits wireless systems have to offer.
Simple installation, upgrading, and maintenance
Wired security systems are expensive and invasive and are time consuming to install. With a wireless system, there is very little risk of having to drill holes in the walls or ceiling. The average homeowner can get the entire system up and running in a single afternoon. You’ll have complete control over the placement of the door and window sensors, motion detectors, video cameras, and other security features, ensuring you receive full security for your property.
Standard wired home security system leave a homeowner susceptible to theft and vandalism when the phone line, power grid, or internet connection is severed. Criminals are aware of these risks and may cut a line or other connection before attempting to break into a home. Wireless security systems boast battery powered backup that keeps running even when the power goes out. Some wireless systems also offer protection against “crash and smash attacks,” alerting authorities of issues even when the security panel is damaged or destroyed.
Over time, your security needs may change or you may decide to upgrade your equipment. A wireless home security system makes it easy to remove and add components as needed without switching out the entire system. Most major home alarm providers have dedicated maintenance staff on call to address any issues that arise so you receive professional service in a timely fashion.
Remote monitoring capability
No one wants to stress about the state of their home when they’re in meetings all day for work or out of town for a vacation. You can pair your wireless security system with virtually any smartphone, tablet, or computer with internet access to monitor the property remotely. Check out what’s going on inside or outside the home via the live feed or pull up archived footage. In addition to making sure that no one is breaking into the home or vandalizing the property, you’ll know exactly what’s going on with your kids, pets, and elderly family members.
Smart home capability
Wireless home alarm systems are able to sync with modern smart home features so you can control varying home systems from your smartphone or tablet. You’ll be able to arm and disarm the security system, turn on and off the lights, adjust the temperature and humidity, lock and unlock the doors, and more. You can also equip your system to send text or email alerts in the event of unusual activity.
