For many decades, security system manufacturers have relied on the same fundamental principles and technology in making their systems i.e. wired networks and fixed telephone lines. However, advancements in technology have seen the introduction of commercial Wireless Security Systems, otherwise known as the “free” systems.
The Benefits of Wireless over Wired Systems
1. Saves time and money
Setting up a wired network is both time-consuming and expensive. Wireless Security Systems on the other hand, are very quick to install and configure. Even though the individual wireless equipment and devices may sometimes cost a bit more than the conventional devices, not having to lay a network of wires provides sufficient cost savings to compensate for this.
2. Avoid the mess
Running wires around the facility is quite messy. It involves drilling holes in the walls, installing cable brackets, panels and other accessories. With wireless networks, the drilling is unnecessary.
3. Take your system with you whenever you move
One of the greatest disadvantages with wired security systems is that they are permanent. If one has to move from their current business premises, it would be difficult to remove the system or would require an additional outlay of cash to do so. The same cannot be said of commercial Wireless Security Systems. These systems are very easy to install and remove. Hence, they can be moved from one facility to the next.
4. More Secure
The Achilles heel of the wired security systems is their reliance on telephone landlines. Burglars could easily disable the system by cutting the wires. This cuts off the connection to the emergency response center, giving the criminals ample time to break in. Wireless Security Systems on the other hand, don't have any wires to cut. They come equipped with independent GSM communicators, which eliminate the need for a fixed line connection to the central monitoring station.
5. Secure hard to reach locations
There are various locations within the business premises that might be impossible and even dangerous to run wires through. In such circumstances, wireless systems provide the solution.
