Why Should I Choose an Orlando Wireless Alarm System?

By: Daniel Alicea

By definition, a wireless alarm system relies on radio signals transmitted over the airwaves so that each part of the system is connected by radio signals to the other parts of the system.

One benefit that comes with selecting an Orlando wireless alarm system is that no long wires have to be distributed throughout the entire house, making the wireless alarm system less obtrusive (especially if an intruder does manage to get in.) It is more likely that your Orlando wireless alarm system can catch a burglar or at least alarm everyone that a burglar or intruder has gained entry, compared to a wired system.

The Orlando wireless alarm system comes in two main varieties. One is the monitored type which means that an alarm within the house is triggered and a signal will be delivered to the central monitoring system. This type of wireless system may also feature a very loud alarm too. The second variety is the un-monitored type of wireless system, which means that the system will only set off a loud alarm but no person in particular will be notified that the system has been tripped.

The core of your Orlando wireless alarm system is the control panel that is usually installed somewhere remote and not easily accessible to outsiders, such as your closet or in your basement. The control panel continuously analyzes the signals being sent to it from all the other parts of the system to determine if there is cause to trigger an alarm or not.

For your windows and doors, your Orlando wireless alarm system will require the installation of magnetic switches which will notify the control panel when they are moved out of position, implying that an intruder has gained entry.

For your big rooms and large hallways, you may need motion sensors as well. Sometimes, heat sensors are used as well which can detect the body heat of a human when one has gained entry into your home. However, if you plan to use motion and heat sensors, it is not advisable to have pets around the secure area to prevent accidental triggering of the system.

Your Orlando wireless alarm system should rely on a keypad where you can input a specific numeric code which will give you easy access to your own home. Usually, such a keypad is set up at your home's main door.

You should check if your Orlando wireless alarm system relies on an independent power source too. Some such systems use batteries that only need to be replaced every few years or so. It is not advisable to use a system that relies on the same power source as your home because if a smart intruder cuts off your main power, then that means your security system gets disabled as well.

Lastly, examine the fine print of your contract with the service provider to check about how often parts of the security system need to be replaced and when it falls under the responsibility of the service provider to do that. Otherwise, you may have to pay for replacement parts and installation yourself.
