Wired and Wireless Options
A wireless security system usually refers to a system where no wires run from the control panel to the doors, windows, motion detectors, etc. Often people install wireless due to no landline connection or because they don’t want to worry about drilling holes to install a wired connection.
A home already pre-wired or if it currently has an old hardwired system, then typically we’ll use the wiring that’s there and update the components. A lot depends on how many doors and windows are currently wired vs not. All hardwired systems have wireless capability these days with component upgrades if the existing system isn’t capable.
If you’re like many people who only have 3 wired doors and a motion, we recommend a wireless system. The wireless systems are more advanced and have more features out of the box. They are also usually less expensive.
If you don’t have any wiring and your home is finished, we advise you to go with a wireless system unless you must have with a keypad or another feature that you can only get on the hardwired system. Often there will still be some wireless components like door or window sensors.
WIRED OR WIRELESS IN A NEW HOME?
If you’re building a new home or office or remodeling one of the two, then it depends on your situation whether you should go wired or wireless.
Consider the six points below to help make your decision.
- It requires two to three times the labor to pre-wire and then return to finish the installation. So it takes longer and multiple visits to install a hardwired system. Because it takes longer, it also will cost more because of the labor involved. The technician needs to run the wires for the security system before they install the drywall or sheet rock. (They should do it preferably before the insulation as well.)
- A hardwired system is more a la carte and custom then a wireless system. This means it will likely be a larger investment to do hardwired. But there are some really nice things you can add to a hardwired system. The wireless system comes with lots of features out of the box.
- A hardwired system has the keypad separate from the control panel and it’s usually smaller. Does that matter to you? Most people don’t care about that, so they go with wireless.
- A wireless system will need batteries in the door and window sensors and the motion detectors. If you have a good quality system, the batteries will last you 5-10 years. So the batteries are not really an issue since you won’t be changing them very often, if at all.
- You can take a wireless system with you when you leave. You can’t take a hardwired door sensor with you (since it involves wiring in the walls).
- Most of the time if it is pre-wired, there are some wires that will get cut, pinched, or broken in between the pre-wire and the finishing installation. This is usually from the many other contractors in the home. This means the homeowner pays for the pre-wire and then has to pay for a wireless sensor for the windows and doors if the cut wire(s) can’t be located.
In most cases, we would recommend wireless systems but always work with you to evaluate your personal situation and needs.
