An alarm system comes in three categories – a wired system, a semi wired system and a wireless system.
A wired system is one where all the sensors are connected to the control panel with wires. The cables are usually run through the roof, so you won’t be able to see them.
Benefits of a wired system: never have to change the battery.
A wireless system is one where the sensors relies mostly on batteries. We have wireless systems which relies completely on batteries and ones which are semi-wireless (like alarm pack 3).
Benefits of a wireless system: allows sensor access to areas which are usually not possible, especially for double / triple storey homes or homes with no roof access.
If your home in Single storey with roof access, we will recommend a wired system.
If your home has no roof access OR its a double/triple store and your home isn’t prewired, then we recommend a wireless / semi wireless system.
