Is a Wireless Security System Right for Your Home?

If you’re looking to install a home security system, you’ve probably wondered if a wireless alarm system is best.

EMC Security can help guide you in selecting a security system that’s right for you.

Q: What is a wireless security system?
A: A wireless security system is the next generation of home security technology. Instead of using wires installed in the walls and ceiling, wireless security system components connect to the main security control panel via Internet or cellular communications. Because of the ease of installation, many wireless systems can be installed by a professional or homeowner. EMC Security’s wireless systems have the option of an EMC Security professional installation or easy DIY set-up for as low as $179.

Q: Are wireless systems as reliable as wired security systems? What if my Internet service isn’t reliable?
A: Modern wireless security systems are continuing to evolve and are now as equally reliable as traditional wired systems. EMC Security’s wireless systems communicate with the monitoring centers via Internet connection. Members also have the option to add cellular connectivity, if there’s a concern about Internet service. In addition, members can apply UPS battery back-up to the network router to allow continuous monitoring in the event of a power outage.

Q: Why have wireless systems become more popular for homeowners?
A: Wireless systems are easier to install and can be expanded with additional accessories, sensors and third-party devices, like security cameras and video doorbells. They also don’t require drilling for installation and have no wires or cables to hide. EMC Security’s wireless DIY systems are portable and can be relocated by members.
