Selecting a Wireless Remote Home Security System

Nothing replaces the peace of knowing that your family and property are safe. Modern advances in security technology make protecting what matters simpler than ever. However, many security systems can be daunting to homeowners. Not only are many systems expensive, but they can also be difficult or invasive to install in a house. Installation manuals are often unclear and wired connections make it necessary to drill into walls. They can be time-consuming and intrusive. This drives up costs since it forces homeowners to pay for professional installation. For many people, using a wireless remote home security system is an excellent choice, since these systems tend to be easy to install on your own and don’t require drilling or running wires through a wall. They’re also more affordable and as reliable as wired systems. This means there’s no sacrifice of quality for cost savings. Wireless systems also incorporate state-of-the-art security technology.

How Remote Home Security Systems Work

Wireless remote home security systems use a control panel or base station, which integrates different technologies into a central hub. The technologies act as the brain of the system. They may plug into an electrical socket and phone line, as well as be powered by batteries and use a cellular connection. The wireless sensors in the system send data and alerts to the base station. Wireless keypads, which are for arming and disarming the system, may be part of the base station or can be located elsewhere. These systems are designed to accommodate many kinds of sensors, such as break-ins, carbon monoxide, flooding, motion, smoke, and temperature. Whenever the system is armed, it’s prepared to receive data from the sensors.

When it receives an alert, the base station sends it to the homeowner via the Internet or mobile phone. Alarms can be set to go off inside the home. If customers have a home monitoring service, this service is also alerted. These systems use a home management system, like the Google Home Hub, to enable users to control home security devices from a single dashboard. The hub is integrated with these products to allow seamless use both from the hub and mobile devices. Users can access camera feeds in specific rooms or see who is at the front door. It also supports thermostat control and lets users access outdoor cameras.

Benefits of a Wireless Security System

  • Centralizes data: Uses a home management system to enable users to control home security devices from a single dashboard. The hub is integrated with these products to allow seamless use both from the hub and mobile devices. This service records round the clock video from security cameras for up to 30 days.
  • Easy installation: Allows users to easily install and integrate various security devices without having professional experience. Doesn’t require going through any walls or running wires. This is especially helpful with places that don’t support wires, like concrete walls, tile floor, or attics. Easy to move wireless systems to a new location.
  • More affordable: Wireless systems tend to be more affordable than other systems, as well as being constantly updated and customized with new sensors and features. They also provide subscription service options.
  • Sends notifications: Alerts can be sent to users’ mobile devices from the hub, which provides users with the convenience of accessing all their devices, updates, and alerts from one central location. Sends alerts when cameras pick up people, since it uses facial recognition technology.
  • Unique features: Some systems offer thermostats and indoor and outdoor cameras, video doorbells, alarm systems, door locks, and smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.  

Selecting a Remote Home Security System

When considering a wireless remote home security system, there are a few things to keep in mind. It should have enough options to suit many different kinds of homes. This ensures it’ll work well in any location. Buyers should consider the specific security needs of their homes. It’s prudent to begin with a simpler setup as you can always expand later. Certain options are likely valuable to the average homeowner, although every location is different. However, be sure to find out what you need for your specific location. Some areas may need flood alarms while others are outside floodplains.

In the event of a power outage, homeowners should ensure that plug-in base stations have battery backups to make sure that their security system will operate normally in situations like inclement weather. They may also want to include panic buttons, indoor or outdoor surveillance cameras, and door and window sensors. Other features include motion detectors, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as well as remote arming, disarming, and notifications. One important safety issue is to use firewalls for data security, since hackers can get in through these kind of systems
