Many of our clients in and around Essex are looking for convenience as well as security when it comes to choosing their alarm. And the rise of digital technology has led to a huge increase in the use of wireless burglar alarm systems.
As their name suggests, they don’t rely on wires and cables to function, and today’s systems are more sophisticated and reliable then ever. The main advantages of a wireless system are they are easier to install, they’re portable and you can upgrade them with extra sensors or other components at any time.
Some wireless burglar alarm systems use smart technology which can integrate into your smart home, and they are tamper-proof, so there is no risk of disabling cables or removing devices. In addition, most systems run on batteries and will work non-stop even when there is no power supply, while the control panel comes with back-up battery power.
The benefits of installing a wireless system to your Essex home or property are obvious, but which alarm is best for you? There is a wide range of choice and it’s easy to be confused by the different solutions available, so here’s our look at the pick of the crop.
