So which is the better system?

In most areas there is very little difference between the two intruder alarm systems. For many, the deciding factor is whether or not their house already has a wired alarm installed or if the property is a new build or undergoing a refurbishment. If your house already has a wired alarm installed, replacing it with a wireless alarm has very little benefit.

If you do not have a intruder alarm fitted already, wireless intruder alarms are the simplest to install, with near identical performance to the alternative wired Intruder alarm. After all, wired alarm installations can be complex and time consuming task installing the cables.

Wireless intruder alarms can be installed in much less time and have a greater flexibility in terms of positing as there are no issues with unsightly wiring. This also means you can easily achieve optimum locations for your intruder alarm sensors.

You can position wired intruder alarm apparatus just as effectively, but you might have to sacrifice aesthetics due to cables running everywhere for the same effect. This is why the best time to install a wired system is if you are undergoing a refurbishment, the property is a new build or the cables are already in place and are in good working order.

In the end, it is these circumstantial factors that are most important in deciding whether to go wired or wireless.

Monitored Security Systems

For increased security you may wish to have your intruder alarm system monitored. A monitored intruder alarm is linked via the telephone line, GSM network or IP to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). An ARC is a permanently manned monitoring centre whose staff are dedicated to monitoring security systems and contacting the right authority.

Every CS Security Solutions intruder alarm all feature ‘intelligence signalling’, meaning that the precise details of any alarm activation is relayed to our alarm receiving centre. Our trained operators are on hand 24 hours a day to immediately respond to incoming signals.

Once an alarm signal is received the system is queried to determine that the alarm is genuine and the appropriate response is taken. It also removes the security threat presented by isolated premises where the alarm wouldn’t be heard by passers-by.
