What is the difference between a wired and a wireless system?
A hard wired system uses wire to connect all sensors to the control panel. Therefore, each and every sensor will be connected by a network of low voltage wire placed throughout your premise. In most cases it is not hard to wire a system especially if the installer can easily access your attic or if you have an undeveloped basement or simply a basement ceiling that is not accessible.
A wireless system uses no wires to connect the sensors to the control panel. Signals are transmitted and received by radio. The main benefit to a wireless system is that it is very easy to install and move.
Concerning dependability both systems are considered equals, especially since the major advancements in wireless technology. A SecurTek dealer can work with you to choose a system that best suits your home or business. There are also hybrid systems available through SecurTek that use both wired and wireless technology.
