Wire Free Alam Systems

The use of wirefree alarm systems has increased considerably in recent years. This is mainly due to technological advancements in wireless alarm components. This is also due to the approval given by the ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) for the use of wireless burglar alarms for law enforcement response. However, alarm systems would have to comply with supervision standards set in the British Standard BS6799 Class 6. Class 3 and Class 5 wireless burglar alarms are still unacceptable for law enforcement officials in fact, Class 3 alarms are often low-quality, do it yourself alarms. Thanks to the official endorsement by the ACPO, alarm systems for consumer use started to gain a foothold in the market. Hybrid systems and completely wirefree burglar alarms are manufactured by a large number of companies, including Scantronic, FM Electronics, and Honeywell.

Knowing what to look for when purchasing a wirefree alarm system can help keep your home safe while providing you with significant savings. The main advantage of wirefree alarm systems is their ease of installation. Unlike wired burglar alarms, wireless devices do not require the installers to disrupt the client’s home and lifting floors or drilling into walls. Unlike most major installation projects, wirefree alarm systems allow installation without major inconveniences. Installation is also considerably faster than in the case with their wired or hybrid counterparts.

Some features to look for in a Wireless / WireFree Alarm System include speech dialers, which can automatically contact various numbers to signal an alert and a digital communicator. One of the most useful features in wireless burglar alarms is GSM radio signalling. With this, the alarm can be monitored 24 hours a day by a specified ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre.) If you are willing to spend a bit more, look for a wirefree alarm system with two-way audio, messaging, and voice prompting. Modern alarm systems often can be integrated into your smartphone and controlled remotely with a specific app. Most importantly, ensure that your alarm system complies with EN50131 PD6662 Grade 2 so that it will be convenient for law enforcement agencies and provide for an appropriately fast police response.
