Wireless Home Security
The installation of a wireless home security alarm involves no running of cables and more importantly, no home retrofitting. Using a radio frequency to send signals between satellite components and the control panel, wireless home security systems are quick to set up. The control panel is the main component, containing the keypad, audible siren, dialer and speakerphone and/or 2-way voice system if included. Other primary components include a power transformer, transmitter(s), wireless motion detector and a backup battery.
In addition to the variable initial and maximum zone capacity, wireless home security alarm systems may feature a built-in voice dialer and be compatible with X10 devices. Wireless home alarms allow for multiple user codes and may include a viewable event log for record keeping purposes.
