The Pros and Cons of a Wireless Intruder Alarm System

The Pros and Cons of a Wireless Intruder Alarm System

  2012-11-30         sparksdirect         Advice » Smart Home System Advice

There are many good reasons to install a wireless alarm system like the Infinite Prime, but it is important to think about how to use it.

So why might one purchase and install a wireless system? Are there any reasons not to install a modern interconnected system?

There are some very good arguments for and against these systems, and we'll take a brief look at just a few of them here.

Note: this wireless intruder alarms may not be available at Sparks anymore; see the current offering of wireless intruder alarms here.

The Pros of Wireless Intruder Alarms

  • It's very easy to install and later re-fit the system if you decide to redecorate - or even move home.
  • Great for renters! Because the Infinite Prime alarm system is wireless, it is unintrusive: there's hardly even a need to tear the wallpaper, let alone rip the walls apart.
  • Fully customisable: the system can be expanded with modules that detect smoke or flooding as well as motion and shock for full home protection.
  • With this product there is little chance of interference with the unique secure transmission setup. So even if your next-door neighbor also installs Infinite Prime, the two systems won't activate one another / interfere with one another.
  • With the GSM module, the alarm can be connected to a mobile phone network so it can alert a call station, or even call an ambulance when the panic pendant is activated.

Wireless Alarms: Cons

  • It represents a higher initial cost than a hard-wired alarm system (but the savings over time are much higher).
  • Because the system is battery-operated, the batteries will need to be changed fairly regularly; the Infinite Prime system has an estimated battery lifespan of around four years.
  • The wireless protocol isn't really suited for larger properties; for the highest degree of safety in industrial or commercial builds, a hard-wired intruder alarm system is best.
A wireless alarm setup isn't a one-size-fits-all security solution; there are pros and cons to them. This is just a brief guide to the main points; for more guidance, feel free to drop by our showroom in Archway.
