The Advantages of a Wireless Security System

Apr 13 2015
By untethering your home from old, wired security technology, Alarm.com's wireless Smart Home Security solution makes life safer, smarter and more efficient.

Our wireless technology keeps you informed of the important things happening at home and easily grows with you so that your Smart Home solution adapts to your changing needs.

When you're choosing a security system, consider these five reasons to go wireless with Alarm.com.

1: It's More Secure

Alarm.com systems use a secure cellular connection that is fast and reliable, enabling real-time awareness and alerts from your home, and combating many of the vulnerabilities you'll find on other types of system. For example, there is no exposed phone or cable line to be cut from the outside of the house that would render a traditional system useless.

Traditional wired home security systems are also vulnerable when your power, phone or Internet service goes out.  Alarm.com's wireless security system uses a secure, dedicated cellular connection and battery-powered back-up so that that an alarm will always be signaled in an emergency.  This also means that your home automation will still work: your lights can turn on to deter people, and your HVAC system can shut down in case of fire so you don't blow smoke through the house.

2: It's Easier to Install, With Faster Support

With Alarm.com, it's easy to replace an existing system or add a new one. Our nationwide network of authorized dealers will help you identify your needs, configure the best solution and then install your hardware.

Our huge selection of security panels, wireless sensors and devices will help meet your needs, match your décor.  They are easy to install and often times you can use the existing sensors from an old system – meaning there's no need to tie yourself to the out of date system that came with your house. If you do need new sensors, you won't need to run wires through your home.

Another big benefit of the cellular connection is the improved ability for your service provider to support and troubleshoot from their customer support center. In the past, every issue with your wired system required a visit from a technician. Now, with Alarm.com, dealers have ‘over-the-air' tools that remotely access your system to quickly identify and even fix issues on the fly.

3: It's Flexible and Versatile

Because wireless sensors are easy to move (and add), you can use them to keep track of all sorts of unique things around your home, with real-time alerts that keep you aware of what's happening.

Door and window sensors are small enough to keep tabs on a medicine cabinet, monitor the gate to your pool, or make sure that a safe isn't accessed without you knowing right away.  This will increase the awareness of what goes on within your home, not just on the perimeter.

  4: It's Easy to Expand Your System

As you and your family grow and change, your needs change too.  Alarm.com's wireless technology is portable, flexible, and adapts to you.

With a child on the way, you might want to add a camera to your nursery – no problem. When your kids become more mobile, you can add extra sensors to kitchen cabinets or the freezer. If you're travelling more for business and need to hire a petsitter, it's simple to add a smart lock to let them come and go.

No matter what you may need to add in the future, you can be confident now that your security system will expand when the time comes.

5: It's the Foundation of a True Smart Home

The Smart Home platform that powers Alarm.com's Smart Home Security systems supports a full range of connected devices that go beyond security to make your home smarter and more efficient.

You can easily upgrade to see what's happening at home with HD video, manage your energy use with a smart thermostat to save money, and control access to your home with automated locks and integrated garage door controls – with everything controlled through a single app.

We continually add new capabilities to our wireless solutions too, so you don't have to worry about being locked into a technology that doesn't keep up with the latest developments in the Smart Home industry.
