Grand Alarms delivers the most advanced and reliable technologies available today, and modern business alarm systems are available using traditional "hard-wired" alarm systems, or alarm systems based on newer wireless technology.The choice between wired home alarm systems and wireless home alarm systems has been hotly debated by business security professionals for many years. Wired alarm systems have always been the standard for reliable maintenance-free operation, but can be more complicated to install. Wireless alarm systems are generally easier and quicker to install, but they suffered a reputation for poor reliability and a tendency to generate false alarms—until recently.
Recent technology advances have greatly improved wireless home alarm performance, boosting the functional reliability of today's wireless home alarm systems closer to that of traditional wired alarm systems. In fact, modern "hybrid" security alarm solutions successfully blend both technologies, but key differences favor using one technology over the other in certain circumstances and with certain types of business construction.
Wired home alarms systems from Grand Alarms are wired directly through walls to a central control panel. Wired systems installations generally conceal all wires connecting motion detectors, window and door contacts, and other sensors connected to the central control panel. The "hard-wired" design is highly reliable, and virtually eliminates the possibility of false alarms.
Wireless home alarms systems from Grand Alarms usually use small radio transmitters operated by small internal batteries to communicate with a central control panel. The transmitters wirelessly signal the open-or-closed status of doors or windows to a central control panel. Improvements in wireless technology have greatly improved reliability and reduced false alarms, but wireless alarm components require periodic lithium battery replacements to maintain an operational business security system.
Today, "hybrid" alarm system solutions are available from Grand Alarms that contain a mix of both hardwired and wireless components. In some installation situations, using traditional wired components is simply not feasible for technical or aesthetic reasons. Wireless home alarm components can be substituted in situations where you wish to avoid unsightly wiring on wall or floor surfaces, or when installing traditional wire runs is too costly or complicated. Wireless alarm systems usually cost a bit more than wired systems, though wired systems can cost more to install. Regardless of which type of system from Grand Alarms you choose, our professional installation will ensure reliable security for your business, home and family for many years to come.
