Wireless Home Alarm System

Understanding The Benefits Of A Wireless Home Alarm System

If you aren’t familiar with how a wireless home alarm system works, there’s no need to be embarrassed because most people assume they work the same way your cell phone does. To an extent, this is true, but a wireless alarm system uses radio waves to communicate between the receiver and peripheral components, such as motion detectors and magnetic contacts on windows or doors. If contact is broken or motion is detected, a signal is sent to the receiver or the control panel and a remote call is made for help, assuming you have a monitoring service or have it programmed to dial via a cell phone.
