Whether you’re protecting your home, or looking for business security systems in Michigan, we all sleep easier knowing we’re protecting what’s important to us. But as with everything else in life, there’s a catch: a system that doesn’t cover all the fundamentals is fundamentally flawed, so if you’re shopping for a new security system, don’t just browse on price. Look into the installation, design, monitoring, and key features like the way that system communicates with its owner and the outside world. We find that wireless security systems from Vigilante Security offer a number of advantages to their owners.
Why Go Wireless?
Good question! There are five good reasons to consider a wireless security system.
It’s More Secure
A wireless system has no wires to cut, and is much harder to bypass or work around. That makes your home or business a harder target. There’s an added bonus: with battery backups, you’re assured of protection in the event of a fire, power outage, or other events that could disrupt or disable a traditional system.
Some things don’t need full-time coverage. For instance, if you’ve moved your guitars and amplifiers into the garage so you can practice for the summer, you definitely want to protect that space. Pool’s open? It’s a good idea to have an alarm on the gate, especially if you’ve got younger kids. But once band practice comes back inside or the pool is drained and secured for the winter, you can move those sensors.
A wired system has a built-in limitation. If your home or business changes, you’ll need to run new wiring to expand the system. Building an addition? That’s more wires. Need to add new components to beef up your coverage? More wires. Want to integrate smart home features? Yep, you guessed it. Wireless systems scale up (or down) easier than the alternatives.
“Smart” features, from video doorbells in our homes to advanced access and environmental controls in our businesses, are quickly changing how we live and work. If you’re using networked or IoT devices, a secure wireless network is a more effective way to tie everything together.
It’s Often More Cost-Effective
Effective security doesn’t come cheap, but many of the advantages offered by wireless solutions — including ease of installation, effective monitoring, and remote diagnostics — also help to keep costs under control. It’s also worth bearing in mind that many security systems will result in a savings on insurance, so that’s something to discuss with us and your carrier.
Wireless Security Systems from Vigilante Security
For all their differences from other methods, the wireless security systems offered by Vigilante Security Systems still have three things in common with their more traditional counterparts.
- Design matters, since a system with gaps is one that’s easier to bypass or exploit
- Installation matters, since out-of-the-box solutions won’t provide the same coverage as those built by professionals
- Monitoring matters, since it’s always good to have an extra set of eyes on your premises when you can’t be there — and we assume you’d like to sleep sooner or later
It’s safe to say that we’re all cost conscious. Whether you’re a homeowner working within a limited budget or a business owner keeping an eagle eye on your bottom line, that’s to be expected. However, there are other costs involved — not least of them the value of the property and people you’re protecting — so don’t cut corners.
