Owning your own condominium can be rewarding, and keeping it safe and secure with a wireless security system is easy. Remember, certain areas outside of your condo may be considered common areas that are shared with fellow residents in your condo community, so it is very important to choose wisely when selecting alarm equipment for your new home alarm system.
A hardwired security system is generally a good fit for a single-family residence, unless there are obstacles to overcome during the installation, such as high ceilings or lack of crawlspace for wire runs, in which case a wireless security system would be ideal.
Some condo owners, on the other hand, do not all have the luxury of deciding which system they want to install: a hardwired or a wireless security system. This is simply because most condominiums are set up in a way that wire runs may not be easy, e.g., no attic to run wire through. If wire runs are possible, the next obstacle a condo owner may face is getting the condo board’s approval to install a hardwired alarm system in their unit.
Not only does installing a hardwired security system involve skilled low voltage electrical work, it consists of drilling holes in walls to mount alarm equipment and running wires to areas where protection is desired. A wireless security system does not require any holes to be drilled to mount alarm devices, there are no complicated wire runs, and no electrical work needs to be performed whatsoever.
Many condo owners have made the decision to go without any local sound on their home alarms and opt to have their wireless security system monitored instead. While sound is certainly a deterrent, nothing beats having an alarm monitoring center there 24/7 to take swift action in the event your home alarm system should ever activate.
