Hard-Wired Intruder Alarms


Hard-Wired Intruder Alarms

Hard-wired intruder alarm systems were the only options available for the protection of homes, businesses and other premises in the past. Hard-wired alarm systems are essentially systems that have wires which connect the various components of the systems such as the door and window sensor, motion detectors, etc. with the control panel.

Advantages of Hard-Wired Intruder Alarms

Low Equipment Cost and Maintenance

Hard-wired intruder alarm equipment is quite inexpensive and affordable. Also, once it is installed, hard-wired systems require lesser maintenance and hence the maintenance costs are much lower.

Greater Reliability

Usually, the hard-wired intruder alarm system comes with a heavy-duty metal housing. The system has a separate keypad and allows the user to keep the alarm panel hidden in some safe place such as the basement where it is not easy for an intruder to access and tamper with the system. Such a design enables the security system to work even if the wires are cut between the alarm panel and keypad.

Greater Transmission Distance and No Signal Interference

With a hard-wired intruder alarm system, you don’t have to worry about the transmission distance and the signals can easily reach up to around 900 feet. Also, you don’t have to worry about problems such as signal strength or interference in the signals in the case of a wired system.

Today, despite advancements in intruder alarm technology and the rising popularity of wireless security systems, hard-wired intruder alarms are still widely used due to the many benefits they offer.

Hard-wired intruder alarms features are:

  • The system has a very large expansion capability
  • The reputation of the dependability of a hardwired system
  • The detection units have no batteries to change
  • Fully hybrid system with support for hardwired and wireless peripherals
