How to Install Wireless Security Systems

It is not necessary for people to hire professionals for installing wireless security systems as they can undertake installation on their own.

The purpose of home security is to exposed unwanted intruders who are attempting to break into a house. They are exposed in such a harsh way that they are forced to run from the premises. Alarm systems are designed for this purpose and they can provide protection to homeowners and their belongings in the best way possible. There are different types of alarm systems that have been introduced in the past couple of years, but none are as popular as wireless security systems. These systems can easily be installed in homes for the purpose of monitoring entranceways that lead into the home and they will sound an alarm in the event when a burglar or intruder breaks in.

Setting Up:

While wired security systems can only be installed by professionals and specialized individuals, this is not applicable to the wireless security systems. People can simply purchase a wireless home security kit from a security alarm service or an electronics store. The system can be set up easily without the need of any special skills because it is a wireless network. All that people will need are a few common household tools for setting up the system.

Starting the Procedure:

A motion sensor module has to be placed on a bookcase, chair or table where it will have an unobstructed view of the door or window that needs protection. Ensure that there is a wall outlet for power nearby as the module needs to be plugged in it. If there is an external antenna present, it should be rotated for ensuring that it’s facing in the direction of the control panel, which will be installed in another area of the house. This procedure has to be repeated for all the motion sensor modules that are required for protecting all the accesses of the home such as the front door, garage door, a window facing the backyard or even a picture window in the living room.


The control panel is of the most important parts of the wireless security systems and it has to be screwed into a wall that’s next to the bed or somewhere in easy reach. The power cord of the control panel also needs to be plugged into a wall outlet for power. If there is an external antennae present, it has to be rotated so that it is in the same direction as that of the motion sensor modules that have been placed throughout the house. There will a battery compartment in the wireless security systems and they need to be inserted with fresh batteries. The lid of the compartment should then be closed. A ladder should be placed at the side of the house that faces the street and the wireless alarm module should be screwed into the wall.

Final Steps:

If the module has battery backup as well as a power-cord, the power cord should be plugged into a weather-resistant extension cord, which is then plugged into a light-bulb adapter. Now, the extension cord should be plugged into the AC outlet of an adapter. The extension cord should be affixed to the building with the help of a staple gun. The wireless security systems will now be installed and ready to use.
