Operating a Wireless Security System

Because they are still a new phenomenon, people are now aware of what is entailed by a wireless security system and they need to know in order to make the right choice.

As opposed to wired security systems, the point of a wireless security system is to provide a home with intruder detection, but without having to get any invasive wiring done. The wireless alarm system can be installed in homes through a number of methods and none of them involve hiring a professional installer for undertaking this task. It is quite easy for people to find these alarm systems from some hardware stores and a number of garden and home supply stores. The price of a wireless security system may vary from store to store and manufacturer to manufacturer, but all of them simply eliminate the need to have wires running in the house.

Sensor Installation:

A warning is provided by the sensor of a wireless alarm system in the case where a window or door is opened when the alarm is on. The first step of installing this system in the house is to open the doors and windows that have to be protected against intrusion. Passive sensor plates should be placed against the edge of the door frames and the window sills. The battery compartments of the sensor transmitters should be inserted with batteries as they have to be screwed onto the side of the door or window with wood screws and with the help of a screwdriver. The connecting cable should be plugged into the port on the sensor receiver plates and the transistor. The wireless alarm receiver should be placed next to the bed. The receiver’s power cord should be plugged into a power outlet. The ‘sync’ button on the receiver and transmitter should be pressed to sync them together. Now, if the door or window is opened, the wireless security system will sound the alarm.

Video Camera:

A view of the area from where an intruder might get into the house will be provided by a wireless video camera such as the garage. This camera should be placed on the bookcase or the table so that the lens is facing the direction of the entranceway from where the intruder might get into the house such as the door connecting the garage and the house or the garage door itself. The camera will have a power cord that should be plugged into a wall outlet for power. The video receiver should be kept next to the TV where the video will be seen. A video cable will connect the TV and the receiver. The receiver’s cord should also be plugged into a power outlet or watching the video being transmitted through the wireless security system.

Motion Detector:

An area of the home that needs protection will be wirelessly monitored by a stand-alone motion detector. The motion detector should be placed on the floor with the sensor on the front and aiming at the area that needs to be protected. The power cord of the detector needs to be plugged into a power outlet on the wall. The sensitivity of the detector can be adjusted in case you have pets around the house or someone tends to sleepwalk. In this way, the wireless security system will not be triggered because of a false alarm.
