Choose Wireless Miami Alarm Systems

Posted by Omega Security on March 7, 2013

Switching from a home security system that requires a telephone line to a wireless security system means your home and family are protected when the power goes out. Power outages caused by weather are a common occurrence in Miami. Alarm companies all over the country are moving customers toward wireless systems because they are the innovative choice. Miami alarm systems that use wireless technology ensure your home security in Miami works regardless of the weather.

Wired vs. Wireless

Wireless technology means Omega Security can monitor your home without a landline. Old-fashioned wired security systems often required drilling holes in walls, floors and ceilings to accommodate the wiring. Wired security systems are time-consuming to install and, once in place, a wired system is difficult to reposition. In the event a homeowner changes homes, a wired system can be expensive to move.

At one time, wired systems, like landlines, were the only option. However, technology has changed, and wireless systems are a good economic choice. Today, many people use a cell phone as their primary phone. It does not make financial sense to pay for a landline for Miami alarm systems.

A wireless security system is easy to install, simple to move and can save your money on your phone bill since it does not require a telephone line.

Wireless cameras, temperature and flood sensors

If you are at work or on vacation when bad weather hits, you do not need to worry about your home. Many security cameras can be remotely accessed via the Internet. This allows you to check in on your home and property when you are away.

Florida’s weather challenges often include the risk of extreme temperatures and flooding in addition to power outages. Flooding can cause extensive damage and property loss in a short amount of time. A flood sensor in areas such as a basement, laundry room or kitchen means your alarm company can quickly notify you when water or unexpected temperatures are detected. Home security in Miami that relies on a wired system is useless when the power goes out. However, using a wireless security system ensures you are alerted immediately if water or unexpected temperatures are detected in your home.

Fire and Carbon Monoxide Alerts

Power outages often mean homeowners resort to flashlights and candles to light their home until the power returns. Open fire in the home is always a hazard, but even more so when it is the only source of light. Homes with small children need to exercise caution to prevent burns and accidental fires.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a risk during power outages since homeowners may be tempted to use camp stoves, generators or grills for heat or light inside the home. Since carbon monoxide is both odorless and colorless, a family can be quickly sickened. Carbon monoxide is especially dangerous since it acts quickly, and even a small amount of exposure can cause disorientation and loss of consciousness. A monitored wireless carbon monoxide detector can alert both the family and the security company if unsafe levels of carbon monoxide are present.
