Why should you look at a Wireless Home Security System? Well the answers are similar to why you would have a cell phone? You don't want to be dependent on a land line when you are on the go. If a land line is cut and your home security depends on it, your security system is now useless. A wireless system resolves that issue. The second reason is convenience. Just like you have a cell phone to maintain communication on the go, with a wireless home security system, you can access and communicate with your system while on the go.
What Exactly is a Wireless Security System? What is CellGuard?
There are actually two meanings when someone says Wireless Home Security. On one hand, it refers to all the sensors and devices using a wireless signal to communicate with the control panel or keypad. Historically, a home security system will have a wire that is run to each individual device in your system. These "hardwired systems" are not easy to add more devices to and installation into a home that was not wired at the time of construction is labor intensive. Most consumers today opt for a wireless system if their home is not pre-wired for an alarm. Homes that are pre-wired should look for a hybrid panel that accepts both wireless and hardwired devices.
Secondly, "wireless" also refers to the way in which a panel communicates with the monitoring station. As mentioned above, with a system that is relying on a land line to communicate that a break-in is happening, a sly thief needs only to cut the phone line to stop the alarm signal form being sent. Get protection from your phone line being cut with ADT CellGuard monitoring service. Even a panel that is hardwired or hybrid, can still be wireless in its communication with the monitoring station. When looking for a new wireless system, you will want an ADT cellular alarm that accesses a cellular connection to the monitoring station and a wireless or hybrid panel inside your home.
Wireless Home Security Systems are Convenient
Who doesn't love convenient? Whether you're re-activating an existing system or starting from scratch, installation is a snap! No matter the size of the job, it's a matter of hanging the equipment and programming it in. And if you decide to expand your system in the future, it's still a simple and quick process.
Advancements in different types of wireless technologies have expanded the basic home security system into a powerful home automation platform. You get the convenience of controlling multiple systems in your home from one device. You can set up smart home automations right within your ADT system.
Wireless Home Security Meets Home Automation
Not too long ago, a home automation system would cost you thousands. To be able to have lights that turn on as you unlock the door or your stereo greets you with soothing jazz after a long day at the office would cost a pretty penny. Not any more, ADT Pulse even comes with free, cool phone apps that activate your security system remotely. These features add convenience and can save you money. The future is available today and integrated into your wireless security system. Check out some of the features of an ADT Pulse system:
- Arm and disarm your security system by logging in on-line or with a mobile app.
- View live video from your web enabled device.
- Take snapshots or video clips as you view.
- Control your door locks remotely.
- Replace light switches with programmable light switches for energy management.
Integrated thermostat; control it remotely.
- Create "modes" to trigger all your systems to do multiple things with one command.
- Create schedules for devices to automatically perform functions at specific times on specific days.
- Create automation where one device triggers another, like lights coming on when you unlock your front door.
- Create alerts to tell you if your alarm sounds or sends you a picture of who is knocking on your door.
- All this and more, with the ability to control it from anywhere and at any time from your web-enable device.
Interaction with Your Wireless Home Security System
Wireless Home Security protects your home, the ones you love and your hard earned possessions. An ADT Pulse Wireless Home Security System comes with an on-line Web Portal where you can log in at any time and view the status of the entire system. You will also set up any functions that you want performed automatically and make real time changes to your system. Access your Web Portal from home, work or any computer with on-line access. You can even access a mobile web portal on a traditional cell phone.
For remote interactive security while you are on the go, download the ADT Pulse App and the ADT Pulse Voice App. Both give you access to check the status of your home, arm or disarm your system remotely, adjust thermostats and lighting, and lock or unlock your doors all from your mobile device. You can also access video feed and take snapshots or clips of what you are viewing; a great way to check in on that new babysitter or kids doing homework. The ADT Pulse Voice App lets you use voice commands for these features and gives you a verbal confirmation of your commands. It just doesn't get easier or more convenient than that.
