Should I Get a Wireless Video Security System?

According to crime statistics for 2015, property crime resulted in losses of $14.3 billion across the United States. The reported stolen property value was estimated to be around $12 billion, regardless of the fact that property crime actually decreased. For many individuals, these kinds of losses are a result of property and possessions that are not appropriately protected or whose systems are not up to par.

A wireless video security system is one of the solutions to obtaining greater security. These systems make monitoring much easier and have the ability to prevent damage or theft before they even occur.

This kind of security is often a consideration for many people, especially those who are in high-theft areas or who have a lot of assets that they would like to protect. Because of their popularity, security systems have seen a lot of great upgrades and package options; this ensures that every property owner has the ability to choose options that are attainable and affordable for their needs.

If youÕre thinking about investing in a wireless video security system, there are a few things you might consider to help you make an educated decision.

Location

Location has a lot to do with the level of security a property has. If you know that your property is in a high-theft area, chances are you'll want to get some form of security to ward off theft before it even occurs.

Properties that are in low-traffic areas may also need added protection. Not only do low-traffic areas have less prying eyes to spot burglars, but homes that are further from downtown cores will likely take longer to reach for police or firefighters.

Constant Moving

If you are constantly changing locations for work or other reasons, then a wireless security system is definitely a good investment. These systems are much easier to install, and you won't have to worry about putting holes in walls or covering up cords in a home you're not staying in.

This kind of security system is also handy because the un-installation is just as easy. That means you don't have to have all of your security re-bolted to walls when you re-locate. It's a matter of hooking up the system again, and you're ready to go.


Dˇcor

In well-decorated buildings and homes, wires and cords are often a sore spot on walls. One of the best things about wireless security systems is that they offer a clean, simple look that blends into any existing dˇcor in a room. The keypads fit well into any setting and color scheme and, if the system communicates via the internet or cellular phones, that also eliminates the wires that run from the telephone line to the panel.


Enhanced Coverage

A lot of people don't know this, but cords and wires have a lot to do with where your security systems can be placed on a property; this can often lead to systems that are not placed in the best location possible for full coverage.

With a wireless system, the problem of working around wires is completely removed. This gives installers the opportunity to place the system in the most effective location without worrying about blinds spots or wire length.


Adaptable

Once your security systems are in place, you might notice that things change over time, and you want to move things around. With a wireless system, this is no problem at all. Whether you want to redecorate, add extra coverage to certain rooms, or adjust the system to better protect growing children, all of this is possible. A regular system would need to be re-configured with each change, but a wireless system's adaptability is much more convenient.


Less Tampering

Wire Cutters

A security system without wires simply removes the dangers that they often create: tripping, tampering, child safety, etc. With wireless, you donÕt have to worry about burglars interfering with and cutting wires, and children wonÕt be exposed to choking hazards. The simplicity of these systems increases the safety both of your home and of the people within it.


Conclusion

If you're thinking about investing in a wireless security system, there are lots of benefits to their design. While they offer the same level of protection as regular security systems, wireless options also offer a much cleaner, more simplistic system that removes the painful process of installation and re-location.

Not only that, but the ability to expand the system to outdoor locations and other areas of interest is very convenient for property owners who plan to expand. If you know you'll be making changes to a property you own in the future, consider a wireless video security system to keep the property safe, no matter what updates and upgrades you make.
