The traditional alarm system is for it to be wired into the mains power of the house and for every sensor and the control panel to be connected by wires.
This gives you the reassurance of the system never failing as even if the mains powere were to be disrupted then the battery backup would kick in and the system would still operate for a number of hours.
With the current technology a wireless alarm will only ever get to grade 2 for insurance purposes and for that purpose you might be forced to use a wired system as some policies will require you to have a grade 3 alarm system installed.
Wired systems can be more expensive to install as the wires need to be hidden unless your property is new and the wiring was preinstalled - this is very common with new build houses. However the extra costs of the installation are generally offset by the lower cost of the sensors and contro panels themselves compared with wireless systems.
ACE Security can install either a wired or a wireless system and we do not have a preference. This means that you can be assured that when we give you a site survey and our security recommendation we will be suggesting the system that will work best given your property.
