Wireless home security systems designed by WisDom Wireless are an effective way for the do it yourselfer to protect family and property against unwanted intruders and save thousands of dollars over using a professional security service. Available as basic “starter” kits or individual components, WisDom Wireless systems appeal to homeowners who want to save big on the “upfront” costs associated with a professional installation and avoid the ongoing expense of monthly central monitoring station fees.
Do it yourselfers clearly favor wireless systems over hard-wired systems because of their ease-of-installation and expandability, and the WisDom Wireless is one of the simplest to install and program. WisDom’s advanced wireless technology and variety of sensor and detector options let homeowners design a fully-featured home security system that’s comparable to what the professionals offer.
If you are thinking of installing a wireless home security system, here’s a look at the major components that WisDom Wireless offers and a brief explanation of what they do.
Control Panel — The WisDom Wireless control panel serves as the heart and brains of the system and connects to the various sensors and the communications source (usually a landline phone). In the case of a break-in, fire or other threat, the control panel automatically dials the homeowner (up to four phone numbers) or a central monitoring station with an alert. The control panel of a WisDom Wireless system has a keypad to arm and disarm the system and can accept up to 32 wireless sensors, in addition to one wired zone. It allows three “partitions” so you can selectively arm/disarm up to three areas of your home, and it offers two-way voice communication so you can talk to the monitoring station if there is an emergency or false alarm.
Keypad – Wireless keypads located at your home’s entrances provide push-button activation of the security system based on a code you pick. The WisDom Wireless allows additional user codes so workers or friends can have access to your home without setting off the alarm.
Keyfob – A keyfob is a miniature transmitter that is used as a remote control with push-button functionality for arming, disarming, stay, panic and output operations. The WisDom Wireless system comes with one keyfob and can take up to eight.
Door and Window Contact Sensors – Wireless door and window sensors are two-piece magnetic switches that activate when they window or door is opened and the contact is broken. WisDom Wireless door and window sensors are powered by long-lasting lithium batteries that last 3-5 years.
PIR Motion Sensors – Wireless passive infrared (PIR) motion detectors detect intruders by sensing motion or body heat. WisDom Wireless motion sensors are powered by long-lasting lithium batteries that last 3-5 years.
Pet Immune Motion Sensors – This new pet-friendly technology allows dogs and cats of up to 80 pounds to roam about the house freely while still protecting the home against intruders.
Smoke Detector – Unlike a battery-powered standalone smoke detector, these units connect to the home security system’s control panel. If smoke is detected, an audible siren sounds and a phone alert is sent out to the homeowner and/or central monitoring station, so home is protected even when unoccupied.
Glassbreak Detectors – Two types are available. An acoustic glassbreak detector recognizes the sound of breaking of glass while ignoring non-framed glass breakage and other possible sources of false alarm. A shock glassbreak detector attaches to the window and senses the shock of shattering glass.
Sirens – Internal, external and dual-function siren alarms can be connected to your WisDom Wireless security system. The system comes with a built-in 100dB internal siren and has a 500mA external siren driver for optional additional siren. There are several sirens that are compatible with the WisDom Wireless system. Most emit a piercing siren sound that is coupled with a strobing light. External sirens usually have a pre-alarm feature that begins at entry delay countdown and sends out an alarm notification if the system is vandalized during entry delay.
There are many wireless home security systems on the market today, but the WisDom Wireless system is recognized as one of the most complete whole-home security systems available today for the do it yourselfer. It is easy to install and features an autodialer that will call up to four phone numbers in the event of an emergency, allowing you to forgo expensive monthly central monitoring station fees. For additional cost savings, purchase one of the WisDom Wireless “Bonus” kits that includes the main control panel, a wireless keypad or smoke detector, and a variety of sensors at a discounted price.
