Wireless Home Security Systems

When people refer to wireless home security systems, that can have two possible meanings.

It can refer to a system that uses wireless sensors on doors and windows that communicate with the control panel in the home when a break-in occurs.  These types of systems are easier to install because they don’t require putting wires in the walls of your home.

More often, the term wireless home security system refers to a system that is monitored by a central station using the cellular network instead of a traditional telephone line.  More and more homeowners are electing to install these types of systems as they get rid of their landline telephones.

Wireless security systems also allow you to arm or disarm your system remotely using your cell phone or tablet, and also allow you to add other home automation features like keyless door locks and temperature and lighting controls.

Frequently Asked Questions about Home Security Systems

Many customers and prospective customers have the same questions about home alarm systems and security systems.

How does a burglar alarm work, and what all does it incorporate?

The alarm is connected to contacts on windows and doors that tie into a main master control panel keypad. It can be armed and disarmed as needed, and can include motion detectors, glassbreak detectors, carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, and more.  If a zone is violated, the alarm sounds and our central station monitoring center calls you within seconds to determine if there is a problem.  Every alarm owner has a password that they use to verify their identity with the monitoring center over the phone.  If the alarm owner doesn’t answer the phone when the monitoring center calls, the local police will be notified.

What’s the difference between a monitored and unmonitored alarm?

An unmonitored alarm is not connected to anything outside the home.  When it goes off, it simply makes noise, but does not summon any assistance.  Also, unmonitored alarms may not qualify you for a discount on your homeowner’s insurance.  Dynamark Security offers alarm monitoring services from a 5 Diamond Certified central monitoring station.

I don’t plan to have or am disconnecting the landline telephone at my home / business – Can my Security Alarm System still be monitored?

Certainly! For our clients without a landline telephone connection, we offer a Wireless Communicator device that can communicate to the Central Monitoring Center utilizing a connection with cell phone data towers in your area.

How much does an alarm system from Dynamark Security of Richmond cost?

When you sign a 36-month monitoring agreement at the time of system installation, the basic alarm system is actually free.  Without the monitoring agreement, the cost of the system depends on the level of security that you’re looking for.

Who manufactures the alarm systems installed by Dynamark Security of Richmond?

We use Honeywell and GE/Interlogix products in all our alarm installations.

I have a security system installed by another company.  Can I switch my alarm monitoring to Dynamark Security?
