Wireless, Remote, Mobile Security Systems in Richmond, Virginia

Yes! We install wireless security systems in the greater Richmond, VA area, and most, if not all, of existing security systems can be converted to wireless.

But the real question is, “What does having a wireless security system really mean?” There are two explanations:.

1. Wireless Security System Devices

Security systems installed in homes and businesses consist of an alarm control panel (the brain) with a back-up battery and a keypad (for arming/disarming). There are then a variety of different sensors used to “sense” a possible break-in or fire, including (but not limited to):

  • Door & window sensors
  • Glassbreak sensors
  • Smoke detectors
  • Carbon monoxide detectors
  • Motion sensors
  • Panic buttons
  • Heat detectors

These sensors can be hardwired back to the alarm control panel giving that sensor a direct connection to the “brain” or, these sensors can have a miniature radio transmitter built into them so they can transmit a radio signal back to the brain in the event of an attempted break-in.

There are advantages and disadvantages of both types (hardwire and wireless devices) but they both work well – one simply communicates to the brain in the house/business by means of a wire. The other communicates to the brain in the house/business by means of a radio signal – hence wireless. Here at Dynamark Security, we install both types of systems. The type (hardwired, wireless or a combination of the two) depends on each particular application and installation.

2. “Wireless” Communication to the Central Station

A hardwired or wireless security system (referring to the types of sensors used) can send an alarm signal to the Central Station (the 24 hour monitoring center) through a phone line, the internet or the “wireless” cellular network.

So a “wireless” system can also refer to a security system that communicates the alarm signals by the wireless cell network instead of over the phone land line network. There are advantages and disadvantages to both paths of communication.

Which path may be best for each home/business depends on several factors which we can determine by means of a FREE site survey. Contact us now to get your FREE survey.
