Technology has come a long way in the last few years and every year it seems to evolve at a quicker pace. Security systems are part of this rapid evolution and having experienced this change first hand, I can say this will continue into the future.
Alarm systems used to be a simple device that would make a heck of a noise in the hope that it would deter any would be intruders; today alarm systems have become fully integrated home safety systems. Emergency service response via panic buttons on the alarm systems code pad and speaking to an actual person to make sure everything is ok, is just scratching the surface of what’s currently available.
Having grown up with security conscious parents we always had an active routine of if we should leave the home, remember to arm the alarm. My parents currently have a 15 year old Hills alarm system which still works brilliantly, however it has had one small addition in recent months and that is the addition of a wireless monitoring module.
Who would have thought such a small and low cost upgrade would have had such an amazing impact on the security, ongoing cost and useability of the system. It has basically brought the alarm into line with current systems sold today.
And if that’s not enough to convince you to go wireless, it’s extremely easy to operate and they say proof is in the pudding. My parents are part of the baby boomer era, technology is sometimes a hard concept to grasp. It literally took me less than a minute to show them how to use the app.
They say don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater and by adding the wireless monitoring module you can bring your old alarm system a new lease of life.
