If you have a wireless panel or keypad, then you know that the controller for the system is usually mounted on a wall. However, many users do not realize that they can actually use desk mounts for their panels and keypads. This will position your panel or keypad upright so that you can operate it more easily than if it were laying flat. It will also prevent any cables or wires from being bent awkwardly if you just put the panel flat. This makes a desk mount a must for anyone who intends on using their wireless system without mounting it to a wall.
Mounting a security system to a wall is usually an easier process than most people think.But there are some users who may not have the proper tools to mount a panel, or they may simply not want to drill any holes in the wall. This is often the case for renters and people living in apartments. Providing security and protection for apartments and rental homes is very important, but you don't need to drill holes into the wall to install a security system and protect your home. You can just use a desk mount and achieve a super easy installation.
By using a desk mount, it is possible to install a security system using nothing more than a screwdriver. Nearly every sensor used with a wireless system can be mounted using double-sided foam tape, which will eliminate the need for drilling holes into the wall to mount your sensors. And since you can use a desk mount to stand up your system on a sturdy desk or table, no wall mounting is ever necessary for a security system.
When choosing a desk mount, make sure to select one that will fit your alarm control panel. There is usually a specific desk mount to get for each panel and keypad. If you get the wrong one then it will not work, so make sure to check compatibility. You may want to remove the power wire for your panel and run it through the back of the desk mount so that it does not become caught on anything.
