This is typically the most difficult step in setting up a security system. By being able skip the tedious and difficult task of running wires, you can make it super easy to complete a full system installation. You might also be surprised just how far wireless sensors can work from an alarm system. Obviously it depends on the type of system you are using and the wireless sensors themselves. But we have seen some sensors that can work from up to 2 km away in an open air environment.
Wireless touchscreen alarm panels also offer other advantages in making your life easier. For instance, you do not even need to mount your touchscreen panel to the wall. These systems typically have desk mounts available that you can use to rest your system on a table or desk. All you have to do is slide to attach. You can then use your system without drilling holes in the walls. This is perfect for users who may not be great with tools, as well as those living in rental properties who may not have permission to drill holes.
Wireless sensors also offer surprisingly easy mounting options. You don't need to use screws to mount your sensors to the walls. Most wireless sensors can be mounted using double-sided foam tape. This is very convenient, and it makes it possible for nearly anyone to complete their own alarm system installation. By using double-sided foam tape and a desk mount, it's truly possible for you to complete a full installation without any major tools. You will just need a screwdriver to apply batteries and attach the power cable.
Users also really like alarm panels that use a colored touchscreen. Push-button keypads are dull, and they are also uninviting. Many new users feel intimidated by push-button keypads because they are afraid of entering an invalid code and messing up their systems. Touchscreen keypads are much easier to control and operate. The colored menus are inviting, and it is easy to know exactly what you are doing. You will be less likely to make a mistake as a result, and you will feel more confident when using your system.
