While the Nightlock home security system has always been wireless (which means it always works, doesn’t require a signal and is simple to use) it seems other, electronic, home security systems are going wireless as well, and for good reason.
While many systems are still finding their way and there are always bugs to work out, there are many benefits to adopting a wireless home security system.
Systems of days past were connected to the wiring already in place in your home. This often required cutting a hole in the wall, pulling out wires, disconnecting your power and then closing up the wall again. It was a messy, complicated process. But, with wireless systems, there are no wires. You simply place them where you want them, maybe mount them to the wall, and connect them to your wireless network. No tearing your wall apart.
The same goes for when the device needs to be repaired. Since it’s not attached to the wires in your home, it’s up to you whether you want to have someone come to your home to repair it or take it in somewhere. It’s also easier to replace when the time comes and will actually last longer since it’s often possible to replace particular parts at one time rather than the whole unit.
No Power, No Problem
Since most units can run on a cellular network, you won’t lose your security system if you have power. In order to take out the security system, the entire cell network would need to be taken out, which happens, but rarely.

Though, if you are looking for a new take on an old idea, systems like Canary are taking home security to the next level. The Canary is a unit you can place on any surface in your home and it monitors and detects any activity in your home. With a built-in camera in can capture the identity of an intruder and alert you to unusual activity. It’s also a great way to keep an eye on your furry friends when you aren’t at home.
Keeping up with the latest in technology when it comes to home security can be the difference between a break-in and an almost break in. Combining a wireless system with a cut and dry, yet effective product, like Nightlock, can keep your home safe and you alert.
