A WiFi alarm system is a system that connects via the existing WiFi network. WiFi systems can then be operated via a smartphone app and you will also receive the alarm notifications in this app. There are many different WiFi systems for sale, both online and in stores, but which one suits your needs? On this product page we try to help you select the best WiFi alarm based on a few tips.
When to choose a WiFi alarm system?
A WiFi alarm system is a good choice if the WiFi network at the location where you want to place the alarm is stable. This can therefore apply to both the office and the home. Despite the fact that there is a strong and stable WiFi signal, we advise you to choose a system that also has a backup connection option such as a SIM card. If the WiFi network fails or is disturbed, an alarm message can still be sent via this back-up connection method.
How can you install the Wi-Fi alarm system?
A WiFi alarm system consists of a base station that has a WiFi antenna. You first connect your smartphone with the app that is used directly to the WiFi alarm. You then connect the system to the existing WiFi network so that you can access the system from any location with internet. The alarm can often be operated entirely via the app. For example, zones can be created for the detectors, extra sensors can be connected and users can be added. You will receive alarm notifications as a push notification in the App. You can set per user which notifications the WiFi alarm system should send and it is also possible to (temporarily) block notifications in your smartphone.
What are the pros and cons?
A WiFi alarm system has the great advantage that it is easy to install. Because the detectors and other accessories of the WiFi alarm system connect wirelessly to the base station of the WiFi alarm, you only have to hang the detectors. It is not necessary to pull cables. Another advantage of a WiFi alarm is the ease of use that the operation via the smartphone App offers. Everything can be arranged from the app and alarms come through almost in real time. The possibility to sabotage a WiFi alarm system and the dependence on the stability of the WiFi network are the biggest disadvantages of a WiFi alarm system. There is of course nothing anywhere that during a burglary the system just stops working due to a WiFi malfunction.
Do wifi alarm systems have a Borg certificate?
We advise customers who want to buy a WiFi alarm system to carefully check how high the reliability of the security must be. Depending on this, you can opt for a cheap WiFi alarm without a backup connection or it might be wiser to go for a professional WiFi alarm system that does have this backup connection.
