It depends on what you need from a security system. We believe a hardwired alarm systems has an edge on reliability, while wireless systems provide a more streamlined installation and can be used in places where wired systems can't. "Wireless vs. wired security" refers to two distinctly different parts of the security system. The network of sensors, plus the control panel, make up a self-contained system that may be wired or wireless. A fully wireless system uses individual sensors throughout the home which communicate wirelessly to the central control panel, typically using radio frequency technology. The control panel will then communicate wirelessly to the outside world using a cellular network via GSM/GPRS. A fully hardwired alarm system connects the sensors to the control panel with a network of wires, concealed within the walls and floors of your home. If your home does not have security system wiring pre-installed, wireless systems can solve several problems. You won't have to worry about drilling holes or other modifications, making wireless an extremely attractive option for renters, historic homes, or buildings with significant interior brick, stone or marble construction.

The average cost for installing and setting up a new in-home security system ranges from €650 to €1450, with monthly monitoring plans averaging around €22. Monthly monitoring plans can range from €8.00 to €40.00 per month depending on the features you require.

You should not only invest in a security system itself, but alarm monitoring services are also crucial. Instead of just protecting your home, these types of systems can alert a company monitoring your home for you, send you messages regarding the status of your home or alert the Gardai in the case of a break-in or other emergency. Another important reason to invest in alarm monitoring is for smoke and fire detection, which can come as part of the security package. 24 Hour Monitoring can offer your home an even more complete security package, as someone will be safeguarding your home just as intently as you are.

On average, installing a monitored security system which conforms to IS En50131-1 in your home can reduce your homeowner's insurance by up to 20 percent. Homes without security systems are three times more likely to be broken into than homes that have security systems. Insurance companies understand that a professionally monitored security system adds an extra layer of protection to your home, creating a safer environment for your family. They also know monitored security systems reduce the likelihood of a burglary or fire damage. As a result, your insurance company saves money and they pass that savings on to you.
