That’s what comes to mind for many when the topic turns to wireless alarm systems. No cables to deal with, no drilling, no multi-day installations. But even these systems come with some caveats for installers. So consider these tips when embarking on a wireless system. Tip 1: Select the Proper Mounting Location The location for mounting a device is one of the most important aspects of installing a wireless alarm system. There is nothing worse than climbing a ladder, mounting a device and finding out later it doesn’t adequately communicate with the control panel. So, what’s an installer to do? Perform a placement test to ensure the panel can communicate with a particular wireless device, such as a keypad or motion detector. These tests are as simple as pushing a button to test the device while it is held up near a specific location. Today, some devices come with an LED light designed to glow green to affirm mounting location or red if it is not optimal. Tip 2: Take Interfering Sources into Consideration If a device will be in a smaller home or in an area with an abundance of radio frequency signals, it is important to understand that additional RF noise can impact the overall range. Even smartphones and tablets can interfere with a wireless security device’s ability to communicate to the control panel. Also, stay clear of mounting a wireless device on or too close to an electrical box. The alternating current can interfere with the device, while the metal box can alter the characteristics of the antenna on each device, thereby reducing range. If there is interference, a wireless repeater can be used to increase the range and transmission capabilities of the wireless system. Tip 3: Know the Environment Today, home and small business owners like to think outside the box when installing a security system, expanding the boundaries to include pool houses, sheds and garages. And this is doable, as long as you take into account the environmental characteristics of a device and if it is rated for outdoor use. Devices that aren’t rated to operate in extremely cold weather environments won’t function properly. The same holds true for exposure to rain and moisture. Tip 4: Understand the Range & Battery Life While the overall range of wireless systems has increased significantly in recent years, it is still important to know the range limitations of the system you plan to install. A wireless intrusion system rated for an area of less than 3,000 square feet will not be adequate for a 5,000 square-foot home. Range can also have an impact on the mounting location selected. Consider the headache for the homeowner if a mislocated PIR sensor near a large picture window sounds every time someone walks by the window. By keeping these few points in mind, you can ensure an easy installation process!
