Wireless alarm system instructions

  1. When you want to install any type of home alarm system not just a wireless one you have to determine where you are going to install the control panel. Aside from the main control you will also have to decide where to put all the door and window sensors as well as those for fire and gas. It is best that you choose a place where you have easy access like the front door but make sure that it is not too visible.
  2. The control panel should have access to a nearby electric outlet and a telephone line. Aside from this the sensors will have to be placed with care on the windows and doors, you have to think like a burglar.
  3. Install the control panel on the wall like it says in the manual. You usually have to screw it on the wall. After this you have to connect it to a power source and do not forget to add the batteries for backup. These batteries are very important because in case you run out of power the alarm will not disarm itself.
  4. Next it is time to adjust the sirens and the light in order to fit your needs. Make sure that you can access them easily but not too easy.
  5. Once you have finished with the control panel it is time to fix the sensors around the house. Be careful where you put them because they can lose signal. Keep them away from electric devices or nearby metals because these can affect the signal transmitted to the control panel.
  6. If you are already installing one of the many models of house alarm systems why not include fire detectors, glass break sensors and motion sensors as well.
  7. Program the sensors to the control panel so that you can establish a connection between them. If you do not know what to do follow the instructions that come with the device. You must have one because all house alarm systems come with it.
  8. Once you have finished installing the wireless alarm system it is time to test it and make changes it you need to.


Installing wireless alarm systems is easier than installing normal alarm systems because you do not have to connect every sensor with the control panel through cable. You will also save a lot of money because you will not need to hire a security company.
