Benefits of a Monitored System
A system monitored by a 24-hour monitoring station has several benefits. First, most insurance carriers offer discounts for security/fire alarm systems that are monitored. These discounts can be as high as 20% off your homeowner premium. Secondly, if you have fire protection that has been installed by your security company having the system monitored means that the local fire department could be notified sooner. The quicker the fire department is notified the less chance there is of sustaining loss of life or property damage. Another reason for having a system monitored is that many townships do not allow exterior sirens due to noise ordinances so the chances that a neighbor hearing it and calling in the alarm is unlikely.
 

Wireless vs. Hardwired Security Systems
There are two basic types of security systems, wireless and hardwired. To figure out which is best for you, it is important to understand the pros and cons of both.

Hardwired System
Pros
• In new home construction when the walls are open, this type of system is less expensive
• The actual devices are less expensive
• Components are less expensive
• Easier to trouble shoot
• They involve less maintenance
• Stores more user features- history/events
• Has been around longer and has a proven track record
Cons
• They are more susceptible to lightning strikes
• More labor intensive in existing homes, thus more expensive
• More mess when installing in existing homes, having to drill holes in walls, ceilings, and floors
• Not as flexible, a wire needs to get to the location of the device

Wireless Systems
Pros
• Less intrusive as there are no holes drilled in walls, ceilings and floors
• Less expensive in existing homes
• Less labor intensive installation
• Less susceptible to lightning strikes
• More flexibility with locations
• Less able to be defeated
• More features built into unit- voice command/remote arm and disarm
Cons
• More maintenance (changing the battery)
• Interference issues due to environmental changes
• Harder to trouble shoot
• Not as many choices in devices
