News: Wireless vs Wired Security Systems
The number of households in the U.S. with a home security system hasn’t changed much in the past 10 years. In 2008, 33.47 million people said they own a home with a home security system. In 2017, that number was 35.44—which might seem like a significant increase except has peaked at much higher and gone down, although it looks like it might be trending up again.
What has changed is the type of home security people have. Older systems were hardwired and today’s home security and automation systems tend to be wireless—although they have the same basic features and components.
Our world is wireless
In today’s wireless world, we kind of expect everything to be wireless. We want WiFi everywhere and always-on access to the Internet-enabled apps on our smart phones. It’s only natural that we’re going to want wireless home security too.
A wireless home security solution is not the obvious first choice, however, if you’re shopping around and debating between wireless and hardwired. There are times when a hardwired solution is the way to go. For most of us, that’s not the case and a wireless home security system makes the most sense.
Ways it’s wireless
When talking about home security systems, wireless has two meanings. The system itself is wireless within your home, relying on WiFi to work. And the system is remotely accessible to you, again via WiFi.
A wireless home security system is much easier to install because it has—you guessed it—no wires. No drilling is required, no wires must be worked into and snaked through walls to come out a different hole elsewhere in the house. A wireless home security system requires the same number of wires as your wireless phone: zero.
That means you can easily expand your home security system later, if you want to. You can add features, and you can add more coverage, say to your garage or another outbuilding, or with more video cameras outside.
Where to find wireless
If you’re either upgrading your current home security system or you’re moving into a new home and buying one for the first time, you might wonder whom to trust. After all, every home security vendor out there seems like a reputable one, right? You can check consumer reviews to see if they are as good as they claim to be. For example, SafeStreets USA scores 7.6 out of 10 according to reviews at Best Company. Since that’s based on almost 150 consumer reviews, that’s a trustworthy score.
Whether you decide hardwired or wireless home security works best for your home, you’re taking steps to protect it, and you can do so with peace of mind when you choose a well-rated vendor with a strong reputation.
Some helpful safety tips
While you’re on the road
Once you’ve left the house or work, follow this advice to be a safer winter driver:
- Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface, whether it’s snow, ice, excess water or sand that’s making it slippery.
- Accelerate slowly so your tires get a chance to grip the road when the surface is slick.
- Decelerate slowly because it will take you longer to slow down, and hitting the brakes is a good way to go into a skid on winter roads. You know the stoplight is ahead of you. Anticipate it.
- That said, be extra careful of other drivers who might hit their brakes hard. Keep your distance just in case.
- Drive slowly. (Are you picking up on the “slowly” theme here?) Yes, accelerate and decelerate slowly, but also take your turns with care, and be more deliberate and cautious.
- Take it slow and steady when going uphill, rather than trying to power up the hill. Otherwise, you might set your wheels spinning. Build some inertia on the flat before you get to the hill instead. You want to start your descent slowly too. This will help.
- AAA says to brake by keeping the heel of your foot on the floor and using the ball of your foot to apply firm, steady pressure on the brake pedal.
- Try not to come to a complete stop. It’s harder to get going again when roads are slick. This is particularly true on hills, so if you’re going uphill, keep on going even if you have to crawl along to avoid stopping.
If you get stuck
If you get stuck, you’ll be glad you packed emergency supplies in your car! But also follow this advice:
- Stay with your car. It’s your shelter from the storm, and it’s easier for rescuers to spot because it’s bigger.
- Walking away from your car in a storm can mean losing sight of it. Don’t do it.
- Don’t over exert yourself trying to push or dig your car out of the snow. A little effort is okay, but save your strength.
- If you need rescuing, tie a brightly colored cloth to your antenna during the day. At night, keep your dome light on if possible.
- If you have to, run the engine and heater just long enough to remove the chill but try to conserve gasoline. Also make sure the exhaust pipe isn’t clogged with snow or ice because that could cause carbon monoxide to get into the car when the engine is running.
However, the absolute best advice for driving in winter weather is to stay home. Despite all of your precautions, you’re at the mercy of the weather and the other drivers, who might not be as cautious or prepared as you are. Wouldn’t you rather stay in, wait out the storm, and avoid the worry altogether?
