Wireless

Organizations in a myriad of industries are beginning to recognize the profound benefits of wireless networks. By providing scalability, immediate access to information and real-time data, we’re now seeing improvements in such areas as inventory management, military deployment, education, patient care, and public in organizations worldwide.

Benefits of wireless technology
There are many compelling reasons for exploring wireless technology. Traditional wired security systems can’t meet the demands and deliver the protection required for all applications. Obstacles such as large areas, as in mines or municipal video surveillance in high crime areas, public transit, or temporary projects (including during construction), may limit the ability to install cabling. Plus, any number of design or architectural features can result in a security system performing less than adequately, which leaves the system exposed for potential exploitation. Wireless can eliminate costs as well as deployment delays, it can be scalable and portable, can allow for high throughput which enables multiple applications, and there is no wire clutter.

Wireless security systems combined with traditional wired systems
Wireless security technology has become extremely accessible, and is being specified more often as a part of an integrated system approach. There are situations where wireless is the first and only choice based on time lines or geography. However, wireless systems are designed in many solutions to compliment wired systems, not replace them. A completely wired or wireless system is often unsuitable or unrealistic for every deployment, but a combination of the two can help satisfy a customers’ request for the most complex of security requirements.
