home wireless security system

Some brands sell proprietary home automation/security equipment and others are designed to work with a variety of third party brands. If you buy a wireless home security system that’s not compatible with your existing home automation equipment, you will be required to use two different control systems, one for your home automation equipment and another for your wireless home security system. So if simplicity is important to you, look for a brand the is compatible with your existing equipment. Another thing you will have to think about is whether you want to self monitor or pay for professional monitoring. Self monitoring is fairly easy because many wireless home security systems come with a mobile app that enables you to access, monitor, and control your system using that app. However, the monitoring burden is entirely up to you.
