home securty system

A word about wireless protocols: In a perfect world, all home security components would use the same wireless standard to communicate with the main hub, but factors such as power requirements, signal range, price, and size make it virtually impossible to settle on just one. For example, smaller components such as door/window sensors typically use Z Wave or Zigbee technology because they don't require a lot of power and can be powered by smaller batteries. They also operate in a mesh topology and can help extend the range of networked devices. However, neither protocol provides the bandwidth that you get with Wi Fi, which is why it is usually used in security cameras to provide smooth video streaming, and in other devices that require a fat pipe. Moreover, Z Wave and Zigbee devices are connected and controlled using a hub, while Wi Fi devices can be connected directly to your home network and controlled with an app. Finally, Z Wave and Zigbee devices use AES 128 encryption, and since they operate in a closed system with a dedicated hub, they offer more security than Wi Fi devices.

Wish I had called the sheriff when he did not leave my property. I also wish that some standards would be employed before the city hands out solicitation permits. It does not take long to find out that this company could seriously rip off our most vulnerable older neighbors. I had my alarm installed on the same day that I met the gentleman that came and knocked on my door. None of the “statements or facts” I have read in the article even ring a bell. The representative was extremely professional and the company had a third party survey verify everything over the phone.
