In a wireless system, information is sent out through radio frequencies. It is similar to the technology used in cordless phones. Previous versions of wireless home alarm systems operated on the same frequency of that of a cordless phone which could interfere with the proper operation of the alarm system. But due to the rapid advancement of technology, they have developed a better wireless system that uses different frequencies that is not the same being used by cordless phones or other wireless devices.

Some wireless has motion detectors. This feature triggers the alarm when movements occur in the area that is monitored by the detector. It is another method of detecting a burglar when he/she successfully entered a home through the door or a window without setting the alarm system. Moreover, the wireless system can be set in two different modes: monitored and unmonitored. If you set it on monitored mode, when your system is disturbed, no annoying sound can be heard from inside your home but people outside your house will notice the incident. The unmonitored mode on the other hand, a loud noise is created making the burglar alarmed to make a quick escape.
