Wired - Initial costs can be less costly than a wireless alarm system, but installation can be complicated and cost more, due to the extra time required for laying the cables. A wired burglar alarm is low maintenance and inexpensive to run, needing only mains electricity for the alarm system to function (and no expensive batteries). Servicing is reduced to cleaning sensors and checking any battery back-up in the control unit and external bell box on a routine schedule as set by the manufacturer. Some people in Prescot find the sight of the alarm system wiring to be an eyesore around the home.

They're also far easier to fit, and even folks with quite basic do-it-yourself skills should be able to get a wireless alarm installed and operating without much difficulty. A wireless security alarm needs the siren box, sensors and other detectors to have fully charged batteries regularly, to keep the device working correctly.
