Window sensors. Hard wired or wireless in a new build?
We’re building a new house. I’m looking at security systems and lighting control but relative to windows,,have wireless window sensors improved so they’re as reliable as hard wired? I haven’t decided on which panel - likely Elk or Vista. But ideally, if I don’t have to run wires to windows and drill into windows, that’s be great. But I want reliability.
I have wireless window sensors on windows in my current rental place and they’re somewhat reliable. I have an Xfinity security set up. I realize Xfinity security is low brow, but we wanted something cheap while in our rental home. I am wondering i can purchase reliable window sensors that are wireless or if wired is still the way to go for our new home?
What is the thinking here?
