Wired models are expected to weaken as wireless units rise.
- Wired vs wireless: The adoption of GSM and 3G models is pushing wired variants to the minority segment, especially in the home and DIY sector where ease of installation and maintenance is important. Wired units currently take up only 10 percent of China’s total shipments of intruder alarms.
- Networked systems strong: Wired setups with PSTN or TCP/IP bus remain robust, particularly in the large residential and commercial sectors.
- Systems integration key trend: More makers are merging intruder alarms with video doorphone, CCTV surveillance or smart home systems for enhanced security. CCTV setups, for example, will activate cameras automatically if intruder detectors are triggered. Such integrated systems are deemed suitable for modern homes and businesses.
- Ease of use: Current models have the control panel in the indoor phone for simple operation and centralized control. Advanced units can operate appliances and smart devices in the home.
