Benefits of a hybrid alarm system -
Hybrid alarm systems incorporate both hardwired and wireless devices. These types of alarms work well if you live in a home with two or more floors. This means you can use hardwired devices for the first floor and wireless for the second floor and up. Another benefit is using hardwired devices inside, but having the capability to use outside motion detectors to help protect your outside shed, garden, or gate.
