Are wired security systems a thing anymore?

In a new build, are wired door and window sensors outdated, or is it still a good option? I am trying to decide whether to go with wired sensors.

Or, are most sensors in use today in this community wireless and battery-operated?

I would recommend in a new construction wired over wireless any day anytime because it gives you much more flexibility to switch between security companies.

This is because every manufacturer supports wired contacts although most of them have their flavor of a wireless system that they only use so most wireless contacts from systems are not compatible with one another and would have to be ripped out if you decide to change.

Remember to apply one or two drops to the locations where you want to install wireless access points, such as the ceilings on the opposing sides of the house’s floors.
