Well in this featured article I’ll be reviewing the Fortress Wireless Home Security Alarm System. Generally, we would expect to install an alarm system especially if it is wireless that you would need a professional security company to do the setup. In fact installing the Fortress Wireless Alarm System can be done by even a novice.

Tips on Installing an Alarm System
Before drilling holes for the alarm sensors I’ll suggest that you test all the sensors in different locations to get the best alarm sirens as possible. You don’t want to drill holes and then note that the sensors are too far apart or too close to each other because this could lead to a false alarm trigger.
If you are living in a house with multiple windows and doors then you should consider to buying extra alarm sensors and motion detectors for a full security setup.
Please read the instructional manual carefully it will give you a better understanding of how the setup can work to your advantage.
