In this day and age, we are always concerned about the safety and security of our home. Even if you live in a gated community, you can’t fully depend on the security guard to watch your homes from possible break-ins. That is where most people want to look for a good alarm system for the home. However, installation can be a hastle as we need to install so much wiring all over the house. If possible, I’d go with a wireless alarm system, and I just found out that it is so easy to install with this new brand, Onvia Vedo S2 made with technology from Korea.
I really like the looks of the Onvia Vedo Wireless Alarm Systems, which is a full-featured home security platform that installs in just a few minutes. Usually when we think of wireless, we imagine those flimsy types that we just stick on the walls. This is not the same. The Vedo S2 is not only sleek in design and full of features, it also delivers years of dependable, secure protection. It uses an advanced wireless technology that eliminates the hassle of running wires to detectors and sensors. This ensure that we can have a very quick easy installation as well as flexible placement around the house as every house is different in structure.
Onvia Vedo Wireless Alarm system was really created for people who are into DIY. There are no wires to run, and the system programming is simple; which is not to say that wireless security systems are less effective or reliable than a hardwired system. I have problems with my office alarm system, that everytime the alarm goes off, we need to get the installer to come and reset everything again. Vedo S2 does not require that as it is very simply to do the programming.
Installation of Vedo S2 takes about 15 minutes. After that, you will need a SIM card and just insert it. After turning it on, you will receive and SMS and a call when there is a break in.
There’s actually a mobile app for Android and iOS that you can sign in and make it easy to monitor your house while you are away. Just simply insert a SIM card, by then you will receive SMS and call when someone breaks into your house. You can also download Apps to your smart phone, through Apps, you can have a better control over this alarm system.

Wireless Remote Control
There is the remote control that allows you to control your security system whether you are away or back home. When emergency happens, press the sos button to send an emergency signal to the control panel. This remote is quite small so it can actually be doubled taped somewhere in the house like in the kitchen so that it won’t be lost and that everyone knows where to go to press the emergency button. There are two remote so the other one can be brought and attached to your keys or kept in the car.
Wireless P.I.R Motion Detector
This is the motion detector above with passive infrared motion detector and is designed to sense infrared radiation emitted from intruders and send the signal to the control panel.
Wireless Door/Window Sensor
This is the magnetic sensor for any opening like your home doors and windows. It will send a wireless signal to the control panel, when a door or window is opened. The piece on the left is the transmitter while the small piece is the magnet.
When installing, they need to be placed close together while ensuring the door can still be opened and closed without the 2 piece touching each other.
I can just install it to the top or side of the door so that the alarm will be activated should an intruder come in and open the main door. When the magnet is moved away from the sensor, what happens is the sensor will transmit a signal to the control panel and result in an alarm activation. It’s so easy to install, just using double sided tape.
For those of us with pets in the house, cats or dogs or other animals, the system has a bypass function thus it will not be triggered when the animals walk about. This is really important for me since I have a pet cat.
