Hearing a thief in the house at night or returning from work and finding disordered rooms can be a real trauma, we can literally be paralyzed by fear, not knowing how to react.
If you don’t want to risk one of these unpleasant episodes, which we hear more and more frequently about from our neighbors and friends, a good solution is to choose a home burglar alarm.
Having an effective anti-theft device offers many benefits, it warns us if someone is trying to tamper with our system, or it scares the thief if found inside the house, especially during the night.
Wifi antitheft devices have a great advantage over traditional devices: they are much simpler to install.
Even if you don’t know the technical notions for wiring an alarm system, you can mount these devices in a few minutes, without having to contact an expert.
Since these anti-intrusion systems are wireless, it will not be necessary to use cables or other connections as the transmission system will use the wireless frequency and you can manage it via a comfortable keyboard, a remote control, your smartphone or tablet.
Now let’s take a look at what we can find in the market!

We need to remind you that this anti-theft kit can be modulated up to 48 sensors (not many but is still able to satisfy the needs of the vast majority of users) and that the starting kit includes four devices: the base, or the control unit of the kit, connected to the Wi-Fi router, intelligent door sensor, motion sensor and siren.

Tiiwee Home Alarm Kit XL
So far we have talked about low cost smart and wireless home anti-theft systems, but nobody is as low cost as this Tiwee system, which offers the best compromise for those who do not want to spend a lot of money, but still want to get good protection for their home.
This anti-theft kit can be installed and configured with a truly exceptional ease, proving to be the best for those who intend to use the kit in second homes or offices, perhaps moving it from time to time based on their needs.
Among the characteristics of the system, as related to its low price are the support of up to 40 different sensors, the lack of a tamper-proof function, the absence of smartphone connectivity, as it can only be used via remote control. It does not have a GSM module and therefore cannot send SMS in the event of a break-in.
The system also has an alarm siren, 2 door and window sensors, 1 movement sensor, 2 remote controls to activate and deactivate the system. It is an excellent basic anti-theft device for those who want to spend little, but still feel safe.
iSmart Alarm Essential Pack
Let’s start with the iSmart Alarm Essential Pack, surely one of the best smart and wireless burglar alarms, easy to install and configure. It allows you to manage free cloud storage (no need to subscribe) and can support up to 70 devices. However, a GSM module is missing and the main hub cannot be powered by batteries: this could be a problem in the event of a power failure, unless install an uninterruptible power supply.
Having said that, this excellent smart and wireless anti-theft system includes some elements that may make it worth it making the purchase.
The first is CubeOne, the brain of the system, connected to Wi-Fi via Ethernet and able to communicate with all the other components of the security system. It can be managed and configured via the iOS or Android app of your smartphone. It has an internal siren and must be constantly connected to the electrical network.
Together with the CubeOne we also find a wall-mounted, battery-powered motion sensor with movement monitoring up to 3 meters, a magnetic sensor for doors and windows, which can be installed up to 100 meters away from the CubeOne, a remote control, useful when you don’t have your smartphone at hand, and a video camera even for night shots.
The system can be easily integrated with other sensors not included in the basic kit, but available separately to better personalize your apartment.
