Wireless vs wired.

It it true that a wiresless system is susceptible to being tripped by
thunderstorms. I have heard of systems even being tripped by birds
flying overhead!
If this is not true, or if it all depends on the brand, what would be a
good one?
Generally I have poor opinion of the Made in China label, but all the
systems I have glimpsed on the WWW do not indicate where their origin.
Can anybody tell me which ones to avoid?

You'd better get used to it, the way things are going pretty soon the West will have exported all its manufacturing, along with its associated technology to China.

Birds is a new one... maybe the Belgian Cuckoo Bird The watchword for wireless is "supervised". If it doesn't send check-in signals, it's crap.

I've hundreds of wireless alarms out in the field and have never had one tripped by a thunderstorm or a bird (unless maybe the bird was IN the building and tripped a motion detector).
China? I don't buy or sell Chinese alarms.

Isn't that the system that traps the intruder and drips water on his forehead for the length of time it takes for the cops to show up?

I've come to the same conclusion. Find out how much shes willing to give you..... to move the detector. Ya never know. You could be back again and again moving that thing all around the house.
