Local alarm systems are different from wired and wireless systems in the way that they are not monitored. You install the sensors (i.e. cameras or motion sensors) yourself through out the interior and exterior of your property. Local security systems do not have central control panels. Instead, you can control and even access live views directly from your phone or tablet.

All these devices are wired to a central control panel, as well as a “black box”. The black box saves all recordings for a set period of time before dumping to make room for new footage.
If the wired alarm system is tripped without being deactivated in a set amount of time, the alarm sounds, and the monitoring company is notified. When the monitoring company receives an alert, they immediately attempt to reach the home or business owner. If they are unsuccessful in reaching the account holder then the local authorities are contacted.
Wired systems generally have a high installation fee as well a recurring monthly cost depending on what service and provider you choose.

Wireless systems still come with a central control panel. You are also able to seamlessly monitor and control your system of cameras from your phone or tablet.
Just like the Wired security systems, when your wireless alarm system is tripped, the alarm sounds, and your monitoring company is notified. You also receive a notification on your phone or tablet. If you do not respond to the notification then, your monitoring company will attempt to reach you. If they are unsuccessful in contacting you then local emergency services are contacted.
