COVID-19 has been one of the most significant global events in recent history, impacting nearly every aspect of our lives. Working from home was one of the most significant changes to come from it and quickly became the new norm for millions of people. Since the easing of the lockdown in the Spring of 2022, many employers keenly adopted hybrid working due to its financial benefits and work/life flexibility.

Figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) show that from September 2022 – January 2023, 44% of workers reported home or hybrid working, and 56% reported only travelling to work in the last seven days.

So, where does this leave home security? Since the working public has been back in the office (whether that be hybrid working or full-time), people’s homes are once again empty at irregular periods throughout the week, opening an opportunity for burglars and thieves.

Safeguard Your Home with Advanced Wireless Home Alarms

In our ever-changing world, it is essential to prioritise the safety and security of our homes. With the rise of smart technology, wireless home alarms have emerged as a reliable and efficient means of protecting our properties. In this blog, we will explore the benefits and features of the fast-emerging and advancing Ajax smart home security systems, highlighting their importance in safeguarding your home and providing peace of mind, no matter where you are, Monday to Friday.

Installing a wireless domestic alarm has become more of a necessity and a simple way to maximise security when working in ‘the home office’ or away from home in the city. Whatever your daily routine, whether it involves full-time office work in the big smoke, a ‘hybrid workspace or even working from home, protecting your property shouldn’t be overlooked.

Easy Installation and Flexibility

Unlike traditional wired systems, wireless home alarms are remarkably easy to install. The absence of complex wiring eliminates the need for extensive installation procedures, making it a hassle-free experience. Additionally, wireless alarms offer great flexibility, allowing you to reposition sensors and detectors as needed without any wiring constraints. This adaptability ensures optimal coverage and protection for your entire property.

Remote Access

One of the most significant advantages of home burglar alarms being wireless is their integration with modern technology. Many systems provide remote monitoring and control capabilities through smartphone applications or web interfaces. This means you can keep an eye on your home’s security even when you are away. With just a few taps on your phone, you can arm or disarm the system, receive real-time notifications, and even view live video feeds from connected cameras.

Wireless Connectivity

Wireless security systems use Wi-Fi or cellular networks to connect to the internet, meaning you do not need a wired connection. Wireless connectivity ensures that your security system is always connected to the internet, so you will always receive alerts and notifications if there is any unusual activity in your home.

Enhanced Privacy and Safety Measures

The benefit of wireless domestic home alarms empowers you to take additional privacy and safety measures for your household. For instance, you can configure the system to ensure maximum privacy on social media by receiving alerts when your private information is at risk. Furthermore, some wireless alarm systems offer features like panic buttons or duress codes, allowing you to discreetly signal for help in emergencies.


By connecting to your smart home ecosystem, these domestic alarms can sync with voice assistants, smart locks, lighting systems, and more. This integration enables advanced automation, such as automatically arming the alarm when you leave or turning on lights in response to detected motion. The synergy between these devices adds an extra layer of protection and creates a more secure environment.

An exterior view of a home in the winter months

Winter is certainly here with colder weather and darker nights

However, it’s not just the poor weather conditions that the winter season brings. According to House Beautiful Magazine, homes are 50% more likely to be broken into over winter. November and December have been labelled the worst months in the calendar for burglaries. Thieves look to take advantage of the shorter days, leaving homes and gardens under cover of darkness for longer.

Although typically, we may spend more time in our homes during the winter, it is a peak time for burglaries. Security firms and installers advise that people check their home security to deter burglars that may be targeting their property.

At Fairlea Wireless Alarm Systems, we utilise scenarios to boost your home, office, or business security. With the latest research and a vastly experienced team on hand; we also understand how to use smart products to our advantage which is why we thoroughly trust Ajax for security and safety. With the latest innovative and custom-made products, Ajax wireless alarm systems go beyond detecting and notifying to resist intruders actively, they act as a preventative measure. 

There are some clear features and benefits that set Ajax wireless alarm systems apart from the competition and we have listed these below enabling you to truly see the advantage of having an Ajax alarm installed in your home or business: 

Ajax Night Mode

Secure peace of mind with the state-of-the-art smart night mode offering scenarios to secure the perimeter of your property completely. With night node switched on, you can continue to move inside your home/property knowing you have the utmost security setup outside of your property. With the option of activating low-level outdoor lighting through scheduled intervals or manually to any access points to deter burglars, night mode is designed to make you safe every night and throughout the year.

MotionProtect Outdoors

The innovative MotionProtect Outdoor wireless alarm from Ajax is the smart detection outdoor system you can’t be without.

With traditional spotlights that include motion detectors, one light will activate.
With the MotionProtect, multiple spotlights will start, and audio systems or sirens will sound to deter the most persistent intruder. Give yourself peace of mind and 24/7 outdoor security with MotionProtect Outdoor


Your solution to fire detection and prevention, Fire Protect smoke and heat detector alarms. On detection of a fire or a sharp temperature rise, the Ajax WallSwitch will switch off any potential cause of ignition or any device that will increase the danger once a fire is detected. 

Automated Scenarios enabled for your safety

The WallSwitch and Socket is ideal for when the property is vacant for a prolonged period. The WallSwitch and Socket is used in scenarios to turn lights on and off. In addition, sound systems or TVs can be switched on to give the impression that somebody is home when they are not. A great advantage for increased security.

Another benefit of Ajax smart systems is the Arm/Disarm feature. Automated scenarios will activate once the system is armed or disarmed. This includes auto door locking, shutters or grills lowering and raising, and additional lighting for safe exit or entry. All of which give the impression that someone is either at home or initiating this action, further enhancing the security of your property.
