Legend has it that the city got its name in honor of John Cabot, who became the first European to sail into the harbor, the feast day of St. John the Baptist. However, the exact place of convergence of Cabot on the ground debatable. St. John’s has become an attractive place settling a variety of inhabitants. Recent year’s crime statistics have spotted dramatic increase of criminal activity.

Crime in the city actually isn't isolated in any one low-income neighborhood like most people like to assume. Crime can happen anywhere, any time.

For wireless alarms:

  • Full remote access to your alarm system via a powerful mobile app
  • These systems are totally wireless, except for the power adapter to the keypad
  • The wireless GSM alarms are an ideal solution for a home alarm system

Another advantage is the ability to quickly and easily add additional wireless or wired PIR sensors and magnetic sensors.

In terms of installation, Wireless alarms are very easy and convenient for installation. The time for installation is a fraction of the install time of a hardwired system. Another plus is the ability to install them yourself.

The cost for the installation of a wireless system will always be lower compared to that of wired alarms. Wireless alarm systems are much more mobile and independent with respect to the placement of the individual components.


The only real disadvantage of a wireless alarm system is the use of batteries on sensors. The good news is that the batteries should last you five years, which means you will not have to worry about replacing them frequently.
