When considering installing access control keypads for your driveway gates there are many features to be considered and one such area of uncertainty lies in choosing between wired or wireless keypads. The type of keypad required and to be installed by an individual depends on the budget, preference and situation. There are different advantages and disadvantages of wired and wireless keypads available in the market.

Pros and cons of wired and wireless keypads:

  • Wireless keypads do not require any wiring system as they receive the signals through the radio waves. When this system was introduced it was considered to be unreliable because everyone had a misconception that this system can be deceived easily. But now with advancement of technology the scenario has completely changed and it is considered to be a reliable source of security.
  • Wireless keypad systems are easier to install and these can be placed anywhere provided they are within the range of the central control system. Therefore there is greater convenience of use.
  • Wireless keypads are sometimes less reliable compared to their hard wired counterparts because if sometimes they are not operated at proper frequency then there is problem in accessing the gates.
  • Wireless keypads also require that the user replace the batteries on the keypads on a regular basis which is not required in the case of wired keypads as these are powered from a nearby outlet. Therefore there is a high risk of wireless keypads failing if the batteries run out of charge.
  • In case of installing a new gate system where the ground is up and there is provision for hiding the cables then wired keypads are an obvious choice and these are also reliable and also easy to use.
  • When it comes to cost wireless keypads are cheaper than wired keypads because there is no need to buy wiring and cut wall and floors for installing them. Though the wireless units are bit more expensive.
  • Wireless keypads can be easily relocated to other places and even under renovation the wireless keypads can be easily moved.
