Wireless signals are sound waves, traveling through air. Wireless devices can connect and "talk" to each other, even though there is no physical connection or wire between them.
Cellular communication is one form of wireless technology. Our mobile phones use cellular technology so we can talk and exchange data, no matter where we are.
Why are wireless home alarm systems better than the traditional wired kind? Because wireless security components are safer. An alarm system can't help you if its connection to the monitoring station is broken. Burglars have found it easy to break that connection, with a simple pair of wire cutters. If a burglar snips the phone or cable lines, the system goes down. Wireless systems eliminate this threat, because there are no wires for burglars to cut!
