    I'm thinking of putting in an alarm system in my house, but I don't want a "hard wire" system. Does anyone know of a "wireless" system, or where I can look for one that I can install with a transmitter that I can monitor each entrance? Thanks.

    Try this link http://www.x10.com/homepage.htm

    They have these handy systems that you can just keep adding on and on as your needs grow... system can also control light modules, garage doors, etc...

    IMO, X-10 is not nearly reliable enough for an alarm application. I use it extensively here, but I'm hoping that an improved system is going to get reasonable in price soon.

    Wireless is simple to install compared to wired but you sure do sacrifice some stability.

    Unless you have an unusual situation I would suggest reconsidering hard wire systems. They are more reliable. IMO
