What is a Legacy 345 MHz Security System?

A Legacy 345 MHz wireless frequency security system is a type of wireless security system that operates on a frequency of 345 MHz. This type of system is often used in older homes and buildings that were constructed before the advent of more modern wireless communication technologies. These systems typically use wireless sensors and transmitters to communicate with a central control panel, which is used to monitor the status of the security system and activate alarms to notify authority the end user and/or GeoArm central monitoring station in the event of a breach or other security event. Although Legacy 345 MHz wireless frequency security systems are still in use today (e.g. Honeywell Home LYNX Plus L3000, Honeywell Home LYNX Touch L5200/L5210/L7000, Qolsys IQ Panel 2, Qolsys IQ Panel 2+, Qolsys IQ Panel 4, Qolsys IQ4 Hub, Qolsys IQ4 NS, and Qolsys IQ Pro compatible panels), but they are becoming less common as newer and more secure wireless encrypted communication technologies such as; PowerG, S-Line, SiX-Series, PROSiX-Series and Z-Wave Plus have become more widely available and affordable.

The main reasons to choose a Legacy 345 MHz security system are:

1. Cost-Effectiveness: Legacy 345 MHz wireless frequency security systems are often more affordable than newer, more advanced security systems. This makes them an attractive option for people on a budget.

2. Compatibility with Existing Equipment: If you have an older home or building with existing security equipment that operates on the 345 MHz frequency, then a legacy system may be the best option. This allows you to continue using your existing equipment without having to upgrade to newer equipment.

3. Simplicity: Legacy 345 MHz security systems tend to be less complex than newer systems, making them easier to install and maintain.

4. Long-Range Coverage: Legacy 345 MHz wireless frequency signals can travel longer distances than newer frequencies, making these systems ideal for large homes or buildings with multiple floors.

5. Reliability: Since 345 MHz frequency is not widely used anymore, there is less likelihood of interference from other devices or systems, which can make the security system more reliable.
