Wireless and wired both are important.If u talk about sensor then go for the wireless because its fast and more efficient but if u talk about cameras then i think wired would be more reliable because you need speed for live monitoring and wireless not provide such speed.

Wrong question - reliable in terms of what? And a wrong answer - there is no inherent relationship between a sensor speed and its mode of communication.
The main (and essentially the only one) advantage of wireless versus wired systems is the ease of installation. While there are many specific issues, more often than not brought about by design constraints beginning with the cost and ending with maintenance, if you can wire-in a system without too much pain, do it.
With the wireless you'll have many issues to look after: batteries replacement, electromagnetic interference, hacking and that's just the beginning. So take your pick. There is no simple answer. But don't go with wireless just because ii looks stylish.
