Red alloy wires are a type of surface wire. Surface wires are the primary type of wire. They must be placed on a solid surface. They can be run up walls and such, but will fall if the block they are sitting on is removed, much like torches. Wires can also be run around corners or between edges. These are the types of wires that you will use most often. The following properties are shared among every type of surface wire.

Wire edge.png Wires can snap onto other wires or devices within the same block.
Wire corner.png Wires will connect around corners to other wires or devices.
Wire cover.png Wire connections can be obscured by other parts such as covers.

A red alloy wire will power anything that it is connected to, as well as any block around it. It also strongly powers the block it is sitting on. If the block it is attached to is strongly powered, then the wire will also be powered up.

Red alloy wires will connect to any thing that can interface with redstone, such as a piston. However, even if it doesn't visually connect, any adjacent blocks will be powered. The block it is sitting on will receive a strong signal, while all other block around it will get a weak signal. No visual connections doesn't mean that block won't be affected.
