Windows are one the most common access point for thieves, that is why it is so important to have contacts on all windows of your home or business. They work the same way as a door contact.
When a door is opened, a contact sensor is triggered. If the system is armed, a signal is sent to the central monitoring station. If it is not armed, the door will chime.
The keypad will provide you with your systems status and is typically located near the main entrance of your home or business so that you can easily arm and disarm your system when you arrive and depart.
The control panel is essentially the "brains" of a security system. Typically they are installed inside a closet or other hidden area of your home or business.
A humidity sensor measures and
reports an in humidity in the the air,
usually indicating a problem with an air conditioning system. Humidity sensors are especially useful for northern visitors who
leave for extended periods of time.
Motion detectors sense intruders
when your alarm system is armed. When the system is disarmed, you are able to walk freely around your home or business without the authorities being notified.
A water sensor, also known as a flood sensor, detects the presence of water. They are typically installed in basements, cellars, bathrooms, laundry rooms, or anywhere else where there likely could be water damage.
Holdup panic buttons send out a silent alarm to authorities once pushed, alerting them that you assistance. These are typically used in retail stores as "under the counter buttons".
This type of motion detector will not trigger your alarm system if it is an animal of a certain size. This helps to reduce false alarms.
The battery backup is an alarm battery that will ensure your security system will stay
operational if there is a power
failure. These will typically power an entire system for 8-12 hours, or in some cases even longer.
You will rest better at night knowing that a close watch is being kept on your property day and night, even if you're out of town. This weatherproof day/night bullet camera can be used both indoors and outdoors, and it connects to your DVR so that you can view or record any activity around your property.
A heat detector is a device that detects a high temperature or a rapid rate-of-rise in temperature. If the temperature rises above a predetermined threshold, then an alarm signal is triggered. Excessive heat heat can be a precursor to combustion.
The outdoor dome camera is similar to the indoor dome camera, however the outdoor dome camera is vandal-proof and weatherproof. The vandal proof dome cover makes this security camera extremely tricky to be tampered with.
Temperature sensors send an alarm when a preset temperature is reached or a rapid change in temperature occurs. When the central monitoring station receives a temperature sensor alarm, the operator will call the client to notify them of the unwanted temperature range.
Indoor dome cameras can be mounted on the wall or ceiling and adjusted to view any angle. The dome is designed to protect the camera inside. They are not weather tight and should not be installed where they are exposed to moisture or severe temperatures.
Glassbreak detectors trigger an alarm at the vibration or sound of breaking glass. Door and window contacts can only go so far. If a burglar breaks a first floor window (a very rare occurrence), they can enter the building without triggering contacts.
External infrared beams, designed to protect the immediate perimeter of a building. They are used to activate an alarm system before a break-in occurs, minimizing property damage and risk to on-site personnel.
Our smoke detectors are monitored, low voltage detectors that are connected to the security system. They will sound and send a signal to the central monitoring station when triggered by smoke. It is very important to have monitored smoke detectors if you want to protect your life and property.
This device provides a time and cost
saving solution for temperature
sensitive areas, such a wine cellar,
by having an automated refrigerator
temperature monitoring system.
