Alarm Control Panel
This is the brain of the system. It’s here that all detectors, sirens, telephone jack (where applicable) and code pads wire back to and are controlled.
The DSC Control Panel comes protected in a metal cabinet that isn’t much larger than a white pages phone book and is usually installed on the top shelf of a wardrobe or linen press – out of sight.
Power Supply &Back-Up Battery
The system will be powered by normal main power (power point). But what happens in the event of a black-out or if an intruder turns off the power from the meter box?… The System Power Supply will immediately revert to its built in Long Life Back-up Battery and continue to operate normally for up to 24 hours.
These are the access to the alarm system.Their design is so compact and thin, they mount almost flush to the wall without reducing the size of the keys for ease of use.Code Pads also come with a full range of indicators, providing visual reporting of alarm status and security conditions throughout all zones.Three fast action emergency buttons provide one button reporting of fire, ambulance or intruder to the alarm system.
Code Pads come in a range of LED and LCD options, and are usually located at the entry areas.
Simply put, motion detectors are the eyes of an alarm system and are responsible for detecting movement within the area that they are covering.
There are a range of Motion Detectors for specific applications, including detectors specifically designed for harsher environments and ones being able to tell the difference between a human and the family pet.
Magnetic Door / Window Reed Switches
These sensors detect a door or window being forced open.
High Decibel Internal Screamer
This non-obtrusive noise maker is usually located on the ceiling, and it will SCREAM when an intruder is detected. This will make the intruder’s time inside the premises unpleasant and short.
Polycarbonate External Siren and Strobe Light
The outside siren is a little different to the internal screamer in that for it to make an impact outside, the sound needs to carry further.
The siren is protected from weather and tampering in a polycarbonate siren cover which is durable and has a built-in tamper sensor that will set the siren sounding should an intruder attempt to unscrew it off a wall.
The siren cover also has a blue flashing strobe light which flashes when the siren is sounding.
To comply with noise pollution regulations the siren inside and outside both need to reset after 5 minutes.
Remote Control Transmitters and Receiver
This eliminates the need for entry delay times.
Which triggers the alarm system in a panic situation.
For a Security Alarm System to be truly effective, it needs to be specifically tailored to the special needs of each client.
For an average System, however, the prices usually range between $1 000.00 and $1 800.00
