When we sell an Alarm, we don't just take a box from a shelf to pack, we actually go as far as we can with programming the chosen accessories to the relevant control panels making the job of Installation far easier for you, obviously there are parts we are unable to do due to not being on site, but we like to think we cut out plenty of work for our customers.
We can also make up an Alarm to suit your exact requirements, you tell us what you need and we will find a way of making that exact system up for you.
Understanding the principles & terminology of Wireless Alarms is the first step to help you decide which system is best suited to your needs, listed below is a clear description of how they work and what the choice of accessories can actually do:
Wireless Control Panel:
This is the main brains behind any alarm system, it is used to arm & disarm the system (sometimes by a built in keypad, sometimes by remote control, remote keypad or remote access using a mobile phone), it is used to program the alarm functions and to control the alarm. They are normally powered by plug in transformers but we do have battery options available if access to power is a problem. The control panel is best to be located in a location that is protected by your detectors or in the event of using an outdoor battery siren panel ensure it is well out of reach.
An Auto-Dialler can be connected to some Alarm Panels, but in most cases this function is built into the Panel, it is designed to contact key-holders by Telephone or Text Message when activated. Some Diallers operate through the standard PSTN Telephone Lines & would be plugged into a extension port, others operate by using the Mobile Phone Networks by using SIM Cards.
If you do not want the Alarm to contact you if triggered, this function can be ignored.
These are small hand help devices that are used to Arm & Disarm the Alarm Control Panel from up to 50 metres away, this allows you to fit the control panel well away from the access door into the most safe and convenient location. Most Remote Controls also have an additional feature with a built in Panic Button which gives you the potential to trigger the Alarm in the event of a Security or Medical Emergency, ideal for keeping in your bedside table.
These are loud sirens located inside the premises, some are built into the control panel or in some cases inside a PIR, some are connected to the control panel by 2-core cable whilst others are wireless (depending on the chosen model). These are designed to wake you up and make it very uncomfortable for an Intruder should they gain access to the building.
These are loud weatherproof sirens & strobe lights that are installed to the outside of the property, they can be connected to the control panel by cable or by a wireless signal (depending on the chosen model). Some wireless sirens will need to be plugged into a power supply, whilst others can be run on batteries or built in solar panels (depending on the chosen model). An external sirens should normally be installed to the front of the property, making them visible to neighbours, passing police officers & traffic.
Technical description is 'Passive Infrared Detectors', these are battery operated sensors that are normally installed into the corner of a room, they are designed to detect changing infrared heat signals (given off by all mammals). In simple terms they will detect a person (or animal) walking into a room and then send a wireless signal back to the control panel. Not to be used if you have large pets moving around within the room when the alarm is armed.
These are identical to the wireless PIR, but connected to the control panel by cable for both the power supply and alarm signal.
Pet Friendly PIR's:
These are PIR's that are designed to be used when you have pets moving around near the PIR, the PIR's are programmed to ignore animals of a certain size (depending on chosen model). We would however recommend using alternative detectors (if possible), when large active animals are present.
These are very effective PIR's that have a wide & narrow detection pattern (similar shape to a curtain), ideal for protecting doorways, balconies & bay windows etc.
Wireless Magnetic Contact:
These are battery powered devices that have two parts, one half is installed onto the door/window frame, the other half is fitted to the door/window, when the door/window is closed both sections of the magnetic contact need to be nearly touching. When the door/window is opened the contact will send a signal back to the control panel. Very effective & popular alarm detector as it protects the property before an intruder has entered, it allows the owners to move around inside the property with the alarm armed, and is perfect for locations that have pets. Very simple to install using double side tape and 2 small screws in most applications.
Wireless Vibration Sensors:
These are battery powered sensors that are fixed onto the inside of a window or vulnerable door by double sided tape, if a sudden vibration is detected (though a door/window being forced open or smashed), a signal will be transmitted to the control panel. Ideal for locations at the rear of the property, garages or second floor windows with easy access.
Wireless Smoke Detectors:
Battery powered detectors that will send a signal back to the control panel if smoke is present.
Wireless Water Detectors:
Battery powered detectors designed to send a signal back to the control panel if water is detected, ideal for locations under bathtubs, sinks etc, (popular with apartments above ground level). A useful addition to your security system and investment as catching a small leak in time can save you thousands of pounds of damage.
Some wireless alarm systems have additional seperate keypads available (used to arm and disarm the control panel), very useful when you have multiple users to an alarm system. Some keypads will need to be powered by a plug in transformer, others will be battery powered (depending upon the chosen model). It also allows the control panel to be hidden away for either security or cosmetic reasons, the signal between the keypad and control panel is wireless.
We hope these descriptions has helped you somewhat, please be aware that it is normal in most installations to use a combination of the accessories listed above to suit your exact needs.
Assessing your Needs:
We have noticed over many years that many customers get confused at first about what Alarm will suit them, what accessories they should choose, it can be a daunting task when you first look into the project. And if you choose the wrong detectors for particular rooms all that will happen is that you will stop to use the Alarm eventually.
After many years of Installing Alarms, we are happy to guide you through the initial steps.
Think like an Intruder (burglar):
The first thing to do, is to understand how a potential intruder (burglar) may think, this will help you to make some decisions about the type & layout of the alarm system you are going to purchase:
RISK & REWARD:
A common thought process that a thief will automatically use:
Risk: What risk are they going to have to take, it they believe the premises is alarmed, the risk will be higher than a premises next door which is not, a few simple guide rules are listed below:
Reward: What will the reward be if they do decide to take the risk, a few simple tips are listed below, if they do not know what could be available to steal, or they do not know where they are located, then the risk is getting higher:
