A security alarm is a system designed to detect intrusion, such as unauthorized entry, into a building or other areas such as a home or school. Security alarms used in residential, commercial, industrial, and military properties protect against burglary (theft) or property damage, as well as personal protection against intruders. Security alerts in neighborhoods show a connection with the diminished robbery.
Prisons also use security systems for the control of inmates. At Informed Systems we are the leading wholesale National distributor of LightSYS Panel, Prosys Alarm Panel, IDS Alarm Panel, Secolink Alarm Panel, and also Honeywell Intruder Alarm Panels. We offer both Hard wired and Wireless Intruder Alarm Systems with the following component;
- The premises control unit (PCU), Alarm control panel (ACP), or simply panel: The “brain” of the system; reads sensor inputs, tracks arm/disarm status, and signals intrusions. In a modern device, there are typically one or more computer circuit boards inside a metal enclosure. Many newer networks often use sealed plastic boxes out in the open. Some also have their control units built-in to the keypad or other human-machine interface.
- Sensors: Devices that detect intrusions. Sensors’ locations are at the perimeter of the protected area, within it, or both. Sensors can detect intruders by different methods. For example, sensors can monitor doors and windows for openings or monitor unoccupied interiors for motions, sound, vibration, or other disturbances
- Alerting devices: These indicate an alarm condition. Most commonly, these are bells, sirens, also and or flashing lights. Alerting devices serve the dual purposes of warning occupants of intrusion and potentially scaring off burglars. These devices can also warn occupants of a fire or smoke condition
- Keypads: Small devices, typically wall-mounted, function as the human-machine interface to the system. In addition to buttons, keypads typically feature indicator lights, a small multi-character display, or both.
- Interconnections between components. Interconnections may consist of direct wiring to the control unit or wireless links with local power supplies.
- Hard Wired Intruder Alarm Systems. At Informed Systems, wired Alarm Systems are the first solution for Intruder Alarm Systems and are widely used as they are most reliable in Nairobi, Kenya. At Informed Systems we are the leading wholesale National distributor of wired intruder alarm systems of LightSYS Panel, Prosys Alarm Panel, IDS Alarm Panel, Secolink Alarm Panel, and also Honeywell Intruder Alarm Panels. Wired Alarm Systems have cabling connecting the control panel to the motion sensors, vibration sensors, magnetic contacts (MC), Panic buttons, Siren, and to the arming and disarming keypads. The wired Alarm Systems have a power backup battery that can be used by the system once there is a power shortage. Once a motion or vibration is detected and or a magnetic contact is no out of contact, a notification is send to the panel about the intrusion and the panel activates the siren and the alarm goes off.
Wireless Intruder Alarm Systems.
It is worth noting that, although the name suggests a wireless burglar alarm system is completely without wires, the control panel is wired to a power source – otherwise it wouldn’t work. The wireless part comes into play with the sensors, which communicate information to the control panel. At Informed Systems we are the leading wholesale National Distributors of wireless intruder alarm systems of LightSYS Panel, Prosys Alarm Panel, IDS Alarm Panel, Secolink Alarm Panel, and also Honeywell Intruder Alarm Panels.
Informed Systems wireless Intruder alarms are advantageous in a way that;
- They are easy to install and take short time to install.
- Modern wireless systems are now sufficiently reliable to be practical.
- They offer more flexibility when moving home or premises. You can, in theory take the system with you.
