An alarm panel is the brain of your alarm system, all sensors are linked to the panel. When a sensor is tripped a signal is sent to the panel and your siren will be triggered as well as a radio signal notifying your armed response.
AC power is provided to a security system through a plug-in transformer. You must run a wire between the transformer and the alarm panel to transmit power. This is a big step in setting up a system
The Battery is used to provide backup power during Load Shedding or Power Outages.
Some alarm panels allow for multiple keypads
Keypads allow for arming/disarming and partitioning (dividing your alarm into different areas..outside/inside)
You need a Siren to sound when your alarm is triggered to alert yourself, your neighbours, draw attention to the vicinity and hopefully scare off the intruders.
Your sensors are the devices that detect movement. You have different types of sensors: 1) Passives – detect movement using infrared heat sensing. 2) Dual Technology Sensors which uses infrared & microwave sensing technologies to help reduce false alarms. 3)Door Contacts – detects the opening & closing of doors. 4)Smoke Sensors -detecting fire
Some alarm panels are only a wired panel, where your sensors are wired to your panel. By adding a Wireless Expansion Module -RTX3, it gives your panel wireless capabilities, allowing for wireless sensors and/or remotes to communicate with your panel.
An IP Module allows you to control(arm/bypass/disarm) and manage your alarm system remotely from anywhere at anytime. A great tool that gives you piece of mind and ultimate control through the app. The apps do have an annual fee for the service but its cost effective, user friendly & time saving
