Choose between a Wired or Wireless setup


Step 1 - Alarm Panel

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.

Step 2 - Power Supply and Battery

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.

Step 3 - Keypad

Some alarm panels allow for multiple keypads

Keypads allow for arming/disarming and partitioning (dividing your alarm into different areas..outside/inside)

Step 4 - Siren

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.

Step 5 - Sensors

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

Step 6 - Wireless Expansion Module - RTX3 - Optional

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.

Step 7 - IP Module - Optional

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

Step 8 - Cabling, consumables and extras
