Alarm System Devices

The following details popular alarm devices that can be connected to most alarm systems. Please note the images shown are for illustration purposes only and may differ depending on the brand of Alarm System you choose.

PIR - Motion Detector

The most common movement sensing device, it uses infrared light to detect motion within its range

Types

  • Wireless - connects to the alarm system via a wireless receiver
  • Hard wired - connects to the alarm system directly with a wire
  • Pet immune - allows small pets to move around inside whilst the alarm system is activated
  • Wide angled - special PIRs that can detect motion for a broader angle.
  • Outdoor - weather proof PIRs specifically designed for outdoor detection
  • 360 - detects motion in a complete 360 degree range

Magnetic Reed Switch

A sensor that is installed on doors and windows to detect opening. The alarm is triggered when the two halves of the sensor are parted.

Types

  • Wireless - connects to the alarm system via a wireless receiver
  • Hard wired - connects to the alarm system directly with a wire
  • Flush mount - mounted flush on doors or windows
  • Surface mount - mounted on the surface of the doors or windows
  • Roller door - specifically designed to be attached to roller doors

Glass Breaks

This sensor detects if a pane of glass is shattered or broken. Glass break detectors are triggered by noise or vibrations that exceed a certain threshold.

Types

  • Wireless - connects to the alarm system via a wireless receiver
  • Hard wired - connects to the alarm system directly with a wire

Remote Controls

A wireless remote device can be used to arm and disarm your system at the press of a button.

Unused buttons on the remote can be programmed to operate other devices at your site, such as an automatic garage roller door.

This device is requires a wireless receiver which comes standard with all of our wireless alarm system kits.

Hold Up Button

This device is used to trigger a hold up alarm event during a hold up situation at commercial premises. It is also sometimes as a panic button at residential premises. Australian standards require a dual-button device which can only be triggered when both buttons are pressed at the same time.

This device requires back-to-base monitoring to be effective.

Duress

This device is designed to be worn by a person on the site. It will wirelessly activate a duress alarm when pressed. It is particularly useful for emergency situations where there is a threat to the health or safety of a person.

This device requires back-to-base monitoring to be effective.

Smoke Detector

A smoke detector integrated with your alarm system will be activated when it detects smoke or substances that mimic smoke. Our smoke detectors are compliant to Australian Standards including a 9v back up battery.

This device is most effective when used with back-to-base monitoring services.

Wireless Receiver

A wireless receiver allows wireless devices to communicate with the alarm panel. It has a 300 metre range in open air.

This usually comes standard in a wireless alarm system kit.

Keypad

This device is the interface to the alarm system. You can use it to arm and disarm the alarm system, program users, change settings, run tests and more.

Siren

The alarm siren is a loud noise making device that sounds when the alarm is activated.

Types

  • Internal Siren - installed in a central location within the home, this is designed to disturb and scare off intruders
  • External Siren - installed outside of the premises, this is designed to attract attention to the site when the alarm system is triggered. To let others know there has been a situation, the attached strobe light continue to flash even after the siren has stopped sounding

Alarm Panel

The alarm panel is typically housed within an alarm box together with a back up battery. It is where all the alarm devices are connected to create your alarm system.

The alarm box is usually constructed of sturdy metal housing with tamper detection capabilities.

IP Modules

An IP Module is a device that can be connected to compatible Alarm Systems to allow for back-to-base monitoring via an internet connection, rather than using the phone line. This reduces the costs for communicating with the monitoring centre as your system will no longer need to make any phone calls.

For more information on the benefits of IP monitoring, please read more at the services section of this site.
