Burglar Alarm System Components

Our standard security and care system provides everything needed to secure the average home, including the following:

Outside Your Home

Most burglaries are unplanned and committed by opportunists that are after easy takings from soft targets.

All MonitoredHaus installations benefit from an attractive low profile Dummy Bell Box which is fixed in clear view to the outside of your house to show that your home is secured and not an easy target.

We provide you with a Monitored Alarm Disc for you to display inside your front door or window that states that your security system is maintained, active and monitored.

We also provide you with a number of window stickers that can be placed inside other ground floor windows to show that you have professionally installed security.

Inside your Home

Approximately one third of burglar alarm systems don't get used regularly because their owners find them to be too fiddly; which is why we have designed our system to be as easy to use as possible:

The Remote Key Pad (RKP) is the part of your alarm that allows you to operate your alarm system. With the flap open you have access to the key pad which allows you to use your four digit pin number to set or un-set part of the system.

We provide 4 special Keyfobs with each installation; each fob has an electronic chip inside which only works on your system. To operate the system simply hold your fob to the window on the RKP and the system will set or un-set. Keyfobs can also be used to set part of the system.

The Detection Sensors

Passive Infrared Detectors (PIRs) are installed in the corner of your rooms to give the best security cover. PIRs detect movement and heat sending a warning signal to the control panel; when the alarm is set this will activate the siren and call the monitoring station. If you have pets we will supply special pet immune PIRs (which ignore pets of up to 36kg) in the place of standard units at no additional cost.

Door Contacts are magnetically operated switches that will detect the opening of any door or window they are fitted to. We fit a Door Contact to your normal entry exit door and when the alarm is set you will hear a beeping to remind you to un-set the alarm as you enter.

The fact that these detection devises are wire free makes them ideal for securing out-buildings, sheds or even caravans that are kept within 150 metres (480 feet) of your home.

The Components Not On View

Our Security and Care System has a variety of components that don't need to be accessible, our engineers do their utmost to fit these in cupboards or under the stairs out of sight.

The Control Panel contains the systems processor, back-up battery and communications modules. This solid state unit is hardwired to the mains supply, your telephone line, the sounder, radio receiver and to the Remote Key Pad.

The Radio Receiver is connected directly to the Control Panel; it receives signals and data from all of the sensors attached to your system as well as receiving activation signals from the care pendant.

The 103db Internal Sounder is powered from the mains via the Control Panel but will automatically switch to the systems battery back-up in cases of power failure. When activated the siren continues for a maximum of 15 minutes.

Optional System Extras

Our Security & Care System can support a variety of additional sensors, including:

Wireless Smoke Detectors which activate the alarm system (whether it is set or not) and contact the monitoring station with a separate and definable signal; so that the appropriate action can be taken.

Wireless Flood Detectors detect flooding from burst or leaking pipes. Generally fitted behind water-using services, the alarm is activated as water reaches the sensor and the monitoring station notified.

With the addition of a Care Activation Pendant your security system becomes a Care system; especially useful for elderly or infirm persons at home alone.
