GreenLink and home security
In one of our earlier blogs, we talk about planning your home security system, and it would be silly not to discuss the technology that we use to help secure your home. To begin with, we wholeheartedly believe in the quality of products that come from Honeywell. From glass break sensors to control panels, we will have your whole house covered and secured.
Here is some of the technology we use when installing a home security system:
Honeywell FG1625RFM Glass Break Sensor:
The Honeywell Glassbreak Detector is their latest in detectors that offers FlexCore signal processing. With FlexCore processing the detector lowers the event of a false alarm because it can tell the difference between breaking glass and other sharp noises such as knocking on the door, things being dropped, etc.
This detector requires a 1″ diameter hole to fit snuggly and securely into a drop ceiling or sheetrock. The detector can be tested by clapping your hands while it is in test mode. You can also select the sensitivity of it by adjusting two switches in the unit with a small screwdriver. This sensor can detect breaks in all types of glass including plate, tempered,laminated, and wired to name a few.
Honeywell Motion Sensor:
This new motion sensor features dual technology with built in Fresnel optics, a look down screen, cover and wall tampers and selectable pet immunity. With a dual technology device two separate areas must be triggered, passive infrared and microwave ranges, for the motion sensor to register an alarm condition. This will help to reduce false alarms from inanimate objects such as blowing curtains, yet still alert you to movement being engaged by a human subject. The pet immunity feature of this motion detector will help prevent false alarms from movement of any pet under 100 lbs.
Honeywell Magnetic Door and Window Contact:
The Honeywell 944T is a wired 3/8” diameter recessed door or window contact with screw terminals instead of leads. The 944T is ideal for all hardwired security systems and compatible with Honeywell’s VISTA series of wired alarm panels. Unlike surface mount contacts, the 944T is recessed into the door and door frame, or window and window frame.
Honeywell Lynx Touch 7000:
Honeywell’s Lynx Touch 7000 control system features a bright, 7″ full-color touchscreen with graphic icons and intuitive prompts for easy operation. It features on-screen video, Z-Wave® automation capabilities, advanced alarm communications, garage door notification and control.
This panel comes complete with a Connect app that provides consumers with the ability to use an iOS or Android™ device to view video and operate the system on or off the premises.
Honeywell Total Connect:
