The control panel forms the heart and brain of any intruder alarm system. The main CPU is usually hidden away somewhere within the protected premises away from the entry/exit route for its own protection. This piece of equipment makes no audible noises and has no speakers or internal sounders within its case so as not to draw attention to its location.
Within the control panel is the back up battery. This will keep the system active in the event of a power cut for upto 12 hours and should still have enough energy left to run the sounders and communicators for 15 minutes.
The remote keypad(s) are the user interface points of the system. This is where day to day operation of the system happens, turning the alarm on and off. Our standard remote keypads have real English LCD displays for ease of use and understanding. All you have to do is follow the instructions on the screen!
Turning the system on and off couldn't be easier, either enter a four digit code of your own choice or use a proximity fob where you need only to swipe the keypad with a small tag attached to your keys.
