This 3G Wireless Alarm System is perfect for Renters, the Elderly and anyone wanting a simple alarm system without the cost and bothers of having one professionally installed. It is a Wireless 3G Alarm with PIR motion detectors that will alert you via the mobile phone when the alarm is activated or events (be alerted when Johnny comes home from School).
So let's look at how it works - you need to purchase a 3G Mobile Phone Sim card with credit, obviously different carriers have different options. This system uses SMS's to operate so you do not need any data on the SIM. It also needs the ability to make phone calls, so try to find the best Phone / SMS mobile sim package. Aldi has a 365day sim card which is great, or maybe data share SIM from Telstra might be the go for you.
There are several modes this unit can operate. Standard Alarm, where you activate via the keyfobs(remotes) and when the system is alarmed, your mobile will receive an SMS and the system will also call your mobile. Up to 5 telephone numbers can be loaded via the Apple/Android App.
There is also an SOS feature or using the optional emergency pendant, this can be programmed to call a family member for an elderly person. This is actually an excellent feature, perfect for the elderly, this can be their house alarm and emergency caller all in 1 unit. OR you can be alerted whenever the system is Armed/disarmed or when the RFID tags are scanned by the kids when they come home from school.
The main unit plugs into power via the supplied power adapter, the main unit has a battery backup lasting for many hours should the power be cut. The sensors all take batteries that last for over 6 months, simple AA batteries in the PIR sensor. That is it, no other cables to run, everything is wireless (there is 2 wired inputs and wired external siren if required). The system is so simple, yet reliable. We have one on display in our office in Dural that is in use 24/7 should you require a demo.
