Door/Window Contact

A magnetically activated switch installed on a door or window. They can be 'hard wire' or 'wireless', hidden (recessed) or surface mounted. They only communicate information to the control panel whether the door or window is open or closed.  

Glassbreak Detector

A device located on the ceiling or wall to detect the sound or vibration of the glass within a certain area being broke. The detector can be hard wire or wireless, and can be recessed or surface mounted. 

Window Security Screen

A regular window screen as you know it, except it covers the whole window, top to bottom with screen, instead of just the bottom half. It has a very small wire woven within the screen mesh every 4 inches and 1 - 4 hidden contacts within the aluminum frame. If the intruder cuts one of the woven wires, or pulls the screen away from the window frame, this triggers the alarm.

Motion Detector

A device usually located within a building, but some are made to be outside, that detects movement within it's range of view. Motion detectors are an inexpensive way to achieve security detection, but come at a greater number of inaccuracies and false alarms than other more stable detectors.  

Security Cable

A vinyl or steel jacketed wire/cable that is used to go through devices (ie; lawnmowers, boat motors, golf carts, gun trigger guards and expensive toys). It does not detect the cherished belonging being moved, just when the cable is cut or removed by the intruder. 

Photoelectric Beam

Better known as Beams or Eyes. They are a device that emits & receives a signal via a pulsed light invisible to the human eye that points in a straight line from point A to B. If this invisible beam of pulsating light is circumvented or blocked, it triggers an alarm. Most users install them as driveway pre- alarms or around barns and fences as a detection loop. These also can be hard wired in or wireless.

Control Panel

This is the main computer hub of an alarm system. It's like the hard-drive of your computer you're using now. Control panels always have a battery back-up. It can have as few as 6 zones (areas) of the protected premise, up to over 100 zones. The average being 6-16 zones. A building can also be divided into partitions (areas) used by different occupancies.  


A numeric keyboard connected to the control panel for the use of arming and disarming the security system. Multiple codes can be pre-programmed for multiple users. Multiple keypads can be installed within the premise for your convenience. 


The noise maker to audibly warn the tenant and intruder that the alarm has detected a breech of the secured area. These can be located inside or outside of the premise.

Cellemetry Communication

Residential Cell Radio 

Commercial Cell Radio

A module that is added to your system that communicates to the central station via the cell phone industry's cell service in your area. This can be accomplished as a ''back-up'' to your land-line or cell only if you do not have a land-line or wish not to use it. You can choose a more secure option and have your system communicate to the central station by both methods at the same  time. There are other services that can be added to this module like; remote arm/disarm from  your smart phone, receive alarm notifications via text messaging and/or email, or control home automation devices.
