Used in a variety of applications from burglar protection to fire detection, an Ademco alarm panel is the main point of control for every Ademco alarm system. The panel alone will not be adequate to effectively detect fires or sound the alarm when an intrusion occurs. Rather, several satellite components are required including zone sensors, alarm sirens and, with wireless systems, transmitters and a receiver. Ademco produces both hardwired and wireless systems.
Hardwired Alarm Panels
Ademco hardwired alarm panels such as the Vista 20P unit are capable of up to 48-zone support when all expansion zones are added. Up to 4 touchscreen keypads can be installed in a single system, and they are ethernet compatible, enabling the system to maintain an independent line of communication via the Internet. The Vista 20P system will also support 16 output devices including expansion modules and X10 units. An end user is able to track movement with a viewable log that stores up to 100 events depending on the model.
Wireless Alarm Panels
LYNXR wireless alarm panels from Ademco require no lengthy wiring of a system's circuits, relying upon a transmitter and receiver to send and receive information. Supporting up to 40 zones, 8 X10 devices, IP alarm signaling as well as 2-way voice over GSM radio communications, Ademco wireless alarm panels include the keypad, siren, speakerphone and dialer all in one unit.
