New Prestige Ceiling Mount Dual Technology Intruder Detector from Texecom

The Prestige 360 DT has a maximum 9.3m diameter detection pattern, which results in over 65m2 of omni-directional coverage under each detector. The product is suitable for mounting up to 3.6m above the ground, and complies with EN50131-2-4 Grade 2 requirements.

Ceiling mount detectors are of particular benefit when protecting areas with ground-based obstructions such as cubicle partitions, shopping aisles and large furniture, or when traditional mounting sites are impractical. The Prestige 360 DT offers full 360° coverage, and the combined dual sensing technology minimises false alarms by processing the signals from both detection methods to confirm an alarm signal.

RICOCHET Wireless Security Intruder Alarm System from Texecom

Launched earlier in the year, the wireless RICOCHET system has been an amazing success for the company, with customers particularly responding to the enhanced reliability that the product’s professional-grade mesh network system offers. In order to introduce even more users to “the RICOCHET Revolution”, Texecom is currently offering its RICOCHET Complete kit at a specially reduced price.

The kit includes everything necessary to set up a wireless security system: a Premier 48 control panel, LCD proximity tag keypad, 32-zone wireless expander, three wireless quad PIR intruder detectors, a wireless digital shock sensor with wireless magnetic contact, and finally a stylish wireless remote keyfob. Until the 20th December 2010 (while stocks last), Texecom is offering this pack at an introductory offer rate equivalent to receiving the control panel and keypad for free. The offer is available only in the UK, through selected distribution partners including: ADI, Enterprise Security Distribution, Alarm Supplies, ASM, Security Supplies and Medway Security.

The mesh network system that RICOCHET uses as its backbone means that all RICOCHET-enabled devices are connected to each other, resulting in multiple possible data routes for sensor-panel communication. The system can even essentially ‘repair’ itself as soon as a connection signal begins to weaken, re-routing it through another pathway of devices. RICOCHET also features class-leading point-to-point wireless range, which is then further enhanced by each device acting as a signal repeater for a daisy-chain effect. All wireless communications through the system are protected by sophisticated encryption algorithms, ensuring that the system is as secure as it is convenient and reliable.
