The Universal GSM module is easy to connect (install) with your HomeGuard or other PSTN alarm panels, by inserting a telephone wire in both analogue inputs. The GSM module enables the control panel to communicate via cellular networks. The modem translates the analogue signals and converts them into a GSM signal. A SIM card (prepaid or subscription from any provider) has to be placed inside the GSM module. The GSM module creates a two-way communication. This enables your security system to send an alarm alert to your mobile phone in cause of an emergency, and makes it possible to monitor and control your security system remotely. This model is supplied with an E-plug.
GSM-350 is a cellular communication module that connects some of the PowerMax® systems to the alarm central station. The module can report via GPRS* data channel and/or through the GSM network. This enables a high-speed and highly-reliable communication channel in cases of line failure or tampering with the standard telephony lines.
In addition, it supports remote operation and event reporting via SMS. For any property without land-based telephone lines, the GSM-350 is a must-have. It extends the control panel functionality to any site, such as homes with VoIP-based telephony, anchored boats and isolated vacation houses.
The module is internal and fits in the PowerMax system, so no additional external elements are needed. The integrity of the backup communication channel is ensured through continuous monitoring.
Advanced Internet-based Home Control Solution for PowerMaxPro
Visonic’s PowerLink is the most comprehensive Internet-based solution for advanced home security and control. It enables alarm central stations, security service providers and homeowners to leverage the full power of Internet connectivity to take their home security, safety and automation to the next level.
At the most basic, PowerLink offers a plug and play broadband IP event notification solution. And, with connection to up to 14 cameras placed around the premises, PowerLink can expand to an IP-based video alarm verification solution offering smart recording and fast forwarding of events to the alarm central station.
IP-based Event Notifications
With more and more homeowners moving to VoIP communications, leaving behind PSTN lines, broadband becomes an ideal method for cost-free alarm event notifications delivery to central stations. Visonic's PowerLink Internet-based home control and surveillance system features built-in IP-based event notification capabilities. By simply plugging the PowerLink system into a free port on the home router, the alarm system is connected to the IP receiver at the central station – with no need to configure the system or the router. This provides a true plug and play experience for both the security installer and alarm central station. In addition, PowerLink provides a rapid supervision mechanism, enabling the central station to enjoy commercial-grade line supervision to all connected home security systems at zero cost.
Utilizing PowerLink as an IP-based event notification solution requires that Visonic's IPMP (IP Management Platform) be implemented as an IP receiver at the central station.
Image Alarm Verification the Right Way
As PowerLink is fully integrated with the PowerMax® home security system, it has the ability to send alarm time images based on real motion detection, which significantly reduces the cost to service providers and hassle to homeowners of false alarms.
The system enables central stations to receive image alarm verification information within seconds of the alarm time compared to the several minutes it takes with GPRS or PSTN-based alarm verification solutions. Moreover, alarm time images can be forwarded to the homeowner's email or mobile phone for immediate view and verification. By the time the security service provider calls, the homeowner already knows if the person that activated the alarm is authorized to be there or is an intruder. This means that the police or a central station guard is sent to the premises only when truly necessary.
Enhanced Consumer Web Services
PowerLink is not only a broadband event notification solution but a full-grade service platform that enables service providers to offer enhanced, web-based security and surveillance services to their customers. Homeowners can login to the secure PowerLink web portal, accessible from all standard PC and mobile phone browsers, and via an easy-to-use interface control their home security system, view its status, control X-10 compliant home devices and view live and alarm time recorded video from wireless and wired IP cameras. In addition, homeowners can set up the system to notify them by email or mobile phone text message whenever security, home devices or camera events occur.
Total Control PowerLink is offered with the Visonic IPMP - IP Management Platform. The IPMP serves as an IP receiver in alarm central stations as well as a full grade service platform for consumer web services. By implementing the IPMP, service providers gain full control over the PowerLink service, including account and service management, billing, messaging, and much more.
MCR-308 is a superheterodyne receiver designed to convert a standard hard-wired control panel into a reliable fully supervised wireless system. It provides a cost-effective opportunity to realize all the benefits of Visonic wireless systems and devices.
MCR-308 is compatible with all Visonic PowerCode™ and CodeSecure™ devices – including hand-held and portable units, window/door transmitters and a variety of detectors and other devices. The MCR-308 has 4 zones, each accommodating up to 4 transmitter devices. It is easily expanded using up to three MCX-8 zone expanders, for a total of 28 zones and 112 wireless devices in a single system. Dry contact outputs can be provided, using the RL-8 relay module that converts 8 open collector outputs to dry contact outputs.
MCR-308 is designed for wireless alarm, emergency and arm/disarm applications as well as for remote control applications. It is easy to install and program utilizing a unique "Easy Learn" technique for transmitter enrolment. It provides all the features that professionals require, including four additional outputs for low battery reporting, tamper protection, RF signal jamming and transmitter inactivity indication.
When used with CodeSecure devices, the MCR-308 implements a rolling code encryption algorithm to prevent "code grabbing" by potential intruders trying to defeat the security system.
This highly reliable and versatile receiver is available in several optional frequencies in compliance with European, U.S. and other international standards, and is approved for use by local authorities in most countries.
MCX-610 extends the communication range between the PowerMax® systems and other PowerCode™ transmitter, including one-way and two-way keyfobs*, remote commander and PowerCode motion detectors. It receives alarm, status and control messages from the wireless devices, and sends these messages to the control panel.
For maximum security, the MCX-610 repeater uses a unique, factory programmed, randomly selected 24-bit digital alarm ID code during each transmission. This code is selected from 16 million possible code combinations and is therefore unique and virtually impossible to accidentally reproduce.
Other important benefits of the MCX-610 include the unique anti-collision transmission sequence, which ensures accurate reception of simultaneous signals from multiple transmitters. The fully supervised repeater issues a test report on an hourly basis, indicating faults such as power failure, low battery charge and tampering.
