- GLASS BREAK DETECTORS
When you consider that breaking a window is the most common way an intruder would gain access to your home or business, installing an Acuity glassbreak detector isn't a luxury it's an absolute necessity. Acuity is nothing less than the most advanced glassbreak detector available today. It incorporates DYNAMIC SOUND ANALYSIS - a detection system so innovative, it's recognized by two patents pending.* The result? Greater sensitivity, faster response and the highest immunity to the sounds that can cause other detectors to false alarm. Equally important, Acuity offers all this performance and peace-of-mind, while also being remarkably small, beautifully designed and virtually service free. It's the perfect combination advanced design, exceptional performance and reliable protection for many years to come.
Acuity is designed to provide the essential protection you need without interfering with your lifestyle or decor. Acuity is not only beautifully designed and remarkably small, it features a sophisticated microphone system designed to hear glass breakage up to 25 feet away. So just one Acuity glassbreak detector may be all you need.
Acuity's advanced sound analysis technology can detect all of the common types of breaking glass with ease plate, laminated, wired or tempered. In addition to glass type, it also accommodates changes in pane size, glass thickness and room acoustics. For ease of installation and protection of all types of framed glass, Acuity is the perfect glassbreak detector.
Ready When Needed
Ultimately, a glassbreak detector is limited by how well it hears all sounds and by how smart it is in reacting to just the one sound that poses a threat to your security. On both counts, nothing comes close to Acuity's patented DYNAMIC SOUND ANALYSIS. The product of years of research and development effort, Dynamic Sound Analysis starts with an advanced microphone system able to capture sound far beyond the range of human hearing, at low volume and up to 25 ft away. Once captured, sound is digitally analyzed for the unique signature of breaking glass in remarkable detail. In a fraction of a second, Acuity delivers exceptional detection performance when you need it the most.
... And Only When Needed
Acuity's patented DYNAMIC SOUND ANALYSIS also sets a new standard for immunity to false alarms caused by sounds that can easily confuse other detectors. Acuity doesn't look for a few sound characteristics that "sound like" broken glass, it is designed to respond only to an exact match. Rattling car keys, a ringing telephone or a chirping bird - no problem. Acuity is designed to provide the highest immunity to false alarms without lowering the standard for exceptional detection performance.
- MOTION DETECTORS
The reliability and performance of your security system can be greatly enhanced or hampered by your choice of motion detector. The key point to consider is this: if the alarm sounds on your system, has an intruder entered... or is it a false alarm? It's not something you want to be in doubt about, which is why Bravo brand detectors have risen to become the overwhelming choice of home and business owners worldwide. Nothing can match a Bravo for its sensitivity, accuracy and built-in immunity to false alarms. Even lightning, static shocks and power surges are no match for Bravo's superior design. Simply put, Bravo is built to provide the highest immunity to false alarms possible... without compromising effectiveness (known as catch) in any way. By ensuring significantly higher levels of accuracy and stability under all environmental and climatic conditions, Bravo motion detectors offer precisely the level of security you're looking for. And to make extra sure, every individual unit is functionally tested before leaving the factory. By recommending Bravo, we demonstrate our genuine concern for your safety and security. By choosing Bravo, you are joining hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers who wouldn't settle for anything less.
Because no security system can outperform the detector that alerts it, you need Bravo motion detectors for complete peace of mind. Bravo's astounding accuracy comes from its ability to analyse each movement, adjust automatically for "fast/slow" and "near/distant" motion, and respond within a fraction of a second.
Regardless of temperature changes - which tends to increase or decrease a detector's sensitivity - Bravo ensures uniform security from 32F (0C) to 122F (50). Automatic temperature compensation maintains maximum catch ... without any increase in risk of false alarms.
False Alarm Immunity
Bravo works just as precisely to prevent false alarms as it does to catch an intruder. With smarter microprocessors, stronger light filters, unique motion analysis and carefully positioned suppressors, Bravo assures outstanding protection against all false alarm sources ... lightning, power surges, static, radio interference, car headlights, fluorescent lights, insects and dust.
Because of its incomparable reputation for accuracy, immunity and reliability, Bravo has rapidly become one of the most widely used motion detectors in the world. It has proven itself in all types of environments - private homes, office buildings, commercial, institutional and industrial complexes - and under all climatic conditions.
- SMOKE DETECTORS
Range of Application
With its advanced 90 photoelectric detection pattern, Meridian offers superior detection of smoldering or rapid growth fires under a broad range of applications and changing environmental conditions.
In addition to its superior ability to detect smoke, Meridian offers you yet another critical safeguard - it is available with a built-in sensor designed to detect the presence of heat caused by a fire that starts and develops very rapidly.
With a quick glance at the LED indicator located at the top of your Meridian unit, you can see in an instant if the smoke detector is 'on' or its alarm/trouble/normal status.
Meridian's exclusive detection pattern smoke chamber design cannot be found in just any ordinary smoke detector. Meridian's design offers greater sensitivity to smoke and at the same time, superior immunity to dust, insects and other environmental factors - conditions that may leave a lesser quality smoke detector impaired and unable to alert you.
Every 40 seconds, Meridian does an automatic self-test. So when your unit is low on power or when its sensitivity to smoke has fallen, it will let you know - right away. And whenever you need to check the smoke detector yourself, you can conduct a manual test by simply pushing the button at the top of the unit.
- DOOR WINDOWS CONTACTS
Otherwise known as perimeter protection devices, these detectors provide immediate alarm should an intruder force a window or door. They should be applied to all accessible means of entry.
- INDOOR SIRENS
With an indoor siren, your family will be immediately alerted to potential danger... and intruders will know they have been detected. Indoor sirens also alert you when you have performed an incorrect programming sequence and accidentally tripped the alarm system.
