Home Alarm System Components
Control Panel – The Hub of a Security System
The control panel is the hub of a security system. Consisting of an electronic circuit board, communication dialer, AC power transformer and 12V backup battery, this unit is installed in a secure location within your home.
The type of control panel determines how many and what types of devices can be tied into your security system. The top selling models at Telsco are FA148 and the FA168. Both allow for a combination of hardwired and wireless security components to be installed throughout your home. Your Telsco security consultant will assist in determining the right choice for your home alarm system.
Keypad – Security Access and Activation
The keypad gives you access to your security system, allowing you to activate/deactivate the system and view alarms and trouble conditions. Typically, the keypad is installed at the main door to your home. We also recommend an additional unit in the master bedroom, which provides control during the night.
The FA270, FA570 and the tuxedo touchscreen are our most popular choices. They all use plain English—no confusing symbols or blinking lights. A backlight provides for ease of use in the dark.
Remote Control – Protection from Outside Your Home
A security system remote control is called a key fob. This wireless device, similar to a garage door opener, can be used to turn your home alarm system on and off from outside the house.
Wireless Devices – Popular & Convenient Security Technology
The option of adding wireless devices to your First Alert security system allows us to maximize your security protection without changing the aesthetic appeal of your decor. Devices can also be mounted in locations where running a wire may not be possible. We offer a variety of dependable wireless motion detectors, contacts, glassbreak and smoke detectors to complement your system.
