WinSat Security Systems
he level of security safety depends on the right choice, quality and installation of the system’s hardware. In order to achieve the highest potential of this approach in your space, it would be helpful to understand on your behalf how the security systems work, so in collaboration with our skilled technician, you will be able to choose the system that best suits your needs. Next, we share some basic and important info on how these systems work. A security system consists of:
This is the brain that processes the information from the “Sensors” giving corresponding commands to the “Results” (Sirens, Signal Receiving Center, etc.). A keyboard is also connected to it through which the owner, and other system users, could turn the system on and off with a different code each one. It also has a rechargeable battery for autonomy in case of power failure.
SENSORS | RADAR
They perceive undesirable presences in space. The key types of sensors are, for indoor use:
- Motion detectors for indoor use. They perceive the movement of a body that emits heat (in fact, infrared motion detectors perceive changes in temperature in space) at 10 to 20 meters of unified space, and at an angle of 10 to 110 degrees (depending on the type of detector). There are also detectors of double microwave technology that gives us more stable detection results detecting the mass
- Glass breaking detectors. They perceive the intense sound of a breaking glass up to 10 meters away in a unified space.
- Magnetic contacts. They perceive the opening of the door or the window, in which they are installed.
- Smoke detectors. They perceive the presence of smoke in the room and help in the timely treatment, avoiding the spread of the fire, until the people in charge of the area arrive.
For external use
- Outdoor motion detectors (RADAR). They work like internal detectors. Τhey do not perceive small animals and they are impermeable.
- Photoelectric beams (BEAMS) consist of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter sends 2 or 4 infrared fine beams to the receiver and if they are interrupted by an obstacle, they give an alarm command. They are installed around the buildings and constitute the first shield of a space.
The sirens are intended to prevent burglars by making the existence of security of the space obvious, and to panic the burglars. They are divided into Simple Sirens that are placed indoors and in Autonomous Sirens that have their own battery and do not become inactive when a burglar cuts the power cord from the electric distribution board.
COMMUNICATION OF SECURITY SYSTEM
Sending signals via a simple telephone line to the central receiving station or directly to the owner’s telephones.
The security system via the existing simple landline sends signals to the receiving center. The system records any information for the zone in a space where it has been activated. Then, on a case-by-case basis, it contacts the phone numbers which it estimates as necessary, and informs the owner about the incident, as well. The list of phone numbers-contacts is mentioned in the relevant contract (eg owner, officers, police, fire brigade, private guard, etc.).
More, the center can also monitor:
- Power failure and restoring of electricity in the building.
- The dropping of system’s rechargeable battery.
- When a business office is opened and closed by staff and by whom (if each person uses a separate personal code).
Sending signals through a mobile telephony system (GSM-GPRS) to the central station or directly to the owner’s telephone.
- It can also work without a landline.
- It is automatically activated when someone cuts the phone line or there is a damage in the fixed line network.
- The GSM device provides a better communication security from the simple telephone land line and is now required to be installed in all security systems and especially in high-risk areas.
