How It Works: LaserShield® Wireless Home Alarm Security Systems

LaserShield is the world's first "plug-and go" professional grade instant home alarm security system.  In just minutes, you can protect your home or office with a professional alarm security system including 24/7 monitoring, all without tools or any complex installation.


What makes LaserShield different is our wireless technology (eliminating the need for complex installation or any tools) and the "instant learn" feature which lets the system determine how many motion sensor and keychain remotes you want to use. 

Laser Shield Home AlarmYou turn the system on and off via the wireless keychain remote.  It's just like locking or unlocking your car.  The Master Alarm Unit lets you know when the system is on or off.

The alarm is triggered when an intruder breaks the infrared beam from the Wireless Detection Unit motion sensor.  Each unit can cover up to 1,100 square feet.  A unique Pet Shield allows you to modify the range of the infrared sensor to allow pets to pass underneath the beam without triggering the alarm.

Once activated, the Master Alarm Unit emits an ear piercing 105 decibel alarm for five minutes.   If you have activated monitoring (optional, but recommended starting at $24.95 a month) the Master Alarm unit immediately calls our Rapid Response Monitoring center.  A call will be placed to a phone you have specified (cell phone, home phone, neighbor, apartment manager, or other) to verify if it's a false alarm.  If no answer, Rapid Response immediately notifies authorities to dispatch police to the scene.

If power is lost, each component has a 12 hour battery back up to ensure the system is available until power is restored.

  • When you receive your LaserShield Wireless Home Alarm Starter Kit or Bundle Pak, begin by unpacking the system and plugging in the Master Alarm Unit, and the Wireless Detection Unit Motion Sensor.  Connect the Sparrow or Cyclone units to the Master Alarm Unit if you have ordered those bundle paks.  No tools or wires are required to install your system. 
  • Turn all the units on and allow the "Instant Learn" feature to determine your configuration.
  • Place the wireless detection units in areas where intruders will break the beam and set off the alarm.  If you have pets, install the pet shields and test to make sure they can walk under the beam with out triggering the alarm.
  • Connect the Master Alarm Unit to your phone line and call Rapid Response to activate your home alarm monitoring.  Within minutes you will be active and secure with reliable, professional 24/7 home alarm monitoring.

Once the alarm is triggered, the Master Alarm Unit will contact the Rapid Response Monitoring Service to report the following conditions: Alarm, Panic, Low Battery, and Cancel.
