This is the building block of your home alarm system. As shown in this photo, it includes the Master Alarm, one wireless detection unit motion sensor, and two key chain remotes to activate the system. Not shown but also included are: pet shield to allow pets to walk below the motion sensor scanning area, window decals to alert intruders.
Unlike traditional alarm monitoring systems, LaserShield works with traditional land lines, or the GSM Cellular Network. LaserShield plugs into your existing telephone jack. If you do not have a phone line, add the Laser Shield Cyclone Adapter which connects to the GSM cellular network.
The 24-hour panic button remains active whether the system is armed or disarmed. Pressing the panic button at any time will immediately activate the siren and initiate a call to the 24 X 7 Rapid Response Monitoring Service through your existing phone line. The Keychain Remote also includes a panic feature by pressing both buttons simultaneously.
When an alarm condition exists the LaserShield Master Alarm Unit sounds a 105-decibel siren. Sirens are an active and very important line of defense against burglary. The majority of intruders leave immediately when a siren is activated.
Instant Learn Feature
LaserShield systems are expandable. Additional Wireless Detection Units or Key Chain Remotes can be learned into your system in less than 60 seconds. Our proprietary user interface eliminates the need for programming, complex manuals, allowing an entire system to be setup or expanded in minutes.
LaserShield receives its power from a standard wall outlet via a small low voltage transformer.
Each LaserShield Home Alarm device is equipped with a backup battery, used in the event of lost power. The Master Alarm Unit battery is rechargeable and the Master Alarm Unit will notify your monitoring service if the battery charge becomes low. Other devices such as Wireless Detection Units and Keychain remotes report their battery condition to the Master Alarm Unit, which will notify you if a battery needs to be replaced.
Placement of unit
Each LaserShield Wireless Detection Unit is equipped with a state-of-the-art passive infrared detection system. The unit's view of detection spans out from the front of the unit in a 110-degree pattern ranging over 35 feet. Delivering approximately 1100 square feet of detection. The LaserShield motion sensors samples the ambient room temperature and will detect an intruder's body heat moving across its detection zones.
A unique Pet Shield instantly snaps into place on the front of the LaserShield motion detector on the Wireless Detection Unit. The Pet Shield blocks portions of the motion sensor so your pet is less likely to trigger an alarm.
Light and sound effects
LaserShield will verbally annunciate when it is placed in an armed or disarmed condition. The Master Alarm Unit counts down the number of seconds left when arming as a reminder of the 60-second exit delay. The Master Alarm Unit will also beep for 20 seconds upon re-entering as a reminder to disarm the system.
The LaserShield Master Alarm Unit includes extensive self-diagnostics. The Master Alarm Unit will report any abnormal condition such as loss of power, telephone connection disconnected, or low back-up battery.
User Call Feature
The LaserShield Master Alarm Unit has a special "phone in" feature. Using a secret PIN number our customers can telephone their alarm system from a remote location using a telephone or cellular phone. This feature allows them to check system status, remote arm, remote disarm, or even activate a hidden microphone to listen in on babysitters, children, or pets.
The Master Alarm Unit will contact the Rapid Response Monitoring Service to report the following conditions- alarm, panic, low battery, and cancel. Under normal conditions Laser Shield reports the fastest response time in the alarm industry, initiating a return phone call approximately 30 seconds after receiving an alarm signal.
