Tag Reader

by msecadm4921

Suitable for burglar alarm control panels in the homes of elderly and infirm people is the SIMPLE SET, reports ADE.

This is a proximity tag reader that can be fitted into Optima and Accenta G3 panels, so enabling users to set and unset the control panel by presenting a transponder tag in the shape of a keyfob close to the reader. The product allows the user to operate the system without having to use the keypad, which for many, such as the elderly, is not an ideal means of setting and unsetting panels, the makers report. A proportion of false alarms are due to user errors when keying in security codes. The transponder reader unit offers a single set and unset action in line with ACPO requirements for reducing false alarms, the manufacturers say. The product can be retro-fitted.
