Design Example #3

The floor plan (right) shows a typical detached house with integral garage.

In this case it has been decided that only the ground floor is to be alarmed.

The magnetic contact at the front door is wired to the entry/exit zone on the control panel.

The magnetic contact at the rear door is wired to zone 3 on the control panel.

The PIRs are wired to zone 2 on the control panel. They can be wired to individual zones if required, but extra cabling will be required.

The magnetic contact is wired into zone 4.

In operation any of the zones can be separately controlled (i.e. they can be omitted/added as required) For example during the night, just the two magnetic contacts can be used so that the family dog can roam the ground floor. During the day or on holidays, the whole of the alarm can be used.

The Personal Attack Button (PAB) is wired into a dedicated zone.
