Activate your alarm system in few easy steps

Setting up a security system

 

A security system typically consists of magnet sensors on doors and windows, motion sensors in various places in your room and sirens in addition to the controlling gateway. The controlling gateway has three different armed modes; stay, away and night in addition to disarmed. All of the armed modes can enable/disable any sensor to your liking.

 

Alarm armed modes

 

The system has three different armed modes:

  1. Away – This armed mode usually enables all the motion and magnet sensors and is typically used when there is no one at home.
  2. Stay – This armed mode usually enables all the magnet sensors but none of the motion sensors. If used like this the magnet sensors creates a “shell” around your home and is typically used when you are at home during the daytime and want protection against intruders.
  3. Night – This armed mode usually enables all the magnet sensors and selected motion sensors. Typically the motion sensors around your bedroom are left disabled allowing you to move freely in your bedroom and to the bathroom without triggering the alarm. This mode is typically used when you are going to sleep and creates a safe zone around your sleeping area.

Placing sensors and sirens

 

Assuming you want to use your alarm system as described above it is important to place devices in such a way that they give you the protection desired.

The basic assumption when it comes to sensors is that magnet sensors protect you against intrusions through doors and windows that can be opened. For example if someone manages to break your door lock, the alarm will still go off. Motion sensors on the other hand protects you against unwanted motion in any area. If an intruder breaks a window and tries to climb in it is the motion sensor that is triggered.

Magnet sensors – Place magnet sensors on all the windows and doors that can be opened and that are easily accessible either through direct access or short ladders.

Motion sensors – Place motion sensors in all rooms that are easily accessible by breaking windows and/or areas that otherwise not covered by magnet sensors.

Sirens – The sirens are very loud and their placement is not critical sound vise. We recommend trying to place the sirens in areas where they are not easily accessible so it is hard to silence them by intruders.

Keypads – Place keypads where you want quick access to change the armed mode of the system. Typically at your front door or in your bedroom.

Adding devices and setting up the armed modes

 

A security device is scanned and entered into the system similarly to other devices. Please follow this guide on how to scan a new device.

To add a sensor to your security system, you usually need to select usage to “Security” during the configuration. Other devices, such as keypad and sirens, have predetermined logic and will be used in the security system as soon as they are added to the system. For sensors, you get an additional choice where you can select the alarm modes to activate the sensor.

Selecting alarm mode is simply selecting the desired  option from the dashboard alarms widget.

Stop alarms & Suppress alarm page

 

All user roles are sent alarm notifications (providing they are set up). After the alarm reason has been investigated it can be stopped or suppressed(depending on type of alarm)  in the app pop up or by going into manage alarm on the dashboard and pressing stop or suppress alarms page.
