Impact detector or seismic detector?
Impact detector or seismic detector?

Inertial detectors are devices that allow us to immediately warn of a possible intrusion. There are different types for multiple applications. However, which one to install? The new European standard UNE-EN 5011-2-8 specifies certain requirements and, thanks to this, we can know when to choose an impact detector or a seismic detector.   At By Demes, the leading distributor of intrusion products in Spain, we will explain what they are, when to use them and we will introduce the novelties from Alarmtech manufacturer, a world specialist in the manufacture of this type of device. What is an impact detector? An impact detector (also known as a vibration sensor or impact sensor) is an inertial magnetic detector that allows to perceive an attack on a physical barrier, such as a door or a window. Alarmtech Grade 3 DEM-716 (CD 475) Shock Detector The Alarmtech DEM-716 (CD 475) impact detector performs accurate and reliable monitoring against attacks by power tools and protects against attacks from cutting tools, such as the saber saw. The detection radius is up to 3 meters, shows a high resistance to false alarms and has the EN50131 Grade 3 certificate. It is ideal for protecting very high risk spaces. It can be installed on windows or doors, but also on a concrete wall if we have the DEM-683 (MP 500) installation plate from Alarmtech. What is a seismic detector? The seismic detector (or seismic sensor) does not have a European standard. However, although it performs a very similar function to impact detectors, this type of device captures vibrations and sound oscillations, being appropriate for drilling attacks (thermal lances). Some examples may be safes, vaults or ATMs. Alarmtech Grade 3 DEM-682 (VD 500) Seismic Detector The DEM-682 (VD 500) seismic detector from Alarmtech is a reliable and robust solution against attacks from explosives, thermal tools and mechanical tools such as circular saws, emery boards or diamond bits. It is approved in banking and by different manufacturers of ATMs, protecting safes, gunsmiths, metal filing cabinets, ATMs or concrete walls. It is suitable for Grade 3 installations. It is a detector with high immunity to environmental disturbances, thanks to the possibility of being able to configure its sensitivity and type of object through DIP switches. It must be installed firmly, avoiding joints in the material. As in the previous case, to install on concrete and brick walls it is advisable to have the DEM-683 (MP 500) installation plate from Alarmtech. The Alarmtech DEM-680 (WH 400) enclosure can also be used to maintain proper humidity. .

VESTA by Climax Anti Squat Alarm
VESTA by Climax Anti Squat Alarm

Installing a “squat alarm” has become a priority for homeowners. Although an occupancy cannot always be prevented, an effective alarm system greatly simplifies the process of evicting squatters, which can otherwise drag on for years and lead to significant financial losses for homeowners. By Demes, the leading distributor of security products in Europe, has the VESTA by Climax Battery Operated Alarm, the best anti squat alarm on the market. An effective and reliable solution, 100% standalone. What is a squat alarm? It is important to note that any alarm system should work effectively to detect and prevent theft, break-in or occupation. However, we call “squatter alarms” all those systems that are specially designed against this type of crime and that also effectively resist the various sabotage attempts that criminals often carry out. For greater effectiveness, it is important that the alarm is Grade 2 and complies with all the safety standards set by the European Union. In addition, it is essential that updates and controls are carried out on a regular basis, thus guaranteeing the complete security of the protected property.. How does the battery operated alarm prevent an occupancy? The VESTA by Climax battery-operated alarm stands out for being quick to install and easy to configure. Thanks to this, we guarantee a safe home the same day the technician visits the home. At the user level, it’s important to know that it acts as follows: The battery-powered control panel and the most suitable F1 devices are installed. The professional will choose those devices that help to better protect the property: keyboards, sirens, smoke sensors, PIR detectors, PIRCAMS, temperature sensors, door contacts, perimeter detectors, vibration sensors, etc. Test transmissions are carried out through the control unit every 6 hours, to guarantee that the alarm works correctly, without the need for electricity or internet connection via router As soon as the system is armed, it is possible to detect any type of intrusion, sending notifications and pictures immediately to the user and the security installer. At the same time, the control unit sounds the built-in siren, to scare away potential intruders. At that same time, an immediate notice is generated to the ARC in charge of verifying any possible incident at home through the security cameras. In case of intrusion confirmation, a notice is generated to the police, who will go to the home to evict the squatters. VESTA by Climax Anti Squat alarm system VESTA by Climax's innovative battery-operated power panel has a Grade 2 Certificate, medium risk, ideal for second homes, country houses, vacant homes or buildings under construction. Likewise, it can also be installed in mobile second homes, such as yachts or motorhomes. It is especially effective thanks to the great communication flexibility (2G or 4G LTE) that allows the alarm communication fluently, even in remote locations. As we already know, it does not require external power or internet connection via router. Panel can be managed through a remote control via the app. Another important aspect of the alarm is that it has up to 50 radio channels, allowing a range of 2 km between the control panel and the devices. In addition to the more than 50 devices that we can use to protect the home, the VESTA by Climax battery-operated alarm supports the possibility of incorporating smoke detectors, water sensors and temperature sensors, for complete protection against fire damage and leaks of water 24 hours. By Demes offers two different battery operated panels, which differ mainly by the type of communication to be used: VESTA-067 (BOGP-3-2G) battery-powered cellular alarm system with 2G communication VESTA-068 (BOGP-3-4G) battery-powered cellular alarm system with 4G communication For more information, fill out our contact form and our sales representatives will advise you in detail about our innovative Anti Squat panels. 5 frequently asked questions about occupation with alarm We will review some of the most common doubts that arise among people who consider the installation of an anti squat alarm: 1. What type of housing do squatters choose? Although any home is susceptible to being occupied, the truth is that, according to statistics, there are some with greater risk. Bank homes, second homes, empty houses, flats under construction and homes without alarm stand out among others. 2.What are the best devices for an Anti Squat alarm? The VESTA by Climax battery-operated alarm is compatible with more than 50 high-quality devices and, although they must be chosen based on the home and its characteristics, the most important are usually: Panel: it is the main means of communication with the ARC, so it is essential that it has good communication, even in places with low connectivity. PIRCAMS: these devices allow to detect any movement effectively, in addition, they have a camera that allows to visualize the possible intrusion. Contacts: they cause an alarm when a door or window is opened, thus, we receive an immediate alert when someone has forced the door. Perimeter detectors: ideal for houses with gardens or land, since they allow detecting and alerting the intruder before even approaching the door. 3. Can a home with an alarm be squatted? Some criminals have learned how to occupy a house with an alarm, however, we are talking about alarms with outdated firmware, with technical problems and especially those that are easy to inhibit. In the case of the VESTA by Climax battery-operated alarm, even if a person manages to enter a home, the alarm will respond quickly and effectively, registering the moment of entry and considering it a theft or burglary. It should be noted that when we speak of a home with an alarm, that is, of our habitual residence, the eviction occurs immediately, especially when we can provide evidence of the intrusion, such as an alarm activation, pictures and videos. However, second homes are more vulnerable, hence the importance of protecting them with a reliable system that allows us to detect the presence of an intruder instantly, and thanks to this a warning can be generated to the police, thus avoiding a definitive occupation. 4. What are the benefits of houses with alarm systems Initially, with the alarm activated and evidence of the intrusion, the police must vacate the house in less than 48 hours. Therefore, having an effective security system prevents the long and costly judicial procedure that involves occupying a home without alarm, which can take years. 5. How much does the VESTA by Climax Anti Squat alarm cost? It is true that price plays a fundamental role when deciding on a certain product, however, from By Demes we advise always betting on Grade 2 alarms that have the essential technical specifications to guarantee maximum connectivity and effectiveness against squatters.
