Home Alarm Accessories

Modern offer a range of upgrades for your alarm and security system.

Additional Code Pads

#

All of our security systems come with one code pad as standard. However, if you utilise several entry points in your home, such as the back door, garage entry and front door additional code pads can be added for convenience and peace of mind by monitoring the premises or multiple entry points of the home.

Sensors

All Modern Streamline Security Systems come standard with 2 sensors. However, Modern does supply a range of additional sensors for your convenience; from simple PIR sensors to more technologically advanced pet sensors. Our qualified security consultants can provide you with the solution to suit all your needs & requirements.


Alarm System Key Ring Remote

All Modern Streamline Security Systems can have a remote control fitted for the convenience of arming or disarming. These are small enough to be fitted to your key ring. Each remote has the ability to trip a panic alarm in the event of an emergency. Your Modern technician can also arrange for the opening & closing of the garage door from the very same remote, leaving the often cumbersome door openers as a spare.

In the event that one of these remotes is lost, a service call can be arranged to have the remote deleted from the system to render it useless & to avoid compromising the security of the premises, the customer can arrange for a replacement remote from the same call.

Emergency Panic Button

All Modern alarm code pads have a panic button built in. However for that added peace of mind, we can install additional panic buttons in discrete places which can be triggered in the event of a break in. These can help in notifying others of would be intruders or that you may require some other form of assistance.

External Strobe & Siren

#

Modern are able to supply you with an external siren to create instant awareness and act as a deterrent to show that your home is secure. In the event of a trigger the alarm will sound and cancel after a given time. The blue light will continue to emit light to bring to attention that the alarm has been triggered since arming. The external siren can also be set up so you can get an audible response when you have armed the alarm, just like a car alarm.


Internal Siren

The “internal screamer” comes standard with every Modern hardwired alarm system. Designed to emit a high frequency alert at the trigger of an alarm within the home. Extra internal screamers can be added to your system if you so wish, simply ask our qualified consultants for more information.

Look C Video Intercom

#

Never be surprised by visitors again with the Modern Look C Video Intercom. The Look C is a video intercom system which allows you to see and communicate with anyone at your door, from a safe distance, providing you with added security. There is no need to turn on your porch light at night, the Modern Look C has an in built infra-red illumination for night time.

The Look C is made from the highest quality components. You can screen your house callers without even picking up the receiver as the monitor operates as soon as the doorbell is pressed. The Look C video intercom perfectly complements the Modern Streamline Security System.

Personal Attack Alarms

Personal attack alarms are a great way to alert people of problems in a unique portable audible siren. These alarms are easy to carry around discretely and in the event of an emergency you can press the button to set off the loud siren.

Window & Door Reed Switches

A reed switch is designed purely to protect the perimeter of your home by providing a security mechanism for doors and windows. Once doors and windows are closed, the switches create a connection, and once broken will sound the alarm. Reed switches are also often used in conjunction with PIR's to provide a reminder when arming the alarm that you may have left some windows or doors open.

There are 3 common types of reed switches:

  1. Concealed Reed Switch Flush Mount – generally used for timber doors & doorframes, this type of switch cannot be seen easily after installation.
  2. Surface Mount Reed Switch used mostly on windows and sliding doors, or where concealed reeds cannot be used. This type is mounted on the surface of the window or door.
  3. Magnet Mounts – Mounted to a door, sectional, roller or tilt-a-door type. Switch mounted to floor or premises. Heavy duty with armoured cable. Can easily withstand any vehicle driving or standing on it.

Home Alarm Tips

Home alarms and security systems are unfortunate necessity in today's world; household break-ins and burglaries are among the most common crimes committed in the country. Figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (Crime and Safety Survey 4509.0) show that more that there are over 1000 break-ins or attempted break-ins occurring around the country each day.

A home alarm is one of the most effective means of protecting you, your home and your belongings. Home alarms work to:

  • Alert the authorities
  • Notify you of potential threats to you and your property
  • Gain the attention of neighbours and anyone nearby
  • Scare criminals away before they have a chance to steal from or damage your property

Here are a few home alarm tips to help you choose the right security system for your property:

  • Identify your most valuable possessions and where they are kept in the house; these are the most important areas to protect.
  • Assess the points of entry to your house and plan the best locations for sensors.
  • The best alarm systems are those that combine perimeter and interior devices. Consider window and door reed switches that, when armed, sound on opening to protect the perimeter of your home. When used in conjunction with passive infrared sensors, reed switches can help remind you that you may have left windows or doors open.
  • Consider whether you need a video intercom for extra security from unwanted visitors while you are at home.
