Detect intrusions with Surety

If you’re going to use a security alarm, choose a professional grade sensor with secure wireless communication so you can be confident it will do it’s job.

Why should I use PowerG sensors?

The majority of security systems are not as secure as they could be. With technology advancing rapidly, it’s becoming more and more likely that someone who wants to compromise your security system can do so without much effort or expense.

PowerG sensors use 128 bit AES encryption to send signals in a coded form that can only be understood by the alarm system they are connected to. This ensures that only your system can access the content of the message, keeping your sensor activity data safe and practically eliminating your system’s exposure to spoofing and replay attacks.

On top of powerful encryption, PowerG sensors use spread spectrum frequency hopping rf for the most secure wireless sensors available.

Why isn’t my sensor working?
Did you install the larger sensor portion in a metal door? If so that may dampen rf signals. If your door is metal, install the sensor in the frame and magnet in the door.
