Be more aware of what happens in your home
The door/window sensor is a basic building block of home security alarms. But it’s more than that. It’s a tool to monitor activity in your home. Used with Alarm.com’s sensor activity monitoring, this little device opens the door to a world of smart home applications.
With extreme range roughly 4 times that of other sensors on the IQ Panel 2+, PowerG wireless sensors cover distant areas with no need for signal repeaters.
Power when it is needed
PowerG sensors use adaptive transmission power which preserves battery life by only transmitting with the right amount of power.
The fridge was left open
Be alerted when the refrigerator was left open. Or the basement door. Or the medicine cabinet. Get creative.
Trigger home automation
Automatically turn on the lights when a door opens. Or record a video clip. Adjust the thermostat when a door or window was left open.
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.
