Peace of mind protection, without the wires
Whether it’s a single alarm transmitter or hundreds of security sensors across an entire site, the Inovonics range of wireless motion detectors, universal transmitters, environmental sensors, and mobile duress devices, integrate seamlessly with your Protege WX or Protege GX system to increase safety and security.
The integration with Inovonics takes you beyond the realm of traditional access control and intrusion detection to effectively secure your assets and protect your people without the wires. Wireless detection devices enable you to quickly detect unauthorized entry or activity within a secure area, identifying when doors and windows are opened, when an area is breached by an intruder, and when glass is broken in a window, door, or display case. Mobile duress devices provide an additional layer of protection, offering the perfect solution for schools, hospitals, and even commercial buildings where the protection of people is a main focus.
Hardwired solutions often go hand in hand with difficult, or near impossible deployments. The Inovonics wireless system almost completely removes the need for long cable runs out to each individual detector, dramatically reducing labor and material costs. Wireless solutions not only ensure quick and simple installations, the Inovonics advanced repeater network also allows you to scale your intrusion detection system as your requirements change by easily adding additional devices to the network.
How it works
Inovonics devices communicate with Protege controllers via the Inovonics Wireless Receiver Module. This module translates incoming Inovonics signals so that they are understood by Protege controllers. The receiver is configured via a web interface and registers in Protege as a reader expander. You can connect up to 255 Inovonics devices to a single receiver, including detectors and remotes. Each wireless device can be added to Protege and assigned trouble inputs. Remotes can be assigned to users to control Protege doors.
Using the inputs associated with the devices, the system triggers alarms for motion detection, duress, and door or window breaches. To extend the reach of the network, add Inovonics repeaters.
The 900 MHz band enables longer transmission ranges; wavelengths travel a greater distance and better penetrate typical building construction – allowing for simplified system design. And since 900 MHz operates on a different frequency from Wi-Fi, it won’t burden existing IT infrastructure.
- Simplifies installation by utilizing wireless technology
- Extends the reach of intrusion detection to areas where running wires is difficult or expensive
- Monitors the state of Inovonics devices - including low battery levels - using Protege trouble inputs
- Future proofs your system by enabling you to easily add additional devices following the initial installation
