Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of our most common questions, if you can’t find the answer your looking for below please contact us and we’ll endeavour to answer
your question.

 Q: DOES IT HAVE TO BE LINE OF SIGHT?

A: No. Our alarms throw a very strong signal that will transmit up to 1km or more in the right conditions, however if there are trees or buildings between the sensor and the receiver you may see a drop in signal range. The only way to confirm if this will work for you is to try our 30 day trial.

Q: CAN ANTENNAS BE ADDED TO THE SYSTEM TO EXTEND THE RANGE?

A: Yes. Some of our alarms can be altered for an external antenna to be added by us, for an additional cost. However in some cases this may not increase the range depending on your site.

Q: HAVE ALARMS BEEN USED FOR BOTH DOMESTIC AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS?

A: Yes. Our alarms have been very successful in helping to protect commercial warehouses and remote entries, also domestic buildings which house valuable items i.e. motor cycle, boat, tools etc. In addition Alarm Australia also offers extra piece of mind for when you are at home, by being alerted to friend of foe before they are on your door step.

Q: CAN ALARMS ACTIVATE OTHER DEVICES E.G LIGHTS?

A: Yes, the wireless receiver can be hard wired through a relay to activate almost any electrical device including existing security lighting and strobes. This is especially invaluable if you are not home and an intruder enters your front gate, lights can be activated around your home immediately. If you are only relying on security lighting, the intruder has made their way right to your front door before being deterred.

Q: WILL ALARMS INTERFERE WITH OTHER EQUIPMENT USING WIRELESS SIGNALS?

A: Highly unlikely, as the product has been designed with 256 combinations in the frequency range to avoid interference.

Q: CAN MORE THAN ONE RECEIVER BE USED E.G. IN A LARGE HOUSE OR SEPARATE BUILDING?

A: Yes extra receivers can be used in different locations and can each be programmed to sound a different/or same sound at the same time in response to the one transmitter.

Q: WHEN USING MULTIPLE TRANSMITTERS TO COVER DIFFERENT AREAS, DOES THE SAME TYPE OF TRANSMITTER HAVE TO BE USED?

A: No, up to four transmitters can be used to signal the one receiver and any combination of the three models can be chosen for the different locations. Extra transmitters and receivers can be added to create a unique system for any application.
