Revolutionizing what is considered viable in a home protection system, PowerMax®+ enables homeowners to conveniently view images of their property. Miniature cameras are deployed in strategic locations throughout the home, enabling residents to safely and discretely view what is occurring outside their front door or in the reception area. What is more, users can view images of their home from any remote location – seeing the kids coming home from school, verifying that deliveries have arrived, etc.

The above is an extract from the `PowerMax +` Visonic web site and although it will do all of the above I think that the basic kit is amazing. It comes with a Main panel, three PIR detectors, one door contact, two key fobs and a outside siren/strobe box. This kit is pre-programmed, has all the batteries needed plus necessary fixings. All you need do is fix all the equipment on the wall, plug the power supply box into a socket outlet and if you want the alarm box to ring you if an alarm situation happens then also plug the telephone lead into a standard BT socket. Once all that is done then you just have to set the alarm code and the telephone numbers the alarm box should ring. You can program up to four telephone numbers into the main panel, the way it works is, once the alarm is triggered the panel will dial the first number that is programmed, if it doesn't get an answer from the phone it dials, it will disconnect and call the next number in line and so on.

As you can see from the diagram above you can buy additional detectors, (smoke, gas, flood, etc)  fix them in position then just get the panel to `Learn` them.

Another clever thing is the panic alarm function; this is already built into the key fob supplied. But say for example you have elderly relatives, you could install this system, only the panel if you wanted (all items can be bought separately) and one of the activators, wrist band, pendant or pocket unit, it would work in the same way as described above.

The good thing about the panel is its versatility; you can even get the panel to call you if there is no movement detected by any one or multiple PIR’s, good again to look after the elderly.

Also available are plug in units that fit into your existing sockets that will turn on devices by pre-programmed times from the main panel or you can dial into the panel to turn things on.

I have to say having seen many systems in the past, this one is tops for me.

Additional detectors and auxiliary devices do vary so please just ask,
