1 DUE 402356 Security and Fire Alarm Systems LEARNING OUTCOME 7B Describe design overview and location considerations for home security and fire alarm systems. Outcome addresses learning outcomes 1-4 for these specific technologies.

2 Home Security  Intrusion detection  Fire detection  Smoke detection Installation  New  Retrofit Options  Wired  Wireless

3 Zones Just like audio/video zones Security System zones  Location of sensors Important  How zones are setup Door sensors Window sensors  Zones important Multiple security zones Keeps track of alarms

4 Zone Multiple windows or doors = zone  Zone 1 Dining room Living room  Zone 2 Master bedroom  Zone 3 Front door Back door

5 Zones Zones transfer info to controllers  Status Power Line failures Telephone system problems System tampering Low batteries Type  Wired  Wireless Difference is how signal is transmitted

6 Zones Every circuit = zone = 1 device Room  2 door sensors  2 passive infrared receivers = total of 4 security zones

7 SubZones Another circuit 1 zone = 1 circuit = 1 device  Another circuit connects to above circuit  If subzone goes off Controller can’t tell if zone or subzone or zone has triggered alert

8 NC and NO Configuration of systems  NC Normally closed  System is armed  Open NC area and alarm gets triggered  NO Normally open  Area is open  If NO closes then it triggers alarm

9 Fire Systems Advance security systems  Smoke detectors  Carbon monoxide detectors Detects  Fire  Smoke  Heat Components  Fire alarms  Smoke detectors  Heat sensors

10 Smoke Detectors 2 Types  Ionization chamber detector Produces molecules charged with electricity Smoke attach to ions Electrical current stops  Triggers alarm  Photoelectric Chamber Light Source Light sensitive receiver Alarm  Light cannot get in  Smoke can get in  Smoke scatters light inside  Scatter light produces more light  Triggers alarm

11 Smoke Detectors Power  Batteries A year without changing If hear short beeps > change batteries  AC If power fails  Alarm fails

12 Heat Detectors Uses metal Metal units when heat enters air around it Alarm goes off  For Configuration check local codes or National electrical code. For installation check manufacturers website

13 Video surveillance In house  CCTV Closed circuit Television  Set cameras in different parts of house  Video available to specific channel  Video can be recorded  Tape  VCR  PVR  Internet Connect to house and view image Image sent to e-mail

14 Monitoring Monitor environment  Video surveillance  Lighting for security Use sensors  Photo cells Turn lights on evening  Not enough light is received so it turns lights  Motion detectors Movement received  Triggers video recording  Or turn lights on or flood lights

15 Wired Systems Low voltage telecommunications Connects to main alarm  Doors  Windows  Sensors Features  Reliability Can run with batteries  Efficiency Alarms is always connected to central system  It works Wired systems have always been used  Availability Many manufacturers make them

16 Wireless Systems Easy to install and use Portable No wires Low installation cost

17 Remote Access Manage system from anywhere Secure security system  Not too much integration with home network No one else can connect to it Internet  Web browser Login and change system configuration Connects to home network Access cameras Which system to use or buy?  Not all systems allow connection from Internet

18 Components Security control Panel  Center of security  Interface with home network is important  Controls everything Sensors Keypads Working Devices Security Cameras  CCTV  Important factors Resolution Sensitivity Monitor and Switches  Switches used with multiple cameras  Changes picture from one camera to another

19 Components Keypads  Interface with security system  Arm/disarm system  Change state of system  Zone that has triggered alarm appears in keypad # number = 22 = zone 22 etc.

20 Sensors 2 common sensors  PIR Passive Infrared Sensors (Motion sensors)  Smoke detectors Types  Contact sensors  Glass break sensors Detects sounds  Motion sensor  Flood sensor In basements  Carbon monoxide - CO
