Devices for alarm management
As devices for setting and disarming alarm systems, wireless keyfobs for alarms, wired and wireless keypads, proximity cards and much more are used. The most common today are wired and wireless keyboards, key rings and alarm buttons. Most often, the key rings have four buttons. Full arming button, partial setting button, alarm button and disarm button. With the key fobs, you will not be able to arm individual zones. If such a task is set, then the keyboard will be suitable for its solution. There is a wide variety of keyboards. If you try to divide the keyboards into two large groups, then the most appropriate separation is the type of alarm management. With this separation, the relay keypads will enter one group, and the interface keyboards will enter into another group. The principle of the operation of the relay keypads consists in closing or opening the relay contacts when the combination of numbers is entered correctly. Interface keypads do not have a relay, their working principle is to transfer the encoded data to the central. The capabilities of interface keyboards are much wider than the capabilities of relay keyboards. With the help of interface keyboards you can not only put and remove the system from the alarm, but also view the status of groups, zones, control panels, etc. The only drawback of interface keyboards is the lack of universality. This means that if the interface keyboard is designed for one device, it will not work for others.
