Your home should be a haven of peace and security – but when it really matters it’s best to be safe, not sorry. An unprotected property is a vulnerable one at any time, day or night. Every home or office needs the protection of a reliable alarm system, but sometimes people are put off by the prospect of false alarms or complicated setting procedures.
The Honeywell manufacturing company fully understands these concerns. The Honeywell Optima / Accenta products have been installed in over 3 million homes in the UK. The Honeywell latest range, with the same level of reliability and conformity to CE specification directives, comes with a sleek new LCD display keypad. Coupled with an intuitive menu interface, using and programming the panel is even easier. Read more below concerning the Gen4 Accenta/Optima features – general presentation of the hard-wired intruder alarms/alarm systems.
Gen4 Accenta/Optima – Overview and features
- 8 Zones
Each one is separately identified on the keypad and provides ample security detection for most domestic properties(8 zones panel).
- 3 part set programs
Allows three programmed setting levels dependent on the people in the property or the level of protection required, eg. night-time with upstairs detectors off and perimeter detectors on.
- Simple set readers for ease of operation
Up to 4 stylish readers can be used to SET/UNSET the system with the option of using a proximity keyfob. Ideal for young, elderly or infirm.
- Personal attack facility
PA buttons may be used to activate the system in an emergency. An additional PA facility exists on the remote keypads.
- Remote keypads for added flexibility
Up to four slimline keypads can operate the system from any point in the property.
- 5 Digi-Outputs
For a wire-in digital communicator, RedCare STU or Dialler. This allows the system to communicate with an Alarm Receiving Centre (not fitted on Optima Compact Gen4).
- New LCD Keypad
The LCD remote keypad operates with the Accenta and Optima Gen4 intruder systems. Up to four LED or LCD keypads can be connected to the system. The large 2×16 characters with backlight display provide a full status indication and the keypad plays entry and exit tones.
- Fire Zone
Zones 7 and 8 may be programmed as a 24 Hour Fire Zone operating all of the time except during engineer mode.
- 250-event log
The last 250 events to have occurred are stored in the memory and can be displayed, with their date and time, on the LCD remote keypad screen.
- Duress Code
Allows the user to unset the system and silence the alarm under duress, using a second code that will communicate an alarm to an Alarm Receiving Centre.
Can be used to select a low security chime alarm for various areas of your house, even when the main alarm is turned off. When a door is opened or a detector triggered in an area set to chime, the control panel will deliver a low-volume ‘bing-bong’ sound to alert you. This is ideal for areas that require low level monitoring.
- Zone names selectable from the library
A new option accessible from the LCD remote keypad allows the installer to assign descriptors from a 22-name library to each of the eight zones.
- Built-in tamper control
To protect all wiring and detectors in the system from unauthorised access including the control panel and remote keypad covers.
