Tyco PowerSeries Neo
Rising demand from end users for wireless connectivity, connected solutions and smart systems has seen an increase of such systems in the intruder alarm marketplace. Through its DSC brand, Tyco Security Products claims to offer a credible solution in the form of its Powerseries Neo platform.
Tyco Security Products has strengthened its portfolio with DSC’s Powerseries Neo version 1.2, an integrated feature-rich hybrid security platform designed to serve users’ needs. It offers the reliability of a hard-wired security system with the flexibility, scalability and advanced features provided by its PowerG wireless intrusion technology.
Powerseries Neo is designed for busy small- to medium-sized commercial and residential customers. As a hybrid platform, it can work with legacy wired systems, allowing users to make the most of an existing investment whilst curtailing installation costs.
The system also provides a convenient means to scale-up systems as needed through the addition of wireless zones to accommodate a full range of devices, thereby growing with the customer as their needs change.
End users concerned about specific insurance or regulatory issues may find that the PowerSeries Neo platform meets the relevant security standards and regulations, whilst also offering the additional benefits of a wireless platform.
The wireless capabilities of the system include real-time visibility of the premises for visual verification and further insight into events as they happen with real-time audio verification, thus minimising the cost of false alarms.
This is achieved via the system’s administrator dashboards. Users also have the option of around-the-clock access through mobile apps and integrated smart home and business capabilities.
The system makes use of PowerG technology, claimed by Tyco to provide the highest level of reliability and privacy in wireless transmissions with encrypted data communication to guard against hacking. The system is also claimed to provide secure imagery for visual verification.
PowerG delivers communication within the system through a two-way platform that seeks out and moves to available wireless frequency channels as needed.
Energy and battery usage is preserved by the constant measurement of communication quality, which is claimed to set transmission power to minimal levels.
