Auto Dialler Intruder Alarms
Alarms fitted with a dialler will also include external sounders.
Diallers are often used for premises in areas where the key-holders live or work close by.
There are two main types: Land-line Speech Dialler and GSM Dialler.
Speech Dialler Key Features:
The speech dialler connects to your intruder alarm panel or is built in and communicates using your phone line. It's a cost-effective way to be alerted if your alarm goes off when you're out.
The telephone numbers of the people that you want it to call if the alarm is triggered are programmed into the device. In this event, the speech dialler will ring the numbers in order and play back a message explaining what must have happened and what you'd like them to do. Some Diallers allow you to record your own message.
The person who answers the call will be able to stop the speech dialler from contacting any of the next numbers by pressing a key or entering a code on their phone.
Some speech diallers can be programmed to detect and send different messages for intruder, personal attack or fire incidents.
Connects to your existing telephone line - no need for additional line rentals.
Cheap to run, as it only dials out when the alarm goes off.
The speech dialler unit is relatively cheap to buy.
You do need a telephone line.
An intruder could cut the line where it comes into the premises, so the speech dialler would not be able to call out.
You need to install a cable to connect your existing phone line to the speech dialler unit.
You need to find reliable people who you can trust with a key and that live nearby to be the message recipients if you're not available.
GSM Dialler Key Features:
GSM diallers use mobile phone networks and voice or text messages to communicate. You need a SIM card to insert into the GSM dialler, which is connected to your alarm system. We will supply this as part of the package.
It can either call or send a text message to the numbers that you have programmed into it. It will transmit the voice or text messages that have been set up. The recipient can stop the GSM dialler calling anyone else by pressing a key, entering a code, or replying to the text message with a code.
Some GSM alarm diallers allow you to text them with codes that will reset the alarm system remotely. This can be useful if you or your nominated key holders aren't able to get there within a few minutes, and if you are confident that it is a false alarm.
Connected via the mobile phone network so no need for a telephone line or line rental.
