Cadena UMK 587 complex with a set of sensors – an overview of the capabilities of a smart home:

Working in a security system scenario

In some cases, the complex is purchased for this very purpose. Indicators are the main element of visual alerts. The first one is GSM. It blinks in case of successful registration in the network or in case of financial blocking (if the account has run out of funds). The second is SMS. It will flash when the user receives a message. Another indicator is PVR. It determines the status of the cameras. Lock LED:

  • Off – no protection.
  • Lit – the security function is activated.
  • Blinking – the building perimeter security function is on.

The Alarm LED turns on every time the sensors are triggered. The SD LED lights up only when a memory card is inserted into the slot. The stand-alone alarm unit supports 2 protection modes. You can choose the option “home” or “perimeter” using the radio remote control. Another option is control from a smartphone in the application (the mobile application does not allow changing modes, only adjusting).
