  1. Hi All, I am trying to help a client with a perimeter protection system for a gated community. I have experience with IP video surveillance and done some courses on analogue systems but I am not very familiar with alarms, which is why I came here for some help. Attached is a rough sketch of the layout. I plan on using long range active IR beams, hopefully integrated with a few IP cameras that will be managed on a milestone VMS server. The IR beams that I have decided to use are Alean AN900-B200 Triple Photo Electric IR Beam Detectors with 200m outdoor range. What I need help with would be how to connect each detector unit with a central control panel and then what panels would integrate easily with VMS software that is run on an IP network? Should I run alarm wire 100s of meters to a central location? With IP cameras as soon as trenching and cabling becomes cost prohibitive I normally install UBNT Loco M2's to communicate with the control room. Would this be a viable option when using IR detectors? What extra equipment would be needed to convert the relay signal into an digital format where it can be received at base on the VMS software? I have not been able to find a solution on how to transmit the alarm relay to base wirelessly. A lot of googling has also not yielded an answer. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Any other tips and ideas that would help also appreciated. Thanks. Jester Res Rough Sketch.pdf
  2. Can anyone suggest a good wireless external perimeter protection system to use to link to a CCTV DVR. Something with outputs or a text message dialer would be good so the customer can receive a message when someone outside their premises. I was thinking of fitting a Texecom 48w. Takex external PIRs can be connected to the door contact inputs and a com2400 will send a text to the customer on activation. The panel outputs can be wired to the DVR to trigger alarm channels and PTZ activations. Any other cheaper ideas as this is a fairly pricy one?
