Honeywell new wireless DUAL TEC® motion sensor helps reduce false alarms and can lead to lower intervention costs

Product Profile

A key addition to Honeywell's wireless sensor range for its G2 and Galaxy® Dimension ranges, the new DT8M DUAL TEC® motion sensor combines its proven K-band microwave technology with our powerful patented bi-directional radio and agile routing technology to deliver a more reliable intruder solution.

The wireless DUAL TEC® motion sensor provides faster and more reliable detection using K-band microwaves to quickly verify the PIR signal prior to any alarm decision. Because K-band operates on a higher frequency, it is less likely to penetrate walls and glass, reducing false alarms and associated intervention costs.

It provides the perfect solution for small commercial sites, which are more prone to break-ins and false alarms typically caused by the number of the people using the system, interference from other equipment and external factors such as white light.

Installers and end users also benefit from a faster installation using wireless sensors such as the new DT8M. In a recent school installation, the installer completed a 1200sqm, 46-sensor installation using the DT8M in one day using two engineers, whereas a wired system would have taken a full week to install and programme everything.

The new wireless DUAL TEC® also enables intruder protection for installations where it would previously have been difficult or impractical to run cabling, eliminating loopholes which could potentially be exploited by criminals. It is also ideal for protecting sites during temporary building work or in retail environments prone to frequent shop fitting changes, where wired systems can be disrupted. The wireless DUAL TEC® can be easily attached to temporary partitions or supporting walls to secure an area that may become more vulnerable to intrusion. For residential sites, it can provide a more reliable protection for rooms with large areas of glass such as conservatories, and is supplied with a pet immune lens, making it a great pet-friendly solution.

The bi-directional radio technology used by the Galaxy control panels ensures that a panel is not only transmitting a signal to the detector to check it is still operational; the detector also sends a confirmation signal back to the panel if requested. This reduces the number of transmissions, making the system more reliable and less likely to miss real signals from the sensors.

The no limits freedom of wireless security that installers long for is rapidly becoming a reality with the reliability and flexibility offered by combining Honeywell's K-band, bi-directional radio and agile routing technologies into one wireless solution.
