Pyronix has announced the first wireless low-mounted external volumetric detector to be added to its range. The new XDL12TT-WE combines Pyronix Enforcer two-way wireless technology with dependable external detection protocols, including: Dual-Vision Pet Immune, Tri-Signal Detection Logic and Gaussian Frequency Modulation (GFM), to deliver a highly dependable wireless external detector.
New dimension of external detection
“This combination of Pyronix technologies brings a new dimension to external detection and to the market,” Pyronix Marketing Manager, Laurence Kenny, said. “When it comes to perimeter security, it is literally the first line of defence for any property. Large fences and locked gates can be effective deterrents, but not always the most practical or secure method.
“What is clear, is that perimeter protection can play a vital role in deterring the intruder from attempting a break-in. This is why Pyronix has analysed external environments and the requirements for reliable and stable detection, to deliver an effective, easy-to-install wireless solution.”
Tri-Signal Detection Logic
The new XDL12TT-WE is IP55 weatherproof rated and consists of two independent passive infrared (PIR) sensors and one microwave (MW) sensor in one common housing. This Tri-Technology (TT) of the XDL12TT-WE delivers advanced outdoor protection. To identify the presence of an intruder, the XDL12TT-WE utilises Tri-Signal Detection Logic alongside TT, whereby all three sensors must be activated sequentially in quick succession to create an alarm. This heightens the detector’s immunity to false alarms and ensures optimum detection performance in external conditions.

Along with Tri-Signal Detection Logic and TT, Pyronix has also pre-empted potential false alarm issues from the presence of pets or swaying vegetation, by including Dual-Vision Pet Immune and Anti-Sway Analytics features. The two PIRs of the XDL12TT-WE have a dedicated volumetric field of view, with the top PIR detecting outwards and up, while the bottom PIR detects outwards and down, without either crossing the central horizontal plane between them.
False alarms kept to a minimum
This setup of non-overlapping PIR sensors alongside Tri-Signal Detection Logic, delivers highly secure sequential detection and increases its tolerance to pet immunity. Anti-Sway Analytics digitally filters the environment to distinguish between the movement of trees and plants from the movements of an intruder, so that false alarm activations are kept to an absolute minimum.
These external detection protocols then benefit from the advantages of Enforcer two-way wireless technology, with full supervision, anti-jamming and 128-bit wireless protocol encryption, to maximise the new XDL12TT-WE’s reliability; ensuring signals transmitted by the system are protected and any code-grabbing is prevented.
It also brings with it a host of installation benefits, without the invasive nature of fitting wired peripherals. This increases the efficiency of the installation for customers, while providing a steadfast detector for end-users. For example, Instant Two-Way Device Control (ITDC) enables the instant wake-up or sleep of devices as the system is set or unset.

So, when the system is set, the XDL12TT-WE is instantly and constantly awake, without any sleep timers, unlike other devices on the market. When the system is unset, the XDL12TT-WE sleeps. This setup delivers enhanced security, with increased battery life.
Wireless signal range
In terms of the wireless signal, the new XDL12TT-WE’s high sensitivity receiver reduces the need for repeaters and therefore reduces the installation costs, as it is capable of a wireless signal range of up to 1.6km in open space. In addition, the high-sensitivity antenna of the XDL12TT-WE ensures that the signals being transmitted and received are as strong as possible. Utilising Gaussian Frequency Modulation (GFM) to spread the signal, while reducing unwanted noise and harmonics, enables the latest Pyronix detector to meet stringent European, ETSI and other worldwide standards.
“As we continually look to improve and develop our offerings, the XDL12TT-WE is the latest innovation. Easy to fit and offering superb protection, the new XDL12TT-WE offers a fantastically flexible solution,” Laurence said.
