Residential Security Systems

Save Time During an Emergency

Get the professionalism of PLE’s services for your home with our Residential Security Systems

During an alarm condition such as a burglary or a fire, an alarm system installed by PLE Security will save you time by:

  • sounding a siren that will alert you and your neighbors to an emergency
  • providing a visual notification of an alarm by the keypad changing colors
  • staying on even after the alarm has been silenced so it continues communicating with the monitoring station
  • displaying the area and type of alarm that has occurred
  • automatically notifying the monitoring station of the alarm

Features of PLE Systems

Each PLE Residential System comes complete with features that make the system easy to use.  

  • MyAccess Text Message Control- Allows the user to text commands to the alarm system including Arm, Disarm, and Status
  • Cancel/Verify- If you inadvertently set off your system you can easily cancel a police dispatch by disarming the system which will, in turn, ask you to Cancel or Verify the burglary. A cancel signal will be sent to the monitoring station and they will notify the police. If an actual break-in did occur, you can press the verify button and a “burglary verified” message will be sent to the monitoring station.
  • Check-In Feature- The check-in feature allows your child to press the number 4 on the keypad when they arrive home from school. The check-in message will then be sent as a text message or an email to up to three recipients (text plan required)
  • Remote Programming- If you ever have the need to make changes to your systems programming, PLE Security’s staff can make those changes remotely via a cellular connection to your panel thereby eliminating the cost of a service call to your home (cellular plan required)

Burglary Alarm Systems

Every PLE Residential alarm system comes complete with everything you need to keep your family and your home safe from intrusion. 

Details

Control Panel- The control panel is the “brain” of the entire security system. All alarm system programming is stored in the control panel. Each device (door contact, motion detector, smoke alarm etc.) is assigned a zone number. The zone number identifies which zone the signal (alarm, trouble, or check-in) comes from. When the system is armed and an alarm signal is received by the control panel, a signal containing the data from the alarm is sent to the central monitoring station by the control panel’s communicator.

Keypad- The keypad is the end users link to the security system. Full readout LCD keypads provide the user with easy to follow menus that allow the user to perform basic functions such as arming and disarming the system, adding user codes, and viewing the system log. Keypads are typically installed near the doors that are used to enter and exit the premises to allow for quick disarming of the system.

Door Contact- Door contacts are typically installed on all exterior doors. The door contact consists of two pieces, the transmitter and the magnet. The transmitter is installed on the top of the door frame and is wired into the alarm system. The magnet is mounted on the door lined up with the transmitter. When the door is closed the transmitter senses the magnet and shows a closed condition on the alarm system. When the door is opened the magnet is taken away from the transmitter and shows an open condition. If the system is armed when this occurs, an alarm signal will be transmitted from that zone.

Motion Detector- The motion detector is a device used to detect movement in a large open space such as a living room. This provides extra detection inside of the house in case a burglar bypasses perimeter zones (door contacts, glass-break detectors). Motion detectors are typically installed in the corners of a room to provide the greatest range of protection.

Glassbreak Detectors- The glass-break detector is a device that listens for the sound of breaking a glass. When activated, this component is typically programmed to generate an alarm at all times including when the system is disarmed. Glass break detectors are generally installed on a wall across from the glass windows or doors being monitored.

Key Fob- The key fob is very similar to your vehicles keyless entry system. It provides a convenient way to arm and disarms your alarm system with just the touch of a button. Key fobs have four buttons and are typically programmed for the following functions: away arm, stay arm, disarm, and panic.

Smoke Detector- Smoke detectors can be wired directly to your control panel or connected wirelessly. The added advantage of a smoke detector to your alarm system is that not only does it audibly notify you of a fire, it sends out an alarm to the monitoring station which in turn dispatches the fire department to your home, even while you’re away.

Hardwired and wireless systems

Hardwired systems require all system components to be physically connected to the control panel. In a home that is just being built, “pre-wiring” a system is the most reliable and easy way to wire a security system because the wire runs throughout the house before drywall and ceilings are installed. This provides the neatest method of installation and is the least intrusive to the homeowner. The advantage of the wireless system is that there is no need to change any batteries. The cost of hardwired components can also be substantially cheaper than wireless components as well. Unfortunately, most homes that are bought do not have a pre-wired alarm system installed. Without a basement to run the wires in, it is hard to conceal the wires from view.

Wireless systems connect components to the control panel using radio waves (much like a cordless telephone). When first introduced, wireless devices did not offer long-range communication which meant devices could go in and out of communication due to walls and other means of interference. As the technology increased over the years, wireless is almost as reliable as hardwired systems. Communication distances have improved and devices now “check-in” with the control panel to ensure that signal is not lost. The advantages of a wireless system are that components do not need wires in between them and the control panel. This means cleaner and faster installations which will free up the homeowner. The drawback to wireless devices is that they do require batteries. Most devices will operate for 1-3 years depending on use. Battery replacement is quick and easy though and can usually be done by the homeowner.

LifeSentry Medical Alerts

Independent living is the desire of most people. However, there are times when living alone can mean there is no one to assist you during an emergency. LifeSentry from PLE offers the ability to summon assistance at any time with a simple push of a medical alarm button.

How the LifeSentry® personal emergency system works:

In the case of an emergency situation, a simple press of a button will notify the PLE local monitoring center that there is an emergency situation. An operator will be able to communicate with the caller over the two-way voice medical pendant to make sure everything is ok.

If there is an emergency, the operator will dispatch the appropriate authorities, contact the family to notify them of the situation, and then stay on the line with the person in need until help arrives.

With a standard personal emergency response system, you are limited by the location of the base station because you need to be within “range” to hear the call center talking to you. If you are too far from the base, you cannot hear, or more importantly, tell them what the emergency is!

LifeSentry from PLE has two-way voice communication built into the pendant itself. This technology extends the communication coverage area to anywhere in and around your home where an emergency may occur.

You no longer need to be worried about your distance from the base unit – you can hear us, and we can hear you directly through the pendant!

Details
  • Extended Coverage: Up to 600 feet of coverage use from the base.
  • Water Resistant: Allows for use even in the shower or tub.
  • Voice Prompted System: Audible announcements during standard, full-system, and battery testing.
  • Long Lasting Battery: Provides up to 4 hours of talk time, and four months on standby.
  • Emergency Battery Power: Up to 24 hours of standby power in the event of a power failure.
  • Battery Level Supervision: Pendant checks in with the base every 13 hours to verify battery level.
  • Convenient Carrying Options: Can be used on a lanyard, wrist/wheelchair strap, and a belt clip.
  • Multiple Device Use: Up to 4 pendants and wall units can be used with a single base.
