Alarm system upgrade in Donabate Village- Astec to HKC

Astec Alarm system upgrade

His alarm system was installed in 2002 and was an Astec alarm system. The customer was aware that Astec had stopped manufacturing alarm systems after being taken over by HKC Securewatch. The existing system was not monitored and none of the window openings had any window contacts. 

Our recommendation alarm upgrade was as follows

Removal of all old Astec equipment 

Installation of HKC combined inertia sensors on each window opening and doors to detect forced entry and the opening and closing of the window/door.

Installation of two number HKC quad Passive infra red beams to provide back up to the perimeter detection on all the windows and doors.

Installation of the HKC 10/70 alarm panel complete with slimline remote keypad. 

At the front and back of the property we installed branded bellboxes in our signature black and red colouring.
