Watchguard Professional Grade Complete Hardwired Alarm Kit with Contact ID Dialler & SMS Messaging Function


Watchguard Professional Grade Complete Hardwired Alarm Kit with Contact ID Dialler & SMS Messaging Function


If you’re after a complete Home or Commercial alarm system, you need the SMS8KITHW. It contains a premier Watchguard 8 zone alarm panel, internal and external sirens, 3 high quality PIR movement sensors, 4 reed switches for your doors or windows, an emergency panic button and all necessary power supplies, batteries and cabling. These detectors and sirens help protect all areas of your house by performing functions such as monitoring your rooms for movement, and detecting when doors or windows are opened. The system provides personal security monitoring via your mobile phone using SMS messaging or optional high security 24 hour back-to-base monitoring (*Fees apply). It is easy to program and the system can communicate alarm conditions with up to 2 people via their mobile phones. Communication is sent using the industry standard Contact ID communication protocol.

Please note: a SIM card is NOT required - SMS messages are sent via your landline. The SMS messaging function can be disabled if desired so as to operate as a regular 'dialer' alarm control panel only. All programming is done via a simple menu driven system, with large easy to read characters on an LCD keypad. The keypad is backlit for easy viewing at night.

The panel has been specifically designed in Australia to meet the requirements of the average home or office, and to be easily installed by either a trade professional or electronics handyperson.
