Alarm, Security System of eHouse smart home automatomation system - InputExtender (IE) I / II and Expander (EX) InputExtenders
are part of eHouse security system together with ExternalManager.
Each InputExtender I allows connecting up to 28 alarm sensors. Telephone 6 pin RJ-11 sockets are installed to maximally ease installation and service.
Disconnecting input from ground will generate alarm or warning depending on current zone definition and if sensor signal should be checked or not.
InputExtender has 1 analog input which can work as TAMPER (sabotage) for detection sudden changes of voltage on it.
ExternalManager can cooperate with max. 3 InputExtenders.
Maximal number of zones which can be defined is 25 changed together for each InputExtenders.
Each InputExtender's input (Sensor) unique name can be assigned in eHouse.exe application.
There is also possibility for creation intuitive names of zones which gives ease information in system logs and visualization and acoustic signalization of events.
InputExtender II (Bis) is alternation of InputExtender I, allowing automatic and direct turning on devices in response of sensor activation.
Mask is individually created for each sensor and each zone.
InputExtender Bis allows connection of 14 alarm sensors.
Disconnecting input from ground will generate alarm or warning depending on current zone definition and if sensor signal should be checked or not. InputExtender II has 1 analog input which can work as TAMPER (sabotage) for detection sudden changes of voltage on it.
There are also 14 outputs directly assigned to inputs.
Each output activation is perform if it is enabled for current zone and sensor activation was encountered activation time depends on sensor activation.
Each output mask is set individually for each zone.
InputExtenders has Early Warning output, which is activated immediately in case of active sensor (monitored in current zone), and is deactivated 10sec after sensors deactivated.
Alarm horn, lamp are activated after 1 minute from changing zone, which gives possibility to remove source of alarm before sending signals to monitoring or security agency.
eHouse application after receiving alarm signals, sends SMS notification to two defined groups:
- eHouse administrators - who are informed on each zone change and security sensors violations,
- reported users - who are informed on security sensors violations and alarm deactivation by authorized users (administrators, electronic RF keys, PDA, panels, or from eHouse application). This group may contain mobile phone numbers of neighbors, police, security agency, etc.
Module assures UPS power supply for eHouse security system (IE) and RS232-RS485 Converter.
Module enables easy connection of whole security system:
- Relay Module for ExternalManager,
- Relay Module for InputExtenders II (Bis),
Connection between all modules requires only flat cables with IDC female sockets. This solution maximally ease installation and service support. Expander contains relays for direct switching on Alarm Horn, Light, Early Warning signal, Output 1 of ExternalManager, Output 2 of ExternalManager.
