Basic Overview

® Standard is a high performance wireless gate alarm that sounds an alert in your home whenever a visitor drives or walks through its detection beam.  It uses a proper photo-electric beam, making it more immune to false alarms than PIR based systems.   Never miss a customer or intruder again.   This version has been designed for solar-averse countries or heavily shaded sites.

® is hand assembled in New Zealand and designed to operate in sub-zero temperatures as reliably as the penetrating heat of the Australian outback.

The beam-set may be installed as a home ‘driveway alarm’ or across wider areas, protecting fuel storage tanks and implement sheds for example.

The detection beam itself can span up to 40m of open ground.   Wireless operating range between the Beam-set and Base Receiver is typically between 300-500m.  Range is affected by obstacles, and can extend as far as 1500m in perfect conditions, or be limited to 150m if the site is challenging.

See our ® Extended if you require our best range gate alarm, or the ® Lite if you require a residential gate alarm.

Two-way Radio Supervision and On-board Diagnostics (displayed on Base Receiver) are features alarm installers routinely expect on wireless equipment – we haven’t seen these appear on any other wireless gate alarm yet.

® Standard is compatible with our Pocket Beeper*, POCSAG Pager*, Text Message Module* and easily interfaces with Alarm Panels.

(* optional extras, sold separately).

This kit includes:
  • 700-FSK Beam-set(s) with battery leads
  • 2 x Lithium-Polymer external battery packs (3.7v @ 15Ah)
  • 1 x 1.8A 4.2V Battery charger
  • 1 700-FSK Two-zone Base Receiver or 4-zone Base Receiver
  • 12V Power Adaptor for the Base Receiver
  • Mounting Brackets for Beam-sets and external battery packs
Detailed Overview
Base Receiver

The ® 700-FSK Two-zone Receiver sounds an alarm whenever any enrolled beam-set beam is interrupted. The sound of the alarm differs depending on whether the activated Beam-set is assigned to Zone 1 or Zone 2.

The Two-zone Receiver has a fixed volume control. Other devices (or an alarm panel) interface with the Base Receiver via terminal blocks located on the back of the enclosure.

The Two-zone Receiver comes with its own antenna and is powered with a supplied 12V Power Adaptor.

Beam-set

The ® 700-FSK Beam-set is designed to monitor driveways or open ground with its precise invisible infra-red beam.

The beam-set is made up of two small Beam Units, installed directly opposite each other. An infra-red beam is transmitted from one and received by the other. Whenever the beam is broken, one Beam Unit sends an RF signal to the Base Receiver, alerting to the arrival of a person or vehicle.

The Beam-unit has a battery lead fitted with a waterproof DC battery connector. The lead length is available in 1m, 2m and 4m standard lengths, and can also be customized.

Batteries

The Beam-set is powered by external 15Ah Lithium-Polymer rechargeable batteries which may be unplugged and charged periodically.  Minimum time between re-charging is 4 months – maximum time is 6 months.  The external batteries are housed in weatherproof housings which are easily slid off a bracket and taken indoors to be charged.  Charging time is 15 hours if the battery is completely flat.

You may want to consider purchasing a spare battery so that the beam-set can always remain operational whenever one of the batteries is being charged.
