Parabeam® XR-2500 is probably the highest performing gate alarm on the market, enabling entrances to be monitored thousands of metres away from your house. The XR-2500 uses our XR-LoRa wireless protocol which has so much range there’s rarely a need for an external gain antenna (unless the site is particularly challenging) making it a quick and easy installation. If your entrance way is less than 35m wide and a very long distance away from your house, this system is perfect.
The XR-2500, like all of our models, uses a proper photo-electric beam, making it far more immune to false alarms than PIR based systems. 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 gate alarm yet.
The XR-2500 is compatible with optional auxiliary devices such as our long range UHF paging system or Text Message Module, and easily interfaces with Alarm Panels.
See our Parabeam® Standard if you require our standard range gate alarm, or the Parabeam® LITE if you require a residential gate alarm. (If you need a much longer detection beam than 35m, check out our Parabeam® PRO Series )
Q: I want to install 3-4 beam-sets but I only need the long wireless range on one of my beam-sets, can I use cheaper beams for the closer ones?
A: This has been a common question. The XR-2500 is not compatible with our LITE or standard beam-sets so you can’t mix the different systems. An alternative is to install a Standard system instead, with a range-boosting antenna to receive your more distant beam-set, allowing you to install cheaper, shorter range beams in the closer locations. The drawbacks to consider are the additional installation time and hassle, the cost of an antenna and the eventual deterioration of an outdoor antenna. The other drawback is your base receiver must stay in the location the antenna cable has been routed to. We recommend using XR-2500 beams all-round if this situation comes up but you are welcome to discuss the different options so you can make your own decision.
