Hi DIYer! As you probably know by now, we're huge fans of PowerG Sensors. We figured it was time we started highlighting some of the best equipment from the PowerG sensor lineup. And what better place to start than an excellent door and window contact? Today, we present the DSC PG9975.
There are many reasons to be impressed with PowerG technology. Most notable is the insane range of PowerG Sensors. In open air, a PowerG Sensor will communicate from up to two kilometers away from the alarm system. This is roughly four times the range of a traditional wireless sensor. And since they are protected by 128-bit AES encryption, PowerG Sensors are extremely secure and almost impossible to take over.
The PG9975 fits these functions into an ultra-thin device that is less than 8 millimeters thick. The full dimensions for the device in inches are 2.45"" x 1"W x 0.3"D. This makes the PG9975 extremely unobtrusive when used. It's no wonder that it is often referred to as a "vanishing" door and window sensor; you won't even know it's there! The device can be easily mounted with screws or with the double-sided foam tape that comes included. No installation tools are needed if using double-sided foam tape. Also included is a 3V CR2032 lithium battery that has an average life of three years.
The sensor operates in virtually the same manner as any other door and window contact. The sensor is installed on the door or window frame, and the included magnet is secured on the door or window itself within a quarter-inch of the sensor. When the door or window is opened, the magnet will separate from the sensor. This will cause a reed switch inside the sensor to activate, telling the sensor to alert the system. The system will then perform the programmed Response Type for that zone.
As a PowerG Sensor, the DSC PG9975 communicates at a wireless frequency of 915 MHz, and it will work with any compatible alarm system. This includes the brand-new IQ Panel 2 Plus. You can purchase the DSC PG9975 from Alarm Grid. Get yours today!
