The Interlogix 600-9400-IMAG-KIT is a combo kit that includes an Alarm.com Image Sensor and the compatible daughtercard for the Simon XT®
(firmware revision 1.3),
(1.5), Simon XTi-5, and
(4.0). If you already have the daughtercard the image sensor can be purchased separately. The 600-9400-IMAG Alarm.com image sensor consists of a passive infrared (PIR) motion detector with an integrated camera. When the motion sensor on the device is activated, the camera will take a picture and upload it to the Alarm.com server. A user can be notified of the image capture then access their Alarm.com app to view the image at any time. This sensor provides a quick and easy way to obtain a simple image when a motion sensor is tripped, without having to use a complete video monitoring plan. Many people use image sensors to verify that an intruder is present in their property, which makes them excellent for preventing false alarms and even better for tracking down an intruder after a break-in.
The PIR motion detector on the image sensor covers an area of 35 feet by 40 feet, making it great for use in homes and small businesses. It is ETL Certified, and the device is battery-operated for added reliability. The motion sensor features a configurable sensitivity setting, and it can even be set up for pet immunity if desired. As for the integrated camera, it produces full-color images, and night vision is supported using IR illumination. This ensures that crystal-clear photographs will be always be taken, even during the night. In terms of compatibility, the device can interface with any Interlogix Alarm System that has an active Alarm.com cellular module. The cellular module must have an attached image sensor daughterboard. The required daughterboard is included with this kit.
Whenever the PIR sensor is activated, the integrated camera will take a picture, and send the snapshot to the panel's Alarm.com cellular module. The communicator will then pass the image onto the Alarm.com server. If the user wants, they can also configure their Alarm.com account settings to have images sent to them through text and email alerts as well. Additionally, a user can access Alarm.com at any time and have the sensor take a picture of the area. This is possible even if the PIR motion sensor has not been activated. By using the Alarm.com Mobile App, this can be done from virtually anywhere. This feature is great for situations where you want to quickly check in on your home or business while you are away. Users will also appreciate the ease of installation for the device, as there is no broadband or router configuration required.
Note: This kit includes the daughterboard that is needed for the image sensor to sync with Alarm.com. Alarm Grid also offers a non-kit option that includes only the image sensor.
