Low/High Frequency Vibration Alerts!
A shock sensor is a type of sensor used in security systems to detect vibrations or shocks caused by physical impacts. When a shock or vibration occurs, the sensor sends a signal to the security system's control panel, which triggers an alarm or alert. The control panel will then transmit the signal to the GeoArm central monitoring station. A trained operator will receive the signal and take the appropriate action, which may include contacting the property owner or dispatching emergency services. Shock sensors are commonly used on windows and doors to detect forced entry attempts by burglars. They may also be used in other areas of a property where sensitive or high-value equipment is stored. Some shock sensors are capable of detecting both low-frequency and high-frequency shocks, making them effective at detecting a wide range of impacts.
Shock sensors are commonly used in properties including:
1. Residential Homes: Shock sensors can be installed in doors, windows or other areas vulnerable to intruders, helping to detect break-ins and triggering the alarm system.
2. Commercial Buildings: Shock sensors are often used in businesses, particularly those with high-value equipment or inventory, to protect against theft and intrusion.
3. Industrial Facilities: Shock sensors can be used in manufacturing plants, storage facilities, and other industrial properties to protect machinery, equipment, and other valuable assets.
