Chubb Fire & Security has launched Advisor Advanced, a sophisticated intruder alarm panel that is fully scalable to protect up to 64 zones. Chubb is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
Intelligently designed, the new Advisor Advanced panel provides both visual and audio indicators that an intrusion has been detected, and can be accessed with a personal identification number (PIN), card, or a combination of both. Ideally suited for small-sized businesses, large residential properties and medium to large business premises, Advisor Advanced benefits from the global research and development capabilities of Chubb’s parent company, United Technologies.
The Advisor Advanced system can also be expanded to include up to 32 wireless zones, bringing significant advantages for systems that need to be extended into areas where wires may be impractical or disruptive.
The latest in communications features (i.e. compatibility with GSM/GPRS or PSTN/ISDN) allow customers to communicate with their system from anywhere in the world by sending and receiving SMS notifications. The panel also connects, and is compatible with, future technology enhancements, such as access control systems.
“Advisor Advanced is a solution that meets the needs of a large range of customers, bringing high-quality intruder detection to a wide variety of building applications,” says Colin Leatherbarrow, director, product solutions, Chubb Fire & Security.
“Where specialist technology or systems are needed, then we will of course continue to work with best-in-class providers,” he adds. “But the panel has been designed to bring the highest quality technology to the widest number of customers.”
In addition to the panel, the Advisor Advanced product range includes smoke detectors, magnetic contacts, motions sensors and door controls.
