    Can anyone recommend a general purpose wired PIR?

    I've done a search for "PIR" and there are no recommendation threads for the last 2 years, so perhaps it's time to ask again. Technology changes so rapidly... Is there a common internal wired PIR detector that is recommended? I'd like to exclude pet tolerant varieties. Other than that...

    Which Manual Call Point - Pick your choice.

    Saw this in a super market the other week and thought it was a bit odd, two "Fire Alarm" manual call points next to a double emergency exit door. Don't think there was a magnetic door lock, but can't be 100% sure. Maybe one of them is for something else or that one is not within the required...

    I've recently taken the challenge of setting up the alarm properly and came across a few issues.

    How to make a cheap microwave proximity alarm?

    Pyronix Enforcer, advice on setting up the system

    Hi, I have a cat so don't want PIRs but I intend just to fit several door/window contacts, a bell box and a control panel. Something simple that makes a noise on site is all because my neighbours are good and would respond, plus I'm likely to be in if it's night time anyway. What would you...

    Where exactly should you put surface contacts?

    Since recently dwelling on surface contacts, I came across this suggestion on a web site called Ultra Secure Direct. I had always thought that the contacts went as far as possible away from the hinge, so on the left in the above diagrams. They suggest a 1/3rd of the way from the hinge so that...
