    thanks, interesting ... 'wonder if the Sequads would work well with Idratek ? ie: if the two signals would be picked-up OK ... presumably they both appear on the same wire within the cable & so would have to go to the same digital contact on an Idratek module ?

    The sequad unit basically outputs 2 signals one for the outside curtain zone and one for the center zone. These contacts are normally closed.
    I can send you the install manual if you like.

    thanks ... sounds like each signal is on a separate wire withing the one cable, and the tamper-switch is on another, too ... if you have the manual electronically, then yes, please !

    If anyone does find any tiny barrel type IR beams and receivers - the sort of size of the laser key chain pointers - that could be rebated into a doorway frame - do let me know - I'm sure someone must make them with a nice mounting flange arrangement.

    I wonder if the Sequads would satisfy the dual confirmation requirements for alarm system nowadays ? I suspect maybe not as the two sensors are similar technology.

    Yes they satisfy the UK ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) policy on Sequential Confirmation.
    They are also DD243:2004 Compliant donīt know if this is the same thing.

    Dragging up an old thread but had a search and can't find anything.

    Has anyone got any suggestions for inconspicuous reed door switches?
    I am looking at these at the minute but they may stand out in our wooden (i.e. not white) door frames.

    As per Karams suggestion I will be placing them at the top of the frame as we are not a family of doors fully closed but they tend to have a shove

    Thanks

    This is the standard one we use for Idratek installs,
    For dark wood frames you can paint with the two part would grain effect paints and they blend in OK.

    Thanks Viv... if they are good enough for the professional install then they are good enough for me!

    Good idea about the camouflage as well..
