Sargent & Greenleaf Alarm Module
Your safe lock knows when its blocking bolt is extended and retracted. Through its B.P.I. (Bolt Position Indicator) connections, it can share this information with your alarm system.
The B.P.I. can even be used to shunt your safe’s alarm circuit when the safe is unlocked by means of a valid code.
Duress can be a life-saver in situations where an authorised safe user is forced to open a safe (during a hold-up), it’s possible to alert authorities without alerting the bad guy at the same time. Simply adding 1 to the last digit of a working lock code can send a duress notification to a connected central monitoring station. The safe opens normally, keeping the “silent signal” a secret from the perpetrator.
- Remote Control
Your safe lock can be prevented from operating when a low-voltage signal is sent to it. The enable/disable signal can come from a remote location, or it can come from something as simple as a safemounted key switch. Often, a disable signal is set to be removed when the building alarm panel is deactivated, reducing false alarms. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination.
- Tamper Alerts
can reveal “insider” attempts to compromise your safe’s security system. Door and boltwork cover switches can be monitored 24/7 by your connected central station, helping to keep your trusted employees trusted.
- Door Loops
use simple, one-wire circuits to connect to safe door contacts. The lock cannot lock unless the circuit is closed. This prevents employees from locking safe doors open either for convenience or more questionable purposes.
