Alarm Installation

ALARM INSTALLATION COURSES

GENERAL

This course is designed to teach participants how to install an intruder alarm system in domestic, commercial or industrial premises to the recommended EN50131 Standard. Other security-orientated courses available are Digital, Text and Voice Communicators, Access Control, Fire Alarm Foundation, Preliminary Electronic Security and CCTV (CCTV Installation and Digital CCTV & Remote Access).


ALARM INSTALLATION

Aim:

To teach participants how to install and service Intruder Alarm Systems.

Qualification:

On completion of the Course, having been successful in TWO examinations (one written, one practical) the participant will receive a Hi-Tech Training Certificate.

Duration:

30 hours (10 x 3 hour training sessions). Classes will be held in comfortable surroundings.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand basic electrical theory including OHM’s Law and associated series and parallel circuits.
  2. Select battery to comply with EN50131 standards requirements.
  3. Wire the alarm control panel to an assortment of detection and signalling devices.
  4. Wire remote keypads to the alarm control panel.
  5. Program the essential elements of a system.
  6. Know different zone types and their uses.
  7. Programme and setup Hardwired, Wireless and Hybrid systems
  8. Trouble shoot and test a system.

Course Content:

  1. Introduction to electrical circuits, current, resistance, insulation and conduction.
  2. Ohm’s law. Basic circuits analysis. Fuses and trip Switches. Wiring techniques.
  3. Batteries: - Testing and choosing battery to comply with standard’s requirements.
  4. Control panels: - Standard, Wireless and Hybrid systems. General operation. Local and remote keypads. Programming techniques and use of engineer Alarm Installation Coursesevent log.
  5. Zones: - Alarm, tamper, exit/entry, access, personal attack, exit/entry delay, etc.
  6. Detection devices: - Magnetic reed contacts, pressure mats, personal attack buttons, inertia shock sensors, analysing devices, infrared detectors, microwave detectors, hybrid detectors.
  7. Signalling devices: - Siren, bell, strobe light, exit/entry buzzer & Self-activating bell (S.A.B.)
  8. Introduction to Security lighting, Digital, Text and Voice Communicators and CCTV.
  9. European EN50131 recommended standard for Installation of security alarm equipment.
  10. Trouble shooting: - use of digital multimeter, how to “walk-test” and “soak-test” zones.
  11. Marketing and selling your product – hints and tips.

In order to simulate a practical installation in a building, each participant will wire up a number of different Alarm Control Panels to typical auxiliary equipment such as strobe lights, sirens, reed contacts, inertia sensors, infra-red detectors, Self Activating Bell units, etc. This practical work largely contributes to the course’s high credibility.
