The Zero is unique in that it draws no current until it is activated, reacts instantaneously to an alarm trigger, and only uses power when it is in an alarm state.
This enables the Zero to operate from a very minimal power supply. Unlike other systems using large lead acid batteries that have a high self discharge and require frequent recharging our advanced technology allows the use of a small Alkaline 9v battery.
The alarm is operated by a key-switch and uses either PIN or Reed switches for sensing intruders. On activation the high output siren will pulse for ~20 seconds* and the strobe activate. After ~10 minutes* if there are no further activation’s the alarm system will turn itself off again.
The Zero also has a built in battery indicator, just press the button and it will indicate if the battery is still OK to function. It is normal to expect at least 25 alarm cycles before the battery has reached the end of its usable life however the activation’s may be over many years.
The Protector Zero is also easily expandable with the addition of more PIN or Reed switches (additional cabling will be required). And being so easy to install it is makes it a great DIY trailer alarm.
