Siemens Expert Intrusion Detection goes Wireless

With its range of Intrunet wireless detectors and peripherals, Siemens brings together an in-depth knowledge of sophisticated intrusion detection and communication technologies.

Simple and fast to install, this comprehensive portfolio addresses the most challenging requirements of typical wireless applications and is fully compatible with Siemens IC60 and Intrunet intrusion control systems. All detectors and peripherals are slim and elegant in design and will blend seamlessly in any environment. Based on well established proprietary wireless protocols, the range delivers reduced installation time and improved aesthetics, at the same time meeting typical wireless challenges by offering maximum flexibility, performance and reliability.

Primarily designed for residential and commercial applications, the comprehensive Intrunet wireless portfolio reduces installation time and complexity for a wide range of other applications where cabling is restricted or aesthetic considerations prevent the installation of wired detectors. With coverage of up to 300 m in open environments, the portfolio includes motion detectors, a door/window contact, glass break detector and safety devices (smoke and flood detectors), control keypad, remote control and an outdoor siren – all powered by standard Lithium batteries.

The portfolio is based on the well established SiWay and Si2Way wireless protocols and is either supported as standard by Siemens’ intrusion control panels or operated through an interface module or gateway, depending on the system. Most IC60 control panels have inherent SiWay connectivity, with interface modules available for Si2Way devices. All SiWay/Si2Way based detectors and peripherals can be connected with the Intrunet SI series systems through the dedicated E-BUS gateway. The Intrunet SPC series systems are compatible with SiWay devices, either through an optional RF module, an external X-BUS gateway, or an LCD keypad with integrated wireless module.

SiWay is a proven, secure and reliable technology for radio communication thanks to unique device identifiers and outstanding radio range. Based on an 868 MHz radio transmission, SiWay was developed with communication security as a priority. Si2Way is an extension of the SiWay protocol, and enables bi-directional communication with actuators (e.g. sirens). Communications between the devices and the gateway or panel are regularly monitored, with immediate notification of any jamming attempt. The battery levels and radio communication quality of any detector can easily be checked, further increasing system performance and flexibility.

The Intrunet wireless detectors and peripherals benefit from Siemens’ long experience in quality manufacturing and control, and are designed to meet the relevant EN standards.
