camerasTo say that it’s happened again could be considered the ultimate understatement: researchers say some 26 million Americans have reported having packages stolen. And quite often, surveillance cameras capture the thieves in the act.

“These days, you don’t get away with anything,” says Monica Evers, “and you’re not going to get away with it around here.”

DMP Sync SmokeDMP introduces the 1164 Wireless Smoke Detector, a first-of-its-kind wireless smoke detector with synchronized sounders. When any DMP 1164 detects smoke, it signals the panel to command all 1164s to sound the temporal code 3 cadence alarm. This meets NFPA 72 requirement for sounder synchronization in commercial installations; 1164 is also listed for residential installation. 

The DMP 1164 Smoke Detector is a wireless device with integrated synchronized sounder. In installations with multiple smoke detectors, when one 1164 sounds, it signals the panel to command all 1164s to sound. The panel also triggers any other wired strobes and strobe horns. The cadence is dictated by the panel, synchronizing the alarm tones of all wired and wireless devices. The 1164 uses the robust and experienced 900 MHz 2-Way Wireless technology from DMP that has been approved for Commercial Fire applications for several years.

You may have seen the recent story by ABC News regarding the vulnerability of home security systems to hacking, specifically by fooling a system’s wireless devices. The news story presented different threat scenarios which were based on someone using expensive sophisticated engineering tools to fool or hack the systems wireless devices. But those systems in the story relied on one-way narrow band communication at 300 MHz or 433 MHz. We do not install these types of systems due to this threat.

Our wireless technology is not susceptible to this type of attack. DMP 1100 Series Wireless Technology uses 900 MHz frequency hopping; spread-spectrum that is constantly changing the channel used by the system components every 32 milliseconds in a unique pattern to communicate with one another. As a single signal is sent to the receiver, a single acknowledgement is returned, if the acknowledgement is not received it tries again until it gets through. This system makes it virtually impossible for a hacker to find and access our 1100 Series Two-Way wireless.

In addition, DMP wireless technology has UL Commercial Burglary & Fire listings. Earning these listings require the equipment to demonstrate anti-jamming capabilities. This anti-jamming ability prevents someone from blasting the system with loud and harsh RF frequencies that would render the system unable to communicate, without creating an alarm or notification of such jamming activity.

Summer is the peak season for one of the nation’s deadliest weather phenomena–lightning. Though lightning strikes peak in summer, people are struck year round.

In the United States, an average of 51 people are killed each year by lightning, and hundreds more are severely injured. Each year lightning is responsible for 200,000 insurance claims and causes $1 billion in damages. Your home’s plumbing and electrical system are helpful in keeping you safe because if lightning strikes, these systems disperse the energy so you are safer. Of course, this isn’t good news for your electronics and plumbing.

How Lightning Damages Equipment

Lightning DamageAny device that connects to a metallic wire can suffer damage at the hand of lightning. This is true whether the strike is direct to the cable itself or indirect by virtue of inductance. Sometimes no matter what you do, lightning will do irreparable harm.

Concerning a direct hit to equipment, lightning can enter through multiple paths from outside the structure. A good example is a campus environment where there are many buildings.

Lightning also can enter the structure through the public electric bus via outside power lines or one of the many paid subscription services now available. Examples include conventional telephone, cable television networks and satellite dish systems.
