Securing paintings 2

infraSpot is placed on the wall by the middle of the back of the painting to prevent sabotage.

Freestanding objects

ultraSpot can be placed in the corner of the showcase and registers if the object is moved.

Flexibility

inSpot can receive (wired) input from many different detectors, e.g. load cells, AIR detectors, spring contacts, magnet switches and tilt switches.

Compact and discreet

Most of the detectors are not much bigger than a matchbox and no thicker than three matches, which makes discreet placement easy.

About the detectors

Piccolo® detectors emits an ‘OK signal’ every 4 minutes. The system monitors these and sends an alert if a detector has failed to report back for a period of time. This can be due to poor transmission conditions or battery failure.

When the detectors send an alarm, they emit several signals over a period of 10 seconds for optimal security in the transmission of alarms.

In case of battery running low, the sensors emits an alert.

In case of poor transmission conditions or long distances, inserting a repeater (007800) can be useful.
