ANSWERS TO YOUR MOST PRESSING QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM ORDER AMOUNT?

The minimum order for all partners with established credit terms is $150. Orders less than $150 can be processed with Visa, Mastercard, or American Express.

WHAT COLORS ARE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR SENSORS

All Terminus sensors are available in white or chocolate brown.

CAN I USE A SP3219 PROCESSOR ON A FENCE SYSTEM?

No. The SP3219 processor is not designed for fence installations. The SP3268 Single Zone or SP3274 Four Zone Processor is required for fence installations. These processors feature zone protection and zone adjustment functionality.

HOW MANY SENSORS CAN I USE FOR EACH ZONE?

Up to 50 Sensors can be deployed for each zone.

CAN SENSORS CONNECT DIRECTLY TO MY ALARM PANEL?

No. It is not recommend to connect sensors directly to an Alarm panel. They should be connected to a Terminus Processor and the processor then connects to the Alarm Panel. The Alarm Panel cannot process sensor information fast enough to determine an alarm condition is present. In addition, Terminus processors provide adjustments for sensitivity and count that are not available on Alarm Panels.

WHAT TYPE OF WIRE CAN I USE?

22 AWG twisted pair wire can be used for distances up to 1500 feet. 18 AWG twisted pair wire is recommended for distances greater than 1500 feet.

WHAT IS A DAMPED SENSOR AND WHERE IS IT USED?

A Damped Sensor has a built in capacitor that makes the sensor less sensitive to vibration which in turn requires higher vibration levels to set it off.  It is used where the sensor placement is subject to normal vibration like air handling units outside of wall. It is also used for fence systems on gates or gate posts where typically the gate is not tight and/or subject to wind vibration.

WHAT IS THE SPACING RECOMMENDATION FOR FENCE SENSORS?

Sensors can be spaced up to 20 feet apart. UL installations (or for maximum security) the spacing recommendation is 10 feet.

WHAT IS THE SPACING FOR NON FENCE SENSORS?

Please refer to the linked Spacing Chart.
