Each zone in alarm terminology is essentially a slot available for a sensor. If you have an 8 zone alarm system, then you can have up to 8 sensors. A 16 zone alarm system has 16 zones.
A sensor for an alarm system is generally a PIR, a reed switch or a smoke alarm.
Our home alarm systems give you the option to program zones so that sensors assigned to them cause the system to respond differently when they are triggered. All the alarms we offer can handle “Stay at home” mode and “Away mode”. This allows you to have certain areas of the home armed while you are at home. The technician will organise this for you on the day of the install.
