Autowatch 650 Caravan Alarm System
Your caravan is a significant investment and it makes sense to protect it. Unfortunately caravans are popular targets for thieves, as not only are they valuable in their own right, but they are often filled with expensive contents. So wherever you keep your caravan, you need to ensure that it is safe and secure.
The Autowatch 650 Security System is really simple to use and is designed to give you years of trouble free operation. Made with the highest quality components and using state of the art technology, you can be assured that your caravan is well protected.
BASIC REMOTE OPERATION
The Autowatch 650 Caravan Alarm is supplied with two robust four button remotes and two touchkeys. The remotes offer arm, silent arm, disarm, silent disarm, panic and awning light functions. The touchkeys offer arm, disarm and programming functions.
Arming is either by pressing the Arming button on the remote or by pressing the touch key into the receptacle once and arming is acknowledged by a single chirp of the siren.
Disarming is either via a press the Disarming button or press the touchkey in the receptacle once and disarming is acknowledged by a double chirp of the siren.
SILENT ARM/DISARM VIA THE REMOTE
Whenever you arm/disarm the Autowatch system, you get a single or double chirp from the siren. Late at night this chirp may be deselected via the remote by simply pressing the lower button below followed by the Arm button or the lower button followed by the Disarm button. The chirp can be permanently deselected in program mode if required.
Silent arming is done by pressing the lower button on the remote first followed by the arming button. This will arm the system without any chirps. Disarming is similar. Press the Disarm button on the remote
The Autowatch 650 Alarm system comes with two touch keys and these can be used to override the system as an emergency backup.
PANIC ALERT FUNCTION
The system has a panic feature via the small back button on the remote as standard, but the option of hard wired panic button/s that can be installed. Both panic options are independent of the alarms status and will work when the alarm is armed or disarmed.
P.I.R. SENSOR (SUPPLIED AS STANDARD)
The Autowatch 650 comes standard with an intelligent wireless P.I.R. sensor with a transmission range of up to 30m. It relies on a double pulse activation to prevent false alarm triggers and has up to two years battery life. The alarm system can have a combination of up to twelve wireless sensors programmed into the "Internal" or "External" zones collectively. This can give better coverage if you have separated rooms in your caravan.
HOME/INTERNAL ZONE ISOLATION
If you double press the Arm button when arming, it will isolate the "Home" zone and only arm the "Away" zone, allowing you to move around inside without triggering the alarm.
WARNING STATUS LED INFORMATION
The warning status LED is built into the receptacle and serves as a visual deterrent and shows you what state the alarm is in.
Armed - LED three flash and a pause repeated.
Disarmed - LED off.
Main battery low indication - when disarmed the LED Flashes once every five seconds.
Back Up battery low indication - LED flashes twice every five seconds.
SMART POWER USAGE
The Autowatch 650 has a very low power consumption of <5mA when armed to ensure maximum battery life.
EXTERNAL LIGHT - MAIN BATTERY LOW INDICATION
Along with the status LED indication of low battery, the awning/outside light also offers an indication when the main battery is low. Instead of switching on for 30 seconds when you arm/disarm the system, it only switches on for 5 seconds.
TEST MODE/WARN AWAY SETTING
If you want to test the alarm, you push and hold the arm button for 3 seconds until you hear the second conformation chirp. This then arms both zones but will only give a short beep instead of the full 30 second cycle when the sensor is triggered.
OUTPUTS FOR PAGING OR TRACKING
The Autowatch alarm system has a dedicated pager output that triggers when the alarm is sounding that can be linked to a GSM (Mobile Phone) pager or a GPS tracking system.
For a caravan you can have up to 4 leg sensors fitted to prevent the stabiliser legs from being lifted. These are available in both hard wired or wireless formats.
BATTERY BACK UP FOR THE ALARM
The alarm system can use a 7 A/hr back up battery to keep the system running if the main battery goes at. NB This is for back up only and should not be the main source of supply.
WIRELESS MAGNETIC REED SWITCH
For additional security, wireless magnetic reed switches can be added to external lockers, windows and the habitation door. The 650 Caravan alarm can use up to a total of 12 wireless sensors. These can be of any combination.
BATTERY BACKUP SIREN
A battery backup siren can be added to the 650 alarm system for extra protection.
