How does Wayne Alarm set themselves apart?

“Advanced Protection Logic (APL)”:

For years now, wireless “self-contained” security systems have been on the market. They offer a solution to homeowners and business owners that didn’t think of installing a security system when either building or renovating a space, and consolidate many components of a conventional alarm into the size of a conventional security keypad. The keypads to these systems are also the brain of the system, as well as the communicator to a central station. They function using radio frequency and send critical data to a central station via a cell network, phone lines or over the customer’s internet. They have evolved over the years to become as reliable as a traditional wired security system that has the keypad wired to a control panel (brain) and communicator in a remote area such as a basement or closet.

Unlike wired systems, wireless “self-contained” security systems take out the mystery of labor costs to install and even take out the inevitability of notching holes to get wires where they need to be. They offer the latest technology and are made to be user friendly. However, since the release of the wireless “self-contained” alarm systems, there has always been a hole in the design: “Smash and Grab” was the concept behind getting around these systems since their release, which was a reason why Wayne Alarm did not sell or install the earliest verions of these systems. “Smash and Grab” involves the entry/exit points of the system. These are the areas that are put on delay so that the homeowner or business owner initiates a countdown to disarm the system when returning home from being away, so that it does not instantly set off and send an alarm signal to the central station, but initiates a countdown so that if it isn’t the customer opening that door, the system will set off after a short delay (15 seconds – 2 minutes). A “smart” burglar would open the entry/exit point, run over to the self-contained keypad/control panel before the countdown ended, and smash it into pieces, destroying the brain of the system and, therefore, no signal is sent to the central station, customer nor the police.

This was an industry-wide problem with self-contained security systems for years until Honeywell came up with “Advanced Protection Logic” (APL). This is an additional optional service that Wayne Alarm subscribes to through Honeywell, the leader in the industry. Wayne Alarm pays a premium for every account that has APL applied to it. The concept is basic, but it closes up this loophole that has existed for years with these systems. The idea is as follows: When the system is armed, and the entry door is opened, instantly a signal is sent to the central station saying “entry door was opened”. If the central station does not receive a second signal, saying that the system was disarmed (it waits 45 seconds after the normal delay time), it is automatically sent in as an alarm signal, and the proper procedure is taken after that. This was the reason that Wayne Alarm never sold “self-contained” alarm systems until APL was offered. That way, becoming a Wayne Alarm customer, is joining a family of dedicated professionals that have a common goal of providing the best possible protection with the best technology destroying the brain of the system and, therefore, no signal is sent to the central station, customer nor the police.
