Powermax Alarms


Visonic manufacture a webserver module - the Powerlink which is a small unit fitted inside the Powermax Control Panels.  The Powerlink enables the Powermax control panel to connect to the internet.  The Powerlink firstly connects to a router via an ethernet cable and the router connects to the Internet.

Once connected, the Powermax alarm system can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection.  In addition to setting/unsetting the alarm system, its status can be viewed and cameras can be attached to give real-time video.  The system can also be set-up to send emails when events occur such as setting/unsetting actions and of course alarm conditions.  If it is an alarm condition the email can also include a short video clip of the time of the alarm.

Sounds great, but there are some serious limitations regarding the use of cameras with the Powerlink.  Firstly, the range of cameras that will work with the Powerlink is very limited and although Visonic do have a list of compatible cameras, actually sourcing any of them is very difficult.  Secondly, the Powerlink is not a very powerful webserver and as such its bandwidth is limited and it can only handle low resolution cameras.

Dedicated CCTV

In our opinion a Dedicated CCTV system is a far better option.  It will give you high definition controlled recordings, can be tied into your alarm, can send you email alerts, and can be viewed anywhere in the world in real-time.  For an insight into the field of HD CCTV visit our '
