6500-24 24 Zone Digital Annunciator

6500-24 24 Zone Digital Annunciator


The new system provides more reporting and tamper monitoring, even in access mode. Door status is displayed in both access and secure modes. Line tampering is also reported in both modes.


Use the existing wires and sensors. To upgrade to the higher security, add a resistor to the existing sensors. More security with no new cabling required.
