The Control Panel looks like a TV set-top box with a flat touch panel on top and curved bottom. The power switch, tamper switch, and built-in siren are located at the bottom. At the back are two phone jacks (in & out), power port and a wired sensor interface.

The half cylinder shape wireless motion detector has a detection window and LED light at the front. It is wireless and powered by 2x AA batteries.

The wireless door/window sensor looks like a soap being sliced. It takes an AA battery and can last for 8-12 months.

The wireless remote control looks like a car remote control with 4 buttons: arm, disarm, stay arm, and emergency call. It has two LED indicators.

How does it work?

The control panel is the brain of the whole wireless alarm system to communicate with all wireless sensors. You can control the control panel via voice-guided keypad, remote control and telephone (call system phone number).

When an alarm occurs, the built-in siren will hoot loudly (up to 110db) and auto-dialling the pre-set phone numbers. (Yes, cutting the phone wire will trigger the alarm, too!)

For your information, 110db is as loud as a riveting machine or a car horn at 1 meter! It is 16x as loud as a vacuum cleaner (70 dB).

If the alarm is triggered for 5 seconds, VEDO S1 will send a voice message to your phone number to inform which alarm zone has been triggered. You can set up to 5 emergency numbers.

In the case of a blackout, the control panel’s built-in backup battery (7.4V/1000mA) can support up to 16 hours and will call your phone when running low on battery.
