Live in an area with frequent storms that tend to knock out your power? Need a way to ensure that your security system will be unphased by such crazy blackouts and power outages? Then the 2GIG Extended Life Battery Pack might be just the answer that you seek.
Modern Home Security Systems are vulnerable to just one thing: power outages and blackouts. They have all sorts of protection against tampering and hacking, but they cannot function without a power source.
Most advanced security systems come with battery back ups for just those circumstances. These long lasting batteries wait patiently for the power to go out in order to kick in less than a minute after it does. On average, these batteries are able to keep your control panel up and running for an extra 24 hours. This is possible mainly because of the revolution in wireless technology, which leaves each peripheral security device functioning under its own power. That ensures your peripheral security devices are insulated from any power failure, but if the central control panel is not working, the whole system cannot function. But that is where an extra battery pack comes in handy.
The normal battery pack enables a control panel function for around 24 hours after a power failure. If the power outage lasts longer than that, or your have an older, weaker backup battery, you could be out of luck and left defenseless after your backup battery dies. An extended Nickle Metal hydride (NiMH) battery will last much longer, almost double the time of a normal battery pack. Compatible with any 2GIG security system, this battery pack will significantly extend the protection of your security system beyond any power outage.
