With a slight edge over the original PowerMax Plus, the KIT 2 PowerMax Wireless Alarm Kit is a very affordable and very advanced home monitoring system, created for the do-it-yourself home owner ready to knit a warm blanket of protection over their property and loved ones. Great for homes, apartments, condos and small offices, this durable home security system is the best starter kit for defense against theft and fire.
The keypad is your command center. It houses all of your settings along with the control panel and siren. How will you know if your alarm has been triggered? This kit allows you to choose if you want an outside alarm company monitoring your home or if you'd prefer to have activity sent directly to you via cell phone, pager or email- or both! If you hire an alarm monitoring organization, the keypad incorporates hands free 2-way voice communication for constant connection between you and them. That means full-time security, 24/7!
Want to arm/disarm your system while you're at work? No problem. Through an internet connection, you can control your alarm system with a few clicks. With the home automation feature, you can also turn on lights and appliances in your home while you're away. Built-in X10 support allows you to activate 15 electronic devices via internet connection.
The big difference between the original PowerMax Plus and the new Kit 2 is the added alarm accessories. This kit includes 3 door and window contacts, a pet immune motion detector and 2 key fobs! For families, these added features make monitoring so much easier and effective - it's no wonder why this is one of the most popular and recommended alarm systems available today.
With these accessories, you get 28 wireless zones of monitoring and 2 hardwired zones. We suggest this product homes, apartments and small offices because that's a perfect amount of coverage for these properties.
Expansion: Your Choice
But the best part: you can keep expanding your system if you want to. Because of internet monitoring, you can add cameras to your system and monitor while you're away! With the POWERLINK video surveillance control unit, you have the option to add up to 4 wired or wireless color cameras (Note: The CAM-2000WL Wireless Color Camera is the only camera that will work with this system). You can also add more contacts, motion detectors and key pads if you want to.

Yes, this is known as latchkey. The feature is also frequently used to inform parents of a child's arrival to the home.

If you have your system programmed to latchkey mode, the PowerMax Plus Kit2 is able to deliver a message to any number, including private numbers, when the system is disarmed by a "latchkey user."
What is private monitoring GSM?
By attaching an optional GSM module to your Powermax Plus Kit2, your alarm signal can be routed to the Central Monitoring Station through a nationwide GSM network. With a GSM module a phone line connection is not necessary, though they are frequently used as back-ups to the phone line.
What does two way voice mean?
Two-way voice communication allows you to communicate with people present in your household through the Powermax Plus Kit2 by simply dialing into the system using an outside phone.
