The keypad gives you full, instant control over your system, and the POWERMAX+ KIT2 integrates the stylish keypad right into the control panel.

It should come as no surprise that this is one of the most popular and recommended alarm systems on the market today.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the major difference between the PowerMax Plus and PowerMax Plus Kit2?
The only significant difference between the two Powermax Kits is that the Powermax Plus Kit 2 includes an extra sensor and key fob.

How loud is 85 DB?
Eighty-five decibels sounds about as loud as an alarm clock.

What is the range of the key fob?
The keyfob has a reported range of up to 150 feet.

What does "hardwired zones" mean?
This means that non-wireless accessories including sensors, keypads and sirens can be attached to and used with your Powermax Plus Kit2.

Is there a code I can input to alert the police of an emergency without a potential intruder knowing I've done so?
Yes, this is known as latchkey. The feature is also frequently used to inform parents of a child's arrival to the home.

What is private number dialed?
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 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. Unlike regular telephone conversations, in which you can interject a few words while the other party speaks, this system allows one way speech at a time.

This is a very good system. Easy to install, but I needed help with programming. Tech Support guided me through everything, politely and patiently, and I have 18 sensors. It works great and is reliable. I am very pleased with this system. Home Security Store is the way to go for products, pricing, and support.

Great system! Installing takes a little bit a learning, but once you understand how to navigate the setup menu its a breeze. I love that you can program multiple phone numbers to alert if the alarm is tripped. You can set it to call your cell phone, a friend, and/or the local police. If your robbed and can't get to your phone to call the cops for whatever reason the system will do it for you, without having to pay $40 a month for monitoring.

I have had this system for 3 years. unlike most I bought a security system before my house got broken into. At the same time a buddy of mine bought the same one. He loves his too. I remember when I first bought it, it was so easy to setup. ALl components are wireless and I was able to set it all up on the coffee table while watching the dvd. then go around the house and double side tape everything up. I yet have had to change batteries in three years, my buddy has. I just bought another wireless motion detector for the motor home, outside siren and one new keyfob. We have a cat and have never had any false calls. ok so I don't have a home phone. Through one of the calling card companies i found a card that was one hundered dollars. This puts you in the plantuim group. So the minutes roll over each year for adding dollars to the card. It awesome. I have spent 30 dollars in three years to have this baby online. Thats what most people spend in one month. I recommend this to everyone i talk to. Problem is once someones house gets broken into. Which happens a lot where I live. They panic and go with one of the companies that charge 30 a month.

Powermax is performing admirably for almost one year. Tech support was great and walked me through the programming process and had a large number of sensors. I am extremely pleased with the features and reliability of Powermax and its accessories. Tech support is always ready to help with a customer's problems as they arise. Great sysem, great price, and great support. Homesecuritystore.com will be my go-to security store.

Good security system and very easy to install. Telephone support was outstanding when I encountered a problem initializing the alarm system. I was on hold for 10 minutes, but I can live with that. Thanks Home Security Store. Anthony

I bought the Visonic POWERMAX+ KIT2 Powermax Plus Wireless Alarm Kit about a month ago, after setting it up, the motion detector was detecting movement even when it was disarmed, called customer service, never picked up the phone, tried to return the item and was sent back to me because it was already installed so whatever you do, if you want to try it, DO NOT INSTALL IT.

I have had the system for two and a half years now and it works fine. I have the outside siren/strobe and five motion sensors. along with switch contacts at key locations. I also connected the X10 interface which flashes all the exterior lights and some interior lights. Lots of noise and lights. The neighbors know and call the cops. I do plan to go to central station in the future. The only draw back is the phone interface. The system would be perfect if there were an interface to cell phones to do everything from panels after entering a security code.

I have had this system for about 4 years now. I love it. DVD does walk you thru it with ease. Love the key fobs. Feel much safer with this unit installed. Very loud have not hooked up outside siren yet,but planning on it in near future. Cannot beat what you get for the price. Own a home in another state got one of the brand name systems have had more problems with that than ever have with the powermax plus.

I've had this system for over a year now and can't recommend it highly enough...great system!! I liked it so much I bought a second one for my Mother's house also. You can purchase this system without fear of getting burnt. The HSS and Visonic are a great combo.

Highly Recommend...I purchased this kit a couple weeks ago and it was easy to install. The setup was simple and straight forward. If your looking for a security system, look no further.

Beware. While this system is GSM capable, the optional GSM module for the Powermax+ does not seem to be avaialable anymore and you will need to upgrade to a powermax pro instead if that is something you want to use. Otherwise, system is great

I have had my system for a year now and it works great. The initial setup was a bit tedious but got through it. Just wish there was an app for my android that would help with the dial-up functions. When the alarm goes off at 3AM and you are attempting to fix the issue it is hard since it is only an occasional use of this function, remembering the codes and sequences to check status. I will, in the future, setup the central station feature.

This is a followup to a review I wrote in September. After having my Powermax installed for about a month I had a problem with the unit that I could not resolve. I called the Store Support Line and after a 10 minute wait I was connected to Jeffery, one of the techs. He was excellent. Many online stores say they will provide tech support for their products and more times than not the support is lousy. This is not the case for the Home Security Store. Jeffery was very patient and knowledgeable as he helped me to identify and fix the problem with the system. I was probably on the phone with him for an hour but we finally fixed the problem. I could not be happier with the support I got and highly recommend the store for your security needs.

I purchased the Powermax+ a couple of weeks ago and recently installed it. I am 68 and have average skills with computers and electronics. I have never installed a security system before this installation. After recieving the package in the mail I read the Installer's Instruction Manual and got very little from it. When I purchased the Powermax+ I was greatly influenced by the fact that the package contained an Instructional Video to help with the installation. I started watching it and was pleased to see that it was designed to take the novice installer, like me, through the installation process, step by step. By following the video it took me about 4 hours to get the system "setup" on my card table. The instructions tell you to completely setup the Powermax and all its components before actually installing them in their respected locations. This setup process did not go without problems. The video helped a lot but does not provide a lot of help in resolving problems. The installer's book was of little help in this area also. I was able to get the additional help I needed to resolve my issues by going online and looking at other Powermax Installers Manuals. I never had to call the Home Security Store. The installation of the components in my house took about 6 hours. After the complete installation the System is working as it should, but it has only been online for a few days. I do recommend the Powermax+ with the Installation Video. I know I would not have been able to install the system without it unless I recieved a lot of help from the store staff. I rated the Powermax+ four stars instead of five because the manuals are written for people who are either professional installers or a lot smarter than me. The authers simply ommit information with no explanation of what terms mean. Yet the installer needs this information to make decisions.
