About PowerG(R) Wireless Technology
PowerG combines several field-proven, advanced wireless technologies, like those used in cellular networks and Bluetooth, with the highly reliable AES encryption method. The greatest innovation in PowerG is having these technologies operate on non-rechargeable batteries while still keeping all devices connected and online. When used in residential or commercial security alarm systems, this combination of technologies delivers the unmatched reliability, robustness and transmission range we have come to expect from modern wireless applications - this time on batteries. In addition, PowerG provides numerous advantages for professional installers, central monitoring stations and end-users alike.
PowerMaster-10 G2 Features:
- Two-way communication ensures there are no lost alarms
- Transmission range is far greater than the industry standard enabling repeater-free installations even in large premises*
- Extended battery life in almost all PowerG peripherals - between 4-8 years for typical use
- All devices are configured from the panel - no hardware switches and no need to re-open the peripherals once closed
- Visible signal quality indication shown on the device enables the installer to choose the optimal location without having to walk to the panel during mounting
- Customized configuration templates enable configuration of the devices collectively instead of individually
- Diagnostic tool indicates RF link quality based on the previous 24 hours' statistics, immediately displaying problems and enabling installation verification
- Powerful tools for central monitoring stations such as remote control of all peripherals, remote walk tests and measurements of link quality of all wireless connections in the connected premises
- Multiple frequency channels (up to 50) using Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology overcome interference to wireless communication
- Communication is protected by the proven AES-128 encryption algorithm to protect against sophisticated intruders, "code grabbing" and message substitution
- Link Message collisions are eliminated with TDMA synchronized communication technology similar to WiMAX, GSM and
- Bluetooth to TDMA in the glossary
- Devices dynamically optimize their route to the control panel using available repeaters according to changes in the environment
*Measured line-of-site transmission range: 2000m/6500ft @ 8m/24ft, 750m/2500ft @ 2m/6.5ft

- READ THE MANUAL BEFORE PURCHASE!!!! If you are comfortable with ...Review by Peter
HSS - a few suggestions:
1. You get hammered with online reviews of your tech support hold times. Why not have some sort of appointment setup rather than leave people in queue for 1+ hours at a time?
2. Pre-program option. Send the units out pre-programmed. I know, some folks want ultimate flexibility - but non-installers simply don't have a need to learn how to program all the options this unit has.
3. Fast-start sheet. The installation guide has dozens of decision trees for all sorts of detailed configuration items. These may be important for specialized situations, but a Fast Start sheet would prioritize the most important functions for all users.
4. User Testing. These manuals are setup for installers, not end users who rarely program security systems - there is specialized language that is nonsense to lay-people. Clearly, these devices are designed by security geeks for security professionals. Next to an installation manual is designed for lay-people, suggest you drag some non-industry friends in to see how they do installing stuff like this. Once iSmart gets their act together, they will eat your lunch with DIY'ers 2.0 who were tremendously frustrated by experiences like Visonic.
I'm sorry, I just can't recommend this product. It's fine once it's setup, but getting there is way too problematic. Sure, dismiss me for being a tech-dunce, but what if I'm not? (Posted on 12/21/13)

The install was a very simple from start to finish. Anyone from the company that we dealt with could not have been any nicer, and we would Highly recommend the Home Security Store!
