6102-025 Alarm Interface Module (Duress, Remote Disable, Tamper, Contact Monitoring)
The Sargent and Greenleaf alarm interface module and S&G safe lock can both be powered from the safe’s alarm system or the lock’s operating battery. The Alarm Interface Module is a VdS Class C device for use in intruder alarm systems, approval Reference: G111087 and features remote disable (12 volt signal to the module disables lock function), duress (silent alarm), and tamper indication (module cover or any switch connected to the module).
The Sargent and Greenleaf duress module can be a life-saver. In situations where an authorised safe user is forced to open a safe (during a hold-up), it’s possible to alert authorities without alerting the attacker at the same time. Simply by adding 1 to the first or last digit of a working lock code can send a duress notification to a connected central monitoring station. The safe opens normally, keeping the “silent signal” a secret from the perpetrator.
A bolt position indicator (BPI) means your safe lock knows when its blocking bolt is extended and retracted and can share this information with your alarm system. The B.P.I. can even be used to shunt your safe’s alarm circuit when the safe is unlocked with a valid code. The B.P.I. can also be used to activate a notification and video link to notify safe openings, allowing you to see a safe being opened in real time.
Tamper alerts can reveal “insider” attempts to compromise your safe’s security system. Door and boltwork cover switches can be monitored 24/7 by a connected central station, helping to keep your trusted employees trusted.
Your safe lock can be prevented from operating when a low-voltage signal is sent to it. The enable/disable signal can come from any remote location. A disable signal can also be set to be removed when a building alarm panel is deactivated.
A one-wire circuit connecting to safe door contacts makes sure that a safe cannot lock unless the door is properly closed. This prevents employees from locking safe doors open either for convenience or more questionable purposes.
