Protect Your Your Home and Family with this Wireless Security System with Built-In GSM Cell Connection

Visonic 0-101312 PowerMax Express 211G Security System with Internal GSM Modem
You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a professionally installed and maintained security system in order to keep your family safe. Visonic’s PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System is a full-featured, customizable security alarm system that connects in a fraction of the time of hardwired systems and includes everything you’ll need to get your home security started. No complicated wiring or cabling is required! Just plug the main unit in, mount the wireless sensors in the zones you want to protect, and you’re ready to program the system.

Easy to Program and Control Securely
Programming is easy, using the large, backlit buttons and the LCD screen. You have the option of testing or arming the system at a predefined time, and the siren can squawk when armed or disarmed if you so choose. The PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System supports 28 wireless zones and one hardwired zone and a 100-event log. Additional features include a silent/audible panic alarm, two-way voice/listen in enabling options, and even voice response.

Internet Connectivity via Optional PowerLink
Verify the status of lighting devices and reprogram security functions anywhere and any time by adding the PowerLink2 Broadband IP Module. Whether you’re at work or on vacation, you can easily access the PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System via SMS, e-mail, mobile, and regular phones, or a secure web application.

Built-in Siren and Phone Dialer
When it detects an alarm signal from one of the wireless sensors, the alarm system blasts an 85dB siren that not only alerts your family, but also sends would-be thieves fleeing. In addition, you can program it to call any private phone number (i.e.: a friend or neighbor, your office, your wireless phone, etc.) and play a pre-recorded message in your own voice if connected to your standard telephone or to a cellular network via its built-in GSM Modem (SIM card and activation required). It doesn’t even need its own dedicated phone line! It also supports 24-hour monitoring by commercial alarm monitoring personnel, who can dispatch police, fire or medical response (depending on the type of alert it receives). It can even call you for non-alarm events. For example, do you want to know that your kids arrived home safely from school? The security system can call you at the office to let you know that your child successfully disarmed the alarm. Read more

Smarthome DIY: Stop Heat and AC From Escaping Through Your Fireplace

Tools Needed:
1. Flashlight
2. Safety Glasses
3. Chimney Balloon (with clear inflation tube)



1.  Wear safety glasses, since the chimney can be a dirty place.  Use a flashlight to re-identify the fluke that you measured for your Chimney Balloon.  This location should have parallel walls, be low enough to touch with your hand, and not obstructed by the damper or other hardware.

2.  Partially inflate your Chimney Balloon before you install it, so it’s like a floppy pillow.

3. Grab the Chimney Balloon by the handle valve and hold it aloft in the fireplace so the balloon portion is in the area you want to plug.  If needed, crowd the corners of the balloon into place with your finger.  Inflate the Chimney Balloon the rest of the way so it is snug and in place, and close the valve on the handle.

4. Take the red Reminder Card and put it on your wood grate or by your gas tab to remind yourself that the Chimney Balloon is installed.

The Chimney Balloon is reusable, so any time you wish to use your fireplace, you can open the tab to the Chimney Balloon and remove it so you can use your fireplace again.  When you’re done enjoying your fireplace, you can reuse your Chimney Balloon.
