Premier Elite Range

A complete range of commercial grade, expandable, communicating control panels featuring integration compatibility with leading access control, CCTV, home automation and managed alarm-signalling providers. Each Premier Elite control panel shares the same programming platform and peripheral devices, ensuring instant product familiarity across the range.

Typical applications include Banks, Museums, Schools, Hospitals, Luxury Homes & Commercial Buildings, with systems complying to Grade 2 or 3 as required.

Ricochet Mesh Technology

RICOCHET enabled wireless devices receive and repeat wireless transmissions from other devices. The size, scalability and range of the entire system are extended as wireless signalling is no longer limited by point-to-point communications.

The range of a RICOCHET enabled wireless system is greater than previous systems, with multiple devices capable of relaying messages to and from even the most remote locations in a building.

Each RICOCHET enabled device provides signalling routes to and from Texecom Premier Control Panels. Should wireless connection between two devices weaken, the network will 'self-heal' and automatically re-route communications via alternate RICOCHET enabled devices. With more RICOCHET enabled devices installed, the greater the reliability of the system.

With wireless technology in use, this will significantly reduce the time required to perform your installation. Additionally, for any buildings where decoration and features may be a sensitive issue, this allows the sensors to be mounted in position with no associated cabling issues.

High Reliability Sensors

Texecom produce a large range of sensors, suitable for various installation environments.

The Premier Elite range of sensors meet Grade 2 or Grade 3 security, depending on model. With features such as dual technology detection, anti-masking, Triple End-of-Line (T-EOL) signalling, Temperature Compensation, Digital Pulse Count & wall and ceiling tamper detection, you can ensure that your sensors will provide reliable, dependable detection for your alarm zones.

Access Control Integration

Paxton are a Texecom integration partner, allowing for direct integration of their access control systems with a Texecom alarm system so as to provide a complete, integrated site security and control solution.

This provides features such as arming / disarming the alarm system by door-access fob, specifying which users are entitled to disarm the system and also blocking access through doors whilst the alarm system is active.

As both a Paxton and Texecom Partner, we are able to design and install solutions to suit your specific requirements, no matter how extensive the site. Please see our access control page for further information on these services.
