Introducing the next generation of wireless security, Texecom’s RICOCHET mesh networking wireless technology delivers more performance than any other wireless security system.
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.
A RICOCHET enabled wireless device will use 1000 times less energy than an equivalent hard wired product.
All RICOCHET wireless communications are protected by sophisticated encryption algorithms.
The most advanced diagnostics tool is the PC-based RICOCHET Monitor software. This software, when installed on a laptop and connected to a RICOCHET enabled wireless expander, provides greater visibility and control over the wireless system performance than ever before.
From a simple, intuitive menu screen all device status is available at a glance, with clear graphics hilighting signalling performance. Device attributes can be configured and distributed across the network in seconds thanks to an innovative ‘global poll’ function that communicates to all devices within moments.
Where the RICOCHET Monitor software really excels is with the graphical representation of the mesh-networking system. The system literally ‘comes alive’ when the graphical function is selected. Each device is shown on screen, in real time, placed according to where the device communicates across the network. It is instantly visible and clear which routes communication signals are taking the overall network performance is demonstrated.
With the power of the graphical user interface, even complex systems can be diagnosed simply, providing confidence that the communication platform is robust and reliable.
