Mobeye Argos – Battery Powered Wireless GSM Alarm
The Mobeye Argos Battery Powered GSM Alarm i200 is a stand-alone PIR alarm system. Easy to use, flexible and highly reliable. The ideal system for locations without power and temporary security applications. The i200 is built upon the success of the Mobeye i110 GSM PIR, and it adds additional features for greater flexibility.
The Mobeye Argos is a complete, compact and self monitored GSM alarm system, with a full range of options. It works completely autonomously on batteries with a built-in GSM dialer, PIR motion detector and temperature sensor. When a burglar alarm is detected, the Argos will send an alarm by SMS/phone call, optionally a siren sounds. The contacts that receive the phone call can start the listen-in function to hear what is happening locally. There is also a possibility to confirm the alarm message so the device won’t call the other contacts afterwards.
The Mobeye i200 features two additional inputs for floating sensors, two relay outputs to (optionally, remotely) control devices and choice between battery operated and powered externally.
Battery Operated GSM Alarm System
The Mobeye Argos is a battery-operated alarm system. Due to extremely low power design, the supplied batteries have a long life time; it works over 1 year on a set of batteries, even at a daily “keep-alive” message. The applied batteries are ‘standard’ CR123 batteries (standard for alarm systems and cameras). It sends a timely battery-low SMS message.
However, external power can be used by connecting a mains adapter or any 9-32VDC power supply which gives some additional advantages, such as a power failure alarm in case of a power failure.
A SIM card from any phone provider can be placed (normal size), possibly pre-paid.
Optionally, the Mobeye Argos can be connected to the web-based Mobeye Internet Portal to forward (alarm) messages to additional numbers and mail accounts. A name can be set to accompany the message. The portal also monitors ‘keepalive’ messages.
Check our PIR (low power) (MPIR-LP) motion sensor if you need a second motion detector and still want to use the Mobeye i200 as battery operated system.
