Wired System Option
A fully wired system offers the convenience and cost savings of no batteries to change. When a home is in the construction stage this is usually the recommended install option. In most cases Cyclone can also wire a fully built home, or offer a hybrid wired/wireless system that fits your specific needs. All contacts are connected to a panel that is located in an out of the way location, and the system is controlled through a wired keypad in an entry way and ordinarily an additional keypad is located in the master bedroom.

Wireless Panel Option
A basic system we install is a primarily motion detector system. It consists of door contacts on all entry level and basement doors, motions placed strategically throughout the first floor and basement, two keypads (one in the mud room and one in the master bedroom), as well as an interior siren. This system is designed for basic protection from intruders. Any additional options can be easily added to the system.
A step up from the motion detector system is the full perimeter option, which has contacts on all entry-level doors and on each first floor and basement window. Two keypads (one in the mud room and one in the master bedroom), as well as an interior siren are included. Motion detectors can also be integrated into a full perimeter system for added protection from intruders. Additional options can easily be added to the system.
Local codes require homes to have smoke detectors in the main foyer, the second floor hall, in each bedroom and in the basement. These smoke detector provide audible alert to occupants when there is a fire in your home, however these smoke detectors cannot be incorporated into a security system. Cyclone’s smoke & carbon monoxide detectors are integrated into your security system to help protect your home when you are away, and notify emergency services automatically when smoke is detected. Cyclone can also install heat detectors in attics, mechanical rooms and garages for additional protection. Cyclones monitored smoke and carbon monoxide detectors provide the highest level of protection for your home and family.
Cyclone can also install and configure a security camera system for your home. A single camera could show guests entering your driveway, or multiple cameras throughout your home and property can be configured to be viewed on a television or live-streamed remotely to via computer or smartphone app. Alarm/motion triggered events or continuous video can be recorded onto local DVR/NVR or to a cloud based server for review.

All Cyclone Security Systems can be monitored by utilizing our 24/7 monitoring service. With a monitored security system, if an alarm event occurs, a live operator will call the house and then dispatch the authorities when necessary. Most of our systems are monitored over a cell phone line insuring uninterrupted coverage in the case of a cut phone line or network issue with a VOIP line. Monitoring personnel keep in constant contact with Cyclone Home Systems and alert us of all signals they receive.
An added benefit of having your security system monitored are the panic buttons located on each keypads. These buttons can easily be tripped simply by holding them down to send a signal to the appropriate authorities- fire, police, or medical.
The system also has a built in duress code. Should you ever be followed into your home by an intruder, you can enter this duress code which looks to the intruder like you have disarmed the system. In reality, monitoring personal have dispatched the authorities and they will be on their way to your home immediately.
In addition, Cyclone’s 24-hour emergency cell phone line provides our security customers with around the clock support and service by one of our own licensed technicians.
