alarm systems for renters

''This project started as a way for me to teach students to see andunderstand the ways that engineering can be used for the greater good,''said Kumar Yelamarthi, the professor and project leader. ''We wanted to dosomething that would help people and make our campus more accessible. '' During the spring term, Yelamarthi and five senior engineering studentstested the cane, which is equipped with Radio Frequency Identificationtechnology, similar to what retailers put on products to keep them frombeing stolen. The Smart Cane contains an ultrasonic sensor that is paired with aminiaturenavigational system inside a messenger style bag worn across the shoulder. For the test, the students installed identification tags between twobuildings on the campus in Mount Pleasant, Mich. A speaker located on thebag strap gave audio alerts when the system detected an obstacle and toldthe user which direction to move. Students wearing glasses that simulate visual impairment tested the cane. The students also created a vibrating glove to assist those who are bothvisually and hearing impaired. Yelamarthi said it's one of the first outdoor applications of RFID and saidhe plans for students in upcoming classes to further refine the systemwhilehe seeks grants to speed the research. The next step probably involves using the system in a wider area. Down theline, Yelamarthi wants to work toward integrating the Smart Cane's datawithGPS.

Most burglars only break glass in order to unlock a door or window. Then, when they open the door or window, a standard transmitter will detect the entry. Next, decide what kind of control panel you want. There are two types: A “cabinet style” panel consists of a keyboard that mounts near the door and a circuit board that mounts near your phone interface. A “self contained” panel is a single unit that mounts near the door. This one part panel is easier to install but has one weakness. An intruder entering through the door can tear it off the wall before the panel finishes notifying the monitoring service. With a two part panel, the circuit board keeps working even if the keypad is disconnected. With either type of panel, you’ll need a special phone jack called an “RJ31X” to connect the panel to your phone lines. You won’t find professional quality alarm equipment at a local electronics retailer. Instead, fire up your computer and search for “security alarms” or “security systems.
