Honeywell's 5870API Wireless Asset Protection Sensor is an ideal way to guard against theft in both residential and commercial applications. The unit easily affixes to virtually any valuable requiring protection within a home or business, including paintings, flat screen TVs and other electronics, family heirlooms, safes, machinery, office equipment and more. The unit employs an accelerometer - similar to those used in automobiles to detect impact and deploy air bags - to recognize movement. Dealers can program the devices to send alarm signals to security panels, alerting guards and other security personnel or central stations when the protected object is being moved. The sensor is fully supervised to monitor for low-battery, tamper (front case cover and removal from asset) and trouble conditions.
