Siemens is a global leader in state-of-the-art security systems. The original SPC range covered controllers, panel enclosures and accessories.

Renowned for their robustness and ease of installation, their styling broke the mould in what was a very conservative market.

State-of-the-art Alarm device

The Product

Synecco Studio has an extensive track record in successfully launching new products that are the first in their industry under new or revised standards.

This hybrid alarm system was the first of its kind to take full advantage of the then new European wireless frequency 868MHz. This allowed it to be expanded in up to 512 zones and its components mixed and matched with ease.

More specifically this was the first full range to comply with the newly introduced European Standards for Intruder Alarm Systems EN 50131 Grade 3. This Medium to High security grade is designed to protect the system from intruders conversant with alarm systems and access to a comprehensive range of tools.

The Process

These devices were styled to fit into modern office environments as well as to convey their high-tech credentials in a pre-smartphone era of ever shrinking mobile phone designs.

Ergonomics and Human Factors studies identified a change in attitude in users that allowed the size of the buttons to shrink to accommodate a range of large colour screens.

Designed for Regulatory Compliance, and supported by our thorough Design for Manufacture approach, its tamper-proof features all worked efficiently without adding cost or complexity.
