Small Business Self Monitoring Kit
We have put this kit together for customers who own a small business and want to monitor their alarm system for free through an internet connection.
With this Hills alarm kit, you will be able to monitor staff arming and disarming the alarm, after hours alarm burglar notifications, alarm tampers, power outages and test reports if required.
The kit contains
1 x Hills Reliance R8 alarm system panel kit: includes the power supply, battery, cabinet, 8 zone Hills panel, 8 zone vertex keypad, internal screamer and outside siren/ strobe box.
1 x Hills Comnav ethernet module pre-installed in the cabinet and programmed to Hills panel.
1 x Free phone tech support to configure once installed at your business.
The kit is designed to upgrade an existing alarm system by replacing the main control panel, and keypad with sirens/ strobes "as usually your old siren box is rusty and causing issues with tampers" to existing wiring and alarm devices. If you require new alarm devices to go with the kit, you can find these in the related products at the bottom of the page or choose from upgrade options available above the add to cart button at the right of this page
Once this kit is installed and connected to your premises internet modem, you will be able to access the Hills Comnav through a computers web browser on the local network. This will allow you to configure usernames and pins. The R8 System has 8 User Pins available. Setup the Comnav for remote monitoring and control through the Hills Comnav app ULTRA CONNECT.
Issues to be noted
Please note that if you have a complicated server network configuration with high-level network security in place, you will require an IT professional to configure your network for the Comnav to be accessible. But from my experience after installing at least 50 of these systems, it would be rare that you need an IT professional.
I should note that the installation does require a data network cable to be installed from where your internet modem is located to the metal control panel box where the brains of your alarm system are located.
It is a good idea to install a UPS "Uninterrupted Power Supply" and only connect your internet modem to it. This will ensure that in the event of a power outage you will still receive messages from the alarm system as the alarm and Comnav are protected by battery backup but the modem which allows transfers of alarms to you will be powered down.
