Our Warning System
The SDS "Valid"TM Electronic Warning System is designed to deliver the additional evidence needed to prevent the break-in while reassuring you. Our "Valid"TM system achieves this by visually indicating to criminals that your building is protected by SDS plus reassuring you that all is OK before entering.

Our Door and Window Position Sensors
SDS incorporates the highest quality "state of the art" sensors into our Safe-GuardTM 5000 Systems. Our sensors detect the opening of doors and windows beyond a set point. Our sensors will provide protection with your window or door partially open to accommodate fresh air.

Our Glass Protection Sensors
SDS designs our systems utilizing two different technologies.

  • Audio sensing technology - This sensor is tuned to the frequency of breaking glass. These sensors are installed in areas where large open panes of glass exist.
  • Pressure transducer technology - This sensor detects the pressure exerted on the glass and creates an electrical impulse. These sensors apply directly to the glass and provide an excellent visual deterrent.

Our Infrared Motion Sensors
SDS designs our systems utilizing three different application sensors.

  • Secure environment sensors - designed to protect a controlled and unoccupied area such as an office or home.
  • "Pet Conditioned" sensors - designed to protect controlled areas while animals or pets are present.
  • Harsh environment sensors - designed to protect outdoor, unheated, or industrial use areas.
These sensors detect the movement of body heat and differ in their processing. Our representatives will consider your environment as part of the over all system design.

Our Carbon Monoxide Gas Sensors
SDS considers the detection of poisonous gases an important feature of your system design. The most common poisonous gas is carbon monoxide. The source of this gas is typically from fireplaces, woodstoves, and blocked furnace chimneys. Our sensors detect this gas and alert the occupants plus signal our central station. SDS has many different types of gas sensors available to meet your specific needs.

Our Fire Detection Sensors
SDS employees two types of sensor technologies in the detection of fire:

  • Photo electric smoke sensors - Early detection of slow smoldering fires save property and lives.
  • Rate of rise or fixed temperature heat sensors - Heat sensors detect the rapid rise of heat from a fire.
SDS considers the application and environment in the over system design.

Our Water and Temperature Sensors
SDS evaluates the potential threat that temperature drop and water damage pose in your circumstances.

  • Water sensors - Detection of water buildup from overland or sewer and sump pit backup, burst pipes, or failed appliances.
  • Temperature sensors - Detection of temperature drop or rise beyond preset levels caused by heat or air conditioning failure can be responded to well in advance of the damage.
These sensors area available to meet most specific needs.

Our Critical System Monitoring
The SDS Safe-GuardTM 5000 System is capable of monitoring many types of sensors.

  • Freezer/Cooler monitoring - Businesses such as meat and food processing require exact temperature control. Our sensors will detect very precise variations.
  • Sprinkler System monitoring - Water pressure, water flow, and gate valve position require constant monitoring on most sprinkler systems.
  • Boiler System monitoring - Boiler systems must be monitored continually for functions such as water level, flame out, and water pressure.
SDS will provide the required sensors necessary to meet your needs.
