Security products, Ballarat
Sectrol Security continues to invest heavily in research and development into security products and services delivered to its client base in Ballarat and surrounding areas.
Sectrol has designed and manufactured its own control panel and monitoring solutions since the mid 1970s and targeted its concepts at the local market.
Sectrol developed its own direct line monitoring system and client control units for utilisation of the Telstra private-line infrastructure. The first private line product was developed in 1979 and later revised to the microprocessor based PLC16 in 1988 as a private-line version, with an upgrade to radio in 1990.
In 2002 the PLC16 panel was superseded by the new, flexible platform, “Eureka” panel. The Eureka provides alarm indication for up to 32 zones and access control via Prox Readers and/or Key Pads for up to four areas. Predominantly used on the Sectrol and Geelong monitoring Service Radio Network, the Eureka is currently being further developed to operate on the Mobile GSM network.
Sectrol Security and Geelong Monitoring Services continues to market their own group of products and supply other competitive solutions for dialling and non-radio security applications.

These systems are the ‘Rolls Royce’ of detector systems, without the Rolls Royce...
