Genesis uses sophisticated signal processing and optics to minimise nuisance alarms caused by the sun, shadows and reflections.

The Genesis detector is now well established in the market and recognised as a reliable and sturdy product with excellent wireless communication capabilities. A>D conversion and a powerful micro controller ensure accurate reliable detection under challenging conditions. Strong and durable, the enclosure is made from 3mm thick Polycarbonate and stainless steel locking bolts for added strength. Battery life is around two years which is achieved by a special regulator that maintains optimum performance while the batteries are running down.

The new 3020 detector has the additional feature of twin dual element pyroelectric sensors with mirror/ lens optics. All models now have Infra Red anti-masking, 3 axis acceleration sensors and conform to EN50131-1 Grade 2.

"The LGWP1520 is a basic unit, which is strange because the impression it gives is that it will be more complicated! Installation is very simple, and configuration is simply a case of setting the address and pulse count. Walk testing is also fast and basic if using the test tool.

Performance of the detector is good, and unless you are looking at a very specialised application, this is certainly on a par with many similarly specified detectors.

The manufacturer is in the process of rewriting the manuals, which can only make installation easier. The detector excels with regard to set-up and configuration, and for many installers, that will be a key issue."
