SP Spectra Expandable Security Systems Login | Register | Cart

Spectra offers a combination of innovative features and an advanced communication bus for a unique expandable security system. Through its communication bus, Spectra can be expanded via wireless and hardwired expansion modules and a variety of accessory modules. With its reliable communication technology, flexible expansion and great-looking keypads, Spectra is an ideal security system for any residential or commercial installations that require up to 32 zones of protection.

With the introduction of the SP series, the reliability of Spectra panels is expanded to provide you with more features, such as StayD, more on-board zones (expandable to 32), more on-board PGMs (expandable to 16), and support for the new GSM Module (PCS Series), Plug-In Voice Dialer (VDMP3) and Internet Module (IP100). With their in-field firmware upgrade capability, the Spectra SP series allows installers to upgrade their system without hassle — quickly, easily and on site. And to further facilitate installation, every Spectra SP series panel can be configured using easy-to-follow menu-driven programming.

Experience a new way of living with StayD offered in the Spectra SP Series. StayD simplifies your life and makes it safer by protecting you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without ever having to disarm the system – even when entering an armed area. StayD lives with you and protects you at all times, without any unprotected periods, and while automatically re-arming the system so you don't have to remember to do it.
