Air2-BS100 Wireless Transceiver 

Wireless Transceiver with I-BUS interface for connection to SmartLiving series control panels. The Air2-BS100/50 is capable of managing 50 devices (IR100 PIRs, MC100 / 200 magnetic contacts and FD100 Smoke Detectors) and up to 100 KF100 wireless keyfobs; (an alternative model the Air2-BS100/10 (Refer Ness Part No 106-414) is capable of managing 10 devices and 30 keyfobs). Each device can be mapped to a terminal on the control panel, in the same way as each keyfob can be mapped to a SmartLiving control panel Tag / Key. 


AIR2 Wireless devices for SmartLiving Series Control Panels 

Frequently security professionals perceive the market need for a reliable, truly proficient wireless system. And now, thanks to Ness's perception of installer company needs, that system is available.

The first-rate 'Air2' wireless system operates over 915MHz band and moreover uses two-way signal transmission technology. This means that all the system devices transmit and receive signals. This two-way transmission technology also means that the traditional older technology receiver has been replaced by a superior device that not only receives but also transmits signals to all the system devices. Therefore, the 'Air2' system does not rely on one-way alarm signal transmission, like most other wireless systems, but verifies the successful effect of the signal on the target device via a two-way wireless transmission channel.

Security professionals will find the innovative operating principles and superior functions of the 'Air2' wireless system more than convincing and will surely appreciate the advanced features of the system diagnostics.

The transceiver connects directly to the control panel I-BUS (Ness's peripheral communication bus) and allows fully-integrated management of all wireless and hard-wired devices. Ness's 'Air2' high-performance wireless system provides complete protection and in no way lowers security. Choosing 'Air2' means reducing installation time to a minimum whilst at the same providing those hard-to-get-to spots with total protection. The 'Air2' wireless system can be installed without defacing the structure it protects, and therefore finds its niche in buildings of importance such as churches and museums where extensive structural work would spoil the overall appearance of the building.



 Designed for security and flexability

The SmartLiving intrusion control panel 'cocks its eye' at security.
This innovative system combines all that is new in intrusion-control technology to provide flexibility and ease. Ease for the installer, who is steered through programming operations in a fast, clear-cut way. Ease for the user, who is guided through operations by graphic indications and voice prompts. Ease-of-access to the most frequent operations, and ease of understanding of the entire system.



Superior to time and first on the changing scene of security systems, Ness's newly designed control panels and devices are based on new-generation technologies and leading-edge system architecture. All products are designed to take full advantage of the latest microprocessor technology, bus architecture and communication paths. The result is a range of truly innovative products whose superiority in design technology and performance is more than obvious. The highly-competitive SmartLiving intrusion control panel provides important features rarely found in residential, commercial or industrial application systems of its kind. This optimized-performance control panel provides first-rate features such as: graphic display, text-to-speech, voice notifier, flexible hardware, end-to-end voice transmission (voice-on-bus), IP connectivity.


Technology and Simplicity. From the onset Ness professionals took great pains to ensure that the SmartLiving intrusion control panel would be both installer and user friendly. Easy4U is based on audible and visual technologies which provide a series of operative approaches which interface with the system and access "Shortcuts". The visual guide utilizes a display that provides information in text and graphic formats. The text display (4 lines of 16 characters) is twice the size of displays normally found in control panels in this market segment. The uncomplicated "follow me" graphic guide steers the user through a choice of options. Explicit icons indicate the keys to press making operations clear-cut and simple.

 Even the installer will find Easy4U technology helpful. Programming is piloted by a straightforward graphic interface similar to that of a PC. In addition, an advanced technology "text-to-speech" feature allows you to create "voice" messages by simply typing in the texts if you don't want to use the standard defaults that are ready to use out of the box. It is also possible to download .Wav files and messages recorded on the PC to the control panel. A further feature of great importance is automatic-learning of all zone balancing which allows the system to set itself up in accordance with its cabling.


Technology and Flexibility. FlexIO offers the ultimate in the patented split-terminal technology. With this technology the embedded distinction between inputs and outputs no longer exists. In fact, FlexIO terminals work as both. In other words, the number of zones and outputs on an expansion board is defined during system installation and is no longer pre-defined at the factory. This hardware flexibility goes even further, as these terminals can read analogue values, deal directly with vibration and rollerblind sensors, output analogue signals and also manage 'zone doubling' (two separate programmable hardwired zones placed to one terminal). This installer-friendly technology also allows you program the intervention (EOL) values of the terminals you employ as inputs. Each terminal is equipped with a fine-adjustment trimmer (Patent Pending) which eliminates the risk of incorrect analysis evaluation and thus lowers the false alarm rate. Another interesting aspect of FlexIO terminals is the 'free mapping' feature. To all intents and purposes, the control panel terminals can be 'mapped' anywhere on the peripherals (keypads and expansion boards) in such way to allow the installer to use every terminal the system provides.


Technology and Connectivity. Janus technology takes you into a different realm. It permits you to interface the world of Ness SmartLiving products with the outside world through a TCP/IP Ethernet connection. Janus technology is embedded in SmartLAN/SI and SmartLAN/G boards. By accessorizing the SmartLiving control panel with these boards, you will be allowed 'no-risk' worldwide access to the system via the Internet. You will be able to send TCP/IP data packets and program the system from any remote location over the Internet. The SmartLAN/G board provides the entire spectrum of Janus technology functions. It not only provides easy remote access from anywhere in the world, but also offers the opportunity to send e-mails and attachments. Additionally, you can access the system via the Internet and interact with the control panel through a virtual keypad. On top of that, the sophisticated technology of Janus allows you to interact with the control panel through your Smartphone just as if you were standing in front of a keypad. The Janus technology embedded in the SmartLAN/G board transforms your Smartphone into a wireless keypad that allows you to operate on the SmartLiving system. A keypad connected to the panel no matter where you are!
