The Orisec ControlPlus App Features
- Family care feature which means you can keep a check on your loved ones without invading their privacy. Being able to discreetly keep an eye on elderly or other vulnerable family members is a good feature at any time and the app will send you an alert if it picks up that there has been no activity at your relative’s home within a programmable timeframe. This will allow you to seek help and get someone to check on your relative if you are not able to travel to their house yourself.
- Receiving notifications of when alarms are activated which could be for a break-in, fire or flood
- Setting and unsetting your alarm system, which includes full setting or just part-setting the alarm, wherever you are
- Remotely control other systems or devices if connected such as CCTV, gates and lights.
The Orisec ControlPlus app makes remote management of your intruder alarm system simpler. The app underwent a redesign and was relaunched as the Orisec ControlPlus 2 app in 2023 – take a look at the video to find out more.

What is an intruder alarm system?
An intruder alarm system consists of a series of electrical components that are connected to a property. Via sensors and contacts, they detect movement or the opening of doors and windows, after which a loud alarm is produced to alert those nearby of the unauthorised entry.
What are the grades of intruder alarms?
Intruder alarms are categorised into 4 different grades, based on their levels of performance (such as functionality, reliability and durability). Ecl-ips will fit grade 2 and and grade 3 level alarms.
Grade 2 systems offer a good level of security for most residential properties and and lower risk small commercial properties. This level will protect against burglars who have some knowledge of the alarm system and property. It protects multiple entry points.
Grade 3 systems are designed to combat burglars and attackers with advanced knowledge of the alarm system and have tools and equipment (including portal electronic devices). The system is comprehensive and protects all potential entry points of a building. High risk homes and lots of commercial properties fall into this category.
Before we install a system we will survey your house or premises to ensure that we are providing a system that will meet your needs and the risk level of your property or business.

What are the different types of protection available with an Intruder Alarm?
You can have perimeter protection, trap protection or a combination of these. The Orisec intruder alarm systems have a range of productions to provide the amount of protection you require. For more information see below:
- Perimeter Protection: this type of protection comprises a mixture of devices to secure the perimeter of the protected house. Contacts can be fitted to external doors to detect the opening of the door. Contact Shock Sensors are a combination of a contact and an inertia (vibration) sensor and can be fitted to windows / patio doors to detect forced entry, glass breakage and also the opening of a door or window. A key advantage to Perimeter Protection is that the system can be fully armed while you are inside the premises thereby giving you complete peace of mind.
- Trap Protection: this type of protection comprises Motion (PIR or PIR Camera) sensors within the protected premises to detect movement while the system is armed. This type of protection is ideal for a premises that is unoccupied for periods of time e.g. holiday home, small commercial premises. HKC have Pet Lense inserts for applications where there are animals in the house.
- Combination: this method combines both perimeter and trap. In this solution the perimeter is protected by a mix of Contact and Contact Sensors covering all vulnerable doors and windows. Internally, strategically located motion sensors will detect and confirm intrusion. The Panel will allow the user to part set while in the premises and have peace of mind knowing that the perimeter is secure. Once the system is fully armed all internal motion sensors will become fully active. This is usually used when the premises is vacant.
