    Easy to Program and Control Securely
    Programming is easy, using the large, backlit buttons and the LCD screen. You have the option of testing or arming the system at a predefined time, and the siren can squawk when armed or disarmed if you so choose. The PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System supports 28 wireless zones and one hardwired zone and a 100-event log. Additional features include a silent/audible panic alarm, two-way voice/listen in enabling options, and even voice response.

    Internet Connectivity via Optional PowerLink
    Verify the status of lighting devices and reprogram security functions anywhere and any time by adding the PowerLink2 Broadband IP Module. Whether you're at work or on vacation, you can easily access the PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System via SMS, e-mail, mobile, and regular phones, or a secure web application.

    Built-in Siren and Phone Dialer
    When it detects an alarm signal from one of the wireless sensors, the alarm system blasts an 85dB siren that not only alerts your family, but also sends would-be thieves fleeing. In addition, you can program it to call any private phone number (i.e.: a friend or neighbor, your office, your wireless phone, etc.) and play a pre-recorded message in your own voice if connected to your standard telephone or to a cellular network via its built-in GSM Modem (SIM card and activation required). It doesn't even need its own dedicated phone line! It also supports 24-hour monitoring by commercial alarm monitoring personnel, who can dispatch police, fire or medical response (depending on the type of alert it receives). It can even call you for non-alarm events. For example, do you want to know that your kids arrived home safely from school? The security system can call you at the office to let you know that your child successfully disarmed the alarm.

    Individual User Codes
    The PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System supports up to 8 individual user codes, so each member of your household can have an independent code ID.

    Wireless Connections Make it Easy
    The PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System comes with a four-button wireless keyfob, two wireless magnetic window/door contacts, and an 85-Pound Pet Immune Wireless Motion Detector. Additional contacts, detectors and keyfobs may be purchased separately. Transmit signals to your PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System using a Keyfob Transmitter. Upon pressing any of the four recessed buttons, this keyfob transmits a CodeSecure™ digital sequence along with a 4-bit function code associated with the button that was pressed. Different digital sequences are transmitted each time, so that malicious code grabbing is almost impossible. The included Wireless PIR Detector is a compact, animal-immune detector, so pets up to 85 pounds won't set off the alarm. With a coverage area of 30 by 30 feet, this fully supervised detector will keep an eye on your home when you're not around. A 40-pound pet-immune motion detector is also available and sold separately. Upon detection of an intruder, the on-board transmitter instantly sends an alert to the PowerMax Express 211G Wireless Security System.

    KAMALAKANNAN -- edison, NJ   1/10/2013
    works as said, easy to install and configure. No false alarms so far. Had some trouble in enabling / disabling alert via cellular phone , but figured it out and its also working.
    FELIX LIOK -- portland, OR   9/16/2012
    Pros: Stylish, compact casing. Full featured. Available with built-in GSM. Cons: No voice prompts or voice chime. Audio chime is extremely annoying and no volume control. Verdict: Unless you really need a small footprint, would recommend either the older Powermax Plus or Powermax Pro over this Powermax Express.
    GERHARD -- brampton, ON   9/16/2012
    Overall a great alarm system but not easy to configure without the software using the programming kit. For the PowerMax Express you will need the Visonic 9-102071 Programming kit.
