With scrap copper prices at their highest level in many years, copper theft has become a very common occurrence. On television we hear of wire being stolen from street lights but the theft of copper has expanded to many other targets.  One of the most rapidly growing areas of theft is from air conditioning equipment.  The refrigerant coils can be taken from a condenser in few minutes with nothing more than a screwdriver and a pair of pruning shears.

To provide a solution to building owners, Commercial Consulting Services, Inc. has developed a watchdog system specifically designed to protect their air conditioning equipment. The CCS A/C Alarm System knows when a piece of equipment has been tampered with and immediately dials up to four telephone umbers giving each recipient a verbal message that a burglary is in process.  If desired, a horn and/or strobe can be connected to provide warning to scare off the thief once pressure is lost in the first circuit.  The system also monitors the 120vac powering the alarm system and dials out a separate voice message in the event the power is disconnected.

Some of the watchdog features of the CCS A/C Alarm System include:

TAMPER PROOF
The system is engineered so the controller, wiring and pressure sensors are located within the building.  This prevents the system from being disabled by an intruder prior to committing the crime.

FLEXIBLE
SensorThe CCS A/C Alarm System can be configured to have any number of refrigerant sensors.  This allows the system to be easily installed into any building configuration.

 

HORN / STROBE CONTROL
HornA timing circuit is included that will allow for installation of horns and/or strobes on the exterior of the building to provide an audio/visual alarm.  The circuit will turn off the horns after a preset period while leaving the strobes on until the system is reset.  Multiple horns and/or strobes can be operated at the same time.

 

EASY TO INSTALL
Installation instructions guide you through installing the control panel, the pressure sensors, and making the wiring connections.  The pressure sensors are connected to the suction refrigerant lines near the air handlers.  These sensors are wired in series using a two conductor plenum wire.

When an alarm is sensed, the phone number(s) to be dialed by the CCS A/C Alarm System controller are easily programmed following instructions provided.  The voice messages to be used are simple to record.  The dialer is a dial-out only device that can be connected to any of your existing phone lines
