Thank you for taking the time to study our products!
We appreciate it can be a daunting task to choose a control panel to protect your property, with so many different options on the market. We hope you find the following guidelines of use...
All of our Euro-MERiDIAN control panels come with a remote keypad which can be placed anywhere (well, within reason) in your property. The full English text display will guide you in its use, should any faults occur on the system they will be fully described, with instructions on what action to take.
You can then increase the number of setting points, either keypads or proximity tag/card readers throughout the property should the need arise.
Give thought to how you might need to expand the system in the future, will you have a conversion added to the property? - or future valuable items will need added protection (insurers may not insure you unless you have adequate securtiy cover). The Euro-76 and above all have the facility whereby software upgrades can be made simply by your installation company adding a compatible snap-in MSX card.
All Euro-MERiDIAN panels offer flexibility of setting. If you want to disable a certain area at night (the bedrooms and bathroom) or set the house but leave the dog in the kitchen, this can be quickly and painlessly done from the keypad. You can also have the panel set up whereby you can omit a particular zone (or zones) during the setting procedure.
Different codes can be set up for all your family or employees, each one can have a different level of security access if required. You can even create a 'set' only code for your cleaners.

5. Peace of Mind - SMS Messaging
If you have children coming home from school, Euro-MERiDIAN will send you a text message to let you know they have arrived safely. The SMS text messaging facility will give you peace of mind for any special property you want to protect.
6. Prevent False Alarms
The majority of false alarms (around 67% according to Police statistics) are caused by users who make mistakes when setting or un-setting the alarm. This is especially true of occasional users, both domestic (a neighbour looking after your home) and commercial (where the last person to leave the premises may vary from day to day).
Castle Care-Tech has developed an optional alternative to the traditional PIN code as a means of setting and un-setting your security system.
Each user Key-fob and/or Card can be specifically programmed to set the intruder system the way you want to without all the fuss of 'options'. The Castle Care-Tech TaG (Touch and Go) method of setting and un-setting your system can dramatically reduce false alarms.
