The Protexial alarm is available from professional installers and can control IO Homecontrol products (Velux, Somfy, Niko, etc. products) and RTS products (Somfy products). The Protexiom alarm is available from DIY stores and can only be used to control RTS products.
The difference between products installed by a professional ad those bought in a DIY store primarily lies in the advice and implementation of our solutions, but also in the design of the alarm and the number of elements that can be programmed in the alarm. (Possibility of memorising more elements with the alarm available from professionals).

With regard to the alarm function, our two product ranges operate in the same way. There are three solutions:

  • The RTC transmitter: transmission of an alert via a fixed telephone line (France Télécom or ADSL).
  • The GSM transmitter: transmission of an alert by SMS via a SIM card.
  • No transmitter (with a mainframe/siren): If triggered, you will receive no alerts.

In addition to security in the event of burglary, you can also protect your home against household incidents thanks to numerous accessories (smoke detector, water detector, etc.).
Our alarm kits sold in DIY stores are complete alarm systems ready to be installed. The accessories are already programmed in your alarm kit for quick and easy installation.
