Polling Signals

The hub continuously monitors the detectors, and they regularly report back to the hub. If a sensor is triggered, it immediately transmits that information. The hub then sends alerts to the central monitoring station and to your smartphone. All of this happens in just milliseconds.

Most Awarded or Most Affordable

Because there is no 'one fit for all.'


Here at DFS, we understand that everyone has a different priority. For some, it is just about security from burglars and intruders at a very affordable price, while others might be interested in home automation or smart home capability along with home security. This is why we offer three different ranges of hardware. The best part is, all three ranges come with professional monitoring from DFS!

What happens if an alarm goes off?

A sensor detects an unauthorised event such as door opening.

Control hub informs the CMS and triggers the loud siren.

Operator verifies and informs the customer & authorities.

Issue is resolved and logged, operator resets the system.

impulse wave corner sensor

x A motion sensor uses PIR technology to detect any motion in its line of sight. It comes with tamper function and auto sleep technology to avoid false alarms and is smart enough to know if it's a family pet or thief.

impulse wave door sensor

x A door sensor detects if a door is open. Usually, you will need this sensor on main door and on other possible entry points such as balcony. For iron shutters in shops, you will need shutter sensor which works on same principle.

impulse wave roof sensor

x A smoke sensor or gas leak sensor detects smoke or gas leak as a primary indication of fire or gas leak accident in a house and warns the occupants, enabling them to escape the accident or take counter measures.

impulse wave sensor item center

x The control hub is the brain of the system, this is where all the programming and configuration is done. Like other components, it comes with tamper function and has an impressive battery backup.

impulse wave outdoor sensor

x The siren is main deterrent. Tamper function, upto 5 years battery life, and the flashing strobe can make any thief think twice before trying. The alarm is loud enough to be heard upto 1 kilometre.

Pet immune

All our sensors have pet immunity as standard. Our devices use a digital algorithm to detect human movement. As long as your pets are smaller than 50 centimeters (19.5 inches) and 20 kilograms (44 lbs), they shouldn’t set off your detectors.

Everything from your smartphone

Managing the alarm system is as easy as using any modern device. All you need is a smartphone with internet access. You can go on vacation, stay late at work or take a long sabbatical. No matter what, you can take solace in the fact that everything at home is in order.

Multiple Channels

When it comes to security of our users, we never take a chance. And that’s why not just one but two backup channels come as standard.

TCP-IP and M2M GPRS with VPN tunnelling as main and backup channels. With additional GSM based low frequency communication as a separate backup.

As loud as it gets

It's true that a loud siren is enough to make any thief run for his life. But as they say, thieves these days are one step ahead and the first thing they do is cut the siren's connectivity to control hub or its power supply.

This is why we made sure that our sirens are completely wireless with exceptional battery backup with all round tamper protection.

FAQ

Do I need to insert a sim card into the control hub??

No, all our packages come with an inbuilt M2M sim card with necessary subscription plans, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing a sim card or taking a plan from the mobile service provider.

Q. What is the free telephonic assessment service and how to avail it?

You can get in touch with customer services to avail our free telephonic assessment service. As part of this service, our experts will ask a series of questions to determine your security requirements and help you build the most suitable security solution at an affordable price.

Q. What is the CMS?

Central Monitoring Station or CMS refers to DFS command centre. CMS can connect and monitor any compatible alarm system across the globe, the AI software of the CMS processes heavy influx of signals. On an average, CMS receive nearly 3500 signals in 24 hours from a typical home!

Q. What will happen during power cuts, will the security grid still work?

Power cuts are common in India and the system is designed to handle such situations. While we recommend a continuous power supply, our control hubs have inbuilt rechargeable batteries for backup.

Q. What is a heartbeat signal and why is it important?

A heartbeat signal is a continuous signal which connects the alarm system with the CMS. At DFS, we typically use one heartbeat every 30 seconds. Heartbeat signals never stop and any delay in heartbeat implies immediate attention!

Q. I don't have an internet connection; can I still use the security grid monitoring?

All our packages come with inbuilt M2M sim card with necessary subscription plans, our monitoring is not dependent on the WIFI or internet connection or phone line at your home.

Q. I don't have landline connection; can I still use the security grid solution?

Yes, in fact, DFS never uses a landline-based monitoring approach! Landline based monitoring is ineffective and obsolete. As an example, the heartbeat signal in landline-based monitoring is typically sent once in 24 hour unlike DFS, where heartbeat signal is sent every 30 seconds. Also, communication links in landline based monitoring are very slow and do not work 20-25 % of the time due to analog technology which forfeits the purpose of monitoring. This method was popular till 1998 due to technological limitations; however, this is completely obsolete and ineffective in current circumstances.

Q. If I have an internet connection, do still have to use the inbuilt DFS M2M sim card in the control hub?

Technically, if you can connect the Control hub with the internet, you have covered just one communication channel; however, routers or WIFI based connectivity is vulnerable. A router will stop working during power failure,means a burglar can compromise your security just by cutting the power supply of your home; also, the internet bandwidth will fluctuate as the same router will be used by other devices such as laptops, mobiles, smart TV etc.So, while we suggest connecting with the router, all our packages have the inbuilt M2M sim card for assured connectivity.

Q. I want to buy the security grid for my factory, does DFS also provide installation service?

DFS provides the installation service; however, it is chargeable, and charges vary based on the location and actual travel expenses. Alternatively, we can guide you step by step during installation, you don’t have to worry about any settings or configuration and the system comes fully configured and monitoring ready. Please get in touch with customer services for further details.

Q. What happens once the free first year monitoring is over?

We strongly recommend that you renew the monitoring services to get the most out of your security grid! However, you can continue without the monitoring services, and we can reconfigure it as self-monitored solution.

Q. What is the battery life of sensors?

It can vary brand-wise. For Ajax, sensors have up to 5 to 7 years battery back up. For nova pro, sensors have 3-4 years of battery backup. And for classic, sensors have 2-3 years of battery backup. 

Q. Why is DFS security solution better than SMS/GSM based self-monitored alarm systems?

There are just too many reasons why a self-monitored system is considered much inferior and should not be compared with the monitored solution. We will cover couple of the reasons here: What happens if you’re in a business meeting and your phone is at your desk on silent? Do you travel for work? If you’re on an airplane you obviously won’t have access to your security system? Do you go for runs or exercise, Is your phone with you during your entire workout? Point is - your phone probably isn’t attached to your hip 24/7. That’s why having a professional at a central monitoring station looking out for your safety is important. They can watch over your family and home when you’re unable to. More importantly, the real difference is in the underlying technology. Self-monitoring system typically depends on the GSM sim card or WIFI/router connection and are not built to provide continuous connectivity. They do not use proprietary protocols and backup methods. For example, an emergency text message may take hours during peak traffic (such as New year or Christmas eve)! On the other hand, security grid is designed to be connected continuously and is 24X7 monitored.

Q. Why should you choose DFS Security Grid?

There are few other companies who offer security alarm systems, but a security alarm system alone is not effective. Here at DFS, we have our own Central Monitoring Station and we provide 24X7 monitoring. Every component of the alarm system communicates with the CMS via control hub. Every signal - be it low battery, sensor loss, tamper, or simple activation/deactivation of the grid - It all reaches to the CMS within milliseconds. A heartbeat signal is sent every 30 seconds (based on the configuration settings) to ensure that everything is working fine. We use multiple channels to connect with CMS with multiple backup methods for the critical alarm signals. All our packages come with inbuilt M2M sim, so you don’t have to worry about recharge or data subscription plans. Our customer support is excellent, we are open round the clock even on festivals like Diwali, Eid or Christmas. We offer price match promise and impressive 21 days return policy. There is a lot more to tell but we know you get the idea!

Q. I have placed an order, what happens next?

As soon as you place the order, you will receive the order confirmation on SMS and email. Our customer service team will get in touch with you typically within next 24 hours to discuss any specific requirements; We will keep you informed about the progress of your order and you can reach out to us in live chat or via customer services 24X7.

Q. What if I like to return the package as per 21 days return policy. How can I do that?
