Devices with RICOCHET technology send, receive and repeat wireless transmissions from all other compatible devices in the network. This means that each and every enabled device provides a data route for the wireless signal to and from Texecom's Premier Series control panels, allowing the network to 'repair' itself when a connection even begins to weaken.
Traditional wireless systems rely on simple 'point-to-point' communication, where each connection is made directly between the control panel and the device. In this situation, distances between the controller and security sensor can be very limited, with outlying zones susceptible to signal loss. By creating a mesh network of interconnecting points, the system maintains signal integrity even in the event of direct-line interference
