We are going to be reviewing the second of three of the most popular wireless alarms in the security and intruder alarm industry.
Next up on the list it’s the Texecom premier elite. Now it would be a lie if we said we hadn’t fitted these in the past as they used to be our go to product. They offer a wide variety of features that are appealing over some of their close competitors.
The Texecom premier elite is by it’s true nature a hardwired control panel, however with the release of the wireless ricochet range texecom have kept the same platform and built wireless capabilities on top of it, which is a trully brilliant move, given how familiar people already are with the Texecom range. The Texecom have far more diversity in the range, starting with the 12W panel which is capable of giving you 8x wirelss devices as well as 4x hard wired. from there you can uograde the panel to either the premier elite 24-W which offers up to 16x wirelss devices and 8x hardwired. and then another two panels which are the premier elite 48-W and the premier elite 64-W providing up to 64x wirelss alarm devices. Because of these variations this system is right up there as one of the best on the market.
The system is a Grade 2 system, environmental class II. Meeting all British and European standards which for ourselves being an NSI approved alarm company is a must.
THE RICOCHET WIRELESS NETWORK
What sets the RICOCHET network apart from other systems is the way in which devices communicate with each other, so below is a detailed description on exactly how this works.
RICOCHET enabled wireless devices receive and repeat wireless transmissions from other devices. The size, scalability and range of the entire system are extended as wireless signalling is no longer limited by point-to-point communications.
The range of a RICOCHET enabled wireless system is greater than previous systems, with multiple devices capable of relaying messages to and from even the most remote locations in a building.
Each RICOCHET enabled device provides signalling routes to and from Texecom Premier Control Panels. Should wireless connection between two devices weaken, the network will ‘self-heal’ and automatically re-route communications via alternate RICOCHET enabled devices. With more RICOCHET enabled devices installed, the greater the reliability of the system.

Texecom connect APP and smart com modules.
With all the competitors having very user friendly and reliable smart phone apps, Texecom needed to think outside of the box and produce a new app that could be released to the market and immediately compete with the likes of pyronix and visonic. Their answer to this is texecom connect. The app is a breath of fresh air and let’s you do all the things other apps do whilst also having some nice little add ons. For instance they have the Texecom connect smart plug which can be set up and connected to devices around your house which can all be turned on or off via the app. Using what texecom have called recipes, you can programme a chain of events that happen when the alalrm is set and unset via the app.
