The Whip Air Conditioner Tamper Detector

In these times of economic stress more and more thieves are resorting to stealing anything that they can get their hands on. We have had a lot of reports of people whose air conditioning units have been getting broken open and the copper parts on the insides of these units have been ripped out.

If you have an alarm system then why not have protection on your central air unit as well as your home? With The Whip, by Starlight Security Devices, you can now protect one of your homes most precious commodities.

Installation is simple, it connects to one of the existing test valves located on the exterior condensing unit of an air conditioner system and is wired to a zone on an electronic security system. Once installed, it monitors the pressure inside of the refrigerant lines and coils of the air conditioner system. When the refrigerant line is cut (e.g. by a thief) and the pressure drops to 5psi or less, the internal contact of the TW-8100 opens to create an alarm condition on the electronic security system.
