Power Fluctuations or Failures

Modern Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) incorporate line conditioning to ensure delivery of clean, uninterrupted power to mission-critical security devices. Some feature fire alarms, intrusion video, access control, and intercoms to enhance security and stability. In older buildings or finicky power areas, you need a UPS with line conditioning to assure you do not damage the equipment from power surges. However, line conditioning alone does not guarantee that your UPS will perform during power fluctuations. Even in areas with newer buildings and modern grids, power surges and losses can disrupt your UPS and other devices.

Why is this happening?

The number of security system devices varies over time. As you connect new components, they draw incremental power, straining the entire system. Also, end devices are infamous for their sensitivity to power fluctuations, which can cause equipment to operate in unexpected ways. For example, a thermostat that draws too much power can cause other HVAC components to behave abnormally. Erratic behavior occurs because the power flow is too low to operate essential components like zone dampers. As a result, large power spikes can deliver dirty, interrupted flows of power. Power surges or drops in voltage damage electronic equipment with undue wear and tear and can cause a system-wide power outage, leaving areas of your security environment unprotected or inaccessible.
