    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out the minimum performance requirements and methods of test for detection devices intended for use in intruder alarm systems. The Standard addresses the characteristics that affect the reliability of the devices, with special emphasis being placed on those characteristics which affect false alarm susceptibility and tamper resistance.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the performance of detection devices intended for use in intruder alarm systems.
