systems rely on two copper-based RJ45 telephone enabled auto-dialer systems and one copper
based RJ45 direct line connection to USCG Base Portsmouth s Security Forces Office via a fire
alarm system interface. In addition, the location of two of the systems are in an unsecure area,
which will need to be relocated to an environment which would prevent tampering. Motion and
entry sensors at all three facilities exist and are operational.

central annunciator. A central annunciator (which shall be constantly monitored) containing the electronic
components which announce, by both visible and audible signals, intrusion into protected areas
and the specific structure or location involved. Fail-safe features, such as an alarm signal, at the central annunciator when abnormal
operating conditions preclude the system from functioning properly, and a back-up power
source. Features which minimize the vulnerability to tampering or circumvention. Balanced Magnetic Switches (BMS) shall be surface mounted or recessed and shall have
a minimum of two encapsulated reed switches. The switches shall activate when any disturbance
in the balanced magnetic field occurs. Each BMS shall have an over current protective device,
rated to limit current to 80 percent on the switch capacity. The BMS shall be rated for a
minimum lifetime of one million operations. Line supervision shall be incorporated to detect any signal cutting, shorting, or splicing of
the transmission line. Attempts at gaining access to, or substitution or neutralization of any
sensor shall be detected and signaled. An alarm shall be indicated at the alarm control center
within one second of a line tamper attempt. Dedicated terminal junction boxes for sensor inputs
and connecting cables shall be securely welded or locked and provided with tamper switches.
Junction boxes containing phone lines, which carry alarm system signals do not need to be
locked, welded, or alarmed. A backup power source, capable of sustaining the system for a minimum of four hours,
shall be provided to enable uninterrupted operation. On/off switches shall be located within the protected area. The IDS shall include a central control station where alarms annunciate. In addition, an
audible alarm shall be located outside the protected area. Alarm signals shall be reset only in the
