Tecom provides leading intrusion and access control solutions for a wide range of solutions, from a small retail store to leading university campuses, large commercial buildings and financial institutions. 

Initially developed by Tecom Systems in Melbourne, the Challenger alarm and access control panel was first released in 1989 and quickly gained a strong and loyal installed base with its industry-leading integrated intrusion detection and access control functionality. Today, Interlogix continues to invest in development and breakthrough innovations and as a result, Challenger10 – the most advanced version of Challenger yet has now been released.

Challenger10 is a modular system which can be scaled for almost any application, from small to large commercial installations. With thousands of programmable options, Challenger10 has been designed to meet any security and access requirement and can be tailored to your own security policies.

Designed and built with the latest technology for superior access control and integrated networking, Challenger10 is the result of significant research and development, built on the successful foundations of Challenger V8 and its peripherals.

With 99 areas, Challenger10 can be partitioned with no loss of performance, whether you are using one or all 99 areas, which is due to the onboard 32-bit micro processor. Tailor your own solution by using the many configuration options to suit your site’s requirements. Your system can be customised to individually arm areas by time and location, which gives you incredible flexibility to protect people and assets.
