Sensor with Tape

The heart of the PC Tab System is the unique security sensor equipped with a strong and durable 3M tape that you just peel and stick to the equipment you are securing.

Sensor with Plate

Optionally use the more permanent base plate with super glue gel if you are concerned about people excessively yanking on the wires in your particular environment. This option is not necessary in most cases.

How it Works

Proven to stop theft at Universities around the world, the PC Tab Blast Alert gives you this level of security easier than ever before. Simply stick the PC Tab Sensor on your equipment and plug it into the Blast Alert, turn the key and you’re done! You’re now secured with a siren to alert nearby personnel and scare off the thief.

Secure Multiple Items

Daisy-chain multiple sensors together to secure everything in a cluster of equipment on the same Blast Alert box for about $15 per additional item. Even better, when it’s time to replace equipment, the cost to "re-secure" is less than $1 per item!

Notification Capabilities

At any point in the future, you can plug the Blast Alert into your building’s alarm system to alert security personnel.

Long Battery Life

You only need to change the 9-volt battery every 4 - 5 years, and only because of the shelf-life of the battery. The circuitry consumes so little power it would take 50 years of monitoring to drain the battery. And yes, batteries ARE included!

key for Blast Alert
Key control is an important part of security. Only order as many keys as you need so you don’t have extras floating around. You can always order more of that same key number in the future.


Replacement Tape
tape for Blast Alert Sensors
The 3M tape on the back of the sensor must be replaced whenever a sensor is removed from equipment. Re-attaching old tape may cause false alarms. A good ratio is to have 1 replacement tape on hand for every 10 sensors you have installed. This way you should never run short!


Replacement Glue-on Base Plates

If you use the optional glue-on base plate for the sensors instead of the 3M tape, then you can snap the sensor on and off as often as you wish. But you will need replacement plates if you want to move the sensors to new equipment. Glue is included.


Remote Monitoring Kit

Step 4 – Arm the Blast Alert

All Wires must be plugged in and all Sensors must be installed on your equipment (or you at least must be holding down the tamper switch on the back of the Sensor) before the Blast Alert can be armed. Simply turn the key to arm it. Test it by unplugging any wire, but make sure you are ready to disarm it with the key because the siren is EXTREMELY loud!
