, a leader in security and life safety solutions for residential and commercial enterprises, recently announced three new keypads that offer powerful protection and user-friendly features for its popular NetworX intrusion system. Interlogix is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp
NetworX is a full product suite that offers a complete, reliable and scalable intrusion solution for home and small business use. These next-generation keypads include voice-enhanced operation, vocal setup guides and built-in intercom for easy installation and control.
The touch screen keypad, designed for user-friendly operation through an icon-based interface, is a 3.5-inch color touch screen with quick keys for simple, intuitive system control. The keypad has a built-in message board for recording voice messages, 192-zone capacity and support for up to 99 users, along with eight partitions and 16 outputs.
The advanced touch LED keypad provides Interlogix’s exclusive Personal Voice Guide with step-by-step instruction for all system functions. It includes individually lit, color-coded touch response keys and recorded voice memos. A built-in intercom allows colleagues and family members to talk to each other from up to eight locations around the office or home. The keypad, with its 192-zone capacity, is available in black or white and in both portrait and landscape formats.
The voice navigation LED keypad also features the Personal Voice Guide, voice-enabled status key, and a built-in word library for customised voice labels for zones, areas and outputs. It also offers 16-zone capability and double-press fire, medical and panic keys.
“With their streamlined design and advanced technology, these feature-rich keypads are perfect for new installations as well as for upgrades of current NetworX systems,” said Paul Van der Zanden, general manager, intrusion and alarm monitoring solutions, Interlogix and Lenel. “Each keypad is compatible with all NetworX control panels and is simple to use, program and control in any home or small business setting.”
Much of the technology for the new keypads came from Interlogix’s April acquisition of Ultra High Speed (UHS), an Australian telecommunications infrastructure equipment, web application server, modem and customised network management system provider.
All three keypads are available now from authorised Interlogix dealers and distributors. For a demonstration of the keypads, visit Interlogix at ASIS 2014, booth 1311, Sept. 29–Oct. 1.
