DMP is excited to announce its ESX TECHVISION Challenge, two years in a row. This year’s award goes to DMP’s Virtual Keypad Access. In addition, DMP received ESX Innovation Awards in two other categories. In the Installation/Service Tools category is DMP’s Dealer Admin 2.0, and in the Mobile Apps for Consumers category is DMP’s Virtual Keypad 6.0. DMP’s Virtual Keypad Access Receiving the awards at the ESX show this month in Nashville, Tennessee, are DMP’s Director of Product Management & Support, Brad Tucker, and Product Manager for Access Control, Adam Kinder. “It’s an honor to see Virtual Keypad Access win an ESX Innovation Award and then the TECHVISION Challenge Best-of-Show,” Tucker says. “We’re excited that others see the value in our program.” DMP’s Virtual Keypad Access is the natural progression of DMP’s Virtual Keypad app that manages intrusion systems. For users who don’t want to spend the money to have a dedicated server for their access control systems, Virtual Keypad Access provides the flexibility to remotely manage system users, schedules, and profiles, plus control public doors. It also allows users to view and record video. In fact, at its booth during the show, DMP announced the addition of multiple commercial video options, which are coming soon, including Open Eye, Digital Watchdog, Hikvision, I-View Now, and SecureCom video cameras and NVRs. In combination with its other access control features, DMP now has an even more comprehensive platform to offer businesses of all sizes. Because Virtual Keypad Access is maintained via the Cloud, it allows consumers to remotely manage their own systems Cloud management Because Virtual Keypad Access is maintained via the Cloud, it allows consumers to remotely manage their own systems, or it can be managed for them by their dealers. Either way, the combination of intrusion and access control in one platform makes for a powerful and economic package for security companies and their customers. “Security companies can grow their businesses by helping their customers drive down costs, not only in personnel requirements to manage access control, but also in the cost of the systems,” Kinder explains. “Likewise, dealers have less installation time and monthly costs, so they have lower overhead expenses. They can secure more recurring revenue by charging a premium for services like intrusion, managed access control, and video all in a single web-based or mobile app. Their customers benefit by not having to take care of it themselves.” DMP’s ESX Innovation Award Recipients: Virtual Keypad 6.0 and Dealer Admin 2.0 Virtual Keypad 6.0 and Dealer Admin 2.0 Also winning judges’ favor as Innovation Award recipients were DMP’s feature-rich mobile app, Virtual Keypad 6.0, and Dealer Admin 2.0, which is an administrative portal giving DMP dealers and their staff easy access to their customers’ information. “All three of these award-winning programs give our dealers the tools they need to reinforce value and brand loyalty among their existing customers and grow with new ones,” Tucker says. “We’re honored to be among this year’s award recipients and equally honored to partner with our dealers in providing the services their customers want.”
Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) and LifeSafety Power have announced an integration delivering a customised enclosure that simplifies installing power supply and sub-assemblies for access control. “A lot of our dealers have told us they like using LifeSafety power supplies and enclosures,” says Adam Kinder, product manager for DMP Access Control. In combination with our controllers he adds, “It’s a solution that requires no modification.” DCLASS integrated DMP power system LifeSafety specialises in smart power solutions and patented remote networking capabilities. Among its access control power systems, now LifeSafety offers the ‘DCLASS’ integrated DMP power system for 2 – 18 doors. It’s a customised system that’s combined with DMP’s 734/734N Wiegand Interface Modules, all in one compact and secure UL Listed enclosure.Access control integrators need three separate cabinets for system power, lock power, and access hardware This all-in-one approach minimises wall space, simplifies installation, and reduces time and labour costs. Traditionally, access control integrators need three separate cabinets for system power, lock power, and access hardware, plus an electrician to wire the cabinet space and each of those power supplies. The DCLASS combines DMP’s access hardware, system power, lock power, and optional network management modules into an optimised wall space footprint. Powerful access control solution for dealers “Since our modules are covered inside the enclosure, they’re available to order with or without their plastic covers,” Kinder says. In addition to single and dual voltage options, he adds, “The DCLASS offers a managed option with networked power specifications for live voltage and current reporting, as well as remote battery load testing, output power cycling, and abnormal operation alerts.” All of the DCLASS power configurations and related technical documents are posted here on LifeSafety Power’s website. Orders should be made through LifeSafety or its distribution. “We’re excited to offer this integration to our dealers. This gives them an additional power and access control solution they’ve been asking for,” says Kinder. In this particular case, Bryan Smith from Koorsen Fire & Security in Indianapolis requested the integration.
