For any access control job up to 96 doors, the user will soon be able to streamline the installations by centralising the power supply and access control modules, all in one secure enclosure. At this year’s ISC Show, don’t miss DMP’s expanded line of access enclosures, giving users multiple access system options to meet their applications. The new enclosures will allow the user to install multiple DMP access control modules and power supply, all together in one place. “This is something our dealers have requested, and we’re excited to deliver,” says Brad Tucker, vice president of product management and support for DMP. Offering an eight-door configuration “They’ll have the ability to replace several enclosures with just one — there’s no need to string cable from box to box — everything is centralised in one place, making installations go more quickly. Also, customers will appreciate the fact that less wall space is taken up.” DMP offers an eight-door configuration with a power supply for quick setup Depending on the requirements, DMP offers an eight-door configuration with a power supply for quick setup, or a 16-door configuration for larger installations. Each enclosure has mounting plates that are removable so one can hang the enclosure for pre-wire phase, then come back with the electronics for trim out. “Our dealers have always had the flexibility of mounting our 734 access control modules at the door or in a central location,” Tucker explains. Access control modules “Now, in cases where they want to install in a centralised manner or are doing a retrofit of an existing system, this allows them to accommodate many of our access control modules, all in a secure enclosure.” By taking the centralised approach, many technicians agree that future service is easier. It’s easy to see and locate all of the wiring and see how the installation is done. And, DMP’s new design includes wire management anchors for easily making the installations look clean and organised. Don’t miss a preview of the new line of DMP enclosures at this year’s ISC show.
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.”
Now, for any job up to 96 doors, you can streamline your installation with DMP’s 734 Wiegand Modules, the Altronix power supply, and power controller — all in one secure enclosure. Over the last few months, Altronix Corporation and Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) have been discussing a way to better serve mutual customers who have asked for a way to centralise the power supply and sub-assemblies for access control. Trove access and power integration solutions Altronix is a global provider of power and transmission solutions for professional security, surveillance/IT, access control and fire applications. Like Altronix, DMP is further also a U.S. manufacturer, and it specialises in designing and building electronic burglary, fire, and access products.We are honoured to be among the preferred access control suppliers for the Altronix Trove" In response to their customers’ requests, the two manufacturers are pleased to announce that Altronix has expanded its offering of Trove Access and Power Integration Solutions to include an enclosure and backplane that accommodates DMP access control products. “We are honoured to be among the preferred access control suppliers for the Altronix Trove,” says DMP’s Director of Product Management & Support, Brad Tucker. “We try to do what our customers ask of us.” Altronix-DMP collaboration “In working to achieve the same positive results, we both want to give our customers the best solution available,” adds Altronix National Sales Engineer, Ronnie Pennington. “We have many mutual customers who’ve requested us to add DMP to our integration solutions, and we take pride in offering solutions to those customers that make their jobs easier.” Depending on your requirements, the Altronix enclosures for DMP modules are available in two sizes: the Trove2, designed for larger applications, or the Trove1, a more compact version for smaller applications. Each of these have customised backplanes to accommodate DMP’s 734 Wiegand Interface Module or 734N Network Wiegand Interface Module, giving you the powerful built-in access control capability of DMP panels. Trove supports a wide range of options for scalable applications, and because the backplane is removable, you can easily configure and test power prior to on-site installation.Our dealers have always had the flexibility of mounting our 734 access control modules at the door or in a central location" Access control modules “When it comes to meeting customers’ needs, it’s all about giving them options,” Tucker adds. “Our dealers have always had the flexibility of mounting our 734 access control modules at the door or in a central location. Now, in cases where they’re replacing an existing system, this allows them to accommodate many of our access control modules, all in a secure enclosure.” “It broadens our solution, particularly for applications of 16 or more doors,” adds Trey Parsons, co-owner of Integrated Security Solutions, LLC. “This will make it easy to clean an installation up by replacing several enclosures with just one. There’s no need to string cable from box to box — everything is centralised in one enclosure. As a result, your installations will go more quickly, and your customers will appreciate the fact that you’ve taken up less wall space.” By taking the “all-in-one” approach, troubleshooting is also easier, Parsons adds. “There’s only one enclosure to open up when you need to diagnose problems. It’s easy to trace all of the wiring and see how the installation is done.” Trove system design tool Parsons has served customers using Altronix and DMP products for more than 20 years. “We’ve always had great results with Altronix,” he says. “The Trove enclosure compliments an already powerful product from DMP to allow a cleaner overall finished solution.” Altronix has further simplified the process by offering a free online Trove System Design Tool. This is helpful in designing a system with DMP access controllers, integrating Altronix power supply/chargers and accessories.
