Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) is excited to announce the launch of its XTLtouch security panel. Unlike any other DMP security system, the XTLtouch is an enhanced all-in-one, combining DMP’s elegant, intuitive 5-inch graphic touchscreen keypad with the popular XTLplus. All-in-one security system “The XTLtouch represents the natural extension of our proven XT and XTLplus security technology,” says DMP Vice President of Sales Mark NeSmith. “Our XTLplus set the standard for security, fast installations, and ease of operation. We’re taking that technology and designing an enhanced all-in-one system.” Unlike any other all-in-one, the XTLtouch incorporates multiple enhancements, he adds. For instance, it has an external 110db wireless siren that can be placed anywhere. Security installation “The first thing an intruder might do is try to disable the sound maker. But with the XTLtouch, since the siren won’t be coming from the main panel, it’s not alerting the intruder to where the main system is; therefore, it’s more secure.” To ensure the best coverage across the premises, DMP offers the option of installing up to eight wireless sirens To ensure the best coverage across the premises, DMP offers the option of installing up to eight wireless sirens. Placing the sirens away from the keypad also alleviates stress for the end user who’s disarming the system. “If there’s a siren blasting in your ear, and you’re trying to disarm your panel, it’s nearly impossible to think. This takes away that stress.” Entry Check-In Protection If the system isn’t disarmed in the designated delay timeframe, the XTLtouch’s built-in Entry Check-In Protection guarantees that the trouble signal is sent to the monitoring center immediately. In the event of an attack, this is a proactive safeguard against a burglar’s fast tactic to disable the security system before it can send a signal. “Entry Check-In Protection is based on the same reliable check-in technology that we’ve used for years, even for our high-security customers,” NeSmith explains. “Our messages never go through a third-party NOC where they’re re-transmitted. They’re sent to the monitoring center receiver directly.” Identical user interface The XTLtouch also offers flexible installation options. This adds to the system’s security and functionality. “If the best cell reception or wireless coverage is on the second floor, that’s not a problem. You can put the XTLtouch wherever you need to and still add keypads exactly where your customer wants them.” The new XTLtouch can support up to seven additional wireless keypads, all with an identical user interface as the main unit. According to NeSmith, “With only one keypad format to learn, users don’t get confused about the way their system functions operate.” Not only is it easy to operate, but the XTLtouch also installs quickly and easily Commercial and residential security Not only is it easy to operate, but the XTLtouch also installs quickly and easily. Options include table top, wall mount or in-wall installations. “That’s part of delivering a complete security solution. These options ensure fast and easy installations while fitting the end user’s preferences.” Compared to other all-in-one systems, the XTLtouch is one of the most compact. And yet, packed into that keypad-sized alarm panel are the same high-security features that commercial and residential customers have come to expect from DMP: 99 zones of 900 MHz Two-Way Wireless, built-in Wi-Fi and LTE communication, as well as Z-Wave Plus support, all included in the base unit. Video integration The XTLtouch also includes all the system automation features that consumers crave, giving them the ability to control lights, locks, and thermostats as they come and go or use the new Custom Actions programming to automate up to 20 different user programmable scripts. Consumers can add video integration with multiple options and control it all from the Virtual Keypad app or VirtualKeypad.com browser. “We’re very excited about the XTLtouch — no other all-in-one offers this kind of powerful and flexible solution,” NeSmith concludes. “Plus, it’s competitively priced. We believe it’s going to allow us to more aggressively compete in the residential and small commercial markets.”
In most residential and small commercial applications, the popular XT Series by Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) is the industry’s workhorse with everything you need in a single panel. In typical DMP style, this family of panels continues to deliver added features and enhancements. For instance, monitoring centers now have the option to program Receiver 2 exclusively as a backup receiver. If programmed this way, Receiver 2 will start receiving messages when Receiver 1 fails. The panel will confirm that it’s had to fail over as Receiver 2 continues receiving messages until Receiver 1 returns to its normal state. This option is now standard with all DMP panels. XT Series panels with Entry Check-In Protection Furthermore, all XT Series panels now have the added security feature known as Entry Check-In Protection. It’s a proactive safeguard against a burglar’s fast tactic to disable the security system before it can send an emergency signal. Specifically, if an entry zone is triggered, and the system is not disarmed in the designated delay timeframe, a trouble signal will be generated at the monitoring center. There are no intermediary servers or network operation centers, and no retransmission or reinterpretation of the information over the Internet. This ensures faster response and eliminates concerns about signals not being properly relayed or intermediate communication links failing. “Entry Check-In Protection is based on the same reliable check-in technology that we’ve used for years, even for our high-security customers,” says DMP Vice President of Sales Mark NeSmith. “And, because this is the same trusted network supervision solution that dealers and subscribers have trusted for years, there’s no need to update receiver hardware or software.”Consumers can add video integration with multiple options and control it all from the app or browser Greater system automation features With this month’s XT Series Version 182 update, customers who use the Virtual Keypad app or VirtualKeypad.com browser have even greater system automation features. They not only can remotely control lights, locks, and thermostats as they come and go, but they also can use the new Custom Actions programming to automate up to 20 different user programmable scripts. Consumers can add video integration with multiple options and control it all from the app or browser. And now, customers who use the app also have the ability to allow up to 50 night or exit type zones to report to them as activity occurs on their systems. XTLtouch security system and XTLplus panels Introducing the Newest XT Panel DMP’s best known XT panel is the popular XTLplus, which sets a standard for security, fast installations, and ease of operation. This month’s launch of the new XTLtouch security system is a natural extension of that proven XT and XTLplus security technology, built into an enhanced all-in-one system.
