New Genesis Keypad now available

With all Remote Monitored systems, it is a requirement that the system should be set and un-set. Conveniently this is provided using a key point at the entrance and exit of the site. In order to achieve this there is normally a great deal of civil works to be done which can be costly in time and money.

 

To overcome these problems a Genesis Wireless Key Point can now be simply and quickly installed to provide wireless remote Setting and Un-Setting of the system.This is a secure encrypted duplex system with confirmation of the alarm status displays on the key point facia. Operation is by way of a five digit PIN number providing (12^5) 248,832 combinations.

The key point works in conjunction with an IP masthead receiver which can store up to eight PIN numbers and associated user names. 

 

Communication to the masthead receiver is via Ethernet or RS232. As this is a duplex system, the set/un-set status of the system can be checked from both the keypoint and over IP. Existing Genesis installations can be easily upgraded to take advantage of the Key Point which has a range of approximately 300 metres.

 

(NB: For BS8418 compliance it is necessary to integrate using the SDK. Standard operational mode is not compliant.)
