Give Your Customers More Custom Automation Now With Custom Actions
Get ready to discover all the many more ways you can customize automation with the Virtual Keypad app and browser! In addition to automating your lights, locks, and thermostats, this week’s Virtual Keypad 6.15 release adds up to 20 customizable actions that can be programmed into XR and XT panels.
Say, for instance, you want the patio light to turn on for 10 minutes when you let the dog out in the middle of the night.nThe new feature called "Custom Actions" lets you turn on a light between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. each time the back-door sensor is tripped. At the end of 10 minutes, the light automatically shuts off. It’s that easy.
Now users can select a sequence of actions to trigger based on Favorites, Lights, Locks, and Outputs. You’ll find this new feature in Virtual Keypad’s Actions section.
Also, as part of this update:
Inactive User – Use the app to remotely change a user’s profile to inactive when that user is on a temporary leave of absence. All of the user’s profile settings are saved for the user’s return.
Temporary Schedules – The app’s Schedules tab now has a check box for creating a temporary schedule.
Enhanced Lockdown Override – Use the app to remotely configure which users are allowed to access a door during Lockdown and also cancel Lockdown.
Zone Bypass (iPhone Only) - In the Virtual Keypad App, you can now bypass a zone using the Zone Status screen. This feature is coming soon to Android.
These Features require XT Series or XR Series v182 or above. For more information, please review the instructions available in this Technical Update. If you have any questions, please contact DMP Inside Sales at 877-757-4367 or at InsideSales@dmp.com.
