August 30, 2016
New Apple & Android Update:
The updated DMP Virtual Keypad App contains more features for mobile devices with the Version 5.3 software update on Apple and Android.
Users can take advantage of the updated customizable Home Screen tab. Customize the Home Screen tab with frequently used favorites and cameras for easy access.
Users can also take advantage of an updated Thermostat tab in both iOS and Android apps. Users can swipe left or right between thermostats. New color schemes help to easily identify what setting the thermostat is in currently: Auto, Heat or Cool.
With Version 5.3, Virtual Keypad users can now use the Apple Watch on iOS systems. Apple Watch function includes Arming/Disarming, History and Favorites.
For more information on the new functionality, please view the complete Technical Update, TU-0859.
These new features build on the already powerful capabilities of the App, including:
- System arming/disarming
- System and panel status
- Z-wave automation of thermostats, light, and locks
- Favorites, which enable control of multiple Z-wave devices with a single touch
- Rooms, a feature that allows users to take a picture of an area and add hotspot control of Z-Wave devices
- Real-time local weather
- View live video from cameras
- User-code management (add, delete, or edit users)
- Schedules: View, add, edit, and delete system schedules for arming/disarming, favorites (includes Z-Wave®), outputs, and doors.
- Faulted Zones: When the system is being armed, the App alerts the user to any faulted zones and allows them to be force-armed, bypassed, or the arming process to be stopped so that any problems with the zone can be corrected.
- False-Alarm Reduction. When receiving a burglary alarm Push Notification, “Is This A False Alarm?” is displayed, allowing the user to confirm or cancel the alarm by tapping "Real Alarm" versus "False Alarm" on the screen.
- Enhanced Video Verification: If cameras are on the system, users can click on the Alarm Push Notification and open the App to view a list of available camera views, giving them the ability to verify the alarm based on the video clips and live thumbnails.
- Door Control & Lockdown: Lock and unlock doors, and initiate lockdown for all public doors and Z-Wave locks (XR150/XR350/XR550 systems).
- Rooms with a View: Allow users to watch real-time device activation when clicking on hotspots embedded in the associated video stream.
- Camera Settings: Record on motion & alarm, flip image, and motion detection regions.
