XR Series Now Supports Multiple Chime Tones
and More on Version 172
December 20, 2017
The XR150/XR550 Series Version 172 now supports multiple chimes. One of the primary purposes of a well designed life safety and security system is to provide people with critical information whether the system is armed or not. DMP has introduced yet another step to provide critical information at no additional cost.
Multiple door chime sounds lets people easily and quickly distinguish by different tones where and when a zone is opened. A couple of real life examples would be having the chime sound from the front door different from the sound from the back door. This feature has true security applications both residentially and commercially.
In Zone Information you can assign a Night or Exit zone one of three distinct tones, allowing end users to easily differentiate between chime-enabled zones.
"This exciting new feature is another way DMP is making our products more customizable for end users," said Mark Hillenburg, DMP Executive Director of Marketing. "Our hope is that these small details will make users more confident and provide real life safety features whether the system is armed or not."
