When Your Business Depends on Just the Right Temperature

December 14, 2018

Brian Crouse, Product Manager for DMP Wireless & Keypads

Does your company rely on assets that have to stay a certain temperature?

Even when your system is disarmed, this wireless sensor detects flooding, as well as unusual and extreme temp...  Read More

Local Communications Failure Annunciation: What is the Best Way to Meet NFPA Requirements?

October 25, 2018

Aaron McGhee, Product Manager, DMP Control Panels

Cellular alarm communicators aren’t made with keypads, nor are they designed with annunciators.
