Access Control and intrusion Detection Has Never Been Easier
For users who don’t want to spend the money to have a dedicated server for their access control systems, DMP is pleased to offer Virtual Keypad Access™. It’s the natural progression of the DMP Virtual Keypad app that manages the intrusion system, and it’s compatible with new and existing DMP XR Series™panels with cellular or network connections.
The same powerful app that customers rely on to remotely manage their security systems also offers fully featured access control. Give your customers the flexibility to manage system users, schedules, holiday dates, and profiles, plus control public doors, view and record video — all with Virtual Keypad Access. Unlike offerings based on traditional access control software, users interact with the service via a browser interface or smartphone app, eliminating the need to use a computer onto which client software must be loaded.
“Virtual Keypad Access is maintained via the Cloud, which gives consumers the flexibility to remotely manage their own systems, or it can be managed for them by their dealers,” explains DMP’s Marketing Executive Director Mark Hillenburg. Either way, he adds,“You can add fully featured access control with an intuitive Cloud-based user interface to your intrusion installs for a fraction of the cost of traditional access control.”
Both you and your customer benefit from not having to worry about maintenance costs, down time, or applying software updates. And, the Virtual Keypad app is simple to use for Apple® iPhone and iPad owners, as well as Android users who want the ability to access a number of security system functions remotely.
The DMP panels have a robust integration of intrusion and access control within the architecture of their hardware; therefore, the software or web-based control is the obvious next steps by providing the same rich user experience. From the browser screen comes an advanced access control and intrusion interface that blends the best of both worlds into a single easy-to-use system that’s also easy to deploy.
It’s a solution that provides the user experience customers are demanding. The Virtual Keypad Access platform is always advancing with new features and capabilities, which are automatically made available as they are implemented. This ensures that the latest and greatest product is always available.
Here are a few specific Virtual Keypad Access features:
Multi-Site Management - Virtual Keypad Access eliminates time-consuming data management. When you need to add users or schedules, you only need to create that data record once. Multi-Site Management allows you to share that record with multiple panels or locations. These are easily accessible by choosing the desired system from a dropdown list.
Managed Credentials - This allows you to choose either User Code or Access Card or another credential in one record. This credentialing makes data entry faster and easier to manage.
Manage Holiday Dates - Setting Holiday Dates provides the system with special days when the normal opening and closing schedules are not used. Virtual Keypad Access lets you easily manage your holiday schedules, whenever you need to, and wherever you are. Adjust opening and closing times by hours or days however you need to.
Lockdown - This is available for XR150/XR550 panels by clicking the Lockdown button. All door devices programmed as a public door and Z-Wave® Locks will lock or unlock on the system with a single click.
SecureCom Video Integration - Virtual Keypad Access supports up to eight IP HD video cameras. View live video, trigger recording of clips in the Cloud from motion or events. Or install a local 2 Tb NVR that records continuous video all viewable from the browser or your mobile app. With video verification embedded in this solution, it will help eliminate false alarms and false alarm fines and allow system users to make decisions about when and why police are dispatched.
From managing access of people to preventing unauthorized intrusions and preserving video evidence, Virtual Keypad Access is the perfect balance of power, convenience and affordability in a single simple affordable solution.
