The XTLtouch™ from Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) is an enhanced, all-in-one security panel. It combines DMP’s elegant, intuitive 5″ graphic touchscreen keypad with the XTLplus.
“The XTLtouch represents the natural extension of our proven XT and XTLplus security technology,” says DMP Vice President of Sales Mark NeSmith. “Our XTLplus set the standard for security, fast installations, and ease of operation. We’re taking that technology and designing an enhanced all-in-one system.”
The XTLtouch security panel incorporates multiple enhancements like up to eight external 110db wireless sirens that can be placed anywhere.
“The first thing an intruder might do is try to disable the sound maker. But with the XTLtouch, since the siren won’t be coming from the main panel, it’s not alerting the intruder to where the main system is; therefore, it’s more secure.”
To ensure the best coverage across the premises, DMP offers the option of installing up to eight wireless sirens. Placing the sirens away from the keypad also alleviates stress for the end user who’s disarming the system. “If there’s a siren blasting in your ear, and you’re trying to disarm your panel, it’s nearly impossible to think. This takes away that stress.”
If the system isn’t disarmed in the designated delay time frame, the XTLtouch’s built-in Entry Check-In Protection guarantees that the trouble signal is sent to the monitoring center immediately. In the event of an attack, this is a proactive safeguard against a burglar’s fast tactic to disable the security system before it can send a signal.
“Entry Check-In Protection is based on the same reliable check-in technology that we’ve used for years, even for our high-security customers,” NeSmith explains. “Our messages never go through a third-party NOC where they’re re- transmitted. They’re sent to the monitoring center receiver directly.”
The XTLtouch also offers flexible installation options. This adds to the system’s security and functionality. “If the best cell reception or wireless coverage is on the second floor, that’s not a problem. You can put the XTLtouch wherever you need to and still add keypads exactly where your customer wants them.”
The new XTLtouch can support up to seven additional wireless keypads, all with an identical user interface as the main unit. According to NeSmith, “With only one keypad format to learn, users don’t get confused about the way their system functions operate.”
Installation options for the XTLtouch include tabletop, wall mount, or in-wall. “That’s part of delivering a complete security solution. These options ensure fast and easy installations while fitting the end user’s preferences.”
Compared to other all-in-one systems, the XTLtouch is one of the most compact yet it packs 99 zones of 900 MHz Two-Way Wireless, built-in Wi-Fi and LTE communication, as well as Z-Wave Plus support, all included in the base unit.
The XTLtouch includes system automation features offering users the ability to control lights, locks, and thermostats as they come and go or use the new Custom Actions programming to automate up to 20 different user programmable scripts. Video integration can also be added to the security panel with multiple options and controlled from the Virtual Keypad app or VirtualKeypad.com browser.
“We’re very excited about the XTLtouch—no other all-in-one offers this kind of powerful and flexible solution,” NeSmith concludes. “Plus, it’s competitively priced. We believe it’s going to allow us to more aggressively compete in the residential and small commercial markets.”
