New Touchscreen Keypad & 2-Way Wireless Technology
Elk Products, Booth 6036 —Elk Products announced two state-of-the-art upgrades to its family of M1 control products. New M1 additions include two-way wireless technology and an elegant Navigator touchscreen keypad, the company said.
ELK’s two-way wireless technology has unique benefits that vastly increase the overall reliability of this wireless system, such as acknowledgement between devices to confirm that signals get through and logic to repeat a missed transmission. Random frequency hopping ensures signal diversity and provides anti-jamming capability. RF power level is constantly monitored and adjusted to deliver a clear signal while maximizing battery life. To simplify installation, wireless devices contain LEDs that indicate battery status and signal quality. ELK’s two-way sensors can secure large premises with a network of M1 receivers.
ELK’s new touchscreen keypad, the Navigator, benefits both the end-user and the installer. End-users will enjoy elegant styling with a 3.5-in. color display and intuitive easy-to-use menus for security and automation. Installers will benefit from these new features with simplified keypad programming and fast touch response. Installers can customize the home screen with their logo and easily connect the Navigator through the M1/EZ8 data bus.
The ELK Navigator and the first release of two-way wireless products will be available through all ELK sales channels starting this summer 2011. A wide assortment of additional wireless products will follow.
