DMP’s CellCom universal alarm communicator provides ECP communication with Honeywell VISTA panels, giving those customers the ability to arm, disarm, and manage their user codes. Those customers also have the flexibility to do all that remotely through the Virtual Keypad app. Now capabilities have expanded with the DualCom Dual Alarm Communicator that can be connected to a Vista series ECP bus, and with Remote Link Version 1.92 provides the ability to program the Honeywell panel remotely using Honeywell’s Compass downloading software.

This is an exciting opportunity, said Aaron McGhee, product manager for DMP control panels. “Now that we have this capability through the new DualCom — and will soon on the CellComs — our dealers can easily maintain VISTA panels they have taken over using the DMP communicator,” he says. “For example, if your customer needs to add a door contact, you’ll be able to easily add that zone and do the programming remotely. You’ll use Compass to connect through the DualCom or CellCom to remotely program in that new zone and send communication to the VISTA panel.”

This new solution also gives a way to connect to older VISTA panels with dialer communicators only. “As phone lines drop out, now you have a way to add a device to those older panels and a way to program them, McGhee said. “You don’t need to replace them or get a Honeywell device to do the job. The DMP communicator facilitates it for you.”
