Ademco Honeywell ECP Support
The CellComSLCF Universal Fire Alarm Cellular Communicator launched last week and includes Ademco ECP keypad bus support. The CellComSLCF provides fully supervised alarm communication over CDMA networks and is approved for commercial fire applications and meets NFPA Standards.
The primary function of this cellular unit is to provide alarm dealers with a fire solution to update existing customer panels or takeovers. Dealers don’t have to worry about lock-out codes; they can just add the DMP CellComSLCF unit onto the existing ‘dialer’ installations and benefit from DMP Alarm features. Panic, Fire and Burglar signals will be sent to DMP receivers with full reporting capabilities.
“In the event of fire, it’s essential to have a fast, reliable communication path from the panel to the Central Station,” said Vice President of Product Design, Jeff Britton. “When the CellComSL series of universal alarm communicators was introduced, it created an easy upgrade path to provide older panels with all the benefits of cellular communication. The new CellComSLCF takes those benefits a step further by adding the ability to use the communicator in commercial fire systems.”
Once installed, the communicator captures the Contact ID, and forwards it to the selected Central Station using the account number entered by the installer. The communicator can also be connected to the host panel using four zone inputs or even monitor the alarm bell output to sense the bell cadence.
Ademco ECP Keypad Bus Support allows installers to connect a CellComSL Communicator to the Ademco panels Keypad Bus so users can utilize the DMP Virtual Keypad app, as well as take advantage of Z-Wave® features. By using the CellComSL to upgrade older Ademco panels, these older systems will have a new Cellular Communications Upgrade, plus, Z-Wave support for lights, locks, thermostats and garage doors. When using the Virtual Keypad app attached to an Ademco Panel Keypad Bus, the app will automatically use the "Stay, Away" verbiage to match the system keypad and support user codes from the panel.
Full CellComSLCF system programming over cell is available using Virtual Link which includes zone information and Central Station communications. Virtual Link allows companies to deploy CellComSL's at an accelerated rate, quickly programming them from the same website that activates the unit, to keep up with the demand of 2G upgrade requirements.
The CellComSLCF meets the NFPA 72 standard for single communications technology and can be added to most existing panels.
