New from Pyronix is its Enforcer V11, with AndroidTablet, HomeControlHUB app and SmartPlug, bringing security, automation and video in one platform, and accessed via the tablet interface. The Enforcer V11 is aimed at homes and businesses.
Valeri Filianov, Pyronix’ Product Director, said: “The V11 platform is a major hardware and software upgrade to the Enforcer range of control panels, which brings with it a number of new and exciting elements. It adds the ability to use the new Pyronix Touchscreen Tablet Control Station, that is based on the 10-inch Pyronix AndroidTablet combined with the new dedicated HomeControlHUB app. The Touchscreen Tablet Control Station is connected to the local network via the Wi-Fi communicator and becomes a local programming tool and user interface to the home or business owners’ system, with the ability to not only control the Enforcer, but also the user’s camera system and SmartPlugs from one unified experience.”
The Enforcer V11 hardware allows two paths of communication with the Wi-Fi module built on-board, and optional second communication module. This allows for messaging at the same time to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) and app via separate paths.
At installation, a WPS button means pairing the panel with the router can be done with the push of a button. The Pyronix Touch Screen Tablet Control Station connects over the local Wi-Fi network, providing a secure and encrypted local connection to the panel even when the internet connection is interrupted.
The Enforcer V11 features unsupervised zones to cover car, van and caravans; adding security peripherals for peace of mind when such vehicles are parked outside a property. Occupancy timers on zones provide a new care feature; for example to cover elderly family members by setting timers to generate a push or voice push notification to a family member via the mobile app, or a notification to an ARC, if no movement has been detected.
The new SmartPlug provides installers up-sell opportunities, the manufacturer adds, in the smart home market. A user can manage any plug-in appliance at the touch of the AndroidTablet’s screen via the HomeControlHUB app, where they can access their cameras, NS using the ‘sound-on-demand’ function to activate the siren If intruders are sighted.
The AndroidTablet allows users to surf the web, and open the HomeControlHUB app (that you can to download from the Google Play Store) for complete control of the Enforcer V11 from the touchscreen keypad display. The interface pulls the installer’s branding from their PyronixCloud account to deliver a uniform system, including a quick share option for users to send installer details to friends and family. The interface can be used by the installer as a portable keypad on maintenance visits, while ProControl+ accounts can be connected to pull other Hikvision/Pyronix cameras on the property in to view via HomeControlHUB.
Laurence Kenny, Pyronix’ Marketing Director, said: “Changing user requirements means we need to constantly evolve. The innovations of the Enforcer V11 make it the most flexible solution we’ve ever released to the market.
“This marks a significant milestone in the development of the Enforcer system; a complete one-platform solution that protects the property, its occupants, the perimeter, vans, caravans, elderly relatives and much more, while also providing access to camera streams and controlling smart devices around the home.
“The capabilities aren’t going to stop here either, as we’re continuously working on new innovations that are going to continue to extend the solution.”
