DMP Virtual Keypad Now Integrates With Digital Watchdog Spectrum VMS
When users receive a notification from their DMP panel, they will be able to view all of their connected cameras and video playback with one interface.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — DMP announces the integration of its Virtual Keypad with Digital Watchdog’s flagship DW Spectrum video management software.
End users can now use DW Spectrum software through their Virtual Keypad app or VirtualKeypad.com. Whenever they receive a notification from their DMP panel, they’ll be able to view all of their connected cameras and video playback, all with one interface.
To enable this new feature, select Digital Watchdog from the list of video options in Dealer Admin or the Tech app.
Depending on how your customers prefer using Spectrum, you can set it up so they’ll either use the DW Spectrum server or the DW Cloud.
DMP says this integration delivers an easy-to-use and fully featured IP video management software solution with onboard analytics.
“Digital Watchdog is a respected leader in the industry, and we’re pleased to expand our partnership,” says Mark Hillenburg, vice president of Marketing for DMP. “With the DW Spectrum integration, we’re able to give our mutual customers a greater level of convenience than they’ve had before.”
Virtual Keypad app and Tech app updates are available for download, free of charge, from the Google Play store and the Apple app store.
Virtual Keypad Gains System Panic
Dealers can now enable a system panic features for customers that can display Police, Emergency and Fire panics in the menu.
“Because most people have their phones with them, we wanted customers to be able to trigger a system panic if they needed to, even if the keypad isn’t nearby,” says Clayton Tummons, vice president of software for SecureCom Wireless.
To enable your customers’ System Panic feature today, Dealer Admin Version 2.40.0 allows you to go to the App User section where you can select the panic options to give to your customer. Depending on what they need or what you want them to have, you’ll check the appropriate boxes.
When they log in to their Virtual Keypad app or website account, they’ll see “Panic” displayed in their menu. To initiate a panic, simply tap Panic, then press and hold the desired panic option for three seconds.
“The System Panic functions the exact same way as if you’d initiated the panic from the keypad,” Tummons adds. “We just want to make sure customers can always have access to their systems, wherever they are.”
