DMP Virtual Keypad™ App Enables Video Alarm Verification

Allowing Users to Cancel or Verify Alarms Using Live Video from the Palm of their Hand

Springfield, Missouri — October 6, 2014 — The DMP Virtual Keypad App automatically displays a live-camera view for the premises, enabling the user to view activities at the site and evaluate the situation. While watching the live-camera view, the user can choose to view recorded video clips from all cameras of the five minutes prior to the alarm. Based on their visual assessment, the user can verify or cancel the alarm from the same app screen.

“DMP pioneered Cancel/Verify operation, and now that feature is available through end users’ mobile devices with live video for verifying alarms," said Vice President of Sales, Mark NeSmith. “Video Verification is becoming more and more in demand by consumers – and now this technology brings this to them in the palm of their hand.”

In an alarm situation, end users receive real-time alarm notification on their mobile device that includes zone-information detail. Users can launch the Virtual Keypad app by hitting “launch” on the notification, to immediately cancel or verify the alarm based on their knowledge of the situation at the premises.

The app not only puts remote system control in the hands of its users, it also enables instant verification of alarms. This feature reduces delays in confirming alarms, ensuring that responders arrive as soon as possible. It also reduces false alarms, helping system users avoid responder fees.
