Mobile app for remote control of VERSA alarm system
The VERSA CONTROL application enables remote management of the alarm system based on the VERSA and VERSA Plus control panels, which are designed to protect small and medium-size premises, e.g. apartments. Functionality of the application makes it a handy tool for checking the system status, including zones and outputs, as well as for viewing the current troubles and all system events. The VERSA CONTROL application also offers the notification function using PUSH messages. Because this service runs in the background, the recipient is notified in real time.
Also the way of connecting to the control panel is innovative in the case of VERSA CONTROL application. It is extremely simple, since it does not require knowledge of the IP address and port of the control panel, but only the MAC address of the integrated ETHM module (VERSA Plus) or of the ETHM-1 Plus module, which is connected to the control panel (VERSA 5/10/15), and the panel ID, which can be quickly and easily read on the keypad at the user level. This eliminates the need to configure network settings in the premises devices.
