Pyronix has launched its all-in-one security solution, the Enforcer V11, with Pyronix AndroidTablet, HomeControlHUB app and SmartPlug to incorporate security, automation and video in one platform, accessed via the tablet interface.
“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,” said Valeri Filianov, Product Director at Pyronix. “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 therefore allows for simultaneous messaging to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) and app via separate paths.
Installation is also enhanced, with a WPS button that 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 a range of new features with the aim of covering any installation requirement. This includes unsupervised zones to deliver car, van and caravan coverage; adding security peripherals when parked outside the property. While occupancy timers on zones provide a new care feature; protecting elderly family members by setting timers to generate a push or voice push notification to a family member via the mobile app, or even a notification to an ARC, if no movement has been detected.
The introduction of the new SmartPlug provides installers further upsell advantages and opportunities, by entering the smart home market with value-added integration. This provides smart home integration so that users can manage any plug-in appliance at the touch of the AndroidTablet’s screen via the HomeControlHUB app, where they can also access their cameras and security, even using the ‘sound-on-demand’ function to activate the siren to ward off intruders.
The AndroidTablet not only allows users to surf the web, but also open the HomeControlHUB app (available 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 and can also be used by the installer as a portable keypad on maintenance visits, while existing ProControl+ accounts can be connected to pull other Hikvision/Pyronix cameras on the property in to view via HomeControlHUB.
Laurence Kenny, the Pyronix Marketing Director said: “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.”
