The primary controller can arm and disarm the security system of the house while communicating with the installed components. However, if there’s a security zone breach the alarm will sound. On the other hand, it communicates with the licensed technician from the monitoring company to ensure optimum operation.

  • Key FOB’s to enable wireless remote access to arm and disarm the system using a mobile application
  • Different access codes for different people
  • Silent alarm ringing facility without notifying the intruder and etc.
