Highly configurable using an embedded web server and EZ configuration wizard Vizulinx provides a whole range of options for remote monitoring and system integration of Kentec fire alarm systems.
SMS text messaging can be provided using LAN or USB GSM connectivity. E-mail messaging can be provided using LAN or USB GSM/Wi-Fi connectivity. Both communication methods can provide immediate notification to managers, staff, maintenance and service engineers of a change in panel status i.e. alarm, fault etc. wherever they are. Earlier notification enables a more effective response which can reduce system downtime and improve false alarm management.
Format of e-mail and SMS messages are user configurable, information shown in the message can be customised as required.
