May 07 2012

Visonic Ltd., a leading developer and manufacturer of cutting-edge home security and safety systems and components, today announced the availability of two new wireless touchscreen iconic keypads – KP-160/MKP-160. The keypads support most of the daily user security system functions, such as: arming/disarming, initiating emergency response, fire and panic alarms, controlling home appliances and reviewing system status. Both new keypads can also be used with proximity tags or employee RFID tags for easy and quick arming and disarming in homes, small businesses and office environments.


The KP-160/MKP-160 keypads’ touchscreen and intuitive display make operating alarm systems easy. Two-way, wireless communication with the panel allows users to receive confirmation thatproduction_cap_body_image the commands have been successfully executed. Also, audible exit beeps inform users how much time is left before the system is armed. For enhanced security, the keypads can be used in hidden panel architecture to prevent intruders from locating and then disabling the control panel. The keypads are available in three colors: silver, black and white, and can be wall-mounted or placed on a table with stand.

 “With the release of these new keypads, the user experience of our security systems just got better,” commented Eetay Natan, Senior Product Manager at Visonic. “The keypads’ large, icon-based, LCD touch-screens make the life of both users and installers a lot simpler as it is easier to use the security system and to understand the status of the system. Also, with the proximity reader and tags, users are freed from having to memorize codes and installers can maximize their customers’ security by installing the control panel in a hidden location."

MKP-160 works with PowerMax systems (ver. 17 and above); KP-160 PG2 works with PowerMaster-10 G2 (ver. 15 and above) and all PowerMaster-30 G2 systems.
