The Interlogix 60-924-RF-TS Two-Way Talking Touch Screen serves as a secondary controller for a Simon System. The device features a 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen display that makes it easy for users to control their Simon Panel and any programmed Z-Wave devices from a second area of the home or business. Up to four of these touch screens can be programmed with a single Simon alarm panel, giving users a greater number of options when designing their security setup. Overall, the touch screen keypad makes for a great addition to expand control and offer a more convenient location for viewing the status of the system in a secondary location.
Many alarm system owners want a secondary on-site device for controlling their system. For example, they might want a panel near the back door or basement for when they enter or exit the house from one of those areas. The Interlogix 60-924-RF-TS Touch Screen fulfills that requirement for end users and much more. The device provides full arming and disarming capabilities, and it allows for home automation control for those with Z-Wave devices. This makes it a great choice for larger properties where a user might not always be near the primary controller.
Right from the main screen, a user can see whether any motions have been activated and whether any doors, windows or cabinets have been opened. This is great for quickly checking the current status for the system overall. Different types of Z-Wave devices are also easy to control, with options for lights, locks and thermostat operation being readily accessible at your fingertips from multiple locations. The touch screen also offers various arming options, complete with entry delay selections and sensor bypass capabilities.
Another feature of the two-way touch screen is the ability to sync with the Alarm.com interactive service. Alarm.com provides local weather information so that a user can quickly check the current and upcoming weather right from the display screen. A user can also set different levels of access control for the device, based on whether it is in a more secure or less secure location. Finally, the touch screen offers full voice and chime just like any Simon Panel.
Please note that the Interlogix Two-Way Talking Touch Screen is not a standalone security system. It is simply a secondary controller for a Simon Alarm System that has already been installed. The device cannot be used on its own to interact directly with security sensors. Only purchase this device if you are looking for a secondary point of control for your compatible Interlogix Security System. If you are in the market for a new, all-in-one wireless alarm system we carry several options.
