So, our company has been having an issue when it comes to our product line offering for intrustion panels/small access control systems. We have a residential line we are happy with; we have a large scale enterprise/command center level system we are happy with, but nothing in between. I have been researching IPVM discussions and reports a ton the past few days and wanted to solicit some direct feedback for recommendations of product lines I should be looking at. Here's a little info from my end
- I'd like to have programmibility via software. I'm not a huge fan of programming the panel on site by entering in things on the keypad while holding a huge manual trying to piece it all together. We've worked with a few basic Honeywell panels and it didn't go as easily as I would have liked
- Multiple partitions would be key as the customers would be commercial facilities with 1-3 locations. We'd like to find something that either has its own suite of wireless devices or can interface with Inovonics wireless devices.
- We have worked with the DSC Neo panel in the past and did not have a good experience with it- they had software to program the panel but it rarely worked. The only reason we ended up getting it to run was because we had an Alarm.com module that made installation a lot easier.
- We looked into DMP and liked their line but meeting their quotas isn't something we can commit to at the moment.
I appreciate the input!
