DMP Intrusion Tested (XR Series)

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Mar 09, 2017

DMP is a major provider of intrusion systems, but lacks the global brand recognition of some of its rivals (such as Bosch, Honeywell, DSC, or 2Gig). How does it compare to competitor systems that have been in widespread use for decades?

We bought the X150 XR series panel plus 2 keypads and wireless receiver to test and examine the platform.

In this test, we examine DMP on this criteria:

  • Physical Overview
  • PC Programming
  • Keypad Programming
  • Wireless Integration
  • The Alarming Process
  • Access Control Onboard
  • System Price
  • Video Surveillance Integration
  • Monitoring Options

Inside, we detail our results that contrasting DMP's system to other typical residential and small business intrusion alarm systems.
