Updating Your Alarm System Keypad

  Security Keypad and Phone App

What is the latest in modern security keypads?

In a world of quick, responsive touchscreen apps for just about everything these days, we are proud to offer a touchscreen keypad that is setting new benchmarks for professional grade security and simplicity for security alarms.  The Alula Slimline Touchpad merges intrusion and automation into one sleek modern security keypad and is as easy to operate as your favorite tablet.  The touchscreen keypad is wireless, full color, and the size of a seven inch tablet.  The customized tablet is setting new benchmarks for professional grade security and simplicity.  

What features are included in the touchscreen security keypad?

The system provides peace of mind as you take simple steps to arm and disarm your system, review security alerts, and more on your keypad.  The seven inch tablet sized screen provides you with a large viewing screen to comfortably see your security system keeping you safe.  Easily check your system status and the zones all in one dashboard view.  Simply touch the devices section to check in on both your intrusion sensors and any  environmental sensors you add on, all from one keypad or app.  

Can I use a phone app instead of the security system keypad?

Yes, the mobile app operates virtually the same as the touchscreen keypad.  Nearly identical icons and clean user-friendly interfaces create the smooth transition from your security system keypad to your phone app. You’ll quickly arm and disarm your system from either the keypad or phone app to keep your home safe and sound.  Home security is nearly intuitive with the touchscreen keypad and corresponding app.  

Does the touchscreen keypad display environmental monitoring devices?

Yes, the keypad has been designed to make smart home security reliable, flexible, and intuitive.  From a main dashboard screen with system status on the left hand side, your devices appear on the right hand side to provide any updates with your devices.  For example, you’ll see if any water has been detected by the flood sensor.  Get a reading from the carbon monoxide detector.  Watch for your lights to automatically turn on and off when you set a scene.  Adjust lights, locks, thermostats, and other Z-wave devices from one keypad.  Check out our home automation article for more information.  You’ll also receive real-time notifications on motion.  Create your favorites and scenes all from the dashboard to keep your home running smoothly even if you’re away.

Does the touchscreen keypad mount to the wall or is it a tabletop set?

The keypad comes with a mounting screw so you can hang it on the wall if you wish.  Since the keypad is the size of a seven inch tablet, many people choose to set it anywhere with a tabletop stand that also comes along with it.  Whichever the choice, the modern look of the keypad compliments most entryways.  

Can I upgrade to this keypad and still use my older system?

It depends on the type of the system that you have.  Some security systems have a smoother transition to the newer technology than others.  Technical research is underway to make the modern keypad a reality for as many homes as possible.  For more information about upgrading your keypad, give us a call to speak with a trained alarm technician at 724-836-0900  

If I like this keypad and decide to upgrade, are all of the devices wireless?
