Turbocharging existing Enforcer estates with V11 features, installers can upgrade systems quickly and efficiently to boost customer retention, extend system longevity and build repeat business potential, by delivering compatibility with the HomeControl2.0 smart device app, industry-first CarDefender, SmartPlug, AndroidTablet, DoorbellCam and more.
“The V11 platform incorporates security, automation and video in one platform and this kit enables installers to add this value to existing customers, without having to swap out the entire panel; providing the use of our HomeControl2.0 app to control their security, cameras and SmartPlugs, for one unified experience,” Laurence Kenny, Pyronix Marketing Director, said.
The ability to integrate the SmartPlug with the system enables the installer to enter the smart home market; upselling so that users can enjoy a much greater level of interaction with the system, such as using scenes or automations to switch lamps on and off as required, or linking with the DoorbellCam to switch lights on as visitors are detected.
Meanwhile, HomeControl2.0 provides a wealth of benefits, with biometric login, free personal help alarm, geofence reminders to arm and disarm the system as the user as they enter/exit the specified distance, view system status, cameras, SmartPlugs and more.
With Enforcer V11, users also have the option of using the AndroidTablet with HomeControlHUB to control the system and view cameras while on site or use as a conventional tablet. This interface also pulls installer branding from their PyronixCloud account to deliver a uniform system, has a quick share option for users to pass installer details on and can even be used as a portable keypad on maintenance visits.
Upgrading existing Enforcer estates to V11 also delivers compatibility with the SPEAKER/SOUNDER-WE for visual and audible indication of system activity across the property, as well as the industry-first CarDefender, developed specifically to combat vehicle theft – activating the house alarm, sending a notification via HomeControl2.0 or both if there is any attempt to force entry to or take the user’s vehicle, alerting them, while deterring the intruder.
V11 also provides interlinking fire zones which enable life safety devices such as the SMOKE-WE and HEAT-WE to be linked; activating all if any is triggered.
Occupancy timers can be programmed on zones to provide a new care feature that protects elderly or vulnerable family members; setting timers on key devices around the home to generate a specified response should no movement be detected, as well as unsupervised zones which enables devices such as the CarDefender to be added on cars, vans and caravans; providing additional peace of mind when parked outside the property, without risking false alarms when parked away.
“With changing user requirements and the innovations of the Enforcer V11, it was important to us that installers have a fast and efficient method of upgrading their existing Enforcer estate,” Laurence said.
He continued: “The V11 is a significant milestone in the development of the Enforcer system, which delivers a complete one-platform solution that protects not just the property, but its occupants, the perimeter, vans, caravans, elderly relatives and much more, while also providing access to camera streams and controlling smart devices around the home.
“Now, installers can deliver this to existing customers to boost retention, build recurring revenue potential and extend the system longevity, without having to change the entire panel – making every existing Enforcer estate an opportunity for the installer to capitalise on; upselling all the current and future advantages of the V11 to deliver even greater value to both their customers and their business. It’s a win-win.”
The Enforcer V11 Upgrade Kit consists of a V11-ready PCB, a new housing for the power supply and anti-static gloves.
