Keypads can arm and disarm the security system, intercom with other keypads and Dooor Stations and act as baby Monitors, as well as record and hear messages for members of the family.
The parts needed for Comfort to be used as an Intruder Alarm System are
- CP9000 Comfort Controller with 8 inputs, 8 outputs
- One or more keypads (KP03, KP04, KP05, KP06, KT03)
- Local or Slave Exapnsion Modules depending on the number of Zones
The Door station intercom calls the home phones and keypads in Security Off and Night Mode to allow users to talk to visitors. When the system is armed to Away or Vacation Mode, the system dials to mobile phones to allow users to talk to the visitor.
Up to 3 Door stations can be installed in a system. The RGR Ringer Module is required to produce a ringing signal on the local phones. Door stations may be in plastic (DP03) or Aluminium (DS01) and Stainless Steel (DS02). DM02 door station interface is required for DS01 andDS02.
A Universal Communications Module (UCM) is required to program Comfort via Rs232 (UCM/232F), Ethernet (UCM/Ethernet) or USB UCM/USB). The free Comfigurator software is used to program Comfort using the UCM
External UCMs are available to interface with third party lighting and automation systems like C-Bus, KNX, Dynalite, Z-Wave, Carlo Gavazzi Smart House, Crestron, AMX and many other systems.
Scene Control Switches are programmable designer switches which can be programmed to set any scene.
Comfort can be controlled by iPhone, iPad, Android Phones, and tablets
Comfort can send SMS messages in the event of system armed, disarmed or alarm (UCM/GSM is needed)
You can also send SMS to Comfort to arm, disarm and control lights and appliances
Also check out the Cytech website http://www.cytech.biz
and the Cytech Video
New Installers should buy the EV003 Training/Evaluation kit which includes the Comfort controller, KP06 and KT03 Keypads, UCM/Ethernet interface and UCM/GSM and is connected and pre-programmed and comes with all documentation on a USB drive. This is an excellent tool for learning Comfort, and can be used as a portable demo system
Comfort is not a plug-and-play system. This is a powerful system with a lot of capabilities and it takes some effort to learn to configure and program it. However all the doucmentation is availlable online, at http://www.cytech.biz/manuals.html and plenty of support is always available, in this forum and by email to firstname.lastname@example.org Training is also available, in the UK and other parts of the world, see http://www.comfortforums.com/forum40/1957.html
