The DMCIP Alarm Monitor from TWR Lighting is a highly sophisticated standalone product that delivers quality monitoring at a reasonable price. Though typically used to monitor tower lighting, the DMCIP Alarm Monitor can also be used to monitor other applications such as fire alarms, thermostat alarms, generators, door alarms, etc.
This monitor has 10 inputs that can be configured for contact closure or voltage alarms. A built in photocell monitor (that works with 120/240 VAC or 5-24 VDC photocells) has selectable day/night alarm timers and logs when the photocell changes from day to night and back to day. The cabinet door is monitored and can be used to generate an alarm for quarterly test or for tamper detection. When there is a power loss, an on board circuit monitors the battery voltage, disconnecting it before the voltage drops to low and causes damage to the backup battery.
A DMCIP SNMP configuration utility is supplied to allow easy configuration and interrogation through the on-board Ethernet or modem wireless interface, allowing the alarm conditions to be viewed at any time. Monitoring options for the DMCIP Alarm Monitor include: GPRS/CDMA wireless modem, Ethernet TCP/IP modem, or NOC software from TWR Lighting, Inc. Monitoring services are also available. ww.twrlighting.com
