Do you ever have a feeling that you forgot to set your home alarm system when you’re out?  Would you like to disarm the system for a contractor that your neighbor is meeting at your house but you don’t want to give either of them your code?

With a remote keypad feature, where a virtual keypad appears on your smart phone or tablet, you can accomplish these things.

If you’re on your way to a family member’s house for Thanksgiving and you’ve already logged significant miles, turning back would be quite a hindrance—especially with holiday traffic.

A passenger in your vehicle can use a mobile device of choice and check the status of your home security system with a remote keypad function.

An exact image of your actual keypad in your hallway at home is right on your device’s screen.  You simply touch the screen as if you were pressing buttons on your keypad and it gives the same commands to your security panel in your basement, for instance.

Or maybe it’s as simple as you coming down the street and your passenger disarms your system ahead of time because you have a load of groceries that you’d like to just walk in with, without having to stop and disarm the system.

Napco Security offers a specific product called iRemote Virtual Keypad, also known as Gemini Virtual Keypad because it exactly mirrors a Gemini keypad by Napco.

As Napco states on its website, “Gemini Virtual Keypad is a mirror-image remote control keypad on a web-based interface, fully-functional and accessible online from any web browser or any PC or iphone smart phone anywhere in the world.”

With Napco’s product, it can even save you money in the long run because your security integrator can perform some troubleshooting or updates without having to make an in-person service call.

And as Napco also states on its website, to make it a complete package of remote accessibility, customers can add iSee Video—remote video monitoring to their package.  This can be accessed from the same video subscriber website.

For more information on the in’s and out’s of remote video monitoring, see our past blog article by clicking here.

So feel at ease when you leave home and enjoy the convenience of having your home security system’s keypad at your fingertips, wherever your mobile device or PC is available.


Thanks for spending some time with us today.
