Napco introduces new alarm communicator

Napco has recently introduced its new GEM-P1664 hybrid 8–64 zone control communicator. This ultra panel works with all Gemini keypads and includes 8 zones that expand to 64 with multiplexing. It also supports 64 user codes, 16 relays and our new Gemini DK-Series Door-Style and VPS Series talking multifunction keypads (included in two new money-saving paks). GEMP1664DK1PK is the first of two paks offering stay/away user functionality. This powerful kit comes with EZ programming, our P1664 panel and the GEM-DK1CA door-style custom alpha blue backlit keypad with built-in 4-zone expansion module.

Our second pak, GEMP1664VPSPK, includes the P1664 panel and our new GEM-K1VPS talking custom alphanumeric dual-line blue backlit keypad. This multifunction keypad features built-in pet-PIR, UL siren, spoken voice prompts and a 4-zone expansion module. The GEM-P1664 control panel includes two 2-wire fire zones in a large 12.5” x 14” x 3.75” locking enclosure and multiplexing to accommodate up to 64 EOL zones (from alpha keypads or multiplex modules to our low-cost GEM-EZM4/8 Expansion Module). Users can program partitioning for up to 4 areas and employ their Gemini crystal-control transmitters and receivers to work seamlessly with GEM-P1664.

User-friendly keypad menu driven Self-Programming Plus (for all zones) dramatically cuts programming time and labor allowing installers and integrators to set-up more households and businesses with GEM-P1664 in less time, thus increasing their productivity. What’s more, you can quickly up/download the panel remotely using our easy-to-use Quickloader software and use alpha keypad question-prompts for easy system set-up.
