What is benefit of Areas over Zones ?
« on: March 07, 2015, 05:02:38 PM »
Hi friends, I am new to DMP and Sometimes i came across XR 500 panels with Areas instead of any zones.

How are these areas different from zones and what is the benefit of programming areas over zones ?

Thanks

They are 2 different things.  Zones are the protected points that reside in an area.  An area is what is armed and Disarmed.   In most every other system you have a perimeter area and an interior area.  DMP has that as well,  but also allows you to create up to 32 areas that can contain up to 574 zones.  This gives you greater flexibility for arming safes,  vaults,  high security rooms,  detached garage, and what ever else.

Coming across Areas with no zones...

DMP calls this virtual Areas.. This is often done when utilizing access control.  DMP grants access to areas not doors.  If that "Area" of the building does not have intrusion zones then there will be none assigned to it. This gives the administrator the ability to restrict access to users.
