DVS-1200: 12-Channel Supervised Wireless Security Console (Discontinued)

The Nortek Security & Control Family of Brands

This product is discontinued

The Model DVS-1200 12-channel Supervised Wireless Security Console is a wireless console intended for apartments, condos, townhouses, homes, and any other sites that require 12 zones of protection or less. The system features a full-function, built-in keypad with an LED display of each sensor/transmitter. The DVS-1200 is a uniquely-styled, ultra-compact, UL listed console with a concealed antenna for surface, flush, or tabletop mounting. The heart of the console is a superheterodyne radio receiver. A rechargeable backup battery also fits inside the console.

The Model DVS-1200 has six operating modes and can be configured for one-button operation, for eight user codes (including duress).

An optional plug-in Model VB-2 board adds valuable communications capabilities, including voice prompts, touch-tone telephone access, and a two-way voice link for central station monitoring. Compatibility with the industry’s widest line of transmitters and sensors (Linear’s supervised DXS series and non-supervised DX series) means systems can be tailored by site and by need. Available models include door/windows, smokes, glass breaks, bill traps, keypads, and single and multi-channel personal transmitters in a variety of styles (handhelds, pendants, minis, and wristbands).

Installation and programming are made easy by Linear’s RA-2400 remote access software.
