Texecom control panels all have serial ports on board which allows for onsite PC and printer connection to allow security managers access to event buffers as and when required to investigate and retrieve any information required from the system. The Texecom panels have the most versatile communication formats in the security industry and all Texecom control panels are GPRS, IP, GSM, radio and landline compatible. All the aforementioned communication formats are extensively used in the South African industry. Texecom control panels offer a number of timers with seven day maps which add many advantages to the Texecom control panel range such as the ability to lock user PIN code into time windows and days of the week should this be required – switching of devices at selected times on certain days of the week.
