The Helipad is a fully wireless, full status security keypad delivering several firsts to the security industry. The Helipad is the first touch pad to use a supervised Bluetooth Smart connection to provide two-way wireless communication with an alarm panel. It is also the first touchpad to use e-ink technology (similar to what is used in the Amazon Kindle) to provide real-time status updates. This low power, high contrast display ensures easy reading in high and low light conditions. The keypad itself uses capacitive touch delivering a sleek, clean finish for the customer. Helipad has an expected battery life of 1 year on two AAA Alkaline batteries that can be easily replaced by the customer.
