Eaton has launched a stylish flush keypad for security systems in the commercial and residential sectors. The power management company’s new KEY-FKPZ keypads offer class-leading aesthetics and a simpler installation.

"Alongside our existing range of stylish keypads, there is often a requirement for particular premises to have an even more aesthetically pleasing security keypad solution that does not detract from the smooth surface of the wall,” said Tony Walsh, vice president of engineering and security product line leader at Eaton. “We have been creative in how we have overcome the challenge of low profile and ease of installation."

Unique in the security industry, the flush keypad is designed to fit a single-gang back box. In addition, the KEY-FKPZ range of keypads are compatible with the full range of i-on and Menvier panels and use software version 4.04 and higher. Unlike competitor flush products, which require the installer to make large holes in the wall, the new KEY-FKPZ can be fitted as a standard installation, enabling minimal disruption to the building’s interior design and a smooth mounting.

To meet a growing demand for a wider choice of colour finishes, the keypad’s discreet design provides the homeowner with the freedom to choose from five finishes – polished chrome, brushed chrome, brass, piano black and high-gloss white.

Eaton Electrical Products - Keypads"It’s all about meeting the customers’ style preferences as closely as possible," said Glenn Foot, security products technical manager for Eaton. "The homeowner can match the colour of the keypad to the finish and the aesthetics of their property."

The KEY-FKPZ keypads include a large LCD display and key backlighting. Once mounted, the navigation key provides easy access for the installer to configure, and the user to set and unset the security system. As an additional feature, the keypad menu allows the installer to turn the status LED on or off.

The keypad’s two zone inputs expand the installation options and provide greater flexibility for wiring additional zones. An integrated proximity tag reader is included with terminals for two fully supervised loop (FSL) zones or one four-wire closed circuit loop (CC) zone, which also has a programmable output and loud speakers connections.

Eaton offers a wide range of third-party tested security products that cover access control, lone worker protection and intruder detection and alarm systems.
