Texecom launches new Android apps for Premier Elite security systems

Premier Elite control panels can now be remotely controlled by smartphone, thanks to 3 new Android apps released by Texecom. The 3 apps offer end-user, master user and system engineer functionality:

SmartKey App
Emulating Texecom’s acclaimed wireless SmartKey interface, the SmartKey app provides end-users a simple, intuitive interface to arm, part arm, disarm and trigger up to 3 programmable outputs.

Keypad App
The Keypad app emulates a Premier Elite keypad interface. This allows end-users, master users and engineers the ability to remotely control the alarm system, as if physically standing in front of an actual keypad connected to the system. The SmartKey app is also contained within the Keypad app.

Engineer App
The Engineer app contains all the functionality of the Keypad app with added system engineer diagnostics and commissioning tools. Panel status, zone status, event log* and remote anti-code reset functions make this a valuable engineering tool.

All of the applications are available to download from the Google Play store now!
