Introducing the DSC PowerSeries Pro Touchscreen Alarm Keypads (by Johnson Controls)

The touchscreen keypad is easy to install and simple to program with a user-friendly interface packaged in a low-profile white case that easily blends into any décor.

The keypad has been designed with the user and installer in mind. For the user, menu driven, intuitive screens with large buttons make programming very easy to configure desired options. For example, to access the Fire, Medical, Panic keys, users just press the EMERGENCY button on the sidebar. LED status lights on the bottom of the frame provide a quick visual check on the security system. Programming of labels is made simple through the ‘QWERTY’ keypad.

AlarmNet and Total Connect 2.0 Global Outage has been fully restored!

The AlarmNet network experienced a brief 12 hours of downtime between 3/13/22 to 3/14/22.

Resideo’s AlarmNet and Total Connect 2.0 interactive app services experienced a global outage on 3/13/22 starting at approximately 9 PM ET.

Some conspiracy theorists out there thought it was a ransomware attack. Well it turns out that you can now take a deep breath, as Resideo strongly denied those claims. It seems the reason for the outage is quite embarrassingly simple, it had to do with their environmental system.

Total Connect 2.0 has now been fully restored within about 12 hours or so of it initially going down. GeoArm has confirmed at approximately 2:30 PM ET (on 3/14/22) that both Apple iOS and Android devices are now able to successfully connect again. Resideo has confirmed that Total Connect 2.0 is restored as well.

For most GeoArm customers, you do not need to do anything at all. However, we have found upon restoral for some panels, such as the LYNX Touch WiFi that they are not successfully reconnecting. If applicable, in most cases all you have to do is reboot the panel. If this does not work than go back through the WiFi settings and rejoin your network.
