The PC5401 is a bi-directional RS-232 interface that can accept commands and send event-driven or state-change commands to third-party applications and back to the control panel to create shared functionality.
For example, once a security system is disarmed upon entry, the PC5401 can be programmed to turn on the lights or send a command to a house’s HVAC system to automatically raise the thermostat.
The PC5401 is available at DSC Distributors. Also available is the PC4401 Data Interface Module for MAXSYS control panels.
