The Ness M1G and M1-EZ8 offer unequalled value. Unlike panels that may be strong in automation but weak in security (or vice versa), the M1 boasts a rock solid security foundation with the most imaginative and powerful automation functionality available.
End users will welcome the quality and futuristic capabilities of the versatile keypad, voice telephone dialler and the built-in telephone remote. The 500+ word vocabulary pleasantly announces system status, configurable in any sequence to alleviate user intimidation.
M1 offers the flexibility to integrate industry standard systems and components for easy upgrades and system expansion. In addition to the powerful digital dialler, the M1 has a built-in voice dialler, which can call any phone, on or off site, including a mobile Ness M1 – 208 Zone control panel & Automation Controller.
The Ness-M1, together with the Ness-RP Automation Programming software offers powerful, easy to setup and manage, life style enhancement features. The automation programming allows mixing and matching of lighting components, outputs (relays or voltage), thermostats, temperature sensors, and all the security inputs and features to integrate functions that add value and appeal to the owner/user/manager. Whenever/And/ Then rules can be set to turn on and off
Powerful Automation The high end security features include multiple user codes, multiple area operation and multiple arming levels such as Away, Stay, Stay Instant, Night, Night Instant, Holiday mode and other combinations. The onboard telephone dialler is capable of reporting alarm events to a central monitoring station and/or several private telephone numbers such as mobile phones in response to a time or day, a certain sensor, or the arm/disarm status of the system.
Remote telephone control
capability allows you to perform
tasks; such as, change the temperature
setting, control the water
heater, lower the garage door, set
lighting scenes, arm/disarm the
system, control sprinklers, and
more by simply picking up the
phone – any phone.
Outputs can be set to control door strikes, irrigation sprinklers,circulating pumps, valves, outdoor signage, refrigeration etc. Automation tasks can also be driven by the built-in astronomic clock which calculates sunset/sunrise depending on your geographic location and also takes daylight savings into account.

Power Supp ly • Heavy duty - 2.5 Amp power supply w/ 1.5 Amp continuous. • Dynamic battery test. • Master power switch and Low battery disconnect. • PTC (fuseless) resettable overload protection. • Multiple auxiliary power terminals.
The Ness NTouch Genie (NTG4) is a network enabled controller which interfaces to systems either via one of its 4 IR ports, RS232 port, TCP/IP port or one of its two onboard relays. Control & Automate your premises including; · Monitors, TV’s, Displays, · video sources, · audio systems, · amplifiers, · shades, · lighting systems, · security and automation systems such as the Ness M1, · and virtually anything you dream of... The NTG4 includes voltage sensing, macro driven controller that can be customised by the installer to cater for any of your requirements.
Genie Project Software allows code-free device set-up, macro development and totally customisable GUI creation. The NTouch Genie application enables an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to control the system. In addition to this powerful app, the GUIs are rendered in HTML so any Web enabled device including smart phones, touch screens and PCs can be used as control interfaces. The NTouch Genie can operate as a standalone controller, bidirectional RS232 capability allows it to also be an easy add on to existing control systems. Add another room, more equipment, or just use it to add web enabled interface capability.
Features Include · IR library built in with 348,000 codes to make installation quick and easy, plus learn and import IR facility · Two configurable GPIO ports (general purpose input/output) · Digital Input capability (does not take up IR port or require additional hardware) · Sense Voltage (video sensing) or evaluate equipment state (on/off) · Digital Output for control of turning equipment on or off · Analogue input to connect directly to line level audio or composite video to trigger events or evaluate equipment state · Configurable input parameters allowing tailored sensing parameters to the device generating the signal. · An internal GPIO port can be configured to act as a counter or frequency input to measure activity. · Four IR ports and an IR blaster – Route IR to any port for specific equipment control or blast it to a rack of equipment · Two SPDT relays for control of shades, projector screens, amplifier power up or turning lights on and off. · Bi-directional RS232 – for direct equipment control or to work with other automation platforms. · Power over Ethernet 802.3af for locations with no available power or in tight spaces that do not allow for an additional power supply.
