Expand the features of your Honeywell Vista or DSC PowerSeries home security system with the EVL-3 Envisalink Internet Alert Module. Your system already does what you need it to do, but why stop there? With a module like this, you can communicate with your system remotely, no matter where you are in the world. This advanced Internet module is only compatible with hardwired DSC PowerSeries & Honeywell Vista alarm systems.

Uninhibited Web Access

The EVL-3 uses Internet monitoring and Internet alarm reporting via a standard Web browser, in order to place total control in your hands. Detect intruders, respond to alerts, and use the full scope of Web monitoring technology to arm, disarm, zone bypass and PGM control your system.

Go Mobile

The capabilities don't end there. You can take full control of your home or business from your PC, iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry or other compatible mobile device. Whether you're inside your home or thousands of miles away, you're always in control.

Don't Miss a Thing

With Web-enabled capabilities, you can receive instant alerts via text or email whenever your alarm is triggered. There is even a "time-since-triggered" featured that provides you with up-to-the-minute information on your system.

Long Distance Access

Let's say that you live in Los Angeles, but are currently visiting New York. You can program your module to allow e-mail and text message notifications to an unlimited number of addresses and phone numbers, so if sightseeing or business has prevented you from seeing an important alert, you can have the notification routed to another trusted family member or neighbor, who can then investigate the disturbance on your behalf.

Easy Installation

Installation is a breeze. This tiny module hooks right into your existing DSC system and travels the lengths of the Earth to give you greater control of your home alarm system.

The EVL-3 is amazing. I installed on a DSC 832 panel and connected the 4 wires and LAN cable and it just worked! I set up on their website, and it now fires off alert emails and works with my iPhone just fine. 4 stars as I am always looking for more and more from innovators like this and I do not see any recent updates, but I have no specific improvements that I could suggest either. I would say this is a great product for $100 that adds web/smartphone features to the otherwise dated DSC offerings.

Product works, but I found a firmware bug on this unit that eyez-on claims it will fix in a future update. Current firmware version is 120.Eyez-on claims no DSC programming is required, however they overlooked a specific option. DSC installers section 022, option 1 must be disabled. This is the option requiring a user code to access *1, *2 and *3 options. If this is enabled, the eyez-on polls the system every 250 seconds, when it hits the user code roadblock it resets the keybus in an attempt to clear the "issue".Since you provide your master/user code in the module's settings, this should work with option 1 on or off, but the implementation in the firmware is not correct.With this option off however, the unit works great. Setup online is pretty easy.

When interfaced to a DSC panel, nothing could be easier to install and get to immediately perform. This is a very elegant solution for remote control and monitoring of your alarm system! Setup is simple by just following the few steps detailed in the accompanying instructions. Best of all, there are no monthly fees and you are connected via Internet from anywhere in the world. GREAT Product!! I have not found anyone offering this unit for less than the Home Security Store. Some suppliers are charging $30 higher than Home Security Store. This is a great deal!

Have now added the EVL-3 to 2 DSC systems - this is the way technology should always work! I even connected to the routers wirelessly using a IOGear transmitter. What a system - easy to set up, rock solid connection and adds easy remote arming and notifications. Couldn't be happier. I only wish DSC would take a lesson on easy setup from the EyezOn folks! By the way, Home Security Store has the best technical support I've ever worked with!

It just works! I plugged it in and it started working without requiring and configuration. It has been working reliably ever since. The features are really great too. I would definitely recommend it for any security system.

I recently purchased and installed the EVL-3 on my DSC-1832 system. The install was very easy and it was operating as described within a short amount of time. My work schedule keeps me away from home for several days in a row and this device allowed me to monitor, arm, disarm and view zone open/closures remotely. I am very satisfied with the integration and functionally of the product and web-based interface is great. I did have to call my alarm company and have them disable the alarm station notification and then requested the installer code which gave ME control of the entire system. The best part was canceling my monitoring service. I tested the text alerts and would receive them almost instantly from alarm activation. I access the alarm via iPhone and MacBook flawlessly.

This is a great product! No more worrying if you remembered to set the alarm. You can Arm, Disarm, check status. Plus has email and texting notifications of events. It was very easy to install and no programming required on either of my DSC PS 1616 or DSC PS 1832 alarm systems! I have had the Envisalink EVL-3 on my system for 5+ months and highly recommend it to anyone with a compatible DSC alarm system. I've had a couple friends get one too.

Very pleased with this. It's like having one of my alarm system keypads right in my pocket at all times, plus provides free basic email/SMS alerts and the ability (for an additional fee) to use IP-based monitoring services without a phone line. Setup on DSC is very easy - no programming on the panel needed. (Ademco apparently requires some programming.) Note that the online portal is not anything too fancy and basically offers just the functionality of a keypad. If you are looking for some sort of remote control beyond what you could do on a keypad at home, you might be disappointed. I think this is great for self-monitoring. I am not sure it would be as great for using it as a monitoring service connection.

I needed this to track down potential false alarms and keep a status check on my system when I am out of town. It took only a few minutes to hook up and I followed the simple instructions, everything works perfectly. I can login in on my phone and arm/disarm or just check status- I can get a text or e mail if there is an alarm- exactly what I needed. Best $99 I have spent this year.

My intentional use was to act as a wireless key fob for when I am outside of the house. Garage door on the alarm system and the timing of getting the car out of the garage and closed was an issue. Hence, this easy installation beats buying, installing, and programing a wireless key fob. Plus, if you have OCD and want to know if you closed your garage door, etc you can look it up without turning around. I don't recommend using your app and driving but you can arm it over the internet and mobile app. You send an email link to yourself and click it with your phone and it works. I have a Galaxy4 an android phone and it works fine. The LAN software by computer is accessible by MAC safari or PC windows 7 IE8. The zones can be named in the website. It's a menu named manage device upper right corner. The website is pretty but you have to hover around it and click into all the menus to fully understand it. I was able to name the zone numbers. They don't come across automatically from the panel. I have re-entered the zone names. No big deal. I only use the free service. With respects to the email and texting function this appears to be a $60 service per year as I have entered my phone and email with verifying pins and it still doesn't work. I already have a monitoring service and the price is about the same. No sense in having to deal with more phone call etc. Also, the events log doesn't seem to work either. I suppose this works with a paid service. There is a small 5 event cycling log that is a couple of hours behind and misses some events. Overall, this modue has served it's purpose for me and I am happy.

I take back the email/ text comment as a paid service. It works as free service. About an hour or so after doing the verification pins it started sending the texts and emails. The texts and emails come out anywhere from 2 min to 30 minutes. Arming through the website doesn't generate an event. Obviously, you know its armed because you armed it. But, others on the contact list wouldn't know. Still a great product. I love it.

I was looking for a way to push alarm text and emails to my phone, and read about this device. I installed one in my Ademco Vista 15P. I've never done anything with alarms systems so I did have some problems getting the alarm system programmed. The instructions don't tell you what programming changes you have to make. In my case, when the alarm was activated the website would show I had an alarm, but it didn't send out a text or email. I searched forums looking for a solution, but couldn't find step by step directions for the layman. I eventually figured out I had to change the Zone Alarm settings in the alarm programming. That required that I update one of my control panels to an alphanumeric device. Once I got the programming figured out, it worked like a charm. It was everything I was looking for. An easy way to arm and disarm the alarm, and get notifications.

Super easy to setup. No issues with module whatsoever. EYEz-On website is a bit unorganized and confusing. The IPhone interface isn't an "app" it's a web page. It works well enough. I would prefer if the event list would list zone status in order of most recent interruption instead of the order of the zone numbers themselves. It's a must have in my opinion if you have a DSC panel. Big bang for your buck on this one!
