Ness M1 GOLD Security & Automation Integration System


Ness M1 GOLD Security & Automation Integration System


“Technologies you could previously Only Imagine”

The Ness M1 Gold offers unequalled value to System integrators, installers, and end users.

Unlike panels that may be strong in automation but weak in security (or vice versa), the M1 Gold boasts a rock solid security foundation with the most imaginative and powerful automation functionality available.

Integrators and Installers will value the flash memory firmware, RS-232 serial port, Ethernet connectivity option, fast PC programming, and ease of installation.

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 phone. 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.



Control security and automation functions such as arm/disarm, view event Logs, control lighting, view & adjust thermostats, activate tasks, turn devices on & off, make custom setting changes, access your favourite website, picture albums, music and other media all from the Ness superbright Colour 7” Touch Screen.

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 in response to a time or day, a certain sensor, or the arm/ disarm status of the system. 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.

You dream it, M1 does it!
