Linear, a provider of residential and commercial access control, security and health and wellness solutions, has introduced the DMCMP3, a new accessory for the DMC1 and DMC3-4 Music/Communication intercom systems.
The digital MP3 and CD player integrates with new or existing DMC master units, transforming them into whole-house music and audio sources and making it easy to share and enjoy music, talk radio, podcasts and digital audio books throughout the home.
To achieve whole-home audio, Linear leverages a range of intercom and door speakers as well as audio-enabled patio and standard room stations to provide up to 15 rooms with AM/FM radio, and playback from CDs or MP3/phone devices via the 3.5mm audio input jack. Because it has its own power source, the DMCMP3 can also charge MP3 players and phones from the power- only USB-A port.
For convenient management, the DMCMP3 offers a five-button interface with a source select button and CD controls including: play/pause, fast-forward, rewind and track forward/reverse, with mode and option selection displayed on the DMC master unit. The DMCMP3’s curved edges and minimalist appearance give it a modern feel that complements any room décor. Faceplate colors include almond, white and black.
“The DMCMP3 is an ideal accessory for people who want to upgrade their existing intercom and security system to include audio playback from radio, CDs and digital music players,” said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of market and product development. “Whole-home audio is in great demand and the DMC system offers one of the easiest and most affordable ways for dealers meet their customer’s entertainment needs.”
