DMP intrusion panel

Before you can use PIN padding, you must enable the function in Security Center by creating a Javascript configuration file.

What you should know

PIN padding determines the minimum length for PINs on the panel, and adds zeroes to the beginnings of PINs that are below that threshold. For example, if you set PIN padding to five digits, the PIN "123" is pushed to the panel as "00123". A PIN that is longer than the minimum will be pushed in its entirety.


  1. On the machine that is running the Intrusion Manager, use a text editor to create a DmpExtraConfiguration.json file with the following parameters:
    • isUsingPinPadding set to True
    • numberOfUserCodeDigits set to the minimum number of digits you want to have.
    The following sample shows the code for the .JSON file.
        "isUsingPinPadding": true,
        "numberOfUserCodeDigits": 5
  2. Save the DmpExtraConfiguration.json file and copy it to the Security Center ConfigurationFiles folder of your Intrusion Manager server.
  3. Restart the Intrusion Manager role.


PIN padding is enabled in Security Center.
