Transitions in Technology

With AMPS and Traditional Land Lines on the Way Out, Much is Changing in Alarm Communications


All of the Telguard Digital solutions are UL listed and transmit data from virtually all security and fire systems to central stations using the cellular GSM network. Telguard systems transmit alarm signals over the cellular network when the telephone line has been compromised or if no wireline phone service is used.

Telular provides economical and seamless connectivity between the GSM digital cellular network and the central station. The Telguard Digital model TG-1 is connected to the alarm panel and is used as the primary communication path to send alarm signals to the central station. The unit is UL listed for Household Fire Warning Systems and Household Burglar Alarm Systems.

ALARM REPORTING PIONEERS

For years, when alarm dealers thought backup reporting, they thought RADSCAN. Now Honeywell enables alarm dealers to address the challenges of VoIP and cell phone-only residences and businesses, opens new opportunities to dealers to increase RMR by offering their customers tools and services which report over the Internet, PDAs and cell phones as well as remote surveillance video cameras.

Total Connect consists of many basic and enhanced services that allow dealers to offer whatever service combinations they choose. Basic services include SMS and Web-based remote system control and e-mail notification of non critical events. Once logged onto a secure website, consumers can control their security systems and perform other tasks via a virtual keypad using any web browser on a PC, compatible PDA or web-enabled cell phone.

With enhanced services, consumers can receive video notification of system events. When adding cameras to the system, a picture or series of pictures can be sent to a PDA, cell phone, etc. For more info, visit the www.honeywell.com.
