ORLANDO, FLORIDA, ASIS INTERNATIONAL -- Responding to the ongoing trend of wireline replacement, Telular Corporation unveiled its solution to bridge the gap with the advent of the TelguardÂ® Digital Primary Residential Alarm Communicator, built specifically for homeowners who use Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and cell-only phone services. Based on Telularâ€™s patented technology, the new Telguard Digital model TG-1 transmits alarm signals to the monitoring station over next-generation GSM digital cellular networks.
While Telularâ€™s Telguard commercial, business and standard residential models are used for either primary or backup alarm communication, the Telguard Digital model TG-1 is designed for end-users who have decided to â€˜cut the cordâ€™. According to Strategy Analytics, 52% of adults in the United States are thinking about abandoning wireline phone service, the traditional method used for alarm systems to communicate for emergency response. Telguard Digital model TG-1 ensures economical alarm transmission to the monitoring center for homes without a phone line.
Designed for the no-phone line residential market, the Telguard Digital model TG-1 is economically priced with a dynamic feature set that includes full data reporting, automatic self test feature, and standard Contact ID alarm panel support. It also offers customers additional enhancements that are optimized for next-generation GSM networks, such as advanced 128-bit AES encryption to ensure the authentication and security of alarm signals and programmable supervisory relay output.
â€œVoIP adoption is growing rapidly and there needs to be a cost effective method to transmit alarms signals from the home security system to the monitoring station. The Telguard Digital model TG-1 is an answer to provide that function reliably and economically, â€ said George Brody, senior vice president for Telularâ€™s Telguard division. â€œThe TG-1 enables security and life-safety companies to offer reliable and cost effective solution to the VoIP or cell-phone only customers.â€
â€œTelular saw the need to bridge the gap of VoIP and cellular users that want to ditch their more expensive landline phone services,â€ said Mike Boyle, president and CEO of Telular Corporation. â€œThis solution not only addresses the end users needs, but also enables security dealers to generate new revenue streams,â€ added Boyle.
