Las Vegas, International Security Conference-Telular Corporation Telular Corporation today announced the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Listings for its Telguard Digital models TG-7 and TG-8 for commercial fire and burglary alarm communications. The UL approval is the first in the security industry for any digital cellular alarm system. Using Telular's patented technology, the Telguard Digital systems transmit alarm signals to the monitoring station over next-generation GSM digital cellular networks.

Telguard Digital is UL approved for alarm communications in all residential and commercial burglary systems. Telguard Digital models TG-7A and TG-8A have achieved UL Grade A Burglary and UL Bank, Safe & Vault listings, making them ideal for the most demanding commercial burglary applications. All Telguard Digital models are UL approved for primary alarm communications on Residential Fire systems and secondary on Commercial Fire Systems. UL is a trusted source across the globe for product compliance. Every tested device illustrates that it has effectively met the organization's strict safety requirements.

"Once again, Telular has demonstrated its strengths in the security industry by providing cutting-edge, fixed cellular technology digital alarm systems," said George Brody, senior vice president of Telular's Telguard division. "With the increase in cellular adoption across the nation, it is critical that our products for commercial use maintain a reliable communication link for sending alarm signals to the central monitoring station. The UL approval for our latest digital units is a testament of our ability to do so."

Telguard Digital offers full data reporting and an automatic self-test feature for complete and reliable alarm transmission. Customers also receive additional enhancements that are optimized for next-generation GSM networks, such as a unique wireless E911 calling capability using standard phone equipment; auto-format detection for easy installation; and multi-account/partition alarm panel reporting to support the most complex commercial security systems.

Telguard products are used by financial institutions, retail outlets, commercial facilities, government agencies, and residences across the U.S. Telular's full product range covers cellular alarm signaling for both primary and secondary communications, as well as the use of cellular to transmit voice, fax and data to back up an existing telephone system.

The Telguard Digital UL-approved TG-7 and TG-8 models for commercial applications are available for immediate shipping, while the residential version TG-4 will be available later this year. The products are currently showcased at Telular's booth #20085 at the International Security Conference (ISC), taking place April 5-8, 2005 in Las Vegas.
