Telguard, a division of Telular Corporation, and a leader in alarm monitoring solutions and services, announces the ability to deliver alarm signals from Telguard’s communication center to central stations, using the world’s most popular Internet Protocol (IP) alarm format, FIBRO, to Sur-Gard’s IP alarm receivers.
IP alarm delivery provides a variety of benefits to the security industry. By leveraging IP, alarm messages reach central station receivers more quickly than dialup solutions. Faster alarm delivery is always critical when it comes to intrusion and fire solutions where shorter response times are critical. For central stations, IP alarm delivery isn’t just about faster response times; it also impacts operating costs. With IP alarm delivery, inbound traffic to costly toll free numbers is completely avoided.
“We are excited by Telguard’s ability to support Sur-Gard’s FIBRO IP alarm format and by the combination of faster signal delivery and potential lower operating costs,” said Tim Creenan, CEO, Amherst Alarm. “As an innovative provider of high quality products, Telguard continues to offer solutions that benefit the entire security and PERS industry.”
Sur-Gard’s FIBRO IP alarm delivery is available today with all Telguard cellular alarm communicators. As an added layer of protection for Telguard dealers, should the central station’s Internet connection fail, Telguard will fall back to delivering the message using its traditional dialup methods.
“IP alarm delivery is just one more reason for security dealers to choose Telguard cellular alarm communicators for 3G/4G networks. The ability to transmit alarm signals faster and more reliably is a feature that residential and business customers demand,” said Shawn Welsh, vice president of Marketing and Business Development, Telular. “In addition to launching Telguard HomeControl to augment our portfolio of solutions, we continue to enhance our existing products with features that increase end-user security and our partner’s RMR from every installation, whether it’s new, a takeover or a 2G upgrade.”
