ORLANDO, FLORIDA, ASIS INTERNATIONAL -- Telular Corporation unveiled the latest in cellular alarm security with its new Telguard® Digital model TG-4 for small business, home office and residential markets. Using Telular’s patented technology, the new Telguard Digital model TG-4 transmits alarm signals to the monitoring station over next-generation GSM digital cellular networks.

Telular’s Telguard fixed-cellular systems transmit alarm and security signals over the cellular network when the telephone line has been disrupted compromised, or if no wireline phone service is used. The economical TG-4 model is built on advanced digital cellular technology found in the UL-listed commercial models – Telguard Digital TG-7 and TG-8 – launched earlier this year. It provides alarm panel support adhering to industry standards such as Contact ID, SIA2 and pulse formats.

“Responding to the price-conscious alarm security industry, we have built and priced the TG-4 specifically for the small business and residential market. With most small businesses being owner-operated, the TG-4 is application- and price-friendly, and delivers reliable alarm transmissions via the cellular network to ensure that they are protected 24x7.” said George Brody, senior vice president for Telular’s Telguard division. “The TG-4 also provides new revenue opportunities for security and life safety companies and added value for their small businesses and residential customer base.”

“We are focused on creating new innovative and cost effective ways for residential and small businesses to protect their investments”, said Mike Boyle president and CEO of Telular Corporation. “With this latest product we address the end users issues without sacrificing quality for price”, added Boyle.

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 advanced 128-bit AES encryption to ensure the authentication and security of alarm signals, and auto-format detection for easy installation.

The Telguard Digital TG-4 model will start shipping in November 2005, along with the Telguard Digital primary residential TG-1 model for homes using Voice-over-IP and cell-only phone service. The products will be showcased at Telular's booth #2460 at ASIS International taking place September 12-14, 2005 in Orlando, Florida.
