The DualCom Universal alarm communicator is approved for use on FirstNet. FirstNet is built through a public-private partnership between AT&T and the First Responder Network Authority. It’s the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform that’s dedicated to and purpose-built specifically for America’s first responders and the extended public safety community. Not only does the DualCom make it easy to upgrade old systems to LTE, but as phone lines drop out, this solution gives a way to connect to older panels with dialer communicators only. Alarm companies can also give their customers the smart home features they want with automated actions, cameras and video doorbell all from the Virtual Keypad app. Also, the DualCom provides commercial fire communication with easy installations. It’s engineered with dual tip and ring terminals, working elegantly with existing FACPs. Using FirstNet for the transmission of public safety related alarms gives the advantage of Band 14 — the nationwide, high-quality spectrum set aside by the federal government specifically for FirstNet. FirstNet can be used by premises alarm units at government facilities, as well as businesses and homes to communicate alarm information through the network. Typical signals would be burglar alarm, fire alarm, medical alarm signals and other related signals.
