Telguard, a division of Telular Corporation, announced the ability to deliver alarm signals from Telguard’s communication center to central stations, using the Internet Protocol (IP) alarm format, FIBRO, to Sur-Gard’s IP alarm receivers.
“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, chief executive officer, 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 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.”
