"Telguard devices have been trusted universal alarm communicators across Canada for decades, primarily in the residential and commercial intrusion space," said George Brody, president of Telguard. "Now we’re bringing our industry-leading fire communicator into Canada to help fire and life safety integrators offer a world-class cellular solution. Dealers can offer customers a solution that protects properties better and does so at a lower cost than using increasingly less reliable landlines."

The TG-7FS is a universal cellular communicator, meaning it works with virtually every fire alarm control panel. Using Canada’s LTE cellular networks, the TG-7FS transmits alarm signals from the fire panel to the designated monitoring station.  The unit can serve as the sole communications path for fire alarm systems, replacing landlines currently dedicated to the master control unit. Telco costs are eliminated, allowing the dealer RMR and full control of the system.

The TG-7FS is a drop-in replacement, featuring a dial capture, which allows for plug-and-play. It’s also highly configurable with an option available to power the TG-7FS from the panel.

The TG-7FS LTE-A meets the ULC S559 and ULC S304 standards and is listed for use in Canada. The TG-7FS operates on LTE networks across Canada, including Rogers, Bell, Telus and Sasktel, and will be available at security distribution partners in Canada such as ADI Global Distribution and Anixter.
