TMCNet:  The Telguard universal communicator now compliant with sole path use

The Telguard universal communicator now compliant with sole path use

Jan 10, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Telular Corp. (NASDAQ: WRLS) said that the Telguard TG-7FS cellular communicator for 3G/4G networks is compliant with the National Fire Protection Association 2013 edition for sole path communications.

The NFPA 2013 Edition allows sole path cellular communications to be supervised for commercial fire systems once every 60 minutes, instead of every five minutes as required by the 2010 edition. In conjunction with code compliance, Telguard has reduced sole-path service pricing to a more economical price.

The NFPA 2013, section 26.6.3.1.5 Single Communications Path, allows the TG-7FS to serve as the primary communications path for commercial fire alarm systems, replacing all of the landlines customers currently dedicate to their master control unit. By being able to signal the central station within sixty minutes of a failure of the communication path, the TG-7FS can be installed as the sole path for commercial fire installations. UL864 listed and dial capture-based, the TG-7FS gives security dealers a cellular alarm communications solution for both new and existing commercial customers who want to eliminate their landlines and save money. In addition to serving as a sole path solution, the TG-7FS universal communicator can also be installed as part of commercial fire systems for primary or backup communications.

On average, cellular monitoring costs the end user significantly less than a dedicated landline. For existing installations, all landlines can be swapped for a single TG-7FS because of the new sixty-minute supervision mode. By installing the TG-7FS in place of landlines, security dealers now have a new source of RMR from providing the communications pathway to commercial business owners. The business owners, in turn, will be pleased that they pay a much smaller monthly charge for cellular monitoring than they did for landlines.

Telguard, a division of Telular Corp., combines devices, communications and alarm processing into turnkey systems for monitoring intrusion and fire systems without a traditional landline. For more information, visit www.Telguard.com.
