Communications – The Critical Link

Honeywell ipgsm-4g

When something goes wrong, you need to be able to get help as quickly as possible.  During a fire emergency being able to communicate with the proper authorities is crucial. One system in particular is getting a lot of attention.  This system is Honeywell’s IPGSM-4G Fire Alarm Communicator. It is a leading edge system for monitoring Fire Alarm Systems. Please see here for technical specifications.

Cutting Edge Fire Alarm Communication

The IPGSM-4G represents a leading edge communications solution for monitoring Fire Alarm Systems.  The IPGSM-4G employs a combination of Internet and/or GSM cellular communications. This renders the difficulties of traditional POTS phone a thing of the past. It is a fast, secure and effective alarm communications technology.  It allows for the connection to any Contact-ID fire panel and easily installs using Alarmnet. This is the system that Fire Marshals across the country have requested. It employs multi-path fire communications for faster and more reliable connectivity.  It also saves recurring job-site costs. Replacing costly dedicated phone lines means the IPGSM-4G  truly pays for itself!

Cost Effective Communications

The IPGSM-4G is a cost effective system. It will pay for itself by replacing costly dedicated phone lines (POTS).  The IPGSM-4G communicates in dual mode.  By default it uses cost-effective IP connectivity.  However, in the event of an internet failure, the IPGSM-4G switches to GSM cellular communications.  In addition it can be selected for GSM cellular only or IP only.
