Telular Announces Telguard TG-7FS Sole Path Cellular Alarm Communicator
Telular Corp. recently introduced the Telguard TG-7FS sole path cellular alarm communicator for commercial fire. 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.
Compliant with section 18.104.22.168 of the new 2010 Edition of NFPA72, the TG-7FS can 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 failures to the central station within five minutes of an outage, the TG-7FS can be installed as the sole path for commercial fire installations.
“As a member of the Telguard Advantage dealer program I am excited to have access to the most up-to-date fire and security solutions to meet all of my customer’s needs. Now with the new TG-7FS I will be able to give my commercial customers the freedom to cut their landline and eliminate an expensive monthly payment to the telephone company,” said Ken Hodge, owner of East Texas Alarm. “And because the TG-7FS is compatible with virtually every fire panel, I can provide this solution to existing customers easily and inexpensively regardless of their currently installed system.”
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 five-minute supervision mode. By installing the TG-7FS in place of landlines, security dealers now have a new source of RMR and commercial business owners pay a much smaller monthly charge for cellular monitoring.
“On the heels of our successful Telguard Advantage Program launch, we’re proud to be the first to announce a true drop-in replacement for the landlines installed with existing fire systems,” said Shawn Welsh, Telular's vice president of marketing and business development. “We believe that the updated NFPA72 code, which now allows cellular to become a primary part of all UL864 fire installations, is further validation of the reliability and robustness of cellular alarm communicators.”
