All New iBridge Messenger SMS & MMS Multimedia Notification Service
NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc, Amityville, NY is pleased to introduce iBridge Messenger, a complementary add-on and extension of its iBridge Connected Home line for dealers transitioning into the smart home market, and available for all new and retrofit Gemini Security System accounts.
iBridge Messenger is an SMS or MMS message notification service for subscribers who want to stay connected and in control of their premises’ alarm, video, temperature, lighting & locking, receiving custom SMS simple text messages or daily reminders, or enhanced MMS live video alert messages.
Because it is broadband-based, not cellular/GSM, it is able to provide event- triggered alerts plus VGA-quality video of the premises, pre- and post- the event or alarm using MMS, or multimedia message service, instead of just SMS, ie., traditional short message service. Users can select which events they want to trigger notifications and who should receive them – by zone, time, user, alarm, event, grouped events, and more, using the full information provided on the system bus, but in easily understood terms and messages.
Examples of some triggered events and messages include: Lock Door – front door remains unlocked, but system is armed; Johnny just left home thru back door (system was armed); someone just unexpectedly opened the pool gate, gun or liquor cabinet; or Dad did not open the medicine cabinet and it’s 1 hour past time for meds, etc. In an alarm, the subscriber will get a message of alarm in progress and get real pre/post video clips of the alarm event, viewable with a click, right on his/her phone, without logging in elsewhere.
