Honeywell has released a fire alarm communicator that offers a choice of either IP (Internet protocol) or GSM (global system for mobile communications) cellular as its primary communications pathway. The IPGSM-DP dual-path, dual-primary fire alarm communicator eliminates the costly phone lines historically employed for fire alarm reporting. Using IP and GSM technology together improves the reliability and speed of communications over single-path technology devices while solving many fire alarm reporting dilemmas associated with challenging applications. A simple configuration setup allows installers to select one of two modes of operation. In mode one, IP is the primary path and GSM is the backup with SMS (short message service) text serving as a secondary backup. In mode two, either IP or GSM cellular can be set as the fire alarm system's single path for reporting. A 256-bit advanced encryption standard is used to secure data traveling through each pathway.
