Multi-path IP/cellular fire alarm communicator

11/05/2010


Honeywell Power Products introduced the IPGSM-COM, a UL-listed primary fire alarm communicator providing Contact ID reporting via IP (Internet Protocol) or GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) cellular pathways. The IPGSM-COM offers a more reliable, cost-effective monitoring alternative by eliminating the communications difficulties and monthly charges generally associated with legacy circuit-switched phone lines. The IPGSM-COM is UL-Listed to provide full Contact ID data reporting for virtually any fire alarm control panel.

Using the Honeywell AlarmNet network, a unique triple-path redundancy provides superior connectivity for life safety systems. An IP path is used for primary communications and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) GSM cellular for back-up. Should GPRS be unavailable, the unit switches over to SMS (a.k.a. text message) communications. A 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard is used to secure data traveling through each pathway.

Fire alarm signals are transmitted to central stations through Honeywell's AlarmNet network. Two locations of back-up databases are equipped with battery and generator backup, along with technical support 24/7 for uninterrupted service. The AlarmNet Direct suite of web-based tools provides dealers an easy means to register, program, monitor and command compatible products such as the IPGSM-COM.
