Premier Security is now a Telguard authorized dealer and offers Telguard Interactive.by Chris Anderson, Premier Security Service Manager on 08/12/12
A New Addition To Our Products And Services
Premier Security has been offering wireless cellular alarm monitoring for a number of years now and has been an authorized dealer for Honeywell's alarmnet radios and Uplinks cellular alarm communicators. We are pleased to announce we will now be offering UL Listed Telguard Digital cellular alarm communicators on new installations and with takeovers of existing security systems when the customer wants to move to wireless cellular alarm monitoring as opposed to traditional landline monitoring.
With our existing customer base at 70% wireless cellular alarm monitoring due to the demise of POTS line communication, this decision opened up new avenues to acquire potential clients. The decision to use Telguard product lines and their cellular communication path was based off their product line that addresses 2G cellular sunset and their Telguard Interactive platform. Many of the existing cellular communicators on the market for security systems are using 2G technology for communication and will cease to work at the end of 2016. Other conflicting reports indicate 2021. Premier Security wanted to move to a product that would ensure communication for the long term without the customer having to replace the communicator within a couple of years.
The TG1- express cellular communicator added onto an existing security system provides a 3G / 4G communication path and Telguard Interactive works with panels supporting Contact ID transmission format without the expense of replacing alarm panels. Telguard Interactive is designed to allow consumers to remotely arm, disarm and receive system notifications at an affordable price.
Previously at Premier Security, if the customer had an existing security system and wanted smartphone control, we would have to change the existing motherboard, kps and add a Honeywell alarmnet radio. This has always been a costly proposition for the customer. It is now simplified to just adding the TG1 Express to most existing security panels with no other hardware change.
Telguard Interactive from Premier Security is provided with no contract and is available for the iPhone, Android and BlackBerry platforms. The free app comes ready to activate with the TG-1 Express installation. Or the customer can login from their PC or Mac.
Additionally when a potential customer calls in that is already using Telguard wireless monitoring with another company, Premier Security can take over the existing cellular communicator for alarm monitoring without having to sell the client a new radio.
Premier Security is excited to be offering the Telguard product line and services; our guiding principle is to provide the best wireless security system technology available at the lowest alarm monitoring rate in the Atlanta, GA area.
