LAS VEGAS, USA (AVING Special Report on 'ISC West 2008') -- <Visual News> DSC(www.dsc.com) presented its GSM wireless communicator ‘GS3060’ during ISC West 2008, which connects the alarm control panel to the GSM network and reports alarm signals directly to a central monitoring station.
For those customers not using a traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN) phone line, the GS3060 can be utilized as a primary alarm communicator.
The GS3060 uses the GPRS data channel of the GSM network to ensure low-cost, high-speed and reliable alarm communications and is compatible with most control panels that communicate using the Contact ID format.
The GS3060 is installed between the telephone connection of a control panel and telephone line. When used in a backup role, the communicator assesses the connection to the PSTN phone line, and if that has failed, it then connects to the GSM network to send an alarm signal to the monitoring station.
In a primary role, the communicator simply sends the alarm transmission over the GSM network immediately. Alarm signals are transmitted directly without the need of a clearinghouse to the IP line card of the monitoring station receiver (such as Sur-Gard System II/System IIl).
