GSM - Cellular Communicator
The Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC) is the not for profit organization that tests and approves life safety, fire alarms and security products. Products sold in Canada for these purposes will have a label that identifies the product as "ULC Listed."
The signals sent to a monitoring station are the lifeline of security within the industry. ULC has recognized that if you provide a second signal path for your alarm systems, the possibility of a signal not reaching the monitoring station is greatly reduced.
These days, conventional telephone service can be disrupted through a number of scenarios such as unintentional disconnection, telephone line sabotage, telephone network troubles etc. Customers that use a telephone service provided by a cable company or internet service provider are subject to communication problems with common power outages or service updates.
For these reasons the security industry, as well as organizations such as ULC endorse and recommend the use of redundant backup communication to ensure that critical alarm signals reach the monitoring station for dispatch of emergency responders.
The GSM wireless communicator is an inexpensive way to upgrade your system to an enhanced security level. This service may be required by insurance companies or regional authorities when dealing with systems that monitor fire, life safety, or high risk burglary applications such as liquor outlets, pharmacies and computer stores etc.
If you do not have telephone service at your home, and wish to be monitored a GSM cellular communicator can be configured as your primary communication source.
