GeoArm, West Palm Beach, FL and Alarmnet, Syosset, NY, a division of Honeywell security, have joined forces to provide Alarmnet’s patented Web based monitoring technology. Alarmnet has been the nationwide leader in alarm communications technologies since 1986. Alarmnet’s state of the art network contains dedicated communication hardware platforms and services that provide extensive radio coverage in the United States and Canada. These platforms are redundant with back-up databases housed in two separate locations. In the event one system went down due to a catastrophic event the other system would back it up and take over without any service interruption. Both Alarmnet locations are housed with generator and battery backup to safeguard against threat to help guarantee consistent service without any interruptions. Additionally, GeoArm’s Central Station is redundant and backed up off premise to ensure a two layer signal integrity platform unseen in the industry today. Alarmnet’s network performs automatic supervision and maintenance of the network to ensure each and every signal is free of interference. GeoArm clients using Honeywell iGSM communicators have their signals (actual alarm, trouble messages) sent using Alarmnet’s network first to Alarmnet and then directly forwarded to the UL approved Central Monitoring Station. This expedited alarm reporting network reduces the reporting time and improves dispatch time when compared to a typical dialer-based signal. This use of superior equipment and Alarmnet’s network platform has helped distinguish GeoArm as a technologically forward looking company. Existing AlarmNet customers can now also transfer their AlarmNet Monitoring to GeoArm to take advantage of excellent alarm monitoring rates.
