TG-1 Express for Verizon CDMA Towers

Telguard, a leader in wireless alarm communications, interactive and home automation services now offers a TG-1 Express CDMA cellular alarm communicator on the Verizon Wireless network. The CDMA TG-1 Express is an ideal primary residential solution for areas where cellular coverage may be challenging. Based on the same proven, flexible features and functionality of the TG-1 Express for 3G/4G networks, the CDMA version helps reduce cost and Installation time in just about every application.

The UL listed TG-1 Express CDMA uses the power and backup battery of the security panel eliminating the need for an available wall outlet. The unit also features a unique way to connect to the panel for instances when the communicator needs to be installed remotely. The Single Line Interface Cable (SLIC) allows the power and telephony connection to be sent over a single CAT5 cable, similar to how computer networks use Power over Ethernet (PoE). With the SLIC option installers can now remotely mount the TG-1 Express CDMA without being limited by the availability of power or the expense of an RF cable run.

“Telguard’s TG-1 Express for 3G/4G networks has been a go to universal communicator in our residential portfolio because of its ideal price point, quality and overall reliability,” said Mike Putman, Director of Operations, Ackerman Security. ”Recently, we’ve had the opportunity to install the new TG-1 Express CDMA in both areas where we could never get coverage in the past, as well as in major metropolitan areas. The TG-1 Express CDMA has proven itself to work as flawlessly as its 3G/4G counterpart in every scenario.”

Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 Wireless Security System Introduction

The all new Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 wireless security system has finally been released to the public. This all-in-one robust wireless security system sports some very innovative feature’s including a new 7 inch touchscreen display which is a huge step up from the also recently released Honeywell L5200 system which is at 4.7 inches. Honeywell not only increased the size of the touchscreen display for overall navigation purposes but they had a larger picture in mind. They were able to allow four cameras to be viewed on the actual 7 inch touchscreen display. This is huge so you don’t have to jump from camera to camera to get an idea of what is going on at your property. Keep in mind that in order to use this feature it is necessary for you to add the Honeywell L5100-Wifi card or you will only be able to view these video clips on your Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 application.

The Honeywell L7000 wireless security system has also been given some major upgrades in the sense of the amount of zones you can program into the security system. In previous Honeywell LYNX Touch security systems you would have a maximum of 64 wireless sensors now you are looking at a total of 80 wireless zones with one hardwired zone that can be used for a normally closed sensor such as a door contact. This may not apply to the average consumer but, for a business or a large home this may be just the answer for you. Lastly the Honeywell LYNX Touch L7000 wireless security system is able to handle one extra garage door totaling 4 and one extra thermostat totaling four as well. Previous models of LYNX touch where only able to handle 3 thermostats and 3 garage doors.

All in all this is the premiere Honeywell all-in-one wireless security system and has been given the best in show at Electronic Security expo this year.
