IP-Alarm is compatible with all existing and planned Numerex monitoring devices operating on the Cellemetry Network, including GE Security’s NetworX(R) NX-591E Cellemetry Module. IP-Alarm currently supports the Osborne-Hoffman OH2000E central station receiver with TCP/IP line cards as well as the Osborne-Hoffman Java-based Network Receiver. GE Security believes that the IP-Alarm solution from Numerex will offer additional cost savings for alarm transmissions to central station locations as well as decrease the time for alarm signals to travel from the NX-591E to the central station. IP development is underway on other receiver models and will be announced upon commercial availability.
Mike Marett, EVP of Numerex Operations, stated: “For added security, all data transmitted via the IP option is Triple DES encrypted, the highest industry standard for sensitive information. IP-Alarm adds yet another level of security, service and benefits for our security customers on the Numerex Cellemetry Network.” Marett added: “We are excited about this newest offering and we will continue to develop and offer network solutions that provide our customers with compelling business advantages.”
