The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) was founded in 1896 and has made it its mission to focus on reducing fire-related hazards. The association also looks to bring in consensus regarding various issues such as codes and standards, training, research and other aspects of fire control. Helping NFPA in this cause, Telular (News - Alert) Corporation recently revealed that its TG-7FS cellular communicator for 3G/4G networks now supports the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 2013 edition for sole path communications.
Now with the help of The NFPA 2013 Edition, cellular communications can be monitored for commercial purposes.
The compliance of TG-7FS cellular communicator with NFPA 2013 reduces the price of sole-path service. Users can now employ TG-7FS as the major communications path for their commercial fire alarm systems. The solution also offers cellular alarm communications for security dealers.
The TG-7FS is relatively simple to use, where users can simply remove the plug of the landline and connect the new cellular communicator. It will not create any hindrance in the functioning of master control unit and central station; in fact, the company claims that they will not even notice the difference.
“We are proud to once again deliver a cellular solution that keeps pace with NFPA guidelines," said Shawn Welsh, vice president of marketing and business development, Telular. "Adding NFPA 72 2013 compliance to the TG-7FS, a true drop-in replacement for the landlines installed with existing fire systems, is another example of our commitment to product innovation. To reflect the lower cellular supervision rate, we've lowered our price for sole-path supervision by nearly 30 percent.”
In 2011, the company introduced its Telguard Interactive smart phone app for residential communicators. This app is useful on iPhone, Android and BlackBerry (News - Alert) platforms and allows users to start or switch off their security systems remotely. Apart from that, the app also sends notifications to users about the status of the alarm.
