In 2016, the National Fire Protection Association’s NFPA 72 decided to phase out copper phone lines as a fire and security alarm option because of high cost and slower, less reliable signal and response. The elimination of phone lines has paved the way for the adoption of new, improved alarm technology such as cellular, Ethernet, and wireless mesh radio monitoring. Here are some of the reasons why your business needs wireless fire and security alarm monitoring.
Benefits of Wireless Alarm Monitoring
Compared to ethernet, telephone, and cellular alarm monitoring networks, wireless mesh networks provide many superior benefits such as:
- No communication fees
- No long-term contract
- Low cost of ownership and operating expenses
- Two-second reporting speed to first responders
- Signal acknowledged every few minutes
- Less signal disruption
- Up to eight signal pathways
- Low lightning strike vulnerability
- Fully trackable alarm data
Wireless fire and security alarm monitoring provides fast and reliable protection in the event of an emergency. The dependability of wireless mesh radio security alarms such as AES’s IntelliNet 2.0 will provide you with the peace of mind that your business is safe and secure even when you’re not there.
