Traditionally, alarm transmitters have required dedicated phone lines to send out alerts. With the advent of IP alarm transmitters, alarm systems can now notify appropriate personnel through the Internet. These IP alarm transmitters provide so many benefits, they’re almost essential for a secure facility.
As this article points out, IP alarm transmitters can be configured in a myriad of ways. Personnel at a central location can receive alerts from many remote locations. Alerts can go to several recipients so a warning can get out even if one or more locations is disabled.
Even when there is no emergency, IP alarm transmitters are still at work ensuring the alarm system is operating correctly. If a device stops communicating with a transmitter, the transmitter can immediately inform security personnel and direct them to the device that’s malfunctioning.
IP alarm transmitters can save you the cost of maintaining a dedicated phone line for your alarm system. However, in the event of a computer failure or Internet disruption, IP alarm transmitters can still seize an existing phone line, usually a fax line, to send an alert.
