UPDATE: Alarms Over IP

About Alarms Over IP

Our IP products make use of existing network infrastructure to offer better, more flexible, Document M compatible, systems whilst reducing installation time and costs. There is no need to install long runs of cable, somebody else has done the donkey work, bypassing obstacles, etc.

For remote monitoring, we offer our networked "traditional", vandal resistant, stainless steel, LCD panels and NIOS GUI workstations. Both types of device offer a Document M compatible remote, timed, acknowledge function. The NIOS workstation also offers event logging, site plans showing alarm source and fault reporting - ideal for larger sites.

All of our networked alarm systems offer battery backed stand‑alone operation with local beacon, sounder and acknowledge buttons. Our alarms work when the network or mains supply is interrupted.

For legacy systems, we offer a range of interfaces for transmitting traditional communication signals over IP networks, allowing us to take advantage of network cabling when upgrading systems or adding new devices to existing equipment.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
