ATLANTA, Jan. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telguard, a leader in cellular alarm communications, interactive and home automation services, today announced that it is a single source cellular supplier for all Videofied® systems in the U.S. and Canada. A Telguard SIM, compatible with all Videofied systems, now gives dealers a service provider alternative for new systems and also allows them to easily upgrade existing customers to the AT&T nationwide cellular network in the U.S. In Canada, the same Telguard SIM leverages pan-Canadian coverage combining the networks of Rogers, Bell, Telus and SaskTel.
"For over 30 years, Telguard has been delivering products and services that enable security systems to communicate alarm data easily and cost-effectively. With the rapidly increasing trend for security to include video verification, it only made sense that Telguard provide that cellular communication path as well," says Shawn Welsh, VP of Marketing and Business Development, Telular. "Through our partnership with RSI Video Technologies, the provider of Videofied systems, dealers can now take advantage of the benefits of working with Telguard for video verification through both our turnkey video verification solution and, now, our cellular service for all Videofied systems."
Unlike other providers, with Telguard's cellular service, security dealers do not have to worry about overages. Uniquely, purchased data is pooled across all units regardless of the cellular service plan allowing dealers to best leverage the combined data of all their installations. The Telguard SIM, part number TG-VFSIM, is available as an order option from Videofied, and directly from Telguard for dealers looking to swap out their existing Videofied cellular provider of installed units. The SIM is quickly and easily activated via Telguardonline.com or with Telguard's participating central station resellers.
"Our dealers have been asking for cost-effective, reliable alternatives for cellular service and we are excited to have Telguard as a partner who can offer just that," said Keith Jentoft, President, RSI Video Technologies.
Along with Telguard cellular service, Telguard's TG-V2H Video Verification Starter Kit is also now available in the U.S. and Canada. The Telguard video verification solution, which includes a Telguard Video Verification Hub (TG-V2H) and an indoor wireless Telguard MotionViewer® (TG-IMV) with integrated camera and motion sensor is available through security distributors.
Telguard, a division of Telular Corporation, combines devices, communications and alarm processing into turnkey systems for monitoring intrusion and fire systems without a traditional landline. These field-proven solutions deliver 24 hour wireless protection by transmitting data from virtually all security, fire and PERS systems to central stations using today's cellular networks.
