DMP launches cellular service, product
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Digital Monitoring Products on Feb. 18 launched SecureCom Wireless, a new cellular service business to provide DMPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dealers with a cellular communication option. In conjunction with the launch of SecureCom Wireless, DMP also released its 463G Digital Cellular Communicator, which connects to DMPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s XR500 panels and sends cellular signals over the data side of the cellular network, said David Rogers, general manager for SecureCom Wireless.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“A major reason DMP formed SecureCom Wireless was because the service side of this particular product is so crucial to the success of the product that we wanted to have a little bit of influence and control on the service side to continue the loyalty and relationship we already have with our current dealer base,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Rogers.
The installation of the 463G device is relatively simple, said Rogers, Ã¢â‚¬Å“It plugs into the [XR500] board and receives power from the board and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really just a matter of installing a local antenna or remote antenna within the building,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
From a central station perspective, receipt of the cellular signal would require only Ã¢â‚¬Å“minor upgrades to the [DMP] receiverÃ¢â‚¬Â such as software upgrades for new supervisor messages but no hardware upgrades, said Rogers. The 463G communicator can be used as either a primary or secondary communicator. SSN
