Philly chooses Keltron
WALTHAM, Mass.--Life safety event management systems developer Keltron announced in March that it was chosen by the city of Philadelphia's Public Safety Department to monitor (through its central monitoring station) life-safety alarms in a majority of the city's municipal buildings. The network-based Keltron system receives alarm information using various transmission technologies and existing fire panels. It can identify where an alarm is located and the nature of its environment. This system enabled the city to maintain its existing dialer infrastructure. The city plans to enhance its new system with full redundancy in the future.
