The TG-1 Express, available in the U.S. and Canada, is an extension of Telguard’s existing primary residential cellular communicator product line. It enhances the Telguard portfolio and offers security dealers an additional versatile, cost-effective option for their no-landline customers. Over 80% smaller than competitive standalone communicators, the TG-1 Express was designed with the needs of both the security dealer and the homeowner in mind. Its flexible features and functionality help reduce installation time at any customer site.
The TG-1 Express supports virtually all alarm formats (Contact ID, SIA, SIA2, DMP, Modem lle/llla2 and Pulse formats) using dial capture for universal panel compatibility.
Telguard now offers an approach for supporting listen-in, two-way voice verification over cellular. The TG-1 Express provides a robust, UL listed system for passing voice and alarm data reliably to the central station.
The TG-1 Express is the first dial capture cellular alarm communicator that is specifically designed and UL listed to leverage the power and backup battery that already exists in the panel. Now installation time is reduced because the installer no longer has to be concerned with the location or availability of the wall outlet.
Sometimes the best place to install a cellular communicator isn't at the panel. In these instances, Telguard offers a Single Line Interface Cable (SLIC) option. The SLIC allows an installer to run both the power and telephony to the TG-1 Express over a single CAT5 cable similar to how computer networks use Power over Ethernet to provide power to networking equipment.
Designed to allow consumers to remotely arm, disarm and receive system notifications at an affordable price, Telguard Interactive is now available for the iPhone, Android and BlackBerry platforms. The free app comes ready to activate with the TG-1 Express, making it compatible with virtually all residential alarm panels.
The combination of the TG-1 Express with Telguard Interactive allows you to easily increase RMR not only from new installations, but also from your existing customer base, without the expense of replacing their current alarm panels.
