LTE Network Support

Using a nationwide cellular network, the TG-1 Express transmits critical alarm information to central stations. As a safeguard, it falls back to 3G/4G if an LTE network is not available for extended network coverage.


The TG-1 Express is designed to use the power and backup battery that already exists in the alarm panel, making installation a breeze. If you face a situation where the panel isn’t the best place to install, Telguard offers a Single Line Interface Cable (SLIC) option to run both the power and telephony to the TG-1 Express over a single CAT5 cable.

Your Perfect Takeover Toolkit

The TG-1 Express supports HomeControl Flex, which adds essential interactive services to modern and legacy alarm panels without requiring expensive panel upgrades. Supporting a growing list of integrations, security dealers can upgrade users to home automation with Telguard’s FlexHub™ Z-Wave Controller, voice control with Amazon Alexa and real-time video with Arlo HD cameras.
