AES-Intelli-Net is a Dedicated Alarm Communication Service
In Chicago, EMERgency24 alarm dealers can offer home and business owners the AES-Intelli-Net radio-frequency mesh network as a solution to alarm-signal interruption resulting from customers switching from traditional phone technology to Voice over IP (VoIP) phone service.
As home and business owners drop their landlines for VoIP, alarm systems become compromised. In fact, the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA) published a report stating that, the alarm industry has found and reported a wide variety of problems with the transmission of alarm signal formats over VoIP.
Other VoIP Concerns Include:
- Reliability: alarm communication over multiple paths via the mesh network
- Speed: alarms are acknowledged by EMERgency24 within seconds
- Security: no phone lines means no line cutting due to criminals, storms or construction
- Reliability: provides 24/7 alarm communications
Prevent False Alarms
In most communities, when a burglar alarm is activated, emergency responders are dispatched to the home to determine the cause of the signal and check on the well-being of residents.
However, some cities are experimenting with a practice called Verified Response. That means monitoring companies or alarm-system owners must confirm there is an actual intrusion that requires police response. This policy is also referred to as "Non-Response."
As an alternative to this dangerous policy, the security industry developed a widely accepted procedure called Enhanced Call Verification (ECV), which helps reduce false dispatches while still protecting tax-paying citizens. To learn more about ECV, click here.
