Stanley Security’s Sonitrol Impact Activated Audio Alarm Verification Control Panels Now Interface With Inovonics’ Wireless EchoStream Technology
LOUISVILLE, Colo., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Inovonics (http://www.inovonics.com), the industry leader in high-performance wireless sensor networks for commercial and life safety applications, today announced its EchoStream EN4200 receiver now interfaces with the Sonitrol IP-Enabled iBase and FlexiBase control panels by Stanley Security. Stanley Security’s audio alarm verification panel is unique for many intrusion installations because it offers a more efficient install, increased flexibility, and can be less expensive than video verification solutions.
“As a leading security systems integrator we value partners like Inovonics, whose technology not only enhances the intrusion detection solutions we offer, but also ensures customers can rely on us when a break-in occurs,” said Patrick Lusaka, Global Director of Product Management at Stanley Convergent Security Solutions. “By interfacing with EchoStream technology, we are confident our Sonitrol IP-enabled iBase and FlexiBase control panels will achieve optimal wireless communication. Additionally, our customers will save costs by using audio alarms versus the costs of installing video cameras for verification.”
The Sonitrol control panels provide audio verification technology, which is often times more cost effective and just as reliable as many video solutions. When an alarm is triggered, monitoring professionals listen-in to determine whether they are dealing with a break-in or false alarm. If a break-in is determined, authorities are notified and provided with real-time information about the crime in progress. This technology offers customers the highest apprehension rate and lowest false alarm rate in the industry. Additional benefits of the Sonitrol IP-enabled iBase and FlexiBase control panels include better protection, early detection, identification of intruders who enter the building unconventionally and providing vital information to responding law enforcement.
The EchoStream EN4200 receiver allows Inovonics intrusion products to seamlessly communicate with the Sonitrol IP-enabled iBase and FlexiBase control panels. It features a full range of security end-points for burglary, intrusion monitoring and duress situations. Users also benefit from a hand-held survey kit to measure radio signal strength for easy, quick and accurate installations. EchoStream is the third generation radio platform from Inovonics and is the result of decades of experience in developing wireless security applications for commercial customers. It delivers industry-leading reliability, long range and battery life that meet the security industry’s needs today and well into the future because of its flexibility and network capabilities.
“Stanley Security is a premier security integrator and it was a great opportunity to interface our EchoStream technology with their Sonitrol IP-enabled iBase and FlexiBase control panels,” explained Mark Jarman, president of Inovonics. “The combined solution offers a steadfast intrusion detection system and demonstrates our efforts to provide the leading wireless solutions for a wide range commercial and industrial security applications.”
