New Orleans, LA – HAI (Home Automation, Inc.), manufacturer of integrated automation and security products, will be shipping a new Two-Way Cellular Communications Center (CCC) in the Second Quarter of 2008.
The two-way CCC connects with any burglar or fire alarm panel, including HAI controllers, to emulate the phone line signal if there is not one present. The Two-Way CCC dials out using a cellular network to communicate with a central monitoring station in any format for any panel. It also allows telephone calls to be made or received over the Cellular network using a landline telephone in the home. The central station can call the homeowner for verification in the event of an alarm.
This is an excellent option for security and/or automation installations where there is no land line or as added protection if the main phone is cut, said Thomas Pickral, HAI business development manager. The Two-Way CCC will ship with an included backup battery and antenna. It requires a GSM SIM card and cellular service.
