2G SUNSET IN USA IS JUST DAYS AWAY: ACT NOW, AND SAVE

On January 1st, AT&T will shut down its 2G network in the US* and other telecommunications carriers are likely to also end 2G coverage in the near future.

That means it’s time to say goodbye to 2G. US dealers should be taking action now to safeguard their customers’ connectivity.

Are you ready?

Once 2G coverage is gone, 2G-connected security systems will lose the ability to communicate alerts and other messages to central monitoring stations or owners.

Dealers who want to ensure continued connectivity for their customers must switch the 2G communicators in installed systems to 3G. In addition to preserving essential communications for their customers, taking action now will help dealers avoid a rush of frantic urgent service calls right after the New Year.

Upgrade to 3G – And save with special offers from DSC

To help dealers migrate any remaining 2G installations to 3G, DSC is offering a special 3G upgrade promotion for US dealers that includes immediate savings** and an easy upgrade process. Find out more by clicking here.

Ever Noticed How You Need the Newest Technologies to Service the Oldest Buildings?

The irony isn’t lost on us, either.

For many years, the 90-year-old 1898 Wycliff Condominium complex in Atlanta relied on inexpensive, standalone smoke detectors. But recently, residents of the three-floor brick complex became worried about the risk of fire, prompting the search for a new solution for the building’s common areas.

WyCliff Condo

That’s when it became clear that the brick exterior walls and concrete interior walls, and the old, unsuitable wiring in the walls and ceilings, would make installing a hardwired system extremely challenging and costly.

Protex Security Systems, a local systems integrator, recommended a modern system that would elegantly blend into the ornate decor with no need to open up walls: Tyco Security Product’s hybrid PowerSeries Neo intrusion system. The combined wired and wireless alarm system easily covers the large common areas, providing reliable detection and transmission of fire alarm signals without compromising the historic nature of the multi-unit residence.

Read the full case study about the special features of their choice, and why they were necessary to maintain the building’s Southern charms and keep the residents safe.
