Universal communicator

May 2016 Products, Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Tyco Security Products has launched the DSC GS4005/3G4005 Universal Cellular Communicator that is designed to strengthen and enhance the functionality of existing residential and commercial alarm systems by providing a cost-effective solution for migrating to cellular communications.

The DSC Universal Communicator enables the upgrade of almost any existing PSTN alarm panel to GSM/3G cellular connectivity. Adding cellular communications enables more robust system security by eliminating the risk of an intruder disabling communication by cutting the phone wire and provides cost savings and added convenience for customers who want to switch from landlines in favour of mobile phones.

Home and business customers can also benefit from additional functionality enabled by the DSC Universal Communicator that makes existing systems smarter with mobile control and advanced capabilities. Users can remotely arm/disarm their system using a mobile device and receive detailed notifications on alarms through voice and SMS notifications and commands. Basic smart home features, such as the control of smart light switches, are also enabled with the addition of the DSC Universal Communicator.

For budget conscious customers looking to upgrade their system without the expense of a new alarm system, the DSC Universal Communicator extends the life of the alarm panel by enabling customers without landlines to continue to use their existing PSTN-only panels. Customers can also realise potential savings by switching to lower-cost cellular communication in areas where landline costs are higher.
