Mobile app and three modes of communication

February 2017 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Products & Solutions

The addition of the Permaconn range of wireless alarm communication products to Elvey’s portfolio underlines the company’s commitment to continually servicing market needs. Gary Lowe, CEO of Elvey, says that Permaconn’s 17-year track record in developed markets, coupled with the benefits that Permaconn’s range offers the market, makes this a welcome addition to Elvey’s suite brands and solutions.

Permaconn offers a clear set of differentiating factors from the existing GPRS transmitters available in South Africa. Not only does each transmitter come with a standard Ethernet connection, but one can also set various polling rates, based on a site’s security requirements. The Permaconn transmitters can operate on GPRS, 3G and IP networks. The system incorporates a primary IP link and will switch over to GPRS when required.

“Furthermore, it allows remote up and downloading capabilities on all of Elvey’s control panel options. Add to this the Pocket Secure mobile app that allows you to arm or disarm your alarm system, control doors, gates and lights, and it is clear why Permaconn complements Elvey’s high-end offerings,” says Elvey sales director, Ingo Mutinelli.

Mutinelli explains that Commercial ICT, the exclusive distributors of the Permaconn product range, concluded a deal with Elvey to simultaneously distribute the Permaconn brand. This arrangement leverages the technical skills, experience and expertise of both companies and increases the level of support available to customers.

This makes it an attractive option. Added to the obvious reliability of communication is the redundancy in the control room provided by the disaster recovery module (DRC). In essence, during evacuation situations in control room centres, a dongle plugged into a secondary station in a disaster recovery centre can be used to restore signals in real time. In addition, two data centres – one at MTN and one in Australia – provide redundancy should one network go offline.

The Permaconn products are compatible with many alarm manufacturer brands and have full RISCO congruity for complete video integration, making them cost-effective choices. Because all signals are encrypted via AES128, users have the peace of mind that they cannot be hacked. The units have a low current consumption, so in the event of a power failure, they will remain on line for longer.
