Doing It Yourself
ipDatatel, the creator and manufacturer of the Broadband Alarm Transceiver offered here, recently received the the prestigious "Best In Residental and Monitoring Solutions" Award at the SIA West show in Las Vegas in April.
First and foremost on the list is situational awareness - knowing what's going on when it's going on. Not only will the Aegis BAT notify you of an alarm before the central station contacts you, you'll also get the same quick response when the alarm system is disarmed and armed.
Here are some realistic examples:
- Let’s say you own a couple of stores. They both open at 10:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. Now, it’s 9:30 pm and you’re relaxing with you family watching TV. A commercial comes on and you realize that you didn’t receive a text from one of your stores that it was armed. After double checking your messages, you verify that a text from that store closing was never received. You then open the BAT App on your phone, and arm the store’s alarm system with your phone.
- Same scenario (store owner/9:30 pm), but this time you receive phone call from one of your employees telling you that the evening manager had to leave on a personal emergency. The manager left the key to lock up, but didn’t provide a code to arm the alarm system. You ask the employee what code they would like, and using your BAT App, you remotely program the user code into the alarm panel.
- This time it’s a bit later and you’re ready to go to bed when your phone sounds with a text message stating that there is an alarm from zone 2, front motion detector. Since you recently had Aegis Technology install a new camera surveillance system, you open an App on your phone to view your cameras. Fortunately, you don’t see anything amiss. However, you do see the culprit – your employees hung the piñatas as they were supposed to, but too close to the air vent.
- While putting together the upcoming week’s schedule, you start wondering if your managers are opening and closing the stores on time. On your personal BAT webpage, you have access to your alarm system’s history.
As you can see, adding the Aegis BAT to your alarm panel adds several useful tools for a business owner/manager.
