Telguard Gets Big Apple’s Approval for Fire Alarm Communicator

The Certificate of Approval #6316 gives New York City fire integrators the ability to specify the TG-7FS LTE in their system designs.

ATLANTA — Telguard announces its cellular fire alarm communicators have been issued a certificate of approval by New York City that will allow dealers to use the company’s TG-7FS LTE cellular fire communicator.

New York City has strict regulations on which types of fire communicators can be deployed within the city. Manufacturers must obtain a certificate of approval for fire systems dealers to be able to specify a brand like Telguard. The Certificate of Approval #6316 gives New York City fire integrators the ability to specify the TG-7FS LTE in their system designs.

The TG-7FS is a universal cellular communicator, meaning it works with virtually every fire alarm control panel. Using LTE cellular networks, the TG-7FS transmits alarm signals from the fire panel to the designated monitoring station. The unit meets UL 864 requirements and is compliant with NFPA 72 for primary or backup communications for commercial fire alarm systems.

By using the TG-7FS, accounts can go from two to one dedicated landline, which provides cost savings, according to the company. Telguard collaborated with Carlos Santiago, owner of New York Protection Controls, to obtain the certificate of approval.

“Central stations need to know about this certificate of approval so they can work with fire and life safety integrators and specify cellular communicators like Telguard in their system designs,” Santiago states in the announcement. “Dealers and integrators can choose from either AT&T or Verizon models — whichever carrier works best for them in their locale.”

“Telguard has been a go-to cellular communicator for authority having jurisdictions (AHJs) and fire marshals across the country for years,” says Telguard President George Brody. “We’re thrilled to have New York City’s Certificate of Approval.”

Telguard is a brand of Telular Corp. The company combines devices, communications, video, interactive services and alarm processing into turnkey systems for monitoring intrusion, fire systems and home automation without a traditional landline.

Telular Corp. is a business unit of AMETEK (NYSE: AME), is a global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annualized sales of approximately $5 billion.
