‘FAST’ Feature Works in Real-Time
OJAI, Calif. — NextAlarm.com announces the Fully Automated Sensor Telemetry (FAST) feature to its alarm monitoring services. FAST lets the NextAlarm Abbra 2 Professional Series security system send real-time status updates whenever an alarm sensor is engaged.
As installers know, alarm systems typically only send signals when an alarm is triggered, when the system is armed or disarmed, or when maintenance is required such as a low battery. FAST continually provides updates on the status of every sensor on the system (e.g., when a door or window is opened or closed). FAST can be accessed by bringing up the status screen on NextAlarm’s website where it displays a list of all the sensors on the security system. It updates the account automatically in real-time, showing when a sensor is opened or closed. For example, if a user is at work, he or she can check if a window was left open at home by simply checking his/her account online.
FAST runs over NextAlarm’s ABN (Alarm Broadband Network), a low-cost broadband solution for security system monitoring.
