AES Corporation Unveils Innovative IntelliNet 2.0

Newer, Smarter Alarm Communications Platform Provides Enhanced Technology with Advanced Security Protection

March 6, 2017 (Peabody, Massachusetts) – AES Corporation, the leading manufacturer of long-range wireless private mesh radio alarm communication products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of IntelliNet 2.0 bringing alarm dealers and contract central stations the next generation of AES global alarm communication solutions.

The powerful IntelliNet 2.0 platform leverages state-of-the-art technology, applies cutting-edge advanced security protection, enables future ready capabilities, provides simplified unit programming, and is engineered for backward compatibility with legacy systems.  The forward compatible design allows for feature add-ons, engineered to adapt seamlessly with future software upgrades as technology advances.

“AES has been delivering industry-leading alarm monitoring solutions protecting people and property for decades, we’re proud of our proven track record providing the most reliable and fastest mesh radio technology available on the market,” said Bill Kieckhafer, President & COO, AES Corporation.  “With the IntelliNet 2.0 platform providing faster installation time and improving post-install serviceability, we’re taking our capabilities to an even higher level.  We strive to give customers the highest quality products and world class support.”

IntelliNet 2.0 builds upon the solid foundation of the highly successful existing AES-IntelliNet system, adding a number of valuable enhancements including:

  • A password protected Dealer Code that adds another layer of security to units, protects critical assets against rogue activity and prevents unauthorized access
  • Flexible power options and 24 hour backup battery, offers versatility with ability to power from the Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) or subscriber backup battery standby power, and reduces installation time significantly without requiring an electrician onsite
  • An intuitive Graphic User Interface (GUI) makes it easy to program AES subscriber units via smartphone, laptop, tablet, or USB without the need for special cables or having to use a handheld programmer
  • AES products are tested to the highest industry certification standards, meeting NFPA compliance requirements and earning UL listings 

IntelliNet 2.0 employs the latest in computing technology, adopts the most current communication methods available, and was developed with feedback from our global dealer network.  The hardened security system with end-to-end encryption was designed as a countermeasure to mitigate potential vulnerabilities.  This measure ensures that data is transmitted without eavesdropping, cloning, data tampering, and message forging.  Providing a unique license key safeguards and protects confidential information.

“The new backlit LCD gives technician information onsite, verifying NetCon and routes before install, which is great for units in hidden places like a storage closet.  The built-in annunciator is a big plus and the Menu/Silence button shows condition, saves us a call and we’re no longer blind to status of radio which reduces time to find mounting location, said Barry Westcott, Co-Owner, Instant Alarm.  “I like the versatility of flexible power options, great for primary power from the panel if no transformer or outlet is nearby but also having the backup battery for standby.  Auto detection of new hardware is excellent.”
