Professional Jewel Thieves caught Red-handed
Peabody, MA – December 2008 – AES Corporation received confirmation today that their AES-IntelliNet MultiNet long-range mesh alarm communications system foiled a jewel heist attempt in Hemet California. The local police department was on the scene in 10 minutes thanks to the speed of AES-IntelliNet radio alarm communications system and 2 men were taken into custody when they were caught trying to collect the jewelry and exit the store. A report by Riverside County local news brief confirms that both men are in custody at Riverside County jail.
According to the local police department, the two men cut through the wall of a vacant business next to Dan’s Jewelry store and immediately destroyed the burglar alarm control panel. In fact Morgan Hertel of The Command Center said, “the control panel was taken out so fast that the digital dialer signal never made it through. Evidently the thieves knew exactly where to come through the wall at the alarm panel site but they were not expecting to encounter the speed of AES-IntelliNet. If this site did not have the protection of AES-IntelliNet, we would never have received the alarm signal and it would have gone down very differently. The subscriber would have suffered a loss and the burglars would not have been apprehended.”
The AES-IntelliNet’s MultiNet alarm communications system is a self healing, long-range wireless mesh radio communication network and works in conjunction with the Internet to provide customers the ability to monitor alarms in multiple regions from one location, without recurring monthly communications costs or infrastructure fees typically associated with remote monitoring. The AES-MultiNet mesh network also offers a more reliable, faster means of communicating alarm signals to central monitoring stations without relying on telephone lines or cellular services that are vulnerable to line cuts, weather conditions, radio jamming, and recurring monthly costs.
Tom Kenty, General Manager at AES Corporation said, “This is another example of the proven superior reliability of AES-IntelliNet. When we claim our mesh alarm communications system is 10 times faster than telephone or cellular technology, we continue to back that claim up with examples like this.”
