General Manager of AES-IntelliNet Tom Kenty stated that "we are excited about the opportunity as we are now able to provide our business partners serving New York City and all 5 burroughs with AES-IntelliNet‘s long-range wireless MultiNet alarm communications solution. AES-IntelliNet business partners will now be able to offer their customers and families the fastest most reliable fire alarm communications system on the market and increase their own RMR at the same time."
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 AESMultiNet 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.
