Telguard Announces Certification of New TG-1 Express CDMA Universal Communicator on the Verizon Wireless Network

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (ESX Booth #211) -- Telguard, a leader in wireless alarm communications, interactive and home automation services, today announced the availability of the TG-1 Express CDMA cellular alarm communicator on the Verizon Wireless network. The TG-1 Express CDMA is an ideal primary residential solution for areas where cellular coverage may be challenging. Based on the same proven, flexible features and functionality of the TG-1 Express for 3G/4G networks, the CDMA version helps reduce cost and installation time in every cell-only, no-landline, and VoIP home.

The TG-1 Express CDMA supports virtually all alarm formats using dial capture for universal panel compatibility. A universally compatible communicator gives installers the freedom to proceed with a quick installation regardless of the existing panel encountered at a site. This capability is critical in the case of takeovers and essential to the growth of a security dealer's business. The flagship communicator also supports the RMR-boosting Telguard Interactive remote control app. Telguard Interactive allows homeowners to remotely arm and disarm their system, receive notifications of any alarm status change, view arming and alerting history, and securely share access to their system.

"We have always supported our dealers with a robust portfolio of products and services to meet the growing needs of their customer base. With the 2G (GSM) Sunset closer than ever, we wanted to offer a CDMA alternative of our flagship product, giving dealers options when replacing soon-to-be obsolete GSM products," said Shawn Welsh, VP of Marketing and Business Development, Telular. "Now, we are excited to offer the same feature-rich residential communicator in both HSPA and CDMA versions, for the same price."

Small enough to fit in an installer's back pocket, the UL listed TG-1 Express CDMA uses the power and backup battery of the security panel eliminating the need for an available wall outlet. The unit also features a unique way to connect to the panel for instances when the communicator needs to be installed remotely. The Single Line Interface Cable (SLIC) allows the power and telephony connection to be sent over a single CAT5 cable, similar to how computer networks use Power over Ethernet (PoE). With the SLIC option installers can now remotely mount the TG-1 Express CDMA without being limited by the availability of power or the expense of an RF cable run.

"Telguard's TG-1 Express for 3G/4G networks has been a go to universal communicator in our residential portfolio because of its ideal price point, quality and overall reliability," said Mike Putman, Director of Operations, Ackerman Security. "Recently, we've had the opportunity to install the new TG-1 Express CDMA in both areas where we could never get coverage in the past, as well as in major metropolitan areas. The TG-1 Express CDMA has proven itself to work as flawlessly as its 3G/4G counterpart in every scenario."

Like all Telguard cellular alarm communicators, the TG-1 Express CDMA is eligible for Telguard's Upgrade Incentive Program. Every time a GSM unit is upgraded with the TG-1 Express CDMA, a dealer can receive up to $25. In addition, TG-1 Express CDMA activations will apply to the volume price discounts offered to Telguard Advantage Program (TAP) dealers. The TG-1 Express CDMA, model number TG-1VX, is available through security distributors.

The Telguard TG-1 Express CDMA, and all Telguard products and services, will be on display at ESX 2014, June 25-26 at Music City Center, Nashville, TN in Telguard's booth #211.
