Original Press Release:

NextAlarm Ships New Lower-Cost Alarm Broadband Adapter

OJAI, Calif. -- NextAlarm® Monitoring Services, Inc. announced today that a new version of its Alarm Broadband Adapter (ABN3A) is being introduced with immediate availability. The new adapter is based on improved, more compact hardware that is easier to configure.

The adapter is also significantly less expensive to both dealers and end users, while maintaining compatibility with all features of NextAlarm's alarm monitoring service.

When connected to the ABN3A, any alarm system that supports the Contact ID reporting format can send alarm signals over broadband Internet, rather than over standard phone lines.

Because alarm systems cannot reliably send signals over digital phone lines or Voice over IP services, alarm owners who use these phone services have in the past needed to maintain a standard non-digital phone line dedicated to their alarm system, or install an expensive cellular or radio based system. The cellular dialers carry a large hardware price especially compared with the new ABN3A and high monthly cost for airtime while limiting the number of signals. An Alarm Broadband Adapter allows most existing phone line based systems to communicate again at a much lower price with no signal limitations, while adding features. Alarms are sent from the system into NextAlarm's cloud-based signal processing platform. The ABN3A and other NextAlarm products are available from a number of resellers and dealers.

NextAlarm Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Tom Reed commented on the new adapter, "This is a natural evolution of our best-selling product. As we get more adapters out there, we're able to move to hardware that's smaller and cheaper, while still maintaining the same quality our customers expect from NextAlarm. Our resellers should find this price reduction especially helpful as they bring the ABN3A to their own markets. When paired with our recently launched WiFi Bridge, the wireless kit is only slightly more expensive for dealers than our previous wired only product."
