Optex and Site-Guard Combine Technologies for Portable, Wireless Security Solutions

Chino, California-October 17, 2006-Optex, manufacturer of high-end infrared sensor technology, has partnered with Remote Monitoring Technologies, Inc., makers of Site-Guard Portable Security Systems, to provide a wireless outdoor security solution that requires no phone lines for data transmission.

OPTEX/Site-Guard systems communicate via the Aeris.net MicroBurst network, which includes 95% of North America's cellular coverage area. The system's 24/7 server network receives communications from OPTEX/Site-Guard systems and sends text messages or emails to assigned contacts.

"This total solution partnership enables businesses to improve their loss prevention strategy in a cost-effective way by providing remote security at sites that otherwise require expensive labor-either for staffing or for running phone lines," said OPTEX Vice President of Sales and Marketing Gordon Lang.

"Site-Guard is pleased to partner with OPTEX and their sensor technology. The Site-Guard System coupled with OPTEX VX-402R Wireless Outdoor Motion Detector provides the user with the only complete, portable, wireless security system that operates in temperatures from -30 to +50C!" said Site-Guard Vice President of Business Development Dave Underwood.

With wireless communication and battery power, the OPTEX/Site-Guard system eliminates the need for telephone lines and power, making it an ideal solution for construction sites, vacant or remote properties, marinas and storage facilities. Because it is portable and wireless, the system takes only minutes to set up and arm.

The OPTEX VX-402R Wireless Outdoor Motion Detector comes with a weatherized back box for easy installation and includes 100lb. Pet Immunity, provides a 40ft. by 40ft. detection pattern and is completely weatherized for direct exposure to the elements.
