IP Alarm Monitoring before AlarmCloud
IP alarm receivers are too complicated and expensive for most Alarm Monitoring Centers. They need a room with adequate power, cooling, servers, networks, bandwidth and a rock solid failover environment for redundancy. They require a team of IT experts to install, configure, and run them. When you multiply these headaches by the number of alarm panel manufacturers, it's easy to see why even the biggest companies with the best IT departments struggle to successfully implement IP Monitoring Solutions. The learning curve is simply too steep.
Zero Configuration required in your Monitoring Center
The AlarmCloud Platform allows you to maximize the investment in your existing infrastructure. We take signals over IP, put them back onto PSTN/POTS lines and into your facility via your trusty analog alarm receivers. They have never let you down, so why not continue to use them?
Your IT staff know your analog receivers inside out, so why waste valuable resources in training them to use IP receivers?
AlarmCloud allows you to use any make or model of security, fire or medical alarm system and transmit signals over the Internet in any alarm format. All of this and more, with Zero Configuration required within your monitoring facility.
A Better Way
Cloud Computing is a better way to run your Alarm Monitoring business. Instead of running IP receivers within your own facility, they run within the AlarmCloud. When you use any virtual receiver that runs in AlarmCloud, you just log in, customize it, and start using it. That's the power of AlarmCloud.
You can use a growing number of different manufacturers IP & Cellular communicators to send signals into AlarmCloud. Your company can be up and running almost instantly, which is unheard of with traditional IP solutions. Virtual Receivers within the Alarm Cloud cost less because you don't need to pay for all the people, products, and facilities to run them. And, they're more scalable, more secure, and more reliable than anything you may be able to setup within your own facility. Upgrades are taken care of for you, so you get security & performance enhancements plus new features automatically.
How you Save
The way you pay for Cloud solutions is different. Forget about buying expensive IP receivers, servers and software. When your receivers run in AlarmCloud, you don't buy anything. It's all rolled up into a predictable monthly subscription, so you only pay for what you actually use. AlarmCloud doesn't eat up your valuable IT resources, so your CFO will love it. This lets you focus on what you do best - monitor alarms.
Most IT departments within Central Stations are forced to spend a significant portion of their time on frustrating implementation, maintenance, and upgrade projects that usually don't add any significant value to the company's bottom line. Increasingly, Alarm Monitoring Centers are turning to Cloud Computing technology to minimize the time spent on lower value activities and allow their IT people to focus on more strategic activities that have a greater impact on the business.
The Bottom Line
AlarmCloud is a simple idea, but it can have a huge impact on your business.
AlarmCloud takes care of everything between an alarm panel and the alarm queue on your operator screens.
New technology should solve your business problems, not create more headaches. With AlarmCloud technology, you'll be free to focus on solving day to day problems instead of worrying about infrastructure requirements, maintenance, and upgrades.
