Important approval achieved by Chubb Fire and Security for its eConnect fire and security alarm product
Chubb Fire & Security has had three product variants undergo and pass the rigorous testing programme required to achieve LPS 1277 Issue 3.0. These include the eConnect IP/GPRS G4e and eConnect GPRS/PSTN G3e offering a selection of dual path solutions for use with intruder alarm and hold-up installations and also the eConnect IP/GPRS G4eF offering a dual path solution for use with fire alarm installations.
The Chubb eConnect connects to the notification outputs of an intruder alarm or a fire alarm control panel and in the event of an alarm transmits messages to the Chubb alarm receiving centres. The alarm receiving centres are manned 24 hours-a-day enabling the key holder to be contacted or the appropriate response (eg Police or Fire Service) dispatched. The dual path intruder solutions ensure that even in the event of a malicious attack on one or both of the communication paths to the alarm receiving centre, a confirmed alarm can continue to be signalled at the ARC, allowing the police to be called.
