LAS VEGAS, April 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ISC West, Booth #16109 -- Telular Corporation (Nasdaq:WRLS), a leader in alarm and event monitoring solutions and services, announced today that home security monitoring provider Monitronics is launching Telguard Interactive to their national dealer base as part of its enhanced service strategy beginning in May 2011.
Available for the iPhone, Android and BlackBerry platforms, Telguard Interactive allows consumers to remotely arm, disarm, and receive system notifications conveniently through their smartphones. The mobile app comes ready to activate with Telguard's residential cellular communicator product line, which includes the TG-1 Express, the TG-1B, and the TG-4 in primary mode, making it compatible with virtually all residential alarm panels.
"We are excited to offer this service, as it is exactly what consumers are looking for: access to cutting-edge technology at an affordable price for today's mobile lifestyle," said Bruce Mungiguerra, vice president, sales and dealer development for Monitronics. "Our dealers can soon offer a complementary service that enhances the security power and functionality of each system when used in tandem with Telguard's cellular communicators."
Telguard Interactive allows Monitronics to easily retrofit and upgrade, without the expense of replacing existing alarm panels. With minimal programming required, Telguard Interactive leverages the basic features built into almost all security panels – the key-switch zone, output triggers, and opening and closing reports – for a quick and easy installation and registration.
"We are excited to work with Monitronics as they look to keep their dealers ahead of the technology curve," said Shawn Welsh, vice president of marketing and business development for Telular. "We share their vision in supporting dealers across the U.S. with affordable services for consumers cutting the cord and relying on mobile for all forms of communication and security."
