The T-Link TL260 offers reliable back-up or primary alarm signal communication with full redundancy
Integrated Communication Solution
DSC is pleased to announce the TL260 Internet/Intranet Communicator which brings low cost but high value to alarm signal delivery. DSC recognizes that the use of traditional phone lines is increasingly becoming less common in many
homes and businesses. As more people opt for VoIP (Voice over IP) or cell phone usage, it is essential to provide alternate methods of alarm communication. DSC’s TL260 Internet/Intranet Communicator conveniently utilizes the existing
Internet connection to ensure high speed and reliable alarm communications. When connected to a DSC Power SeriesPC1864/1832/1616 control panel, customers have the option to combine alarm reporting paths through Public Switched
Telephone Network (PSTN) or Internet/Intranet stream. The addition of Internet/Intranet as back-up or primary provides added security and has the extra benefit of providing the opportunity for increased recurring monthly revenue (RMR)
Reduces Need for Dedicated Phone Lines
The TL260 conveniently utilizes the existing Internet/Intranet connection and eliminates the need for dedicated phone lines and reduces the chance of phone line interruption.
Control Panel Remote Programming & Management Support Saves Time and Money
Through the Internet/Intranet connection, the TL260 offers full data reporting and remote management for installers, saving time and reducing costs. With the use of DSC’s DLS IV downloading software, installers can easily remotely program
and configure the control panel, change user information, retrieve historical records, generate status reports and maintenance details from a PC via the Internet/Intranet.
Fully Redundant Alarm Communication at the Monitoring Station
When the TL260 is connected to the PC1864/1832/1616 control panel, the alarm signal can be sent to either the primary receiver or to both the primary and backup receivers at the central monitoring station, providing a fully redundant
solution. This provides not only peace of mind for the customer, but extra revenue stream options for the dealer.
Encryption & Supervision Services Provide High Security & Increased RMR
With 128-bit AES encryption of the alarm signal on the IP stream, central stations, installers and customers can be assured that alarm communication is completed secure. And with programmable (by seconds) supervision heartbeats, the
communicator’s availability is fully monitored. Back-up alarm communication over the Internet/Intranet stream provides a supervised link to the premises and also increases revenue opportunities for dealers.
Shorter Installation Times with PC-Link
The TL260 connects to the PC-Link connector on the DSC control panel and is easily mounted within the same cabinet, providing the Internet/Intranet connection that sends predefined SIA format codes to a central monitoring station.
For the retrofit installation, simply install this communicator to an already existing control panel and the service is instantly upgraded to a dual-path alarm communicator.
