Monitoring over the Internet


With the rollout of the NBN by the Goverenment Statewide Monitoring along with the assitence of Suretek and ADSW have receiver modules built into ADSW which allows us to receive all types of IP Monitoring from units manufactured for the Australian market.

We can recevie all current reporting formats with the exception of IR Fast and Tecom using out state of the art system. 


Security alarms are sometimes installed in a premises and are often monitored ‘back to base’ by an alarm company. The security system is commonly connected to a copper telephone line in the premises. When a monitored alarm is activated, the alarm dials ‘back to base’ to inform the alarm company that the alarm has been triggered. Many medical alarms operate in a similar way and are usually triggered by an end user pressing an emergency button. When the alarm is activated, a call is placed to a monitoring centre and a response is provided to the end user.


Monitored security and medical alarms both use telephone tones (also known as DTMF tones) to communicate with the central monitoring centre and rely on a high quality telephone service being available. Industry peak bodies estimate that there are approximately 1.5 million back to base security alarms and approximately 300,000 medical alarms in operation Yes, these services can work on the NBN and a number of services have already been successfully deployed. However, NBN Co provides a wholesale product which is just one part of an end to end retail telephone service. Many of the retail product features and applications supported depend on Service Providers’ product packaging and network configuration and it is important to understand how these affect the operation of back to base security and medical alarms.
