Alarmbridge – works across devices & receiving platforms
Let’s say you are an Alarm Receiving Centre looking to modernize architecture, expand protocol support and enable interworking between different supplier technologies. Or a company building products that need to integrate with existing deployed alarm devices and alarm receiving platforms. Where would you start?
With the current protocol fragmentation in the alarm industry and the many legacy solutions depending on various analogue or digital protocols for the alarm communication, it’s not easy. Alarmbridge helps overcome these difficulties by simplifying integrations between alarm equipment and receiving platforms.
Simply put, Alarmbridge receives alarm calls based on current protocols or APIs and sends them to a receiving platform in a language it understands. It doesn’t matter if the device uses an old legacy analogue protocol or a modern IP based protocol to transmit alarms – Alarmbridge works across devices and receiving platforms.
Benefits of Alarmbridge
Alarmbridge is feature-rich and has a number of benefits for both Alarm Receiving Centres and Alarm Equipment Suppliers.
You can keep your existing deployed devices and replace them in your own pace
Alarmbridge supports a number of legacy protocols and device manufacturers which ensures that installed base of analogue alarm units continues to operate even after the migration to a digital Alarm Receiving Centre.
Being able to modernize existing solutions step-by-step and gradually replace installed base of devices, will be key to a smooth migration to modern IP based alarm services with no or little service disruption.
You can make your Alarm Receiving Platform compliant with modern IP based alarm protocols
Alarmbridge makes it easy to integrate alarm equipment that uses standardized IP based protocols to transmit alarms – making Alarm Receiving Centres compliant with current standards and enabling interworking between supplier technologies.
Alarmbridge receives the alarm event from the alarm equipment, converts it into a unified API and sends it as a REST callback to the receiving platform.
You can connect new devices to your solution to improve efficiency and safety
Connect smart sensors, wearables, cameras and other kind of digital devices to monitor activity and quickly identify changes. Trigger alarms upon activity from fall and bed sensors, let an audio assistant send alerts upon unexpected sounds, or combine smart sensors and use AI to get insights about user behavior.
Alarmbridge receives the alarms as API events, converts them to a specified output protocol such as SCAIP, and delivers them to a receiving platform.
You can enrich the user experience by integrating voice and video services
Modern alarm systems drive demand for sophisticated real-time communications. With iotcomms.io you can develop your solution by adding VoIP and video-based communications with alarm endpoints.
Calls can be set up between Alarm Receiving Centres, care devices, video cameras etc in a multitude of use cases, based on VoiP and WebRTC technologies.
