Latest monitoring centre sign-up confirms IRIS as Europe's most widespread IP alarm system
Chiron Security Communications' IRIS alarms-over-IP communications system has been further strengthened with confirmation that it is now being adopted by the Swiss alarm monitoring centre ADSI-FONTI.
ADSI-FONTI is based in Geneva and specialises in the monitoring of high-end installations such as banks, governmental institutions and embassies.
IRIS is a fully integrated IP alarm transmission and monitoring system that combines class-leading independent certification with a variety of operational benefits and advantages.
ADSI-FONTI has become the 233rd alarm monitoring centre to sign up to IRIS and to offer it to customers, following in the footsteps of other key Swiss monitoring service providers such as Protectas, TYCO-Swiss Alertis and RUVOR Alarm Management.
"With an estimated market coverage of 80% of potential users across Europe, IRIS is the one IP system fulfilling its potential to transform the way security alarms are monitored," says Willem Harthoorn, Chiron Security Communications' CCO. "The number of new connections is also escalating rapidly - including both commercial and domestic systems - making IRIS the market leader by a wide margin.
"Many alarm panel manufacturers are now offering IRIS technology embedded within their panels and the system is independently certified to EN50131 and 50136 - approved to Grade 4 ATS-6.
The IRIS diallers are also easy to install - no specialist IP knowledge is required - and fit a wide range of both new and existing 'legacy' alarm panels. IRIS also offers secure primary and back-up communication routes between a monitored site and alarm receiving center, while providing the ability to make tangible operating cost savings and significantly adding value to a company's existing IT network."
Chiron's IRIS system is Europe's best selling IP alarm transmission solution, served by 233 alarm monitoring centres and with more than 55,000 units in the field in 31 countries.
