Greetings Group,

We're looking for a universal IP communicator that doesn't require a  
subscription to another service.

(ie.. AlarmNet)



If so can it handle a CID data stream?

Tks,

RTS

These Arrowhead units are popular in NZ, although we really dont use them m
uch, as its dependant on the clients network always being 'UP'.  Im sure th
ey will ship them overseas for you.  Any Contact ID panel will generally wo
rk with it.  Requires a CSV IP receiver (software), but you can download th
at for free anyway..  The software ttalks to any standard Automation softwa
re.

Re: universal IP communicator
At one point Arizona Security Control had their own.  It would work with a  
static internal IP or a dynamic IP.  Minimal programming.  Just wire it up  
and plug it in to the LAN.

Sadly I think they quit making it and started telling everybody to use the  
much more expensive DSC IP communicator.

I found it was a huge pain to use IP communicators.  To many other people  
who could screw things up.  IT guys who think they are smarter than  
everybody else, or worse.  IT guys who aren't that smart so instead of  
working with other vendors they are hyper protective of their network to the  
point of hurting their own customers or employer.  Obviously network  
traffic, and internet traffic are an issue as is the ISP itself.  And then  
there sis the office hack who thinks he's an IT pro.  I just went over to  
cellular and stopped offering IP communication at all.  Cellular proved to  
be more reliable long term for me, and I had more control over everything.  
If I didn't get a customer who insisted on cheap over good it didn't bother  
me.

Re: Ooma
I have a customer that has the Ooma phone system in his home. Initially he  
had some problems and called me about how to wire line seizure. He didn't w
ant me to do a service call because he's real cheap.  I didn't hear back fr
om him so  1) he was able to fix it. 2) He thinks he fixed it and sometimes
 the call gets through and sometimes it doesn't because of the inconsistenc
y of VoIP. 3. H thinks he fixed it but didn't.  

Signals are still getting through but he has radio backup ??
?. so ?? ?

Re: universal IP communicator


We are using the Cellular units from Napco widely..

But we do have a few "really" cheap customers that want to use the IP..


about...

like you said IP phone service can varies widely from vendor to vendor..

and time of day to time of week...

That's one of the reasons I was questioning the Ooma unit.

(Their tech seems to think their compression software is the best on the  
current market..)
