The change you’ve been expecting is here now.
EBS proudly presents:
It’s time for a change. It’s time for a breakthrough:
EBS changes the name of its devices group from Smart Transmitters to Smart Communicators.
Most alarm systems work in line with the following two scenarios:
- Light and sound warnings of a security breach,
- Same as above, plus a security company field patrol alarm check.
Both described actions share a similar drawback – lack of downlink interaction. Neither the end-user nor a security company can remotely inspect an alarm system if it doesn’t have such a function. Still, false alarms or unintended triggers happen – e.g., children returning from school.
But what if there’s a simple solution? One that doesn’t require getting a new alarm system – instead, it’s just a small add-on investment that will upgrade the device with a duplex link? We are offering this now to our customers.
Transmitters were present in the EBS product portfolio for years.
But it’s time for a breakthrough!
The basic function of transmitters was to send the status update of monitored devices. Digital inputs, events, autotest results, and stuff like supply voltage were detected. However, it quickly becomes evident that downlink is also a desired feature. Along with the development of GSM infrastructure, new perspectives appear. And duplex transmitters are becoming more and more popular. Since then, users could not only check the monitored device status, but remote control also enabled a preliminary service diagnosis. This speeds up reaction time, leading to cost reduction.
That extended features set lets EBS apply the adjective “SMART” because more than just a remote reading can be made.
EBS now offers a whole ecosystem build around Smart Communicators. These include hardware devices that differ in feature set and software, allowing configuration and remote access to end-users or security companies.
The simplest yet and feature-rich Smart Communicator called BASIC T uses available WiFi infrastructure to set up a datalink. It works with DTMF signals, supports OTA firmware upgrades, and can be remotely controlled with a smartphone app. It has four physical EOL inputs and single OC output.
In order to set up the Communicator, “EBS Config 2.0” software for PC and smartphone can be used. There are two software options available for later control: “EBS Security” app for end-user or “OSM.Server” middleware application for security companies.
More sophisticated devices in the portfolio add GSM link usage – giving more independence to the whole system in case of WiFi failure – e.g., blackout. Home routers don’t usually feature UPS – so choosing the right communicator provides a better security level.
Such communicators support unrestricted SMS to any predefined numbers. They also accept SMS containing config commands.
Another option is the LX2NB Communicator, which features a radio link supporting wireless remote key fobs working at 433.92MHz. KeeLoq devices are supported.
Every Smart Communicator controls supply voltage, backup battery charging, and monitoring, allowing this information to be remotely read.
Products offering contain devices equipped with Ethernet and GSM interfaces. This levels up transmission stability thanks to doubled data transmission feature.
All data packets are encrypted – which significantly improves system safety.
Users are free to choose from a comprehensive product portfolio that enables tailoring the system to individual requirements.
Thanks to software available, which can also be customized upon request, EBS offers the most comprehensive and versatile product portfolio available to date.
