Fixed Cellular Just Got Easier
A fully-equipped Cellularm system consisting of cellular phone transceiver, antenna, and optional RACO Alarm Autodialer packaged in durable, weather-resistant housing.
The Cellularm System is designed to accommodate one of RACO's family of alarm autodialers featuring full microprocessor-based operation with convenient user programmability from the front panel or from any remote standard touch tone phone.
RACO's Cellularm System represents the next generation of fixed cellular equipment designed to provide voice and data communications over the cellular telephone network. The Cellularm System can be used for cellular telephone communications only, or it can be optionally equipped with a RACO autodialer to provide additional alarm monitoring and reporting capabilities.
Designed for temporary or permanent field use, the new system is ruggedly built and is housed in a heavy duty, weather-resistant enclosure. Fully equipped, the Cellularm System consists of a cellular phone transceiver, antenna, and one of RACO’s family of alarm autodialers packaged in a single, integrated unit.
For voice communications, Cellularm is provided with a standard RJ11C plug-in connector to accept a standard telephone set. The cellular phone transceivers used in the Cellularm system include Digital CDMA and GSM units, assuring reliable operation wherever cellular telephone service is available.
The system is only 17 1/2" high by 14 7/8" wide by 12 1/4" deep and weighs 49 lbs complete with transceiver and autodialer. It can be AC or DC powered, and backup battery power is standard for both transceiver and autodialer.
Advantages of Cellularm
Speed of Installation - The system is compact, easily transportable, and can be set up in less than an hour
Convenience - The Cellularm works with any regional cellular carrier. It does not require any special training or operating instructions. It's easily set up, and when the job is done, simply move it to your next job. You can also program and test Cellularm's telephone service and alarm functions in advance of your trip to the job site
Cost Effectiveness - Cellularm is cost-effective when regular telephone service is unavailable or too costly to install, maintain, or use. Cellularm also is a good choice when transmission is of poor quality or when a backup to the traditional telephone network is desired
Security - Security systems utilize phone lines. Cut the phone lines and you have defeated the security system. With Cellularm there are no phone lines to cut
Alarm Autodialing and Remote Monitoring
When optionally equipped with one of RACO's family of alarm autodialing systems, the Cellularm System permits alarm autodialing and remote monitoring over the cellular telephone network. If an alarm occurs, a RACO Autodialing System will automatically call a list of pre-programmed phone numbers, calling each number in turn until it gets an answer. When answered, the system reports the station identity and alarm condition by way of a digitally recorded voice message. Called stations can include standard phones in the office, plant, or home, as well as pagers, other cellular phones, and voicemail systems. And in addition to alarm reporting, the user can call in at any time from any standard touch tone phone get the present status of all monitored functions
Reducing Cellular Costs
Many cellular providers offer corporate airtime packages, low usage plans, and even unlimited, flatfee airtime usage which can minimize system costs. Thus, by custom tailoring your backup protection program to your needs, there are no "wasted" monthly expenditures for costly leased telephone lines or private network solutions. Further, cellular airtime can actually be less expensive in some toll calling situations when taking advantage of cellular super systems, wide area and unlimited usage calling plans, and area code versus cellular coverage differences. Actual savings will depend upon factors unique to your service area
While there are no guarantees that the cellular network will survive various natural and man made disasters, the cellular industry's reputation for survivability is growing almost daily. There are two cellular service providers in every license area. Typically, one or both are owned and operated by major telephone companies that have designed their cellular systems to survive hurricanes, earthquakes, and landline telephone company failures. Cellularm can protect your business from telephone network outages by providing a backup, alternative route for crucial voice and data communications circuits
