M2M company Telit is to start supplying modules to Latin American security specialist Viaweb.
In a statement, the companies said the modules would be integrated into Viaweb’s (Sao Paolo, Brazil) monitored alarm system, allowing “alarm event data” to be sent wirelessly.
The system has been set up so that alarms can be transmitted via the internet and cellular communications and controlled remotely by laptops, smartphones and tablets.
Viaweb says the technology can be applied to new and existing alarm systems and is suitable for small organizations as well as much larger businesses.
The system is said to use encryption for all data communications to further improve security.
“Alarm system technology has evolved a lot over the years,” said Eliane Wollman Wedderhoff, a Viaweb director. “Robbers and saboteurs easily disable landline technology.
The GPRS communication means a wireless, streamlined, constant and in real-time data transmission.”
Telit (London, UK) says the security segment is one of the most important in the large Latin American market.
“The VIAWEB system … provides the means to control the alarm system from connected devices such as mobile phones and tablets and points to the future of this market,” said Ricardo Buranello, Telit’s Latin American director.
