When did Safeguard adopt AES-IntelliNet as a solution: 2000
Why Safeguard adopted AES-IntelliNet: AES–IntelliNet gave us full control of our own network. We had bad experiences with other technologies where we were at the mercy of other third-party vendors for repairs, interrupted service and more.
AES advantages you see: The mesh technology offers a very strong signal where other technologies may not work. Each panel becomes a repeater versus the signal going from the premise to a central station. Between the incredible signal and the network control, the reliability has been a great benefit for Safeguard.
What customers like most about AES-IntelliNet: They no longer experience the expense and line failures of a telephone system.
After 12 years of distributing AES-IntelliNet, what makes you happiest about that decision today: The fact that I am not burdened with replacing these units because of obsolete product or GSM sunset issues.
What would you do if AES-IntelliNet was taken away from you: I wouldn’t go back to another technology, that’s for sure. I’d stick with radio.
What’s at the top of your security “bucket list”: AES offering smartphone integration.
