I did not know this....anything working through the cell system is not the answer.....too many instances of cell service going down in less than major circumstances & more than once on rumors like major storms or earthquakes that never affected our area.....totally unreliable....go back to the hard wired telegraph system the dice has been rolled for way too long.HCO said:The ERS and solar boxes work through the Verizon cell system.
I must agree with "mack" here. I was there listening to this Deputy Superintendent talk to us on why the fire alarm boxes WILL REMAIN in service in Boston (actually the oldest fire alarm system in the country). I just wish I had taken notes as he was talking. He mentioned about how important and reliable these fire alarm boxes have been. Not only for getting firefighters and apparatus to the scene of a fire, but even in cases of car accidents, a civilian having a medical condition, even a child having a strange car follow him/her.mack said:A few of us visited Boston Fire Alarm recently. The Deputy Superintendent told us that the BFD fire alarm boxes work well and are not expensive to keep up - because they have maintained their fire alarm box system very well. It is still in excellent operating condition and they get fires and emergencies from these boxes.
