Thursday, January 9, 2014

WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J.—COPS Monitoring now offers IP, SGM and GPRS monitoring for the entire line of security and access control products it offers from Paradox, the company announced Jan. 7. 

“We continually look for ways to support our dealer base by offering leading edge technology and we are pleased to add the Paradox IP receivers to our portfolio of services,” Jim McMullen, COPS Monitoring president and COO, said in a prepared statement.

The Paradox panel, combining security and access control, is supported by the Control4 automation platform, and allows online access and remote administration, said Jon Butler, VP of sales for Paradox’s U.S. master distributor. “Currently, nobody else offers that functionality from table or smartphone apps,” he said in a prepared statement.

COPS Monitoring is now using Paradox IPR512 receivers in its New Jersey and Texas central stations, on different IP addresses, according to the release.

COPS dealers will receive discount pricing on Paradox equipment because of the company’s partnership with the SS&Si Dealer Network, McMullen said in the announcement.
