UniAlarm Dispatcher A-Z

The UniAlarm Dispatcher allows of a full-scale, manufacturer-independent signal-distribution.

Remote monitoring service providers, authorities, fire departments and building managers can equally use it. With the help of the UniAlarm Dispatcher, a highly available signal-distribution network can be established from independent systems or networks. The system is independent from the individual remote signaling devices and supports almost all internationally used protocols.

UniAlarm Dispatcher Communicator

The UniAlarm Dispatcher Communicator is a signal relay device designed for the UniAlarm Dispatcher Server, which can communicate with several alarm systems in parallel – even using multiple protocols – by the computer’s serial ports, then forward the received signals to the UniAlarm Dispatcher Server.

The UniAlarm Dispatcher Communicator supports remote programming, so the remote relay switching of the supported alarm systems or the programming of the endpoints and signal concentrators on the basis of the current developments is possible directly from the system.

What is the UniAlarm Dispatcher?

The UniAlarm Dispatcher system is a modular, client-server based alarm-distribution surveillance system, which combines the management and administration functions much liked by operators with the modularity and integration aspects expected from the integrators.

With the help of the UniAlarm Dispatcher system, even multiple, independent alarm systems can be monitored. Their signals can also be distributed to individual surveillance stations according to preset criteria; either by signal type or by geographical regions.

The UniAlarm Dispatcher system not only ensures the receiving and the distribution of the signals, but it also provides the ability to set up process flow and manage the internal databases with its internal intelligent system. It also makes the management of signals clear and traceable for the operators.

All components of the UniAlarm Dispatcher system communicate through secure SSL connection in an IP network, and it is certified by the EN 54-21 standard.

The main functions of the UniAlarm Communicator:

  • Supports the VdS2465 and ContactID protocols
  • Provides remote control for certain systems
  • Supports sending SMS via GSM adapter (to the manual or automatic notices that can be sent about the particular signals)
  • Supports LED-based light signals to display internal information
  • The Watchdog system ensures continuous operation
  • Alarm signal on line disconnection
  • InQueue system for secure storage of incoming signals
  • OutQueue system for the secure implementation of remote control operations
  • Continuous logging in cooperation with the syslog system
  • The ability of fine tuning the logging level
  • Secure connection with the UniAlarm Server

The modularity and scalability of the complete UniAlarm Dispatcher system allows the system to process other protocols without the loss of operation time. For this our custom development service is available to our customers, which includes also the creation of unique modules and individual customizations.
