How To Get Voice Alerts To Your Cell Phone With An RTU

If you're responsible for remote network sites, you know you can't always be in front of a monitoring terminal. You might be out driving to your remote sites or maybe even sleeping in the middle of the night. But it doesn't matter the circumstance, you should always be notified in a timely manner when network threats happen.

Our engineers have already developed a light-capacity RTU called the NetGuardian LT that will send you voice call alerts, but what if you have larger sites? You need a medium-capacity RTU that also supports this same capability.

That's where the NetGuardian Voice 16 comes in. This full-featured RTU offers a higher alarm capacity for larger sites.

With 16 discretes, 2 or 18 control relays, and 4 analogs, you'll easily keep tabs on your medium-sized sites with DPS' Alarm ShoutTM technology. This text-to-speech functionality is fully customizable.

The NetGuardian Voice 16 will call your cell or home phone numbers with voice alerts for the alarms you specify. Incoming calls are an excellent choice for receiving alerts after-hours or when you're out in the field. You can use an automated voice or record your own voice.

Key benefits of the NetGuardian Voice 16

  • Get more alarm capacity - Get voice alerts plus more alarm coverage for larger sites
  • Flexible control relay capacity - Order your RTU with either 2 or 18 control relay outputs. 18 outputs is an excellent number when you have a lot of equipment to control
  • Dials your cell phone or home phone - Tells you of incoming alarms in plain English (either automated voice or the clarity of your own voice recording
  • Ack alarms from anywhere in the field - Acknowledge alarms right from your touch-tone phone via DTMF acknowledge
  • Get auto-dialer technology + trusted NetGuardian features - Features Alarm Shout TM text-to-speech technology
  • Stay informed - Dial into the unit at any time to check alarm status
  • Optional sensor power output - Power your external sensor right from the RTU, which increases reliability (choose either +12v or +24v, similar to the NetGuardian 832A G5)
  • Optional 4-port 10/100 Ethernet switch - Provide LAN for 4 site devices, all in the same rack unit as your RTU (similar to the NetGuardian 832A G5)
