The Role of Advanced Communication Technologies in Maitland Fire Alarm Monitoring

Technology has transformed the way we live, work, and communicate, enabling us to do things faster and more efficiently than ever before. Our Maitland fire alarm monitoring system uses cutting-edge tech to keep you safe. Here’s how.

The first fire alarm system in the U.S. was a Boston bell tower in 1852. It was advanced for its time but still depended on someone seeing a fire, then reporting it. When electricity entered the picture, fire detection was possible, which automated fire alarm monitoring somewhat. Let’s stroll down memory lane as we follow the tech transformation of fire alarm monitoring.

The Landline

By the time DynaFire was incorporated in 2004, Maitland fire alarm monitoring communication was being sent over phone lines. Remember the ringing, screeching, and bings of dial-up modems? That slow connection eventually happened over an old-school landline. The same landline competing with telephone traffic and your fax machine (remember those?) was not the fastest way to communicate a fire emergency.

Cellular Networks

Cell phones were still relatively new in the early 2000s. Technology advances had already shrunk them from the enormous blocks that needed to be held with two hands to the old-school flip phones (that seem to be making a comeback). Cell towers were popping up nationwide, and we were all vying for precious bandwidth.

Our fire alarm technicians set up our first monitoring system using cellular networks, which, at the time, were the fastest option available. It was a good system, but not great. Remember dropped calls? Having one tiny bar of reception in the middle of town? Having to go outside to get a call to go through? So do we. And this wasn’t good enough for our clients’ emergency signals. There had to be a better way.

DynaNet Was Born

At DynaFire, we are the opposite of complacent. We are ambitious, driven, and proactive in everything we do. We wanted to ditch landlines and cell towers and go 100% wireless. When we saw that cellular networks weren’t cutting it, we created our own monitoring system called DynaNet

Cutting the cord allows us the ability to offer easy installation without the need for digging, trenching, or cabling. Set up is a breeze because there are no wires (other than power and internet, of course). What other benefits does DynaNet offer? We’re glad you asked because we love to talk about how our Maitland fire alarm monitoring works!

  • Efficiency – Our wireless mesh network is an end-to-end delivery system for commercial fire alarm systems. It is fault-tolerant, 100% efficient, and the most reliable wireless fire alarm monitoring system available. 
  • Speed – Every time a new DynaNet transmitter is installed, that property immediately becomes both a transmitter, receiver, and repeater of emergency communications. The more properties we add to our DynaNet network, the faster our system becomes.
  • Scalability – Constant adjustment of the emergency signal path allows our network to grow exponentially and allows your business to scale across the region, state, or the world.

Another considerable advantage DynaNet has over a monitoring system that uses cell towers: you won’t have to worry about network sunsets. Remember 2G and 3G? Where did they go? They were replaced by 4G and 5G, which will eventually be sunsetted to make way for the next, faster network. Maitland fire alarm monitoring

Each time a network shuts down, every system dependent on that network must transition to a new network. With DynaNet, the only sunsets you’ll see are out your window.
