At the customer premises, the UltraConnect security communicator captures alarms from the customer’s alarm system using DTMF, modem, serial or pins. These alarms are forwarded over an encrypted channel to the UHS UltraAgent server.

Alarms are then forwarded to a security company’s monitoring software. Ademco685, Surgard and SIA Automation receiver protocols are supported.

The UltraAgent server polls the UltraConnect units over all available paths to verify the communication channel. Polling rates are configurable on a per interface basis. Typically a faster rate is used on the wireline (eg IP or ADSL) interface and a slower rate on the wireless (eg GPRS) interface. If the polling fails on the wireline interface, the rate is increased on the wireless interface to maintain the grade of service..
