New SiteSentry Security System
At Last - A security system that gets help
in a hurry with no monthly fees or contract!
new SiteSentry is designed especially for
users in rural areas where response time is slow,
by groups of people working together (business,
residential, church and volunteer fire
departments), by those wanting the fastest
possible response time, and those who don't want a
continuing monthly charge.
SiteSentry is ideal for use by
volunteer fire departments. Unauthorized
entry, tampering by copper thieves, even fire can
be reported directly to firefighter pagers,
radios, or optionally, cell phones with no delay
through alarm services or even 911. And, there are
NO monthly fees! Great for residential
communities with neighbors acting as first
responders or churches with elders and deacons
being the first responders. Click here

that Motorola may be ineligible to sell many of
their products, including the popular Minitor VI
pager, through GSA, or to users making payment with

arrived at a school located about an hour away from
Birmingham where I had an appointment. After walking
a quarter mile from the nearest parking place, and
up two flights of stairs to the front door, I was
greeted by a locked door and a keypad. To be
admitted, I had to return to my car, use my cell
phone to call the office, and make the trek back to
the office - Not very parent, vendor, or visitor

Energy chooses Falcon Wireless for improved plant
provides efficient and affordable solution for OSHAS
After reviewing the
requirements of OSHAS 18001 (Click here
for more information), it was determined that
electronic wireless call boxes could be located
through the plant production area to allow employees
to summon assistance at the press of a button.
Falcon Wireless offered such a product, but Siemens
wanted special features that were not available in
the standard production models. So, we custom built
it! It's called an Emergency Alert Station (EAS).

best school radio ever!
pricing this month. Buy 9, get one free. Buy
17 and get 3 free!
We got a call from
a school principal the other day. His school uses
radios for bus loading, general administration,
security, housekeeping, and maintenance. They had
several problems. The current radios had dead spots
(multi-building campus), the ladies (and the men too
although they would not admit it) hated the current
radios. They were bulky with antennas designed to
stick the user in the ribs. The batteries required
frequent replacement, and the range had never been
the same since narrow banding. But the BIGGEST
problem was too much talking on a single channel! We
offered a simple and affordable solution? Want to
know what it was? Click here!
Getting to know our Premier Partners.......
Alert LLC of Boca Raton, Florida - Our featured
partner for the month of October!
Earlier in this eNewsletter, we pointed out one of
the potential problems is choosing non-US made
products. There are other reasons for favoring US
manufacturers. That is why we recommend the US Alert
WatchDog pagers for our firefighter and industrial
customers. We are proud to be associated with US
Alert. As you get to better know this company,
and the products they offer, you'll see why the
decision was made to work together. We're glad to be
a part of the team! You can learn more about the
WatchDog pagers by clicking here.
Marisa Jones, a recent arrival on this planet, has
approved return to work by her mom, and our highly
depended on one - Joy Jones. From the comfort of her
queen sized high chair (complete with safety
harness), Adalynn has requested that we take good
care of her mother who returns this coming Friday.
Aunt in law Jennifer will be assuming day care of
Adalynn while her mother helps take care of us.
Thanks for visiting with us. We appreciate you!
