AMITYVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSSC), one of the world's leading solutions providers and manufacturers of high tech electronic intrusion security, Internet of Things (IoT) connected home, video and fire systems, as well as enterprise-class access control and door locking products, today announced the University of California Berkeley will install NAPCO's StarLink Commercial Fire Line Communicators.
The project has student housing and the main campus buildings targeted for installations. Student Housing located both on and off campus has over 125 sites where the StarLink FIRE will be installed. On the Main Campus there are approximately 400 locations where the StarLink FIRE will be used. The main emphasis of this conversion project is to replace older/existing copper wire phone lines, improve fire & life safety first response communication, CA code compliance and overall cost savings.
StarLink Fire Line Communicators replace the need for old fashion copper phone lines in order to send the alarm signal. With the use of the StarLink, the fire alarm signal is transmitted over the cellular networks from the premise to the central station. NAPCO receives a recurring monthly fee from the dealers for providing this service.
Richard Soloway, CEO of NAPCO commented, "We are excited to have our StarLink FIRE Line Communicators used at University of California Berkeley. This ongoing project will lead to cost savings for the University as well as improved first response communication and greatly enhanced student safety. As traditional copper phone lines continue to disappear we believe that the StarLink Fire Line Communicators are a great cost-effective solution to the problem. According to our internal research we believe there are millions of fire alarms in buildings in the US which can benefit from using our technology."
