Mountain Alarm Offers New Motion Sensing Technology

Press Release

September 26, 2012

Mountain Alarm, a division of Fire Protection Service Corporation, announced that it is partnering with Xandem Technology, a Utah startup company based in Salt Lake City, to make Tomographic Sensing Detection (TMD) available to commercial and residential customers throughout the Intermountain West. TMD is created by installing a network of wireless ‘nodes’ that sense motion within a specified area and send a signal back to a receiver at the security panel. Unlike current infrared motion sensors or beam sensors, TMD does not require a direct line of site in order to detect movement and register an alarm. TMD sensors can be placed in cabinets or even built into the walls without degrading the detection sensitivity.

Mountain Alarm deployed one of the first Xandem TMD networks in 2011 at a warehouse facility for a client in which other detection technologies were ineffective.

“The harsh environment, temperature changes, large coverage area and equipment blocking the line of site created a very difficult challenge in which other devices would easily false alarm,” said Brad Nye, general manager for Mountain Alarm Northern Utah. “The Xandem TMD solution was easy to install, offers complete and reliable coverage, and hasn’t resulted in a single false alarm.”

“There are several game-changing advantages that stand out about Xandem TMD,” said Mountain Alarm’s Director of Marketing, Justin Fawson. “Not only can we connect them to existing panels, they’re ideal in harsh environments and can be installed in places where they cannot be seen. This appeals to our customers who want discretion and, more importantly, prevents would-be intruders from locating the devices in order to circumvent or defeat them. Even coming through the wall would not prevent detection by a TMD network.”

Xandem TMD is immediately available through Mountain Alarm to customers in Utah, with availability in Idaho, Washington and Colorado later this year. For a TMD quote or to speak with a salesperson, visit http://www.mountainalarm.com and click on the Xandem TMD link.
