Telguard Licenses Technology To Mytrex For All-In-One Cellular PERS Solution

Stocks in this article: WRLS

ATLANTA, March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telguard, a division of Telular Corporation (Nasdaq:WRLS), and a leader in alarm monitoring solutions and services, today announced that it has licensed its cellular technology to Mytrex, Inc., a manufacturer of medical alarm systems. Under the terms of the exclusive agreement, Mytrex will use Telguard's cellular technology and service as the communications system for the MXD3G, a complete turnkey cellular PERS solution.

Today, nearly one-third of all American homes do not have a landline. This growing trend is also reaching independent seniors who choose to get rid of their phone line to save money. Until now, cutting the phone line also meant losing their medical response service which required a landline connection. Mytrex's MXD3G, integrated with Telguard's cellular technology and service, provides a robust, easy to install cellular solution without the need for a telephone line. Ideal for new and existing customers, the MXD3G allows seniors to access help in case of a medical emergency at an affordable price.

"We were looking for a manufacturer with proven cellular technology and service to enhance our product line and help us address the growing no-landline senior population," said Richard Bangerter, president, Mytrex, Inc. "Telguard's extensive experience in alarm communications for security and the fact that they introduced the first cellular PERS communicator, made them the ideal technology partner."  

Unlike other solutions, Telguard's approach to cellular PERS communications does not require central stations to purchase and maintain proprietary equipment. As long as a dealer's central station advertises support for two-way voice, the MXD3G using Telguard service can be installed to deliver it.

"Licensing the Telguard technology used in the TG-P, our own PERS cellular communicator, is a natural next step for us in this market," said Shawn Welsh, vp of marketing and business development, Telular. "In Mytrex we found a company passionate about quality, innovation and, most importantly, reliable senior monitoring. The focus of their business is PERS, so why not work with them to develop a best of breed product together."
