The Honeywell Fire-Watch™ IPDACT-2UD is a commercial fire internet IP alarm communicator with daughter board, from Fire-Lite Alarms, that is designed to transmit fire alarm system information to the GeoArm central monitoring station over any standard IP network. The IPDACT-2UD connects to a fire alarm control panel's standard telephone ports with no changes required to panel's existing configuration. The IPDACT-2UD offers exclusive upload/download capabilities, a 512 bit encryption for added security and a reliable connection to GeoArm's central station monitoring facility.
