Naperville, Illinois Fire Department
Keltron Case Study
Because proceeds from subscriber alarm monitoring fees cover 100% of the equipment, installation and on-going maintenance costs, the City of Naperville was able to purchase and implement the entire system with no up front cost to the city.

Military Deployment
Keltron Case Study
Dual head ends ensure that a catastrophic event cannot render the entire system inoperable; radios function as both transmitters and repeaters.

Temple-Inland Forest Products Corporation
Monitoring a One Thousand Acre Lumber Mill – FPC Magazine
Every location included a valve house at which all flow controls were located. However, there was no automatic reporting of events at these valve houses to any central locations that were manned on a continual basis.

Lemont Fire Protection District
Keltron Case Study
No longer dependent on telephone lines, fire departments are now able to buy and develop their own digital radio-signaling network.
