What is Sound Masking and Why Do You Need It

September 26th, 2019

Sound masking has been used for many years in financial, government, medical, educational, and judicial environments as well as any business that values speech privacy. Sound masking systems produce an ambient sound and when properly engineered and installed they can reduce the audibility of other conversations, increasing privacy and eliminating distractions. It can be installed in both new and existing facilities and is a good way of alleviating acoustical problems without the need to do a large remodel of your facility.

Many modern alarm systems communicate to central station using cellular networks. Some of these alarm systems were installed using a cellular communicator that operates on the older 2G network and are not compatible with the newer 3G/4G network. The FCC has approved legislation that allows cellular providers to completely discontinue their 2G service effective January 1, 2017. AT&T, a common provider of 2G service for alarm systems, has already stated their intention to discontinue their 2G service effective January 1, 2017. When the service providers shut down their 2G network, alarm systems using that network may no longer be able to communicate alarm conditions as intended​.
