ATLANTA, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Numerex Corp. (Nasdaq: NMRX), a leader in wireless M2M solutions, announced today that CellemetryXG Customer Services LLC, a Numerex subsidiary, has signed a multi-year data network and customer services agreement with DEWALT, a leading manufacturer and marketer of power tools and accessories.

Under terms of the agreement, Numerex will provide the Cellemetry(R) network and outsourced customer support services for end users of DEWALT's SITELOCK product. Launched at the International Builders' Show, SITELOCK is an innovative, portable, wireless alarm system that is designed specifically for the construction industry and uses patented wireless technology to monitor numerous pieces of equipment or various areas of a job-site simultaneously.

Numerex will deliver the wireless network and services in conjunction with Alarm Monitoring Station partners through their Atlanta-based subsidiary, CellemetryXG Customer Services, a provider of value-added network, customer care and support services.

Dedicated to the delivery of wireless M2M Communications, the Cellemetry Network will deliver alarm messages from the SITELOCK unit and the associated sensors, to the Numerex Operations Centers in Atlanta. From there the alarm messages will be delivered via IP or PSTN to the Alarm Monitoring Station. Network reliability and coverage are assured over the Cellemetry Network's extensive and redundant wireless footprint, which delivers nearly one million data messages a day to and from remote assets and facilities.

"We are very pleased to enter this alliance with DEWALT, the construction industry leader, to deliver the network and supporting services for this ground-breaking security solution," said Stratton Nicolaides, CEO of Numerex. "This agreement is an excellent example of Numerex's unique ability to deliver full end-to-end solutions for the wireless security monitoring and communications industry and the M2M industry as a whole."

Chris Allen, VP of Marketing for DEWALT's Security Business Group stated, "We were looking for a partner that knows the wireless and security industry and has a track record for solution delivery. That's what we found in Numerex. The comprehensive nature of the Numerex M2M solution completes the SITELOCK product offering and provides the SITELOCK consumer with a convenient and proven network solution. The alliance with Numerex provides us with a scalable network and service infrastructure that can easily support future DEWALT security products."

  • 7x24 customer service support for SITELOCK end-users
  • Network operational support

"Our CellemetryXG Service will provide much more than the network for DEWALT. It is uniquely positioned to deliver comprehensive network and support solutions for SITELOCK customers."

Scheduled for delivery in early 2005, Numerex will provide SITELOCK customers with operational and customer support from its Network Operations Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The NOC operates 7/24 to safeguard, manage and deliver customer data.

Numerex's own robust M2M wireless solutions powered by CellemetryXG include: VendView(TM), the vending intelligence solution; Uplink(TM), the dedicated wireless communications solution for security monitoring; and MobileGuardian(R), the vehicle location and recovery solution.
