Abstract

The present invention may be viewed as providing a system for interconnecting a plurality of remote devices (130, 140) to a site controller (150) in an automated monitoring system (100) via a wireless communication network (165). The automated monitoring system (100) may be configured for monitoring and controlling the plurality of remote devices (130, 140) using a host computer adapted to communicate with the site controller (150) via a communication network (120). Briefly described, in one embodiment, the system (100) comprises a plurality of transceivers (135) and a plurality of repeaters (125). Each of the plurality of transceivers (135) have a unique identifier. Furthermore, each of the plurality of transceivers (135) may be configured for communication with one of the plurality of remote devices (140) and configured to receive a sensor data signal from the corresponding remote device (140) and provide a data message over the wireless communication network (165) using a predefined communication protocol.
