Emergency Communication

In addition to fire detection capabilities, we also specialize in the design and installation of bi-directional amplification (BDA) technologies that help prevent further injuries and save more lives by enhancing in-building radio frequency (RF) signal coverage for clear and reliable emergency communications between first responders inside a building and emergency personnel outside the building.

Our BDA solutions deliver reliable performance to meet signal strength requirements in the most challenging RF environments like low-E glass, concrete, metal, below-ground structures, and other RF interference or obstructions. And they’re tested and evaluated in accordance with UL 2524 1st Edition requirements.

Reduce the need for onsite security personnel, and eliminate the expense of changing locks with employee turnover.


Control by user, time, or location, and easily adjust and customize individual user access. Lock and unlock doors according to customized scheduling, and integrate with a digital video recorder (DVR) or network video recorder (NVR).

In a post-COVID world, take access control to the next level with contactless facial recognition and temperature monitoring. The health and safety of employees and visitors is more important than ever, and Thompson Solutions Group technologies effectively help limit the spread of disease by reducing or eliminating access-point contact and congestion in any environment, from retail to manufacturing, government, education and healthcare.
