The Benefits of Internet Alarm Monitoring
For years the standard communication method for household alarm systems was the traditional landline phone. This is quickly changing thanks to advancements in internet and GSM technology, which provide a faster and more complete communications that can also save money.
Using internet monitoring for your alarm services has many benefits:
- Fast and automatic notification services
- Savings from your current bill
- Improved safety and protection for you and your belongings
- Reliable and constant monitoring
- Increased peace of mind
Speed is of the Essence
Monitoring your alarm system via the internet ensures that you have a fast notification service in the case of something going wrong in your house. Quicker notification means potentially more lives and property saved. Your provider will monitor your system as frequently as every five minutes. And because internet monitoring allows you to choose a primary and secondary monitoring path, if your internet goes down, your secondary method (GSM) will immediately take over as opposed to having a technician visiting to fix a phone line.
Save Money on Your Bill
Using internet monitoring is cost effective. This method can help cut your bills significantly because it does not use as many resources as a home phone line due to low equipment costs and network rates. If your internet connection ever fails, you will be instantly alerted via your mobile device that your internet monitoring is down. This is a feature that cannot be provided through a traditional phone line.
Improved Safety for You and Your Home
While older security systems using phone lines can only send and receive alarm signals, internet monitoring allows for more detailed reports that include information such as your system’s battery levels, whether it is on or off and supervisory signals. This type of full event reporting is easily accessible online or via your mobile device.
