Cellular Alarm Monitoring: the Next Level in Home Security
When it comes to home security, it is impossible to be too cautious. Cameras, alarms and any other protocols that can be put in place should be put in place – for the sake of your family’s safety. However, one aspect of home security that is often overlooked is security system cellular monitoring.
Traditional alarm systems use a landline to connect your security system with your provider’s security service center. If for any reason the landlines are disrupted, this connection is lost, without your security provider knowing.
This is what security system cellular monitoring works to prevent. With cellular alarm monitoring in place, should your land line be disrupted for any reason, the cellular monitoring system notifies your security service provider and maintains contact until the line is reconnected.
In addition to acting as a backup, cellular monitoring carries with it four distinct additional advantages to consider:
- System Works Even if Your Phone Stops — If your line is disabled by an intruder, the system still works and relays the intrusion to your provider immediately.
- Changing Service Is Not a Problem — No additional work is needed if you decide to change phone service providers.
- No Phone? No Problem! — Monitoring can continue even if you decide to drop your landline provider altogether.
- Faster Than Landlines — Oftentimes, cellular monitoring has a quicker connection time to the central station than landline service does.
