Do I need a traditional land line telephone for Alarm Monitoring Services?
No, we offer most systems with WIFI or GSM Cellular modules so a home phone line is not needed.
What is the difference between using a WIFI Module and GSM Cellular Module?
A WIFI module using your local internet connection for communications to our central station. This option is the most popular because the equipment cost is lower and the monthly service is less, however it’s not as secure as a GSM Cellular Module. If someone cuts your cable or telephone lines that supply your internet connection or cuts your power line then your alarm system has no way to communication the alarm to our central station. GSM Cellular is powered by the alarm panel and uses the alarm panels back up battery so in the event of a power outage or someone cutting your connections the system will still communicate to our central station. Now days more and more customers our using a DUAL path Communications for a more secure connection for the alarm monitoring services.
What is a dual path communications method?
Dual path communications means your security system is using wifi/Ip and using a GSM Cellular module as a backup method of communications in the event the wifi/ip is not available.
