No Phone Line at Home? No Power? No Problem!
Is it getting harder to reach your friends on their home phones? That is because most people are leaving their landline phones behind, and only using mobile phones for their personal communication. So the question becomes, what does that mean for security systems?
For systems that are hard wired, it means their alarms will not be able to be monitored. But if you switch to a wireless home security system, you can still receive alarm monitoring services – all the time, whether or not there is a landline and whether or not there is power in the home. The technology that powers this is the radio-based technology known as the global system for mobile communications, or GSM.
How do “No Phone Line” Alarms Work?
Remember: With a landline phone, intruders could cut the alarm service by snipping the phone cord. That is never a concern with this “no phone line necessary” alarm service. And no, there are no “special” cellular contracts needed.
Is this a Backup Measure?
Some companies may call this a “cellular backup” measure; at Knight Security Systems, we just call it wireless alarm monitoring! Eventually, landline phones will be obsolete and this will be the only alarm monitoring there is. That’s why it’s best to make the transition now!
