Phone Line Monitoring
With phone-line based monitoring we take advantage of your existing phone service to transmit alarm signals from your alarm system to the monitoring center. When your alarm system is tripped it not only sounds your local siren but also sends the alarm signal to the monitoring center … over your phone line. Phone line monitoring is cost effective and has been the traditional way of monitoring alarms for many years.
Cellular monitoring works independent of your phone system. The cell unit is a separate piece of equipment that can be added to your alarm system to allow communication through cell towers instead of using your phoneline. No landline or internet is needed. Cellular monitoring is typically more secure than landline monitoring because an intruder cannot physically cut the cellular connection. The cell unit is also undetectable and indestructible from the outside of the home.
Smart Monitoring is cool! With it you have the ability to arm/disarm your alarm system from almost anywhere with your iPhone, Droid, Blackberry, or PC. You can also check to see if you remembered to arm your system. Because it utilizes a cellular connection it also includes all the advantages of cellular monitoring - no phone line required. Simple, convenient, and secure.
Regular smoke detectors save lives but they only work if you are home to hear them. Our monitored smoke detectors are connected to your security system and are monitored 24 hours a day – even when your alarm system isn’t armed. If a fire is detected an alert is immediately sent to our monitoring center so that we can dispatch the fire department. Monitored smoke detectors can be added to any of our residential alarm packages.
