Three communication methods link you to our monitoring centers
1. Landline telephone
This is the conventional way of communicating with monitoring centers. This is safe and inexpensive as long as the phone line is working. Standard phone lines are in fact prone to interruptions during adverse environmental conditions or natural disasters and portability is limited. Both cell phone and Internet alternatives add increased security.
2. Cell phone
A cell phone can be an additional line or alternative to the standard phone line. Cell coverage has considerably improved in the past few years. This means there are fewer interrupted calls. A dedicated cell number is used to transmit the signal from a security system at the monitoring center. This does not require a standard landline to be present. It is slight more costly than traditional means of communication but is still cheaper than adding an additional landline.
3. Standard Internet and WiFi
Another way to connect to the remote monitoring center is the Internet. This means of communication is more and more reliable. Extremely affordable, even if there may be some installation costs for equipment. No landline is required; it is an excellent way of saving a cell phone line or as a way to connect independently. However, given regional differences and differences between suppliers, and because of the possibility of downtime, this means of communication is only recommended in some areas. Speak with your local service supplier about the service guarantee. This means of communication is completely portable.
