Landline, Internet broadband, or cellular are the three ways your alarm system connects to the monitoring station. Which way is best? Should there be a backup connection?
There are three types of monitoring connections widely available in the industry, the tried and true land line, No.2 is wireless or digital cell and no.3 is internet. For the optimum protection and response we recommend redundant communications of 2 out of 3. However, the most popular today is wireless or digital cellular. Digital cellular is fast, accurate and fully supervised. Land line phones, most people are dropping them; many alarm companies are trying to connect the land line phone to a Voice Over IP. It’s taking in analog technology and shoving it in to a digital platform. Not a preferred application but we are working a pinch. Although I do need to make a disclaimer, most of your cable operators do not recommend that you connect an analog alarm to Voice Over IP so there’s something to be aware of. Another thing about our company is that we are specialist in security and security is our primary focus, so don’t be fooled by bundling different services in there and get trapped in to a package you don’t want. However internet communication is fast and accurate so we do rely on multiple system operators to provide good quality internet service and so together we wireless digital cell and internet you can have a great performance. So have no worries, we are OnGuard.
