Phone line Vs. Cellular Vs.
Internet MONITORING

Phone line monitoring

Phone Line monitoring is the most affordable monitoring because you are providing the communication path. However, the service is not always reliable and the line can be cut.

Cellular monitoring

Cellular monitoring has its good side and bad. The best thing about cellular, it is very difficult for a burglar to defeat. The bad; 95-98% reliable and a little slower, we all have had dropped calls or the local tower is down for a few minutes and our signal is gone. Cellular is also is subject to power outages. Another thing to consider is the technology will have to be upgraded every 4-8 years as the cell phone companies drop the older format in favor of newer faster ones.

Internet monitoring

Internet monitoring can still be tampered with but can also can be supervised notifying you when it is down. Internet is very fast and gives you control of your alarm from a web enabled phone and through our secure web server. The technology should be good for the next 20+ years and is very reliable. Our alarm system has its own battery backup, but your internet modem is subject to power outages; we highly recommend you get a UPC battery backup for your modem to keep the internet going in the event of a power outage.

Best, use both Cellular and Internet:

Dual path is the way to go. Send your signals through the internet for speed and through the cellular network for redundancy. Also when connected with most alarm systems this gives you the ability to receive text messages of alarms or people arming & disarming your alarm. Using our secure app on your smart phone or the web you can also control your system and see a log of your alarm activity. With the best reliability and convenience this is a must have for any new system and a terrific add on to most existing systems.
