The Dangers of Having Only Wired Monitoring Communications
What’s the weakest part of any home alarm system?
Many people would answer it’s the hardware of the system itself: communication errors, faulty sensors, or outdated equipment. But the chances of such hardware failures are low compared to the biggest weakness of all: using only a landline for your security system monitoring communications.
Even if your hardware fails, we can still contact you and help you troubleshoot your system. And in most cases, our UL listed Central Station will contact you immediately to inform you that your device has a hardware issue. But if you’re using our alarm monitoring service solely via a landline, what can you do if your landline goes out?
Answer: nothing. You might not even realize the line is out. If you haven’t given us an alternate form of communication, we can’t contact you. All it takes is a storm to knock down a phone line and your system will go unmonitored. And all an intruder has to do to break into your house is snip your landline. The alarm may go off, but like the proverbial tree in the forest, will anyone be around to hear it?
