With technology advancing so rapidly, we’re all ditching our landline (or ditched it ages ago!). Most people primarily rely on their cell phone for communication. Why should it be any different when it comes to your alarm system? 

Many burglars know they can cut your phone line to disrupt alarm communication.

How can you avoid having your alarm monitoring service interrupted by a burglar cutting a phone line? For the safest home security, invest in replacing your landline with cellular alarm monitoring or adding cellular alarm service as back up to your phone line.

Cellular alarm monitoring, sometimes referred to as wireless alarm monitoring, is a state-of-the-art communication method for alarm systems. But how does it work? The majority of alarm systems available on the market are compatible with  cellular technology. There are many different cellular alarm devices available and Alarm Relay can support the majority of them.

Cellular Alarm Monitoring Features

In addition to the safety benefits that come from using cellular monitoring, some new alarm features may also be available when you upgrade your system to the latest and greatest. Upgrading your system to cellular allows you to remote control your alarm system from wherever you are. How awesome would it be checking on your home or business, using your smartphone, while you’re out? Using the right cellular module puts the technology in your hands.

The main reason so many people choose to use a home alarm system is protection. Investing in cellular technology for your security system boosts your level of protection. You can rest easy knowing, when paired together, a cellular device and your alarm system give you the backup solutions you need in case of an emergency. If the power goes out, the cellular communicator uses your alarm system’s backup battery, so if an intruder tries to break-in, the cellular communicator is always ready to report to Alarm Relay’s monitoring center. The same cannot always be said for Internet or phone line communication. Those solutions do not provide the best security. Once you have a cellular module, whether it serves as the primary method of communication or back-up to your internet, you no longer have to worry about intruders cutting your phone line or internet service to break-in your place. What a RELIEF!
