Home Security Systems Landline vs Cellular

Protecting your home today is more than just having strong locks on the doors and pets around the house barking when someone tries to intrude. In yesteryear, times were much simpler and sometimes the way of protecting your family and assets might not have been found in the technology that was available at the time. Unfortunately, that is no longer an option and locks and dogs simply are not enough protection. Security technology has become much more sophisticated and so have the criminals who intrude in our homes and threaten our very well-being. Even just a few years ago, home security hard wire alarm systems, that used conventional telephone cables were the only way that a security system could be employed. Today, cellular technology has made hard wired security systems, outdated and a thing of the past. Today, wireless alarm monitored security systems are dependable and completely reliable security defense shields. Cellular secured transmissions even operate with no electric power and these cellular signals are transmittable through most environmental issues.

Landlines vs. Cellular Security Systems

Some unfortunately still believe the use of a landline, or traditional telephone lines are the best and most reliable form of transmitting an alarm signal. Phone lines do operate on battery powered systems and are easy to repair but are also easy to disable. Hard wired phone systems are everywhere and accessibility make them vulnerable to disabling the security system attached. If that were to happen your security alarm system would not be able to send a signal to the monitoring station.  This is why the use of traditional phone lines for transmitting alarm signals basically have out lived their efficiency and usefulness.

Cellular Transmission is Better

In today’s technology cellular alarm signals operate on a wireless basis and as such is only compromised if the entire cellular apparatus is intermittently disturbed. Even poor transmission areas within buildings or properties can be aided by boasting technology to ensure you have a maintained communication link. Advanced security systems that use this communicative device transmits a signal in a wireless environment and the chances of disarming or disabling the communication are much harder to accomplish. The data signal your alarm system transmits to the monitoring station is much more secure and the cellular networks are more and more efficient. The chances of losing a signal from one of our monitored security systems are less remote and our technicians are always alerted when a system stops transmitting. If that happens the party is informed of the transmitting problem and contacts the carrying service. If the signal is interrupted then we will find the strongest signal available from another tower. If by some chance the cell tower goes down, the transmitting signal is automatically switched to a closely located tower. One more thing. Security alarm transmissions do not do well over VOIP (voice over internet protocol) and security system testing is a reliable way of determining the effectiveness of your system.
