By choosing the right fit for you home, you’ll rest easy knowing you’re always protected.

Good Protection

Landline Monitoring

Most Affordable

With a landline monitoring system, the control panel is directly connected to your traditional phone line.

When an alarm is triggered, the security system transmits

a signal through the physical connection (i.e. your traditional phone line) to our In-house Central Dispatch Station.It’s important to remember that landlines can be physically cut by a burglar or natural force such as falling trees.

That’s why we always recommend using a backup system – such as internet or cellular – whenever possible.

Homes in a cellular dead zone that also don’t have access to high-speed internet. Best if you want bare minimum security at the lowest cost.

Homes with smart home devices or homes without landlines. Not recommended if you want mobile apps, remote monitoring or a fast connection. Landlines have become rare as communication technology and web services advance.

  • It is the most affordable option.
  • Works with older security systems.
  • Typically doesn’t require additional equipment to be purchased or installed.
  • Can be easily disconnected by cutting the wire.
  • You may not have a phone line services available.
  • Uses outdated technology.
  • Not compatible with home automation or interaction between devices.
  • No way for emergency services to know if you’re line has been cut.

Better Protection

Internet Monitoring

Fastest

Internet communication is built for speed and efficiency. It’s the most common option and helps you ditch the landline altogether.

When the alarm is triggered, your security system sends the signal

through your Internet service provider.

With high-speed connections, signal speed increases significantly, often alerting the monitoring station within a few seconds of any alert.It’s important to remember that your internet routers may shut down if your building loses power.

Without the internet, no signal can be sent to the monitoring station.

That’s why we recommend using an internet system as your primary, and a cellular monitoring system as a backup. If the internet were to go down, the cellular connection would kick in and ensure you’re always protected.

Homes with high-speed internet, homes with smart devices for remote monitoring, and mobile app control.

Homes without access to reliable high-speed internet.

  • Signal sends up to 4 times faster than a landline.
  • Works with most older security systems
  • Allows you to monitor remotely.
  • Easy to install.
  • Easily integrates with smart home technology.
  • Can be disconnected by cutting off the power supply, we recommend using Cellular Monitoring as a backup communication method.

Cellular Monitoring

Most Secure

Cellular monitoring is the most secure of the 3 options.

The system is connected to our Professional Monitoring Station through AT&T, Verizon or similar cellular networks.

Cellular networks are the hardest for burglars to compromise since there are no wires to cut and the communication is encrypted.

It’s also a dedicated line strictly for your Alarm System, so the signal isn’t shared with other homes or networks.

For the most secure and reliable system, we recommend internet monitoring as your primary and cellular as your backup. Internet monitoring is the fastest, and cellular monitoring is the most reliable and secure.

Homes with strong cellular signal, homes with smart devices and automation.

 

Homes in a cellular dead-zone.

 
  • Faster than a landline.
  • Allows you to monitor remotely.
  • Works with most older security systems
  • You do not need a hard phone line.
  • The most secure and hardest for burglars to compromise.
  • Encrypted communication on a private network.
  • Wireless.
  • Easy to install.
  • Easily integrates with smart home technology.
  • Signal depends on network strength.
