DOES MY ALARM SYSTEM NEED A PHONE LINE? MAYBE!


One of the biggest trends in the security industry is that homeowners are cancelling their home phone lines in record numbers. Due to the popularity of smartphones and affordability of high speed internet, 50% of homes no longer have a land line.  

Most traditional alarm systems DO require a phone line to transmit signals to a 24/7 Monitoring Station – no matter who your security provider is.

Newer security systems that have been installed within the last 5-7 years often have built in cellular modems. However, cellular providers have been phasing out older 2G and 3G connections and you still may not be properly protected.     

If you’re uncertain about your coverage or have recently cancelled your home phone line, your should contact your security provider immediately to confirm your coverage. Reed Security has a $0 DOWN 4G LTE PROMO in place for clients wishing to cancel their home or business land line.



What Are My Options If I Do Not Have Phone Line?

1. Local System

The alarm system is no longer monitored. Your emergency contacts, the Police and the Fire Department are no longer dispatched. You no longer qualify for a home insurance discount (max. 25% per year).  

2. I.P. Signalling

An I.P. communicator is added to your alarm system and signals are transmitted to a 24/7 Monitoring Station via high speed internet connection.

3. Cellular Signalling

A cellular communicator is added to your alarm system and signals are transmitted to a 24/7 Monitoring Station via SaskTel, Telus, Bell and Rogers cellular towers.

This is by far the most popular option due to the speed, reliability, increased security and affordability.
 


In fact, 90 percent of Reed Security’s new subscribers have Alarm.com 4G LTE communication. This dedicated connection works if the phone line is cut, power is out or internet is down.

Once you’re on the Alarm.com platform you have access to one single app that can:

  • Arm/disarm your security system remotely
  • Receive instant arming/disarming alerts
  • Manage users and control what they can do
  • Control smart thermostats, lights, door locks and garage doors
  • View ReedHD™ indoor, outdoor and doorbell cameras
